I really need to destash this year.....I could probably never leave the house and not run out of supplies. Yes I have been hoarding a very long time. First up some things that I have made from my stash so far this year!
Joined the scrappy trip around the world quilt block swap and sent to 3 partners 4 blocks each here are the results.
I decided these were so fun and I would need some to add to the blocks that my partners send to me......so back to my fabric and 8 blocks for me!
A crafty friend asked me to do a personal swap she needed a pillow with her sons name on it for a birthday gift.....lucky me star wars was a possible theme and I just happened to be hoarding some star wars fabric. I did have to buy the 24 inch pillow insert as I have no good place to store those, but yea me got rid of some fabric........lol you will see later in my post what I mean.
As I was digging through some of my fabric I found this cute....yep that is why I bought it a few years back......construction truck panel. The other supervisor at work has a grandson who is 4 and loves these.....so much that his mom, dad, grandma, grandpa and uncle have each been officially named one of these construction vehicles by him. I dug a little more and came up with some more fabric that went really good with the panel and made him a quilt.
I even managed to use the big left over chunk of one piece on the back.
I was feeling pretty good since we are only 19 days into the new year until I decided to share 3 items from my stash........a little embarrassed...but this is a support group right?
Here is my thread stash
In the top picture the two top right containers flip over and this is the other side.
Here's my embroidery floss collection......carded and in numerical order....all is DMC except the one box to the left is an assortment of all types of threads.
and a major obsession.....buttons....
Right up there with fabric!
Here is a close up
These 2 are all carded buttons
Loose buttons by color
Then not in the pictures are a lot of themed buttons like fish, cupcakes, cars, halloween, Christmas etc.
Yes I am a collector, and hoarder of craft supplies....I have a weakness for fabric, buttons and thread among a few other things. They are my drugs to reduce stress, stay active and brighten someone's day........ My craft room is a happy place!
