January's Stashbustin' !

In case the post title has muddled you, here in the West of Ireland it is still January! See, told you we live at a different pace!

And, as titles go, its not as odd as some you meet:
...and while we're on the subject, do stop and admire Liv's quilts, aren't they gor-gee-ous?
And Tricia has another great idea for a new Mail Art Swap using old images...

Anyhow, to business!
Here are some of my Stashbustin' projects from January:

...some puffy hearts and a potholder...
...a baby quilt which I sold...(yippee!!)
...and a notebook wallet, an experiment in Cloth Collage which actually worked!
There were other projects as well, mats, coasters, a tea cosy (of which I forgot to take photos before giving as a present), another Cloth Collage...
So, after some frantic hammering at my dodgy old calculator I conclude that from my Stash I used:
4 and a quarter yards of fabric
half a yard of recycled batting (felted wool jersey and blanket)
I pyjama leg
and 1 shirt sleeve.
On the flip side of that:
I bought a total of 19 fat quarters...oops!
Better luck next month, hey?
Next question: do I tell Ulla??????

I love all your things you make!

You have been busy they are all gorgeous!
Here in Cork you are right all stunned by the tragedy the poor families your heart goes out to them.
Have a lovely weekend
God Bless

I really like your cloth collage. I have no idea what I've used up in the way of scraps and stash, a fair bit I think thanks to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. But I bought 6 metres of Kaffe Fassett fabric the other day - it was cheaper than I'd seen it anywhere else, so what else could I do?

Ulla said...

You have been a good girl and used lots of fabric! The fat quarters don't take too much space when they are folded, and they may help you use up some of your older fabrics when the time is right. The baby quilt is very pretty, and the notebook wallet looks like a Valentine's Day's gift.

Oooo.. I LOVE the pot holder - how gorgeous!

Lynn said...

Great ideas and lovely colours. Hoping to finish some UFO,s this year and perhaps get stuck into the stash along the way.

Kathy said...

You've been plenty busy! It's fun to get so much accomplished. Now you really have worked to earn your 19 fat quarters!

Micki said...

i love all of your projects!
The notebook is especially beautiful!

I do have to admire people who get their valentiine projects finished BEFORE Valenine's day! Haven't you heard? - Buying fat quarters doesn't really count as buying fabric. They're actually therapy and entertainment. LOL!
