It turned out that I won a crochet pattern from Astri at Apple Blossom Dreams, a blog I love to visit. The pattern is for the Nola Afghan and I propose to work this as another stained glass pattern using up the brighter colours in my stash.
There are some colours in there on cones that were used in one of my first blankets. I really like black as a frame to highlight the different colours. The stained glass version of the Puffy Nola Sunset Afghan really caught my eye the other day, hence my take on it with my stained glass scarf and I'm so pleased that I was visiting Astri's blog at just the right time.
I have won on Astri's blog before with her Rose en Vie pattern. I have started some of the squares but I've not got enough of all those colours so that blanket is on the back burner at the moment until the majority of the stash has been used.
I've also made loads of her granny rose squares. They are quite addictive.
My stash is gradually reducing - it's always exciting rifling through the drawers trying to find just the right colours or even just looking at the wool and thinking - "What shall I make with this?"
Here's another question.
Who has a stash and how do you reduce yours? (:))
Right, now to start my foundation chain.
