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

Don't feel bad, Meovari. And don't feel guilty - just tell them, you have stopped buying fabrick, they will understand that. Don't even think of buying stuff you don't need, because someone else expect you to. It is OK to say 'no'. (I have been there, done that, and still struggle with the same attitude)

For those of us who are struggling with the 'What in the world can I do with this?' problem, would selling some of our things still count as destashing?

For myself, I bought two lengths of corduroy last fall for skirts, absolutely fell in love with the material. But once I brought them home, I looked at them and thought 'What in the world was I thinking?'  Shocked

I can honestly say I can't see myself ever using this material.

On a good note, I have begun one of two doll dresses or maybe they will be coats from a left over skein of yarn.

In my opinion anything thing that makes the stash smaller is de-stashing so selling or giving it away works fine  Smiley

I bought a skein of yarn today but it won't be sitting about looking pretty I'm under orders to make hubby more hats  Grin

K-star--are you changing up the ribbing on those Divinity Hats?  I love the pink one...but it does not look like a FPsc ribbing at all...

I did not make anything white or dots for January, but I did manage to destash a ton of kimono scraps and a small portion of yarn...and, I did not buy anything at a craft store, but I did spend $ for yarn...I am not going to buy yarn in February...

I am going to have to do a lot more destashing soon, as my dear Mother will be moving in with me so I can care for her...she will be moving into my office so I have to find a place for my desk and file cabinets somewhere else... talk about forced destashing!

My hubby will be so happy that I found this thread! I am going to play along with you guys this year. Just made something with some pink terry cloth for a swap - ill post pics once my partner receives.

I bought a snap press last month  Shocked but I have been wanting one for ever. I won't set a price limit for the year, but I will try to stick to buying only essentials to finish or complete projects that I craft from my stash.

I do the ribbing in FPDC/BPDC.

I need to modify the edging on the Purely Puffs hat, at the moment when I put it on it looks like a 1950s swimming cap  Roll Eyes

I looked more closely, and I see that---it just looked a lot lacier...it might be the yarn...such lovely work...

I used DK yarn & a 5mm hook for the pink one, I guess that's why it looks lacier. It came out slightly smaller than the WW ones.
