100 Stash Projects -5

The best finish yet!  A late Christmas gift for my husband.  I may have had a holiday meltdown when I realized it wouldn't be done in time. Took way longer than I expected.  Glad to be done and happy with the results.  I feel like a seaming genius now.

100 Stash Projects - 1

Project 1 is complete. Mittens from leftover Mission Falls. The sweater I made out of this yarn pilled like crazy. Hoping the tighter gauge helps these last longer.

It's been a while

Almost two years since I've posted anything on the blog.  Since then a zillion things have happened I'm sure. I'm starting fresh.

I want to use stash and I wanted somewhere to log the projects I do as I do them.  I want to make 100 projects from stash (or mostly stash depending on what it is). The final goal is to use things up and feel free with less clutter and supplies being neglected.  Also a pull to actually finish or start those projects that I've wanted to do forever and already have the supplies to do!!

We'll see how it goes. 

I'll be back with my first finish of this project soon.

A Lovely Year or Finishes - January

I stumbled across a Flickr group today called A Lovely Year of Finishes. Basically you post your challenge at the beginning of the month and your finish at the end. The goal is 12 finishes. I've been wanting to finish things, so this find is perfect. Also there are prizes which makes things even more fun.

My January challenge is to finish this NYC quilt top. I may even aim to finish the whole thing. We'll see how ambitious I am. This is a quilt commemorating our wedding in NYC. Our 5th anniversary is January 26th, so wouldn't that be an awesome finish this month. Here's how it looked in November. Not much has been done. I think I'll I've done is sew that bit in the photo together.
