111  Re: 2013 Annual DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by gaudiknight on: March 17, 2013 07:13:43 PM
I've been kind of MIA on the de-stashing front for the past 6 weeks, mostly because all my crafting time has been consumed by this:


71/361 Finally Finished by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

The blanket is somewhere between 32 and 36 inches square, all in DK, so it took forever.  It's made of yarn I've had for the past 6 years.  The parents it is going to asked for gender neutral gifts, but I feel like denim will do, and even if the baby is a girl, it will have more than enough pink in its life.  And that's 6 skeins of yarn out of the stash!  I can see the bottom of the bin.

Awesome projects!  I'm really loving all the plaid, and the giant doily/small table cloth is amazing.

For those joining me on a suppy diet - you get to make the rules.  I'm going to be going cold turkey, but whatever makes the most sense for you, whether it's not buying materials to sit around, or no more impulse yarn buys - whatever!  You know your stash, project plans, and willpower better than anyone.

Nothing to show so far for the March themes, but I got my crafting space cleared off from the February themes.  It's not large, but it works.  Sewing machine is stashed under the desk, paper crafting supplies are in the red tote on the shelves.  I still need to work on organization for thread, ribbons, etc. but I have space to breathe again.

March Themes

Color:  green
Pattern:  flowers
For:  yourself
Challenge 1:  What can I do with this?  What is this?  Why was I saving this?  These are all questions you may have asked yourself over the past two months.  If you've come across stash that you can't quite figure the best use for, post a picture here and ask.  Who knows what another pair of eyes (or two) can come up with!?
Challenge 2: Any brave souls want to join me for a month long craft supply diet?  It's totally optional, and you get to choose how strict you want to be... (*runs for cover*)

JessKelly  I have the same problem when I invite people over to make stuff with my stash.  They'll only ever use "scraps" to the point that sometimes I'll just cut some random chunks out of old scrapbook paper before they get there so they don't feel bad using it.  I'll have to try the goody bag idea.  Love your set-up, too!  

Finished some little notebooks last night.  They'd been sitting around nearly done for over a month.

Lovesclutter Give-away price or not, its a great feeling to make space and get a little money while doing it.  And it probably made someone else really, really happy.

I've got two little quick destash project from last night (Thursday seems to be my late-night sewing night, no idea why).  I actually finished the entire scrap of fabric with them, which makes me feel really proud, even if it was a small piece to begin with.  Nothing had to be put away at the end!

I like the cross-stitch a lot.  Hope it turns up soon!  Maybe a dragon carried it off.

I've got two doll dresses to show off.  I'm counting them as two projects even if they are very small, and were made out of the same scraps.

What do you do when you can't sleep at 1AM on a Thursday evening?  Go through your FQ stash and make a tiny tote, apparently.

This size is an old stand by of mine for "I have no idea what to do with this" fabric.  They're perfect for one skein projects, lunch, impromptu purses, or gift bags.  I'll probably be making quite a few more to work through the not-quite-my-style fabric to give to my mother, because she rather likes them too.

My gosh those mailboxes are cute!  I love the red and blue one especially.

I just finished a doll-hat - managed to get the ends woven in and closure put on the same day.  I think that's a first for me.

Love seeing/hearing about the progress folks are making with their crafting areas.  My goal for this month is to convert my old desk nook in my bedroom into a paper-crafting area.  I've tried it for sewing and it just doesn't work, but maybe paper will be better.

I've also gone on a supply buying haitus until the end of March.  I didn't buy all that much before, but I'm putting a complete quash on it now - not even for thread or interfacing or other project specific things that I don't usually consider stash.  Wish me luck!

Also! - I found the 31 Days to Get Organized on the Webs Yarn Store Blog while wandering the internet recently and thought I'd link here in case anyone else was staring at their knitting & crochet supplies in befuddlement like I am.  I'm slowly working my way through the posts and they look pretty good.

Oh! And an actual project - Doll Hat out of sock yarn.
