Yesterday, I held a little birthday party for myself. I wanted something to decorate, and what’s more festive than bunting?

I’ve been working hard to stash-bust lately, with several little projects selected to use up the ends of wool that I love too much to throw away. Two of the colors I used came from wool I had received free in a swap, another color came from a ball of wool I bought for 50p in the PDSA shop, and the final color was found in a bargain bin at John Lewis. Although I want to reduce the amount of yarn I own, I was quite pleased with myself for being able to put together a nice strand of bunting, with colors that I really like, for very little money. A stash really is a handy thing.
