Those curtains & washclothes are absolutely wonderful! The quilt was a masterpiece! I have finished 2 quilt tops from stash fabric so far. I will cut out #3 & 4 tonight I hope. After those are done, I'll finish them up & donate them.

I was able to knock out two bits of stash!

I re-made a headband that I somehow misplaced between work and my apartment:



And I finished a hat I started a few months ago, but then forgot about due to Christmas crafting:




I also went through one of my craft boxes yesterday and discovered it was half full of memorabilia. Cards, notes, pictures, little things like that. One of my goals for this year (while not technically destashing) is to organize that. I'm going to find something to do with all these precious goodies, instead of hiding them away! I'm thinking about binding some cards together and make a book with some of  the super special ones I don't want ruined.

Thanks for the comments! I have odds and ends left so my next ones will be a mix of all the above colors. Cheesy

You can get a potholder loom at most craft stores. They come with cotton loops, but I've never used them. Here is a video that shows the way that I do it. Very easy and a great way to use up cotton yarn!

Thanks Vampedangel! My daughter has that loom and the loops, but isn't too into it. I much prefer the look it gives with the yarn like you did!

I was active in the Red Hat Society several years ago, and bought quite a bit of RHS fabric during that time. I'm no longer involved with the group so I've been donating my stuff to various friends who are active Red Hatters. These pieces of cotton fabric are heading to a Craftster friend in Texas who quilts.

I'm also sending her some iron-on decals and an applique patch as well as a stamp that I hope she'll be able to use. Glad to give them to her, but even happier for myself to de-stash them.

I finished one of my UFOs today. It's a magnetic 'to do' list. I printed out a list of the chores I need to do daily/weekly onto magnet-backed-paper, then used my rotary cutter and quilting ruler to cut nice, straight lines. The strips of blue are just the leftover edges of the magnetic sheet colored with a sharpie. Organizational refrigerator poetry.  Wink




I also did some more decluttering of my craft room. I sorted through my desk drawer filled with all of my tools and got the junk out of it. My box of ribbon got emptied... most of it was inherited from a friend and in bad condition, so I pitched it. The few spools that were new got added to the donate pile because I have no immediate use for them.

Definitely cleared some shelf space tonight.. We picked up a kid's airbrush kit at goodwill a while back, looked like it had never been used. We finally got around to trying it tonight, and the hose was kinked, bad. My husband took the whole thing apart and tried to repair it, but it just wasn't happening. So we were able to throw out the airbrush portion into the garbage. My daughter and I were able to blow into the back of the markers and make them work as airbrush and we used up two canvases from the craft store, aka my laundry room. We were just experimenting, but she wants to hang them up in her room, so win win.

It's a bummer about the airbrush kit, but the artwork turned out awesome!  Heck, I'd hang them in ~my~ room, too!  Great job!

I love that to-do list!  What a great idea!  I have a bunch of magnets that I was given from a friend who is a seamstress, but closed her business.  That is a genius idea for something to do with them.

brandyk -- Wait, did you just say that you're working on quilt tops 3 and 4?  You're smokin!  I've been super laid back during Christmas break with all the kids home.  Maybe I'll get in gear once they go back to school.

Finished up a swap package using supplies from the stash - I'll post once it's received. Also going to try to work on a wreath that has been in my pile for a while today Smiley
