Found this vintage wool among some crochet samples from my Grandma.  It looks a bit moth-eaten, and I'm hesitant to start unwinding it.  I guess I think it might all come away as bits and pieces in my hands.

Anybody want to throw out some wild suggestions for what I should do with it?

My DD needed a vaguely historic costume for a vaguely historic activity with her youth group.  We're not talking accurate reenactment, just give the modern kid an idea of what life was like on the frontier.  Think Little House on the Prairie.  We got the blouse at a thrift shop (placket, cuffs, collar, not happenin' on my time), but I made her skirt (large pockets) and bonnet from stash.  She was pleased, and survived the adventure.

Sorry, but I am sooo thrilled by my dotee!  It's amazing fabulous! 

It's Moon River by Henry Mancini...

from Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn!!!

Wile E Songdog did some beautiful beadwork.  Thank you for my wonderful dotee!

More patchwork skirts. 

I plan on having a yard sale this weekend to sell these.  I also want to put out at least half of my fabric stash.  Going into the disaster room now to see what I feel like I can let go.

K_Starr -- that sounds like quite a project, but lots of fun!

This past month I've been making little girl skirts out of a bunch of small pieces of fabric I've inherited.  I end up with about 4" squares from most of them.  I'm hoping I can sell these.  It would be nice if I had a beta-tester running around so I would know if I got the sizing right, but I'm no longer in the market for one of those!   Roll Eyes

I got my dotee from Ludi and I am so thrilled!  She made me Edgar Allan Poe!

Love that characteristic Ludi stitching for hair.  He carries a book with the first stanza of The Raven, and he's got black, feather wings.  And the halo?  She titled it "A-Poe-theosis."  So very clever!  Apotheosis is 'the elevation or exaltation of a person to the rank of god.' 

Thank you, Ludi!  He's fantastic!

That's a lot of hats!  And here's another thumbs-up on figuring out those cables.

Always -- good job resisting!

Last week I gave away a box of fabric.  
I finished a toddler-sized shrug.

And I made myself an Easter skirt from stash.

Yea!!!  I got my dotee, and I am thrilled!  I got the whole solar system.

Alwaysinmyroom even made the galaxy fabric with bleach.  What did you use for Saturn's 'rings?'  The best part, to me, is Pluto hanging on down below.  On my questionnaire I put "Pluto is still a planet to me."  And she named the dotee 'Poor Pluto!'  I've been smiling all day!

Here are some dotees I've made the last couple of months, completely from stash.

First is the tulip for the Feb Flora swap.

And here's what I made this month for the Celestial dotee swap.  On the left is my practice, which ended up too big.  On the right is the dotee I sent.  I feel like they're sisters.

Yea!  I received my dotee from Wile E Songdog, and I'm so impressed with all the work that went into it.  I realized recently that I didn't really give her any easy options on my list (sorry).  Here's my lupine lady.

There are lots of tiny stitches holding on the florets, and little seed beads.

I have loved lupines ever since reading 'Miss Rumphius' by Barbara Cooney when I was younger.  But I've never been able to grow any, so this is a treat.  Thanks Wile E Songdog!
