carolmb -- do you hand baste your quilts?  I would put that off, too.  I just use those bent safety-pins cause I'm lazy and into instant gratification.


Not significant stash usage, but I've been meaning to make these for a while.  Just a couple of lined zipper pouches for my girls, so they have something to carry feminine hygiene supplies in their backpacks.



And I wish I had tons more of this fabric.  Wait...I'm trying to use up stash....

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

I am even lazier than you are dulcet...I use spray basting spray and those regular pin stoppers when I quilt...maybe that is why I have tons of quilt tops and not finished quilts! Grin

carolmb--your scarecrow is cute!  Perfect for the season!

dulcet--that is lovely fabric!

My stash just got bigger thanks to my Mom's friends giving me their stashes...I have boxes and boxes in my garage...I need to get plastic bins so that the mice won't get to the fabric...mostly clothing fabric, which I rarely make these days...*sigh* It never goes away...

Have done the pin and the spray. The last one I finished I hand basted and out of the three it turned out the best. Not so many bumps and pinches in the backing. I plan on still using the pins and spray. But for larger quilts will hand bast

Thanks alwaysinmyroom. I like most things about quilting. about the only thing I dont is basting blahh. But it has to be done, just part of the whole.

I finished yet another panel

Cross post from the 50 projects thread, but all of this was made with items from my stash. For acrylic yarn, I only have black left plus the cream I am currently using to make another blanket that is about half done. Once done with that, I'll either finally attempt making socks with sock yarn, or start spinning up new yarn. I'm going to a big fiber fest next month and will be bringing home more so that is why I'm working hard to use up what I already have.  Now just to figure out what to make with the few balls of cotton yarn I have.

Yarn Doll (my first one)

Pillow. This used up the last of that blue that I bought a few years ago!

Small doll blanket (it's about 5-6in square. for a 15cm doll)

Stashghan! this used up almost all of my acrylic yarn. I still have black left but didn't want to put black in this.

Resin hearts. I have some more resin items but still need to upload the pictures.

I have another blanket in progress. It's about half done and is cream colored. I'll post that when I finish. Smiley

October Themes


PC60-64-7 by Schlesinger Library, RIAS, Harvard University, on Flickr

Color:  Black 
Pattern:  Lace
For:  Cold Weather (If you live in the Southern Hemisphere, I of course meant to say Warm Weather gear)
Challenge 1:  If you're anything like me, you love the adrenaline rush at the beginning of the project, but by the time rolls around to clip threads, sew on snaps, and all the other little things that make a project truly finished you've gotten bored and moved on to the next craft.  So pull out those almost finished projects from wherever they're hiding, and take care of the finishing touches.
Challenge 2: Much like our pinterest challenge from earlier in the year this one is about all the lovely craft books you have lined up on your shelf.  If you have a book you love but have never done anything from, pull it down and see if something from your stash will suit.

Hello again!

I'd start out my post with the usual apologies for my absence, but I have a feeling you're all sick of those by this point.  On to the actual De-Stashing progress.

First and foremost a set of cards I made ages ago but only just got around to photographing.  My mother moved to Pittsburgh over the summer and I made these for her "change of address" letters.


I made a bunch of little flowers, which didn't even make a dent in the crochet thread stash.  No idea what I'm going to use them for, but they were fun.


On the crochet theme, I made this dress about a month ago, but it fell behind the couch and I just got it finished this morning.

I used up a box and some cardboard scraps I was saving for who-knows-what reason to make an organizer for scrapbook materials.  I have mixed feelings about it so far.


I turned a box full of tangled ribbon and some matte board remnants into a bunch of these.  I just took a picture of the more colorful examples.


While wrapping a gift I realized I had no bows, so a piece of scrapbook paper, hot glue, and a button turned into this.


And that's what I've got to show for September.  I've got several projects in various stages of completion.  My current goal is to get all of those done this week before tackling anything new.
