Stash Busting Sunday: One Ball of Yarn

There's been no sleeping in on Spring Break.
I so enjoy quiet mornings that are slow and easy.
My husband commented that I am waking up more cheery than usual.
That's because I know I don't have to go to school.
A full week of doing as I please each and every day is such a wonderful thing.
I love how one simple ball of yarn can be used to create so many different projects.
Tiny grannies for embellishing inexpensive towels.
These will make a nice gift set.
The little glass jar still needs to be dressed with a crocheted jacket.
And the little teddy bears will be used to embellish gift bags for babies.
They still need their faces stitched on.
Pattern for gift bag can be found at Chalky's World.
And the teddy bear pattern is from Leah at Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me.
For more April stash busting ideas head over to Linda's Crafty Corner.
Wishing you a creative day!

Hello Tammy. A neat gift idea. The doily is very pretty and the crochet lacy on the towel makes it special and the bag is awesome. Hugs Judy

You are such an inspiration! Embellishing a guest towel like that for a hostess gift is brilliant!! I think I'll stow that idea in my list of things to do. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Hi Tammy, how are you hon? I have been absent from blogland for far, far too long and have only just had a chance to do some visiting today. So to see your lovely post and spot the wee bears has absolutely made my day! Your crochet all looks fantastic - I love the shell doily so much. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Hi Tammy
Who would have thought so many lovely things could come from one ball of natural colour wool.
I really like the towels, so pretty and the teddy heads, I think I might try a teddy head in thinner yarn to put on my blocks sometime.
Thanks for the links.
Stay happy

Out of curiosity, what is the food that you are eating? I recognize the olives, and maybe that's scones? How about the white creamy stuff?
