I just finished version #2 out of some awesome peacock fabric I got from the charity shop about a year ago, I'm phobic about birds but this is abstract enough to be "safe". I'm waiting (im)patiently for my pics to upload to the computer.
4 metres used in one day YAY!  Cheesy
what I really need is more pants though, I have a lot of tops but not much choice for my bottom half  Undecided

Cute Kookaloo!  Both those tops would look lovely with  dark jeans I think

I have some lovely dark blue flared jeans cursive_queen  Smiley

I have about 5 pairs that are slightly too small for me too (given to me by my Mum) I read somewhere that when you make a skirt out of jeans it's best to use a pair that are slightly too small so I've been hanging on to them working myself up to having a go  Cheesy

Very nice crafts and stories of stash busting progress being posted; dulcet, I have to find that dress pattern because it's gorgeous and alwaysinmyroom it sounds like you have things under control! What organisational skills. I have to confess I did buy some fabric today but I no longer had any black fabric in my stash and I needed it to finish off a project made from stash materials. Also it was from the second hand store so with all of those excuses combined I think it's ok. Better to buy a little to help use up a lot of my stash than to buy nothing and have a pile of half made stash projects.

Crafting 'cause I can't help myself

I work for a promotion company, we promote Gothic, Industrial and EBM shows in the Northwest, one of the things I actually love doing is throwing after parties and hosting bands over night at our house.
 This weekend I hosted 5 people and actually enjoyed it as we now have the routine of set up down, same with throwing after parties, once you do it a few times you can breeze through one.
 We hate wasting stuff so we have been collecting reusable plastic dishes, cups, glasses and real silverware as we would rather wash than toss. One of my goals is to collect a bunch of plain shot glasses at thrift stores and glass paint the rims like blood.
Anyway the band bought a bottle of SKY vodka (nice stuff) and left me about half a pint because I had asked for the cobalt blue bottle thinking they would finish it. I don't drink much and I drank too much this weekend, which for me is less the entire weekend than most guests drank at the event/after party, and I really didn't need 8 short shots of vodka.
So of course I made 3 small spray bottles of vodka/essential oil air freshener out of it to take temptation out of the way
Anyway while it may not be very "Rocker" of me it was very "Craftster" and I can live with that.

I need to get myself together and join this one. My stash isn't that large and my craftspace is fairly organized, but there is one area that is causing trouble. I have an abundance of one supply item that is taking up too much room. I am afraid I went on a supply binge a while ago and need to do some very specific stash busting. If I get rid of these particular supplies, I will have more storage room for the rest of my suppkles (and possibly a clear work space.)
I will try to get my pics done so that I can join. I also have a couple of organization ideas that I would like to share, so this will be motivation to do that as well.
I really like seeing everyone's craft areas and their ideas for organizing/working in them.

It's better than what I do JessKelly. I buy a lot to destash a little.

Joining so I can destash a bit.

I have a closet full of fabric about 10 still unused patterns and a whole box of wool for felting.

Well, no choice on the destashing. I'm losing my house and will probably end up giving just about all of it away. I'm going to freecycle and see what I can do. I lost my job and now only work part time, so foreclosure is on the horizon. Just need to finish my swap with Kookie and then get on and get rid of all the 'stuff'. I would send it to you all, but can't afford to ship this tonnage. LOL, I will recover. I just need to whittle down to what I can fit in my truck. Sad times, but life goes on and I can always get more stash.
