March Stash Busters Report

Well, March was a little crazy here but it is over and that is good.
As for the March Stash Busters report, I didn't get as much sewn as I would have liked. The intent was to sew something for the impending season, which is supposed to be Spring but.....

...we are up to our waist in snow and it is -15 degrees outside. So I was not feeling the Spring fever thing. So I sewed a pair of wool mitts (from my stash) for my Niece that I sent home with her before I got a picture of them and a scarf  from this scrap of super soft, rose bud fleece and satin that I had left over for two years.

I also helped my sone make a new Pokemon hat.  He designed it and cut it all out and sewed some of it, then I helped with the fussy parts. The character is Umbreon:

Since the snow won't go away, we thought that we would take advantage of it and snow dye some boring cream sheets that I have had in my stash for years.  We hope their new look will inspire us to make a fun quilt.

Then we used the left over dye to paint the snow and play tic tac toe! Snow boredom!

Hopefully next month will bring Spring and some inspiration!
Happy Sewing.

We did not get any snow and I love snow! I have never heard of snow dying before? You are welcome to come to TX for some spring like weather! I'm afraid it's going to be a scorcher this summer!

That scarf is so pretty, and looks nice and warm, too. And I love the tie dye; how fun!

I hope that spring hurries your way. (My parents live in Minnesota and often joke about spraying the snow in the yard green at this time of year, so I laughed when I saw your snow tic-tac-toe.)
