As I mentioned last week, I love quilting and sewing and beading and generally crafting so much that I have acquired a lot of
stuff supplies over the years. To top it off, I'm better at starting projects than finishing them. So I have lots. Make that lots of stuff. In the interest of simplifying my life, I'm trying to use things up and share them with others who can use them now instead of trying to use them myself SOMEDAY.
So during the Olympics, I am using up my yarn with lots of crochet. Now most of these have to be small (like the cute doilies above, pattern from Crochet Today) because my yarn stash consists mostly of single skeins. In the end, it's mostly eye candy to me. So far I have 6 of these little cuties. (Above, though, I'm going for the Olympic look.)
To giveaway today, I have Betz White's book Sewing Green. Last year I won one in a giveaway at The Long Thread, and then someone gave me another copy. So, I'm passing my extra copy along to one of you, lovely readers. This is filled with some great projects that make great use of our resources, as well as great gifts. Really, it's a great book. For Christmas, I made several produce bags for my anti-plastic bag friends. They were easy and fun.
To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment by Tuesday, noon (central time). Share with us your favorite recycle/upcycle idea--something SIMPLE that makes better use of our resources. Or tell us something green you would LIKE to do. Wednesday 8 am central I'll announce the winner.
And check back next week--I'll have something else to share with you in another giveaway. For now, the Olympics beckon!
