Inspiration without application is moot.

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

Those are such cute dresses!  I love making tiny things but they sure do not use up a lot of stash and I tend to make a big mess dragging out all of the trims, buttons, etc.

I like this idea, I just wish I had crafty family & friends to share with  Smiley My younger sister is renowned for stapling hems up and superglueing buttons on!  Cheesy

While cleaning out a closet today I found 7 skeins of yarn my boyfriend had bought in hopes that he would start knitting again. I tried to give it back to him, but he refused, so now my stash has grown by 7 skeins. At least they will look nice in the blanket I'm making.

jfer007 I hope you post pictures of the blanket, I'd like to see what it looks like. The only thing more comfortable and comforting than a blanket is a handmade blanket Smiley

JessKelly  I have the same problem when I invite people over to make stuff with my stash.  They'll only ever use "scraps" to the point that sometimes I'll just cut some random chunks out of old scrapbook paper before they get there so they don't feel bad using it.  I'll have to try the goody bag idea.  Love your set-up, too!  

Finished some little notebooks last night.  They'd been sitting around nearly done for over a month.
