Next year I plan to use a lot more stash, working at fabricland the last 6 months has tempted my to buy lots of fabric, I will buy 2-3 pieces for next Christmas - some black/silver organza, some copper taffeta, and some black satin.  My brother's family is doing a black and silver tree next year, and we'll be doing copper.  The goal will be to use ALL of my scrapbooking paper up next year, and ALL of my fabric up, and ALL craft kits that are in cupboards/boxes/bags must be completed before I buy more.


Some projects that should use some up quickly - aprons, placemats, wall-hangings, stockings, gift bags/shopping bags.

Looking for 100% Cotton scraps.  Miss G wants to make a scrap quilt for as little $ as possible, so if you have something that she could use, please pm me.

After Christmas crafting update!

I managed to make a few things in between seasonal retail work (oh joy)

A Yarn Tote that used up about a yard of stash.  It's big enough to hold three skeins of yarn and a mostly finished giant granny square:

A CD holder (pretty boring and self explanatory) that used up a little over half a yard.

And a bunch of little notebooks.  Lots and Lots, and there are still more to be made for after Christmas presents.

Still working on plans for next year's DeStash-Along, so if you have any ideas, speak up!

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?

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!
