Back from holiday, and I'm seriously impressed with what everyone has made from stash!! look at you all go!! I need to take lessons.  I've been finding it really hard to craft with my 5&3 year old around.  As soon as I pick up a project it's "Mom! I'm hungry" "Mom! read to me!" "Mom, Mom, Mom!" LOL

Inspiration without application is moot.

I've not had much to share lately, but I have been watching all of the cool goodies being posted. Smiley

After following a link to Anthropology today, I thought I was back here on Craftster. (safe for work link) http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/clothes-loungewear/27437284.jsp

Holy cow, they have these sets in two colors and look like some of the great undies I've seen here!  They really do follow the blogs, don't they? Cheesy

Made a matching Brother/Sister set for my cousin. Her baby is due shortly and they are HUGE LSU fans - I just live how these turned out!

CLM-- I know exactly why you need that heat-resistant pad for canning!  Brilliant!  How big did you make them--how many bottles will fit on there?

Texscrapper-- cute kiddy outfits.

I have a question for you guys.  Long ago my daughter was given a blanket that was made out of flannel yo-yos.  They were just whip-stitched to each other side-by-side where the circles touched.  And that just wasn't sturdy at all, and not washing-machine friendly.  Just plain bad idea for a child's blanket.  So the stitching had come apart in several places and I set it aside (for years) until I could decide what to do for it.  I got it out today, thinking that I would attach it to a backing by zigzagging around the circles.  But really I'd have to do each 2" circle, and I discovered that even doing one was difficult because I have to turn the whole blanket in a circle through the machine.  And hand-stitching doesn't thrill me.  Any ideas?

The thing about believing that you can do anything is that you actually do things!

My BIL is a LSU grad, so he would appreciate kiddos in those colors!  I love the outfits!

CLM--that jean pocket hanger is fantastic!!!  I have never had luck felting cashmere or mohair...I wonder if they pre-wash so that the garment won't shrink a lot?  I do love those fabric/sewn dryer balls...great tutorial!

omg--those scrappy underwear better guarantee a good time for those prices!!! Grin 

I really want to go to Disney World again

Hey all! Wow, CLM you really are a crafty little monkey!! I bow to your craftiness and perseverence lol!
Also, I'm loving all of the undies and anthropologie has nothing on you! Love all of the hats adn that cute litle pair of outfits Cheesy.

I actually have some destashing progress to report. The first is a yarn destash. My 6 y/o is in kindergarten right now and she told me she wanted some fingerless gloves for when she would be at recess so her hands wouldn't be so cold. I let her rummage through my yarn and she picked out this fantastic aqua multitoned stuff that I've been just holding on to and drafted a pattern for them and hooked them up. She calls them her mermaid mits. Not that she'll use them in our high of 93 today. *sigh* At least they are set for the fall/winter!

The other item is an upcycle. Years ago I bought this dress. I loved the patchy look to it but not the triangle top. Well, a strap finally broke and the whole thing spent three years waiting for me to fix it and I finally did! I cut the top and straps off, sewed down the raw edge and turned it into a fab skirt. Cheesy hooray!

And I have two things that just need to get a final wash and iron and one skirt that just needs a waist band and zipper. I'm hoping to get that done tonight with more progress to show tomorrow.

I've got tons of new stuff in my store!: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MyWyldChild?ref=ss_profile

love the patchy skirt...isn't it great to get a project done that has been hanging around?

Dulcet- if you re-attach all the circles then lay it on a backing you can do a straight stitch through rows of circles. The yo-yos will be recognizable, re-enforced on the backing will keep them together, and it will have a little texture.

I whipped up a few "stow & go" reuseable bags for part of my boys Teacher Appreciation gifts this week.
