gaudiknight those little notebooks are amazing!

I didn't really use the challenges to my advantage this year. I can't remember it was done this year but how about a challenge for using some stash of a craft that either you haven't done in a long time or bought supplies for and never dived in and tried it?

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.

Love those notebooks!  What did you use as a base?

I also love the CD holder...I wonder if circular needles would fit?  I need an easy solution to storing my circulars...

I think maybe a fun challenge would be to give a quantity to use up:

Like 1 yard of fabric, 2 skeins of yarn, 25 beads, etc. 

You could do a Pinterest made from Stash Project.

How about a "make more than one" challenge?  Two hats, two bags, etc.

alwaysinmyroom - that's a great idea about trying circulars in there.  I can't ever get my circs organized.

Great ideas for challenges.  Maybe we should have multiple challenges during the months?

Okay, popping by with two quick housekeeping items.

1) The 2013 DeStash-Along thread has gone live!
2) You can continue to post 2012 projects here for the next few days, just in case it takes you a little while to get pictures.  I'll officially close us up on the 7th.  Does that seem reasonable?

Oh, and just because I'm finishing up small projects in drips and drabs - a teeny tiny sweater.  But it's still one less ball of yarn in stash.

I have finished some items for Christmass present, but have been to busy to take pictures and to post.  Embarrassed I have finished my spiderweb quilt (a gift to my brother), finished a very old WIP - a t-shirt for DH - made 4 scarves and a pair of wrist-warmers for my sister, my daughter and my 2 nieces,  and a pillow with a crocheted lace-band for the 3. niece, all from stash except the filling for the quilt. Maybee I will post it in a separate post, when I got the photos loaded.

It have been such a wonderfull inspiration to have this tread, and I will look foreward to meet you all on the 2013 thread. Thank you to Gaudyknight, and a happy New Year to you all!

oh I love the tiny sweater!  I am going to use 2013 to use up a lot of the leftover bits in my stash!

craftylittlemonkey - Those projects are amazing!  I especially like the sock creature (those little wings are adorable).

I estimate I did about 45 craft projects last year, 40 of which were primarily from stash.  I bought 2 yard of purposeless cloth just because I liked the patterns, and I have a few partial skeins of yarn lying around that were bought to finish up stash projects.

Not all my stash projects made it onto the board, but the ones I was really proud of did.  I finished another little sweater yesterday, but there hasn't been any light for taking pictures.  So if the weather cooperates in the coming week, expect one more little project from me.

 Tongue. so sad for me.  I just reneged on what I wrote yesterday. We went to Walmart and of course I had to check the craft area and I ended up purchasing four skeins of yarn because I liked the colors. I'm a sucker for vargiated yarns.

Oh well.
