I have de-stashed more than I've posted, but not really that much. Work responsibilities have really got in the way of what I like doing. Oh well.

I did some final destash last night as we waited for the various New Year things drop...in our area, Harrisburg drops a strawberry and Hershey raises a big Hershey Kiss! Grin  We also have a Wrench drop, a pickle drop and a rose drop...

Anyway, I purged all of my sewing patterns...they filled a large black trash bag for recycling. Glad to be rid of them...most were from the 1980's---big old wide shoulders and slim skirts...ugh...

Here is to a fresh new start in 2014!

It probably says something about my pattern hoarding that hearing about all those patterns going away just makes my heart hurt.  Even the terrible looking ones are often based on good bones and you can make cool stuff by looking past the pattern picture.  But I totally understand that there's not a lot of options to do with used ones in a lot of places.

I have used them so much that the tissues are pieced together with tape that is now brittle...I saved all the "classic" ones that can be modernized with newer fabrics, but in all honesty, I am not that interested in sewing clothes any more...with fabric costs going up, buying clothes is really a lot less expensive for me. I also had a lot of jackets and business clothes patterns...I mostly wear jeans and t-shirts to work now.  I would offer the patterns to you if I thought they were in good shape, but they are not Sad

One last UFO that got finished yesterday.  It was a practice/toile/prototype six years ago.  It's been sitting around just needing neck facing, zipper and hems.  Hopefully it'll fit my niece.



So my goal for 2013 was to finish one UFO each month.  I missed two months: May because I was concentrating on ballet costumes for the performance, and October because I was making Halloween costumes.  But I finished a total of 20 projects!  I'm thrilled!  Thanks everybody for making this such a great destash-along!

always, I really do understand, I don't want to make anyone feel bad about getting rid of them.  Smiley  I am super hard on patterns, so most of mine are really unusable to anyone besides myself and I will probably have to toss them if I ever get rid of them. I know everyone on here is really good about sharing/swapping/freecycling supplies because no one wants to see them go to waste.   Yeah, sewing your own clothes really is not the economic option, so I wouldn't expect anyone to do it unless they enjoy doing it.
