Overflowing Craft Basket

Oh the joys of having a crafty basket.  Meant to keep my work (yes work, singular!) in progress in one organized place, the basket generally becomes a depository for any and all things begun.  As you can see, it's even spilled over (literally) into a craft box! I'm not even sure what's in here anymore...

Big craft basketYou can see that there are several different colors of yarn, and at least two unfinished projects hanging out on top.  I'm positive there are at least three more WIP underneath all that.


At least I know what's in the spillover box.  This is full of a granny square project that I started, but didn't plan well, so it ended when I couldn't actually put all the squares together. So I took out the squares and made hexagons! You can see the big ol' pile of hexagons there. That's about as far as I got on giving that blanket new life!


The good news is that in this clean up and clean out, I found this great little circles I had made a long time ago.  I added some buttons and some pins and voila! A cute little bobby pin was born! Look for this in my etsy shop soon!

Small Project Bag

Let's just hope that this new work in progress (yes the stash buster blanket is on hold for a bit. Let's be honest, did anyone think I would finish it in one go??) works up quickly! It's a small project bag to hold those little projects (like these great new bobby pins!) on the go.  I've already got a great lining fabric picked out, and am so ready to put this bag to use!
