STASH SHOPPING--STASH BUSTING

DD came over with the three girls. I pulled out some of my stash. That which was the easiest to get my hands on. She went home with an armload of some nice fabric to add to her stash. She left with the instructions...save all of your scraps. Do NOT throw scraps away!!!

She's made a couple necklaces...sew a tube of fabric, Thread on a bead, then insert a marble or something similar that is round, thread on a bead, insert a marble, bead and so on. Sew up the open end. They are really cute. Reminds me of some I made a long while back.

Her shopping for her stash resulted in stashbusting for me....both a good thing!!!

I guess that you will need to replenish your supply!

I need to that too Elaine, but everytime I start to go through my stash, all the sudden I need to have all of them "just in case". I guess I'll have to do that with my eyes closed if I'm going to make a dent!
