I got lots of great ideas on how to down size my craft stash including having a swap or give away. Is anyone interested? I've never organized one of these things before and since my reader base is on the small (very small) side I'm not sure if it would work. E-mail me with thoughts (link to the right) and maybe between all of us we could get something organized. I know I have things that someone else would put to good use.
Speaking of stashing, I picked all this up at the thrift on Saturday:
That's 2 bags of poly-fil, a bag of novelty yarn (that's yours Dita!), a bag of lace trims for a project Mom is working on, a bag of green braided trim and two pieces of flannel I *hope* to turn into a wee wonderfuls bear. I would like to modify the pattern to make it a boy bear for Luis' God son, Christopher. I think the total cost was around $7 or $8. Later this week I'll post pictures of my craft room (oh yes, I have a whole room) so you can see my mess. :) This is why I must purge!
I also thrifted these two linen tea towels:
Both are Fingal 100% linen made in Ireland. I paid 49 cents each for them. I can't not buy graphic tea towels! (Anyone else have this condition?)
Tomorrow I'll post about my crafty endeavors of the past weekend but in the meantime please check out Heidi's ribbon topiary. I love it!
