Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Did you notice the new row of buttons up there?
Of course not.
I think may read this through bloglines or another newsreader, right?
First I figured the Really needed to be seen. Plus I needed easy access to it so I can remind myself in times of need that I do indeed have several sweaters waiting to be done and I dont need another...yet. Unless of course I start feeling dangerous symptoms then I'll just look at it to find a block to add the new project.
The sad thing is that I was talking about my stash and realized that I had more to add to the list. Without it all being in one spot it's hard to gauge how much I have. Norma
Then there is . Every so often there is a song that just puts a smile on my face. I feel the need to share it and this seems like an easy way to do that. This months song may be offensive if you found anything in Silence of the Lambs offensive.
Do you remember ? I didn't think so. I barely remembered it myself. I was reminded only when I was cleaning up the shoes by the garage door and found my cute little sneakers that have rarely been worn. I'm turning my running update into a "lose the baby weight" update. Not that I was industrious enough to change the name on the icon though.
I have 30 lbs of baby weight to lose. Weight sticks to me like glue. I have to work hard to shake it. Ok, it takes much more than shaking. I allowed myself to continue to be lazy and splurge during the holidays but now is the time to burn some calories.
Last of the new buttons is . I signed up way back when everyone was doing them but I forgot to list it. I just thought it might be neat to see where everyone is from. Add your name if you feel like it.
Back to the stash...
Thank you for all the stash busting comments. I'm glad to see I won't be alone in my stash busting escapades. For those that suggested a knit along, there is one already in progress. One without the nasty rules that would make a crazy person or a liar out of me.
The Stashbusters blog looks like a great place if you're looking for a knit along. Many of their stash busting is based on small items to get rid of all those lost balls of yarn in your stashbasket but I bet they'd be ok if you knit a sweater or an afghan from your stash. Heck, I wanna know if you accomplish knitting a sweater or an afghan from your stash.
Let the stash knitting begin!
After I get an UFO or 2 done.
