Wow, you've all been so busy. Thank you for the kind comments on my scarf Smiley The scarf ended up rather non-scarfy and more wristwarmerly than I planned. Which is quite usual for my projects... I need to sew a button on the first one and then knit another one before I post pictures.

I mentioned mending in my first post and I've actually started mending a Christmas tablecloth before storing it for next Christmas. I'm about halfway through. Can I post pictures of my mending projects here too or is it better if I start another thread somewhere else? Is there a thread allready for mending things?

Kittymom: I too added that hat on my todo-list.

Here is what I did today, all from stash.
Attempt at kanzashi flower


Paper circles for garland (wip) about 100. Did this all morning.


I found a tutorial where you use ribbon instead of rexlace and like how it looked so did a test piece.

My first week of destashing has finished and this what I have made. January I am making Christmas Tree Ornaments.

These are made by taping cardboard with masking tape, then covering them with fabric and braid.  Everything to make these comes from the stash.









These little presents are done the same way each present uses approximate 1.5 metres of ribbon.  I made 4 more (not pictured) but they have already been packed away.


My second week will be making ornaments from felt.

Dittos on request from beckashell!!  The ornaments and the presents are so nice!  And can be made personal to ones colors, etc.(for gifts, etc.)  Yours are very pretty...I like All the colors!!  Cheesy

vampedangelI like the flower you made...will it be embellishment for the garland or something??  I am not familliar w/them.  Smiley  And what is rexlace used for?  I think I better do an internet search instead of asking so many questions. Grin

Wow those ornaments are all so pretty! Too bad you have to wait another year before you can hang them on the tree.

kittymom, That flower was basically just practice. Until I get the petals down right, I'm not using them for anything. I did buy some hair things to put them on though for when they turn out right. Rexlace is also called Gimp. A lot of kids make lanyards with them at camps and such but I was looking for other things to do with it and found the tutorial using ribbon instead. The only luck I've had with looking for ideas is for making cyberlox (dreadlocks with the rexlace and other plastic stuff in them) and I'm not really interested in those.

Thank you for sharing, VampedAngel... Cheesy  I'm going to find more about the flower construction online(hopefully).
I have several nieces that might like to get some hair clips w/those and I could shuck a few buttons and fabric scraps from the stash...(slow going)=]

The ornaments and the present are really pretty!  We were tossing around the idea of re-doing our Christmas tree next year...  different ornaments and what not...  some of those would be really nice on our "new" tree.  Wink  A tutorial would be great if its possible!

What lovely destash items!

Love the ornaments!

That hat is perfect for a few things I need to knit this year...

also, loved the project notebooks--great organizing idea! 

I also like the idea of using eyelash on the edges of an afghan!  Such lovely colors!

I have tons of small kimono scraps that would be perfect for kanzashi...I made a few DIY kits about three years ago that I think I still have lying around...they always can be used to add to knit items, purses, hair accessories, etc.

I made lots of scarves out of stash...as soon as I charge up the camera batteries, I will load them up! Cheesy
