Use My Stash Year : week 3


I saw an adorable table runner at Modify Tradition - guest blogger Andrea of Knitty Bitties shared a tutorial on Wednesday. My kitchen table was looking pretty empty, so I decided to use up some stash!


I LOVE this rabbit eating the snowman's nose. And here's the back....


Michele said we could keep the scraps from her Bee square fabric, so I put the cute bird into a pinwheel.


This little project was the only newly used fabric this week, but I didn't buy any!

Busted: 1.486 (told you I had weird decimals)
Purchased: (0)
Net YTD: (20.071)

Also this week I got my first award!

A lemonade stand award - isn't it cute. It is to be awarded to bloggers that show great attitude and gratitude. Thank you so much Leslie! I have to pass the award around, so I'll post about other bloggers later.

I bow to you!!!! I often say I will I will not buy more until I use up at least half of my stash ... but my will power is not strong :-(

Andrea said...

Oh my!! I LOVE your version. I think I should have had a challenge and said that the cutest runner from my tutorial had to come live at my house!! Seriously ... I'm all about aqua right now and I have the most delicious pumpkin orange accent wall in my living room, so really this has to come to my house. :P

Thanks so much for sharing ... I might borrow a picture or two and add to a blog post of mine if you don't mind.

Also, how did the tutorial go? I didn't do a test run after I wrote it, so please let me know of any errors you ran into.

Thanks again and Happy Day! You made mine a little brighter!
