Aprils Challenge

I have a problem, (some would say more than one), but the current problem is that I have too much fabric and not enough shelf space. Hmmmm.
So to in an effort to get out of this non creative funk, tidy the sewing room and make a dent in the fabric stash, I have come up with a challenge for myself.
 I have decided that this month I have to make 20 new things.
The self imposed rules....
Out of the 20 items
Everything has to be made from fabric I already own.
The only things I am allowed to buy are thread, cord, snaps etc. 
There must be at least 3 large items (to use up lots of fabric)
At least 3 items are for gifts
At least 3 use new to me patterns (from books I own)
1 item must be a treat for myself
3 items must be for the home
Some of the items are to go into the shop
and something to donate

Initially I thought of making something new everyday but then when I looked at my schedule I realised that was doomed to fail from the start, 20 items are achievable, I think!
I made a start yesterday, I will post about that when I have taken the pictures.
