Use It Up Stitching

current work tote bag project
using cream homespun as the light
will only be as big as the homespun on hand

inspired by this top 
found on Pinterest
love the cheerful look of these colors
my stash is sooo boring to me

next up in the dye pots
the three pieces of wool across the top are small pieces
the windowpane gray is a yard
it's a Moda wool, I don't care for their wool at all
hoping the dyeing will help me use it
purchased a bundle so plenty more to dye

edited to add:
this batch turned out nice
recipe a bit of this and that
the Moda wool smells awful when dyeing

the sun is shining in
Olivia is baking between the glass and drapes

I like the cream better than the white anyway. Funny that I see lots of fabric designs that either still are or was on my cotton fabric shelves.

I also have some that grey, perhaps not as much as you tho. Looking for the big reveal.

I love the fabrics you are using, it will be a nice pattern for those.
I need to make one with my woolies that you gave me and i have more yardage, to go with it, so trying to decide what pattern I want to use. Since it will be for our big bed, want to keep it simple.

Love the reds in your quilt.
I so admire your resolve not to buy anything. I should take a lesson from you.

Yay....almost a quarter through the year and staying strong! And I would NOT call your stash boring....Yikes! I love the colors of the quilt.... I’m still trying to get to the space that will be my “”playroom,” so I am not even sure what I have for anything in my meager stashes anymore.... You think with this horrendous winter we’ve had I would have spent lots of time on it.... Ummm.NOT! Hope your weekend is off to a better start than mine ~ Robin

What a beautiful color choice, I think it’s going to look awesome quilted........I as well am trying the use it up or do without motif......lord knows I have plenty to work with, may not be the exact color pallet I’m looking for, but I’m going to make it work....
Can not wait to see the dyed pieces too...I bet they will be fun, even for just using in backgrounds.......

Happy creating
