I got my niece a mini purse that I can do hand embroider (well at least just a back stitch) on it. I had bought some really nice varigated thread but it is too thick for the needle. What I could get on the needle and embroider doesn't look that great. So I had to go out last night and get a different kind, and I will try to start over tonight. Don't you just hate having to start over on a project?

I really need to be doing this! I've been over at the procrastination thread but my craft supplies are over flowing. I try to say "no new (fill in the blank with whatever I'm obsessed with at that moment) until I finish some stuff", but it's not working out so well. I am going to have to buy 2 more balls of yarn tonite to finish up gift/swap stuff but I have a ton of projects that I have supplies for that I need to get around to doing.

I feel like we are fizzleing out on our destashing. 

Still destashing here.   Just too busy to take photos yet.  I will be doing a major post at the end of the month with photos.

Progress so far

My list of things that I plan to make in my destashing efforts for May.  Some of these things are already started in April

1. cat dolls -  4 in progress
2. Frog dolls  - 2 in progress
3. cardinal Christmas tree ornaments - no progress
4. Finish the quilt I started in February  - pics of my fabrics posted. progress stalled
5. Another bunny. - no progress
6. couple of more dolls -  one almost finished
7. geisha brooches - 6 in progress

Just a few pics to prove I'm still on the de-stashing bandwagon.  May has been so pretty most of my time has spent enjoying the weather, but I've managed to get some mini-mittens done to use up the tiny balls of fingering weight yarn in the stash.

There are several other projects underway, and I'm making slow but steady progress through the stash.

It's been a bad month for destashing. Been buying for specific projects. Here is the one small bottlecap pincushion I made all from stash. It even fits one of the months themes, since it's part of a b-day gift for my mom.

He even has a tail that you can't see. Not to bad for my first attempt!

I made this quilt this weekend it is from a layer cake 10" squares.  I had the layer cake for about a year but I just bought the pattern (Scrappy Circles from Carolina Patchworks).  I also had to get some new fabric for the backing and binding nothing in my stash looked right.  The big fat cat I have had for a few years and she just had to sit on my quilt.

I have had this fabric and the checked ricrac trim in my stash for at least 10 years.  Even the patern I wanted to make this apron for.  This is really a full coverage apron covers all of the front and back.

I am jealous that your stash had such pretty fabrics for the quilt.  It looks lovely (so does the cat; she's doing the same "glamour pose" as mine does).
I like the apron too.  I don't think I've ever seen checked ricrac before.

I'm still working on my de-stashing, currently on a never-ending scarf.  It is very slow going.
