Eventually it will be part of a blanket. My friend and I have challenged ourselves to crochet a square a day to make blankets for the hospice who looked after her brother in his final days.

And the prize for first picture goes to KooKaloo_Starr!  Looking Good!

TendsTowardsChaos - Sometimes I find that unexpectedly emptied boxes (like the ones I accidentally upend ... all the time) provide a good opportunity to sort and weed as I put them back together.  I've done a lot of unplanned mini-destashing that way.

I have to put in my two cents... Wink  Every bit of stash I use, even if it's just the tiny end ball of a skein of yarn is still that much less I have in the house and that much less that I didn't spend money on or add to stash.

I've learned that even a bit by bit (like you did with the recycling, while your son was busy with something else) adds up to a lot done.  It's freeing to not have so much stuff.

First bite out of my stash for 2014, curtains for the baby's room! They are all 12x12 squares, and used up a handful of odds and ends I've had in the stash for years! Almost bought some white yardage for the back, but then I used a bottom sheet that I have been sewing the corners up on for a year or so but keep ripping for the lining.


I gave it its own post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430530.0#axzz2pJ7EMMnX

Seconded !  Cheesy

Think I will have will have to face my fabric stash - it's not that huge comparted to others but there is so much in there that I just will not use!  I have already de-stashed my yarn (will post pic later) but I think the fabric might have to be next!   Smiley

My first projects for this year are also made from my stash. Yay for being able to cross post. Cotton washcloths, three sets of six. More to come later!

Pretty!  How did you make those? They don't look knit or crocheted.  Are they woven?  I've never seen woven washcloths like that before.

I love the curtains! They're so cheerful. Nice stitching, Kookaloo_Starr and Vampedangel14!

The box of paints was weeded through with my last project, thankfully. The recycling was clean-up from holiday crafting and, weirdly, breast milk storage bottles (I had scores of these since my DS was a NICU kid) I was saving for... something crafty.  Huh Yeah... I just thought of something else that needs to be recycled today.

Thanks for the curtain compliments!
Vampedangel- I am so interested in those washcloths! I read on 50 projects you used a washcloth loom, but I'm still confused! They just look so awesome and pretty, I'd love to understand better!
