I do have to admit that probably 75% of my fabric stash was inherited.  So I wouldn't be able to sew nearly as much if somebody else hadn't hoarded.  Undecided

I haven't bought fabric for years now..at least 10 years...due to the generosity of the older generation.  So I completely agree.  I guess that is what I was trying to say earlier.  I think of it is a gift from the past.  I think it is sadder to have something that some one worked on and is unloved, then something they enjoined buying (for what ever reason) but didn't use, kept it because they STILL loved it, then passed it on, and then that inspired someone to make something with it.  I guess it is something about the threads tying us all together.  I suppose the lesson is to use the things that we really love, whether we were gifted them or chose them Grin

Plus...it's not like our grandfolks were sitting around playing video games and watching telly.  They were busyer back then.  I always feel like I'm helping the one who bought the fabric by turning it into something Grin

Someone remarked to me that the younger generation is not into handmade things or art...I just about crawled down her throat!  I ranted and raved about all of you guys...how she needed to open her eyes and look for special people of all ages that are putting themselves out there by making art, knitting, quilting, making monsters, and poppets, hats for charity, clothing, costumes, great food, etc. I pointed her to this inspiring and hopeful website...all of us on Craftster defy the stereotype of lazy, unproductive people interested only in tv and video games!  I am proud to be part of this destash group who nods to the past generation and does something for now and the future! YAY for us!

I have always been crafty ever since I was a kid, probably thanks to the Girl Scouts. I love trying different crafts and am finally finding the ones I really enjoy doing best. I work a full time job and right now there are only two or three shows I watch on tv (not even all on the same night). I admit that I am a gamer but I still craft a lot! I have a small craft room so that should be obvious. I have carple tunnel in my right wrist, which is my main hand, so sometimes I need to take a break from crafting and that's when I game for a bit. This month I have been writing (for NaNaWriMo which ends Sat).  Sure, doing these crafts I'm still just sitting around, but at least I am productive. No lazy here!

I remember that you did that last year!  Take care of your hand!  I had a bout of nerve damage and could not knit for about two months...it nearly killed my spirit!  I now rest between projects and even stop to eat some food or go potty...taking a break is good for us all!

December Themes


ConDev7360B by State Archives of North Carolina, on Flickr

Color: Blue 
Pattern: Shiny
For: The House
Challenge 1:  This is such a busy time of year whatever DeStashing you get done this month is just icing on the cake.  But if you have time, it might be a good idea to just take a look around your stash again and see how far you've come.
Challenge 2:  Help come up with new ideas to make the 2014 DeStashAlong even better!

Har, har...destash along queen. I actually signed up for more than I wanted..just to get rid of some.

These posts here are bringing me down...GUESS WHAT GIRLFRIENDS??? Time that we fly!!!!

Let's look over the mountain and under the woods. We are strong women. Make like we should. Grin

Let's put it out there for shares and smiles. And everyone can have some fun.

Running in my underwear. Or not even that  Grin Love the fun on here, and continue to keep it so.

Share the excitement. We can all smile along.  Roll Eyes That is the goofy one, but I like it.

I think I just wrote a poem, and don't even know it.

But to destash is all the world to me. And I don't want to be the one that my family has to get rid of my crap.
I would rather share it sooner. If I can. And share to people who can use it, appreciate, and enjoy!  Grin

Sorry if I just made a crazy post. Feel free to delete and spank me, but I like it all the same, and with all these crazy artists here with their silly Harry Potter stuff, and the Dr. Who???

Spank me again, I am a nut. But I love all you marvelouse people. Love that we can share.

I cleaned and organized most of my craft stuff this weekend. Many things were destashed to the trash! I now can get my fiber into my craft 'closet' instead of just stuffed inside plastic bags piled up on my bookshelf. I still have more to go through. I was going to finish yesterday but I ended up reading instead and lost track of time. Ooops. and now my long weekend is over and I have to go back to work. wah.

Hope everyone here who celebrates it had a nice Thanksgiving.

gaudiknight -- I am fascinated by the picture you found for December.  What is she making that Moravian star out of?

I've been cutting strips of fabric and braiding them to make a rag rug so that may take some time to complete but will put most of my fabric stash to use  Smiley

I've been picking up old rolls of wallpaper whenever I find them for some unknown project in the future. Also, I was given three long and narrow wooden frames, the kind with lots of spaces for displaying photos. I put two and two together and got... three (pieces of wall art). Now pretend the wall is wood paneled or painted an inky blue, that's the fantasy wall they'll be displayed on one day.   

I think it's a nicer thing to look at than the phone outlet that was just sitting in the middle of the wall, not even trying to look remotely attractive.
