Scrapbusting

Finally, I have some stashbusting to share.  Honestly, these small projects take so little yarn that it actually should be called scrapbusting.

I have lots of stones I've collected on my walks, so every once in awhile I'll get the urge to crochet covers for them.
For St. Patrick's Day I crocheted shamrocks using this pattern and gave them to co-workers in a little envelope with a shamrock quote and chocolate mint candies.
These little wallhangings were inspired by a post on Instagram.  No link to who made them and no pattern, but easy enough to eyeball and figure out.
I also continue to make hearts and gift bags when time permits.
And finally, there will be no stashbusting with this ball of cotton yarn I bought a few weeks ago.  As you can see, I used it right up to the very end with just enough left to tie off and weave in.
Linking to Linda's Crafty Corner for the monthly Stashbuster Party.

Best wishes,

Dear Tammy,
your cute crochet work is adorable again! I also like the idea so much, to "clothe" stones! And the tiny shamrocks - a sweet idea for St. Patrick's Day. I was wearing green clothes this year on that day - you can see it in my current post ;o)
Lots of hugs from Austria, Traude

Thanks for posting, Tammy! I enjoyed seeing all your projects. I have yet to try making a cover for a rock, but I have been looking for just the right rock to decorate...I admire yours :-) xx

You can sure create such beautiful things with scraps! I was reading your post about the secret garden too. What a wonderful idea, and such a great service to the community too. I love that idea. Thank you so much for your sweet comments too. I feel blessed to know people all over the world.

One of those projects look like dream catchers which are abundant in this part of the country. I bet everyone loved those shamrocks. I think of all your lovely projects my all time favorite are your rock covers. I should learn how to do that. :) Kit

That is one big stashbusting. That cotton ball one would have had me on pins and needles thinking I was going to run out!
Hope you have a wonderful week!

Dearest Tammy,
What a lovely post bursting with labor of love as we say so well here in the USA! Love your St. Patrick's shamrocks with the sweet handwritten message. Such a touching little gift that might often mean far more than its tiny presence presumes.
You have a real gift and look at you what you are able to create by just looking at a photo! Hats off to you girl.
Hugs,
Mariette

Well, crocheting hurts my hand so much, but I must say, I will work through that pain, because you've inspired me on what to do with some of the rocks I bring back from far away places, myself...I'm CONSTANTLY picking up rocks, to carry home. You, my friend, have shown me something beautiful to showcase them in! Thank you - XOXO
