I used up another ball of yarn, not sure if I recorded the two other skeins of the same colour that I used. So I used up 3 skeins of yarn from my stash. I am happy with that. I hope to use up some more yet in knitting a prayer shawl and in knitting a doggie coat at some point this month.

I managed to use up one of the balls of light green on the temperature blanket yesterday.

My pantry USE IT UP is like the widows cruse.............no matter what I make , its endless !!!! I suppose we can give ourselves a pat on the back for our provident living :shock:

I am making a dent in the lotions and potions though. All the minis are gone and I'm on the " who bought me this ?????" stuff . Watermelon scented body lotion anyone ?

I had to open another container of the lemon sugar scrub I made last night. Love that stuff.

We used up a bar of Dove soap and I have added a small bar from my stash of small bars (half used hotel bars and those that the children from school bought me as gift sets for Christmas and end of year gifts).

Working on a prayer shawl in the evenings and I have already used up a ball of fuzzy lace weight yarn. I am halfway through the second ball.

I have about a two year stash of "lotions and potions", I'm guessing, due to receiving some very nice ones as gifts over the past couple of years. Working through them one at a time - I don't like to open one until the previous one is completely gone.

Well I used up three balls of yarn on the prayer shawl I just finished yesterday and I am hoping to use up another three making the second one. I also cut out two patterns before I went to the hospital. I used up the leftover fabric from the knit dress I made earlier in the month and another piece of knit fabric was cut into as well (though there are remnants of that fabric to be used up). Working hard on getting the stashes used and making room for more eventually.
