I like the idea of a list of what you have.

Wow, those dresses! Woo!
Adorable cards, impressive doily (OMG the Work in that!), Whee, cute baby stuff! And a very sweet nighty. Girls, you have been impressively busy! Me too, oh la. You should see the pile of finished work. It's not quite as large as the pile of unfinished work, lol, but will it ever be?

Thread used up so far


Pile of scraps, you'd think these would be small enough for me to be able to toss them out but no, lol.

I picked out a bunch of strands to try a scarf like this

And I suppose string bowls wouldn't be out of the question either...

Two tshirt quilts for the kids



And I am beyond pleased to report that I have busted the ENTIRE stash of left over pockets from pants cut up for other projects over the years. That's right, busted the Entire stash.

You can see them all here, there are LOTS of them!
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=424325.msg5046383#msg5046383
That was only 2 days of non-stop stitching. But I do really mean non-stop, like hungry dirty angry neglected children non-stop, lol. Lots of toast and cartoons at our house for a while.

Oh, and over 25 monsters mid-process too, I'm going to bust that sweater stash for GOOD!

Those scrap scarves are awesome...

have you seen those wonderful denim bracelets?  They seem a bit labor intensive, but they are cute and a nice way to use up some of the scraps as well...

I love your pocket hanger things....love

Holy crap, CLM! You are a stash busting fiend!! I bow to your awesomeness!!

I have a few things finished that I will post later today. Today is my oldest kiddo's last day of kindergarten! I'm so proud of her! And she's a little crafting crazy, too, so I think we will do some together to celebrate :-)

K_Starr -- So cute.  Thanks for sharing.  I think now I better go make my girls some summer nighties.  One was already complaining that she's too hot at night.

CLM -- Dare I ask if you have plans for those spools?  I dig the idea of saving them to see how much you've gone through.  But I would have trouble throwing out those wooden ones.  I guess that's why I need this destash-along.  Better get back to work.

Finished my outfit for the wedding  Grin
 I had the black and white floral chiffon sitting in a box for around 3 years now. I hate sewing with chiffon! The under corset top is also chiffon with the added PITA of sequins  Wink I also made a black underskirt with a lace hem. I didn't make the corset, I'm not precise enough with my measuring  Roll Eyes


As much as I don't like sewing this fabric I do have more in my stash so there's the possibility of another skirt before the end of summer, I might not like to sew with it but I love to wear it  Grin

You look ready for the wedding...

I, too, have several pieces of chiffon...I will be using two pieces shortly:  one for a bathing suit/lounge cover-up...and the other a tunic...

I love the look--so summery!

Always, I used up every little tiny bit of denim I had, lol. You can see where I needed to get pretty intensive and tiny to fill in all the spaces, there's a ton of stitching in those things! I love them so much, it will be hard to let any of them go.
Dulcet, I put all the wooden spools into the kids wood block bin, they build awesome castles and houses with those things. The plastic ones I throw out tho, I am not such a fan of plastic and hey, I gotta set some kind of limits somewhere, lol!
Kookaloo, WOO! What an outfit girl! That's some kinda awesome...

I back slid a bit and spent a great deal of time making teeny weeny things that bust nearly zero stash, le sigh. I have to force myself to work in large. I am such a fan of teh tiny.
Things turned out pretty cute though so no complaints in that regard. We had our hands full of the softest little tiny bunnies, the kids were all thrilled with their new friends.

Oh, and here's a pic of the article about the monsters I had at the library. Our local coffee shop has this pinned up on the wall. I love living in a small town Cheesy.
