Stash Busting Pledge for 2013

In a previous post I wrote about my 2013 goals. The most important goal  is to sew from my stash. 
I took the stash busting pleadge  I Alethia commit to the following:  1. Using more of my stash fabric in 2013. 2. If I buy fabrics for every yard of fabric I purchase 2 yards from my stash will be donated.

My Crochet Skirt and Crochet Infinity Scarf

I love this skirt. The sweater was a Xmas present from the DH with a cream color infinity scarf. Believe me this ensemble was not planned. I bought 5 balls of super saver yarn in this color last winter when I crochet the Angelina Jolie's Bag. This is leftover yarn. The boots are a beautiful purple, awesome that has been in my closet since last winter. Love them.

In the pic below I am wearing a cardigan with the infinity scarf that I started last night and complete just before I took these photos. I will post the video link from you tube. I love my coppery/gold boots.
Here is the video. Enjoy
Below is a photo of the crochet skirt. As you can see the stiches are quiet open, so the skirt will need a lining. More pic soon.

I uploaded the photo using Google chrome, I don't understand why the icon to upload a photo from my computer is not available when I use internet explorer?

Crochet Skirt- my first project for 2013

I was watching Hectanooga 1 on the You Tube channel during the holidays and she became one of my favorite to watch. She demonstrated how to crochet a skirt using you hip measurement. It was easy peasy. I started Thursday night and I completed the skirt today.  I did most of the crochet on Thursday and Friday and maybe 2 hours on Saturday and Sunday and one hour today. I am very please with the result. I am going to add a lining and it should be ready before the weekend.  I am having some difficulty uploading a photo of my finished skirt, blogger is not giving me a choice to upload the photo from my computer. Is this something new for blogger?
