Can you imagine me smiling and feeling immensely clever? I am!
This was a present for my dear friend D.E. who loves all forms of sewing - especially quilting. Most of the spools came from the pile of notions my MIL sent me last November/December.
I think that now is the time to share my big audacious goal for next year. I want to craft down my rather overwhelming stash. I want to limit my purchases to consumables (such as adhesives and thread) or stuff that I can't hack when I am trying to finish a project.
In addition to that goal, I have two secondary goals - I want to craft more snowmen for my MIL (I've toyed with numbers but not sure I will share my goal) and I would like to craft 100 trees to put up by the mirrors in my kitchen. I will need to photograph the mirrors for you again. I love the new arrangement it is my favorite yet and the nutcrackers look great up there right now (I actually took all the mirrors down and cleaned them and vacuumed above the cabinets before I allowed myself to get the nutcrackers out for Christmas).
I will try to keep myself accountable by sharing what was purchased and what was from the stash. In this case, I did buy a 98 cent heart shape at Walmart - but the rest was from the stash. I can't wait to show you the stash buster I made yesterday. It didn't take a lot of stash but I love the results!!
