I'm not telling what I have added to my stash since joining this destashalong I prefer to live under the delusion that I am actively destashing.  I have a friend who works in a drapery workroom and they have to throw away the scraps I go there and look through them and get all kinds of lovely fabrics in silks and linens.  I even make clothes out of some of them.  Last year I made my Easter outfit with fabric I salvaged from the workroom.  I made a cotton embroidered organza jacket and when I went to my friends house she had made a curtain for her front door out of the same fabric.  LOL  I got so many compliments on my jacket.  It is really hard to resist that fabric and I figure I am being green by saving it from the landfill and reusing it.  And Hey I am helping with their destashing right?

You guys are cracking me up!!

I was too embarrassed to post that I had destashed a little bit of white yarn when I crocheted two kitchen towels.  Because, I just got back from the store with 4 packages of sheets that were clearanced out.  The plan is to destash my quilting fabric and they will make nice backing fabric.  I just couldn't help myself, they were $60 sheet sets for 10 bucks.  A good yard of fabric is $10!  And to top it off, my husband didn't even give me "the look" while I was filling the cart!

Just for the record, I agree that sometimes you have to get other supplies in order to destash.

I'm not telling what I have added to my stash since joining this destashalong I prefer to live under the delusion that I am actively destashing. 

I was thinking the same thing. I am always on the look out for remnants or $1.50 a yard from wal-mart. I figure with everyone complaining that wal-mart is getting rid of their fabric section I should get it while it is there. I am definitely more conservative now though. I only buy 2 yards of any given fabric rather then 4 yards. Because I mostly make clothes I can't get away with just 1 yard.

I did make a really cool market bag this morning before work with stashed fabric. I feel there is progress towards my goal.

Most of the stuff I've destashed so far has been for a swap. I can't show it yet! But I will soon.

 i did some minor de-stashing for my last swap and the 2 I am in now have been totally de-stashed (one was a de-stashing swap, lol, and the other was just something I always have a lot of). I am de-stashing some things for my artfire shop this weekend. I gotta prep for my first craft show this summer also

okay I suppose I should confess I just bought six yards of fabric...

BUT one was beautiful and for a swap partner plus a little extra cause it was just pretty, and the other was TWEED for $2 a yard and perfect for a cloak I hope to wear at the Ren Faire this year.
