My issue is picking things up at the thrift store to use in a one-day-maybe-I-might-make-something-with-this craft. Sigh. I just bought a lime green fleece jacket that I have zero plans for. The inside is orange plaid though, I've never seen anything like it and couldn't pass it up. What is the matter with me? And baskets? They have piles of the nicest, most expensive looking baskets. I don't need them and can't even really use most of them for storage but I've got a big pile going now. *shakes head*
Oh well, I've been making lots of Teesha Moore patches with the scrap fabric stash I've got so even though they are tiny it's using up little bits at least.
I'm going through our clothes right now and getting rid of anything that isn't natural fibers, I can't tell you how tempted I am to keep it all to use in crafts but it's going to the thrift store, I'm forcing myself.

I have a whole shelf that I know I'll probably never use and really should donate to Goodwill.

Nearly all my fabric comes from old clothes. Anything good enough goes to the charity shop, but that really isn't that much, I wear my clothes for (usually more than) their useful life, I really hate clothes shopping.

I just cut up a condemned fleece jacket: but I've found a use for the sleeves already: they are now padding for my ironing board, which had a particularly thin and weedy cover. I find that re-using frees me from the perfectionist route as after all, it doesn't matter if it was only going to be thrown away anyway.

Oh, yes: condemned clothes usually have to be made unusable as soon as possible or I will rescue them from the condemned pile & wear them again Roll Eyes<big sigh>.

I do that too  Embarrassed
A lot of my fabric is sheets and duvet covers, the whole family donate them to me when they buy new & I scour the local charity shops for groovy bedding too  Grin

I'm slowly plodding through my yarn stash at the moment, I doubt I'll make a serious  dent in it though  Shocked

Love the black and white blanket--and it is striped!  Is it a gift?

ha ha I pulled a top out of the bag I use to "donate" (it has been sitting in the room for about a year now)...I have no memory of why it was put in there in the first place...oh yeah, it is sort of ugly and hubs hates it...oh, but it is clean! Cheesy

Ha! I've totally pulled old things from my stash that I didn't remember putting there and worn them again. It's still destashing, right?

The socks are beautiful!

I also like the scrappy quilt...I have never seen one done in that shape...it looks like you have to use foundation paper?  It is going to be huge and colorful..I like it a lot!

Love the darker green socks. I really need to try making socks someday. I keep collecting sock yarn, 2 skeins in each color. What size needles do you use?

I have been slowly destashing, bit by bit. Since I have put myself on a budget, I am not trying to use up my large stash. Just keep it manageable. I am hoping to buy a house in a couple years and  need to start saving. Luckily, I have enough stash to keep me busy.

I did finish a woven bracelet. I like them to wrap double around the wrist so they take longer.


projects I am planning:

a couple more woven scarves
more woven bracelets both flat and round
fabric baskets for yarn storage
infinity scarf, my sister keeps mentioning them
naalbinding with my new needle, a hat?
use resin before it goes bad
