WOYWW 315 - Stash organisation / Sophie's Universe

This week I have been very overwhelmed by my lack of organisation of my stash of yarn.  So I went through it all, bought a couple of storage boxes from The Works and tidied it up (I realise that this is a small stash compared to some but I do have limited space in my half of our loft where me and my partner both work on our crafts).

I have spent some time finishing projects like adding flowers to my little crochet cardigans and booties (which I failed to take a picture of).

I then finished mod podging a bird house that I had started...

I used purple paisley tissue paper that I obtained from The Card Factory a while back.  I pasted it on with mod podge and cut it whilst it was still drying.

It should look pretty in our garden.  I will finish it with a coat of translucent gloss spray acrylic paint which will hopefully make it last longer outside.

Think I have a bit of an obsession with birdhouses!

I then thought after tying up a few loose ends that it was a good time to try something different.  I then started Sophie's Universe as mentioned in my last post which I obtained some brightly coloured yarn for.

Here are a few pics below of my progress so far...

I'm on to round 17 which is in part 3 of the instructions (located Sophies Universe Cal Part 3).  I've enjoyed doing this and have learned so much so far - I would definately recommend having a go. It looks so pretty too!

Will show you in my next post how I get on with the next few steps!
