I love those baby bibs. Clever and useful.

I acutally destashed about 600 records today at an indoor yard sale, but I have plenty to craft with and now have about 4 boxes more space and money in my pocket. LOL

I sold a very large box of fabric for $5, yes, giveaway, pretty much, but that also freed up space. A few crafting supplies sold. I really hated having people in my messy space. Only one couple today that wasn't a gray hair like me. They saw my messy house and left without buying anything. :-)

You know, if I came into an indoor yard sale at just about anyones house, if I saw a big box of anything crafty, i'd have been all over it, messy or not!

Lovesclutter Give-away price or not, its a great feeling to make space and get a little money while doing it.  And it probably made someone else really, really happy.

I've got two little quick destash project from last night (Thursday seems to be my late-night sewing night, no idea why).  I actually finished the entire scrap of fabric with them, which makes me feel really proud, even if it was a small piece to begin with.  Nothing had to be put away at the end!

Very nice tiny projects gaudiknight! I need to come up with more tiny projects; I keep small pieces of fabric thinking they will be useful but I don't actually come up with a use for them. I might have to write a list. Lists solve everything Wink

Belladune, we think alike. Had a girl call that missed the sale, and will give/sell more fabric when I'm off again. I already have a lot more space in the living room. If you guys need anything cheap or will pay the postage, just pm me. Especially paper crafters. LOL

The doll dresses are sweet AD. I like the props in the dark hair doll's hand.

vampedangel14, that is a project I need to be working on myself. We have plenty of heavy weight, but no real light weight blankets.

JessKelly,hehe. I wish list cured everything. I'd be so perfect right now, I'd be living on Mount Olympus. Wink

lovesclutter, wow, that is a lot of records to destash.

For my news, I've used up another yard of fleece to make three more pair of socks. I have no idea why I have it or when it showed up.  Roll Eyes
 
I am coming by to say I most likely will be sporadic in updating for a while, even though I have been finishing up projects. Somehow I have the BING tool bar (from M****soft) and it is causing havoc. I've been trying to remove it for two hours now. So instead of being able to sew or paint or walk in the sunshine, I am saying 'to heck with it' and learning Linux.  Angry I'm really tired of always having to spend my crafting time fixing the comp.

As I work on a couple of projects that are taking a little too long to complete I thought I'd try something else to help reduce my stash. I invited my mum and sister over for a "Make Do and Mend" session; I laid out threads, ribbons, buttons, fabrics and books for inspiration and they each arrived with a few sewing projects they were working on. Unfortunately (perhaps fortunately?) I have a very polite family and they were hesitant to use my supplies! As a result the stash was reduced by a pretty insignificant amount; I practically had to pelt them with buttons and fabric as they walked out the door! If anyone else wants to do something along these lines in an effort to reduce their supplies I strongly suggest making up goody bags of supplies for them to take as a parting gift. But they made lots of progress on their projects, I received a peppermint plant and good company for the effort and you can't really ask for more than that Smiley

That is a great idea. I wish I had someone in real life who I could swap with.  Sad
