If you are going to use paper patterns, you will need to make yourself some fabric weights!

YAY planning for destashing 2012!  I have been following/trying to participate in these threads for 2 years now and so far I have totally failed - buying more than I use.  Im liking the sound of 2012 though.  I no longer work in a haberdashery department, Ive been quite productive these last few weeks, Im moving again (a good incentive to lose the stash) so I could be in with a chance.  Looking forward to doing it all over again with you all.  Smiley

Awesome goals!  I'm still formulating exactly what mine will be.

The 2012 DeStash Along is up and running.  Go check it out and say hello if you get the chance. We can still post our 2011 projects here for a little while, if like me you haven't gotten around to photographing the last few projects.  But we should post our new stuff in the 2012 thread, just so things remain organized and manageable. 

One and a half more crafting days in 2011!

You're quite welcome!  Perhaps I'll be more active here now that I'm out of school and under-employed. 

Doing some last minute picture taking to finish out the year.  I keep finding things that I've made and forgotten about.

I feel that this thread really raised my awareness on not needed to hoard supplies...they are readily available...thanks gaudiknight for your tremendous organizing, motivating and showing off your projects--quite inspiring!

See you guys in 2012!

Well shoot, been sewing since I was 3 at my sister's knee and never heard nor thought of fabric weights.
Great tip!

I've managed to use up two more balls of sock yarn today.

Wait, it gets better.

When I went to the yarn shop and two quilt shops yesterday, I manged to only buy what I needed for the project I am currently working on.

And....

When I go to the thrift store searching out sweaters to take apart for the yarn, I have a project in mind for those too and am only buying what will work for that project.

It is kind of amazing, the extra money I have left over when I don't just buy crafting supplies indiscriminately. And I am getting more things actually finished.

Yay! Cheesy
