Awesome work on the cleaning, and yay for getting some actual crafting done.

I was also on a granny square kick this week.  Finished another lapghan, about 32 inches square.

Thank goodness you guys have bigger stashes than I do! Sharalee, my ultimate goal is to move into a Tiny House ( http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/ ), every time I get more space, I just fill it up!

Another tiny house fan!  I am thoroughly in love with that concept.  Not sure I'll ever make it that small, but every time I go on a "get rid of things" kick it's with that in the back of my mind.

Finally, I have a project to show off!  (I did finish a scarf last week, but it still needs to be blocked, so it isn't really finished, now is it?)  My friend sent me this yarn from Australia 4 (?) years ago, and  I finally found a good pattern for it.

I've also been working on getting my odds and ends of scrapbook paper in order.  I cut all my bizarre sizes down to 4x6 or 4x3 because those are what I use most frequently once I've done whatever I'm going to do with the bulk of the sheet.  It has made storage so much easier.

Popping by with the last pictures of 2012 projects.  Doll clothes don't use up much stash, but they are a lot of fun.

Okay, popping by with two quick housekeeping items.

1) The 2013 DeStash-Along thread has gone live!
2) You can continue to post 2012 projects here for the next few days, just in case it takes you a little while to get pictures.  I'll officially close us up on the 7th.  Does that seem reasonable?

Oh, and just because I'm finishing up small projects in drips and drabs - a teeny tiny sweater.  But it's still one less ball of yarn in stash.

136  2013 Annual DeStash-Along (CLOSED) in Craftalongs by gaudiknight on: December 31, 2012 08:29:11 AM

Whether we measure the volume by the bin, basket, cupboard, closet, or room, stashes are an integral part of every crafter's life.  They provide inspiration for our next project and let us to give in to late night crafting urges without running to the store.  Or they just allow us to sleep in our beds at night secure in the knowledge that when the Zombie Apocalypse comes we will have enough yarn, sequins, and glitter glue to see us through.

It isn't a question of "do you have a stash?" but "do you want to make the most of your stash?"

If so, welcome to the 5th Annual DeStash-Along -- a year long celebration and shopping spree through our vast hordes of supplies on hand.  We traditionally have monthly themes and challenges, share pictures and ideas, and generally have a good time together.  

We do hope you'll join us.

After Christmas crafting update!

I managed to make a few things in between seasonal retail work (oh joy)

A Yarn Tote that used up about a yard of stash.  It's big enough to hold three skeins of yarn and a mostly finished giant granny square:

A CD holder (pretty boring and self explanatory) that used up a little over half a yard.

And a bunch of little notebooks.  Lots and Lots, and there are still more to be made for after Christmas presents.

Still working on plans for next year's DeStash-Along, so if you have any ideas, speak up!

So it seems like folks would be open to having the first couple months with challenges that escalate to a more organized stash.  Always open to more suggestions if anyone's got them.  Were there ones we've already done that people particularly liked, or ones I should avoid?

And because I have actually gotten some destashing done, pictures!

December Themes

Photo © 2011 J. Ronald Lee, CC Attribution 3.0

Color: Metallic
Pattern: Folk-art.
For: The House. And it doesn't have to be holiday themed unless you want it to be.
Challenge: We're in the last month. It's a sprint to the finish. Look back at the goals you made in January and see how you did. Or just tally up all the projects you've made from stash and give yourself a big pat on the back.


And on a purely administrative note:  Next year will be the 5th year of the DeStash-Along here on Craftster!  I'd welcome any suggestions on how to make it better than ever, or mark the occasion in some way.

What awesome crochet, that1girl!  I'm afraid I don't have the patience for doilies and snowflakes, so I'm always amazed when people make them.

Just two quick things for November DeStashing:

A bag made from a fat quarter I've had since high-school.  It will be nice to finally get some use out of it.

And a little sweater for a little doll.
