My destashing isn't going very well. Thought I'd use a ton of my fabric stash for the quilt block swap, but one of my partners (our fearless leader/craftalong moderator) asked for a color I rarely buy, gray. So of course I had to buy several fat quarters of gray 'cause I want her blocks to have variety. Then I needed to buy some different greens than what I had, so I could be sure they went well with the gray and yellow fabrics for AIMR's blocks. Then Carolmb wanted her blocks in shades of green, but the greens needed to coordinate and read as solids, so had to buy even more greens. You see where this is heading, don't you? Fortunately for the purpose of reducing my stash, I think I have more than enough of the other colors and patterns I need for my other partners. And if AIMR claims she has to add to her yellow and blue stashes because of me, what can I say? Grin

Well does it count if I let my nieces add to their fabric stashes yesterday?  They each got enough to make themselves something and something for their sisters - dresses and jammies, but it all fit in their boxes, and they have specific projects in mind.

I on the other hand have set aside a giant bag full of fabrics to donate to the school, got rid of 2 bags of garbage, and what I thought would fill 5 large rubbermaid bins has filled 2 bins, 2 small bags, and 2 small boxes to go through, the plan is one 'bin,bag, or box/day or two depending on my work schedule.

January things to de-stash -
doll house - start putting it together
box of cut fabric - purple housecoat, pink housecoat, red hoody, camping quilt,cuddle luscious quilt

Here is the beginning of my craft room clean up. Got lots more cleaning and organizing to do but this is a good start I think.  For me to destash, it would take years lol.  I really want to just get everything put away so I can know exactly what I have.  Eventually I will ;-)

Used up some more stash for a swap (which was received so I'm safe to post Smiley) 3 yards (1.5 cotton and 1.5 minky) fabric for this baby blanket



And another 2 yards (1 cotton and 1 PUL) and a zipper for a travel bag - it is HUGE which is awesome since I wanted it for my shampoo, conditioner, body wash, etc for when we traveled last week!

Huh, somebody asked for yarn scraps and then never showed up. At least that made me go through my yarn stash and reduce it by half. I didn't have that much, though, just a bag and a basket. Just a (very full) bag now.

And my room... I have to take a picture tomorrow, maybe that will get me started with cleaning out some stuff and tidying.

Yarn scraps are great to leave out for nesting birds in the spring! Makes for some easier to spot colourful nests later on.

I've been saving my yarn trimmings for the birds, but I'm seriously thinking about chopping up some of my yarn remnants just for that purpose. It would destash them a lot faster than crocheting them into something.  Cheesy
