white- I decided I need to stay ahead on my etsy shop themes. So I was planning to use some of my white eyelet, muslin, and vintage trims for something wedding themed. I will probably tea dye.

stripes- I have striped linen I am saving for drawstring pants.

myself- ? I have a couple vintage copper charms I have been thinking of making for myself. I need something to finish it. Beads, chain?

challenge- finding, sorting, and making a home for my stash would help with my crafting.

I ordered a 10" heddle loom to make scarves. that should help me destash.

The striped theme inspired me to finish a WIP I started a month or two ago. It's a stashbuster rug for my wood floor. It can get quite cold in the winter, and now when I wake up in the morning, I won't have to put my feet on the cold floor while I look for my slippers!

I have a good start on my white item, which is a Doctor Who adipose, and I have 4 days off from work, so I hope to finish it.

I've also decided to use up some of the Granny's daughters I received in a swap to make a seat cover for my vehicle. I have heated leather seats, which is great for cold weather, but the black leather can get quite hot in the summer, so having a cover will come in handy then.

Will do personal swaps, just ask!

i can scratch striped off the list for this month  Grin
i had actually wanted to make this fabric into a skirt but when i got ready to cut today i could hear my bempa reminding me of how i have made way too many already. i only had a yard but since i am teeny tiny it was just enough for a simple tube dress. i traced the patern fro on of my fave jersey knit store bought dresses. i learned that jersey knot does not move through the machine as easy as cotton but i got the hang of it in no time. any jersey knit sewing advice?

i also folded/rolled the tube top part down for a cool skirt

yay for 2 in 1  Grin

apm, I am so jealous of your teeny tiny-ness. I would love to fit into a dress made from one yard of fabric! Especially one that cute!

And yarnbombinb is awesome. Basically, people knit or crochet a piece and then sew it onto things out in the world. Trees, bike racks, benches, railings... Anything. If I was on a computer, I would post some links, but I'm on my phone. You should look it up, though, because there are some amazing yarn bombs out there.

WOW! 13 pages already! There is some pretty awesome stuff being crafted.

Me? I'm working on altering my work pants. We have to wear a uniform that is given to us. Apparently the people they make these for are really, REALLY tall. And they have really long waists. Since I am a short legged, short waisted woman....I have to alter both the tops & the bottoms. And this is even made more fun because I have to do it all by hand. I will say my stitches are getting very small & uniform though.

I'm also working on setting my little duplex in order. Been here for almost 2 years & I still have stuff in boxes cause there just isn't room for all of it. So I'm starting my spring cleaning early & taking my time. If I try to do too much at once I will definitely turn myself off from doing any of it.

Still have to make: 2 scarves on the knifty knitter loom; 2 stuffies for a friend who just had a baby.

I am Woman: hear me roar about crochet...cross-stitch...crafts...family!

You guys make me feel like a slacker!  I have my white on the table, WIP, but still have not come up with anything for stripes.  And you all are posting competed stuff already...ouch!

I was house sitting this morning so took some yarn along and made a start on my hubbys sweater (again, the dog unravelled the first one  Shocked) I got 50 rows done, so glad he's not a big bloke or I'd only have managed half that  Wink

I have that problem too.  I crocheted for maybe a half hour last night and my hands were starting to hurt.  I think I may need to invest in some ergonomic hooks.
