Today after planning out a pattern for Hubby's cell phone case I plan on sewing together some of the 6" squares and pinning out the pattern. Therefore using up more of the squares and more backing flannelette. I have a vision, just hope it works out.

I have used up a ball of yarn. Turns out that the pattern for the poncho was not suitable for this yarn type. I made this first ball into a cowl.

I have tweaked the pattern and will use the second and third balls to make the poncho.

There are a few of the leftover balls of yarn I used on the previous two temperature blankets that are getting smaller. Not sure if there is more, hopefully I can find small balls and thus be able to finish this blanket. I am working on April right now and really hope to be up to July by the end of this month.

I have a big, practically new skein of bright orange yarn languishing in a drawer - I just do not feel like knitting. I suppose it will stay there until inspiration strikes - in a month? In a year?

Yesterday I pulled out a lovely royal blue knit and cut out a dress. I believe there might be enough fabric left to piece out a tank top for summer wear.

Today I used up 2 1/2 packages of binding on the quilt. I am hoping that once it is done I can use up a few more things in my stash.

This week I used up some white felt from my stash to make inserts to keep my pots from scratching.

Still working on using other items up in the various stashes.
