This last week to keep me from eating all of the time I have been sewing. I made myself 3 tops & a chenille scarf. DGSs each a button down shirt, pajama pants Ds(16) pajama pants. Many rice packs sewn with scraps of knit & flannel that I will fill as needed for gifts or requests. & 7 bowling diapers with request for a few more I hope to do today while the guys watch football.
To bad I have to go back to work on monday. This has really got me back into sewing. I have been in a slump for a while & just couldn't make myself do it. My new years reselution is to use at least 1 piece of stash fabric a week until I run out of fabric or ideas. Also all gifts this year to Great nieces & nephews WILL be homeade. DH is getting upset at the money spent on giftssince we are now up to 17 on my side & 5 on his side. We don't exchange with adults any more just cards but wiyh the cost of those I may be making gifts to save that money too.
Happiness is having time to sew!!

Mom of Six,
Good luck with your stash. I could easily make 2 years worth of wardrobe with what I have. Online shopping has become like eating to me, I can't stop! I'm going to have to have a serious New Years talk with myself, heavens knows that DH has tried! (Hmmm, and that new router he just bought, let's see would give me a credit on "my side" for...)
