I went to Joann's this weekend. It was awesome. But I only got 1 thing of yarn for my stash. And that motivated me to sit down with my knitting DVDs and practice.

grad school and life are eating up my crafting time, but I finally finished something for February: a pair of mitts

Cute kid hats! And that black one is gorgeous! Have to see if the library will order in that book for me...

Ok, I am stash busting still. I've got several baby gift parcels on the go and two swaps but I gotta say, when you're crafting tiny little items like shadow boxes, necklaces, sock creatures, miniatures and taggy blankets it's not much of a stash bust volume-wise, is it? I mean, after days and days of busting my butt it's still as crowded as ever in here. Sheesh. I've gotta start doing some BIG crafts.

ha ha ha --yeah--somehow the piles do not seem to be going down...I guess I was expecting to free up an entire room or closet...

I keep adding to my paper stash...I mean, inchies take, what, one piece of paper?  gaaaaaaahhh

I've been stash busting for 2 years (buying only what I need to finish projects). This will be the 3rd year.  Despite all the things I have made there is no perceptible difference in my fabric stash.  I suppose it doesn't help that most of the things I make are generally small.

Even though I made a whole heap of cards and things, they have hardly used anything of my paper stash. The only perceptible change in my paper/stamping/scrapbooking stash is because I have been selling things in my mini yard sale.     Speaking of which I need to start going through my paper/stamping/scrapbooking  and pull out some more things that I am willing to part with for some cash.

*sigh* 3 years of destashing? Maybe I will do the big indoor yard sale coming up in our township...I am not at all motivated to make things out of some of my fabric stash--I really don't remember why I have some of the fabrics I do...

Good luck qazicat!  You seem to be doing well with your sale!

Holy cow...three years is a loooong time. But I always think that it is better to hold onto really cool fabrics for a few years while they wait for the perfect project then settle on something you are less then excited about. There are a few scraps I had been holding onto and just used last week. Boy, am I glad I waited.

yes--I have fabrics now that I am glad I saved...but I also have fabrics that I purchased when I worked in the corporate world (wools and silks) that will never become clothing as I no longer wear that type of stuff...but maybe I can rethink what they can be made into...I should post some in the clothing thread to get ideas of what to do with it!! yes!

Do it! Ill bet wools and silks could make some really pretty housewares. Wall hangings, produce baskets, holiday ornaments.oh, you could have some fun. 

I posted earlier and forgot I have finished stuff to post.

A looooong time ago, I got some really cute pre-cut squares of baby-themed flannel. I assembled them into 2 blanket tops and stashed them away. Well, now I know one person having a girl, and another having a boy. What luck, right? Well, I dug into my stash and pulled out the blanket tops and leftover polar fleece from the Christmas Stocking swap. Just so the backs wouldnt be too boring, I added quick fleece appliques to the back. And here they are, ready to go!

Back:


I also (finally) made something for myself. I have been sitting on some very small scraps of fabric and made myself a wrist pincushion. My favorite part is the ribbon. I got it ages ago and wanted to make something with it where you can still read it. And props to my hubby for selecting the button on top.

What a good idea to make the backs more interesting! Dresses up any plain fabric... (taking notes...)...

and your pincushion is very meaningful to you--nice work (what a gorgeous button--looks like a big fat pink pearl--how luxurious!)
