I've run into a problem since this destash has begun. And I bet it is one others of you have run into also.

While destashing can be great fun, I love the challenge to find projects I want to make that will work with the materials that I have, this clearing seems to be spreading to other parts of the house.  Undecided

Now I see that pile of books I really need to finish writing in my journal so I can donate them, the 'stuff' in the corner that I really need to find a new home for, either here or some where else.

And that is eating into my actual crafting time.   Shocked

But I bet I will be so well organized, both in the crafting realm and this other realm known as 'real life' by the end of this year!

Oh, did find another 1.5 yards of yellow fleece. No idea why I have it or when I bought it.  Roll Eyes I just know I can now make more socks for sonny boy without spending money.

I've finished two more UFO's.  Both of these were started in December, but it's good to get them out of the way.

First is the dress for my DD that I started as a Christmas dress.  All the materials, including the zipper, were given to me.  I had started, and asked her to try on the bodice to check the fit.  She basically let me know that I have no clue what teenagers wear these days.  (She is sooo 13!)  So I decided not to waste my time on something she wouldn't wear.  Now you can probably guess what happened when I finally did finish it.  She said it was so cute and asked who it was for!



I also finished the dress that I promised my sister for Christmas.  It's from a vintage pattern I bought at a thrift store, and made from fabric my Grandma-IL gave me.  My DD is modeling it here.  I should definitely get better photos when my sister comes to pick it up.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

Greetings Everyone,

I hope the month has begun great and filled with lots of ideas for you all. I know mine has so many wonderful projects on the list!!

Seeing how this month is about getting things in order. I figured would be a good time to get the beading corner done.  *signs* Time to stop putting it off. To go through the bins and box and sort it all out. Keep what I will use and  give away what I know I will not. Like plastic beads, and shape beads and so forth. Lots of which were passed on to me from others and I simply kept thinking I might use at some point. I am sure the local kiddo art center might be able to use them, or perhaps some other after school center, will look into that this week.

I am also looking into how to make  own design wall for quilts. I have a large bit of felt in a box from somewhere. Not even sure where it came from. But I am thinking if I stretched it across the wall behind the sewing area it could work.

Am off to see what damage I can do while this bug to get things in order is once again up on me.

well and wonderment

It is a lovely dress you made for your daughter, dulcet. As are the other costumes, you have been making through the years - your daughter are so lucky having such a talented mother.
  I love all the projects made, but the thread moves so fast, I can't comment on them all.
  I'm working from stash, and have spent no money on crafting in January. At the moment I'm working on a quilt for my niece, and I might have to by fabrick for the backside - but the rest, even the batting, is from stash.
  Great theme for February - organizing - so hard - but maybee I could just do a little bit...

I have a 1.5 yard strand of the camo yarn left which was not enough to do the last row of this hat which I had to edge in black. I'm happy to have used it all up and hubby is happy to have another hat.

I've run into another problem with de-stashing.  Along with my weakness for purchasing pretty varigated yarn  Roll Eyes, I've been gifted by TWO people the very lovely gift of yarn!

I've been crocheting scarves at the rate of several per week, but then the yarn supply has been replenished, erasing all the de-stashing I did!  Undecided

But think of it this way. Your stash didn't get bigger.
