Finally finished my blocks for the quilt block swap. Yeah! And all were totally from stash except AIMR's (I didn't have much gray fabric, so purchased a few fat quarters to meet her color request).
Melladh's blocks

Danynn's blocks

Sloth's blocks

Donniesgirl's blocks

Carolmb's blocks


Destashed some Red Hat fabrics, embellishments, and patterns to another Craftster friend.


Destashing project I'm proudest of though was based on something I saw on Pinterest. I've been substitute teaching for several weeks at the school my father and daughters graduated from, so when I was asked to create a Fiesta-themed bulletin board for our class, I agreed and started pulling out stash supplies. The third graders made a total of 11 flowers (1 for each) and did everything themselves except hot glue the layers together. It used about 60 grocery sacks and more than a dozen super long hot glue sticks. I bought a bundle of 500 sacks several years ago to use for school projects. I still have several hundred left, so was delighted to use so many for this one project. Each flower is 3-4 ft. wide.

those flowers are lovely!! Did you use a tutorial?

did you mean 3-4 inches wide?  It is hard to tell scale from your picture...4 feet wide is HUGE, though...

No, AIMR, I really meant feet! You should have seen the kids holding them as I was stapling them to the bulletin board. Two kids easily fit behind each flower. No tutorial, just a photo I saw on Pinterest.

Thanks for the compliments! Will share them with the kids since they did most of the work. They were so proud of themselves. Amazing what 8 yr. olds can do with a little bit of guidance.

I am loving just going into the craft room to find supplies and not having to go to the craft store and spend money.  Plus, cleaning the craft room has unearthed many items I forgot I had Smiley  This is the year of destashing and it's going so well so far.  No dent made AT ALL but it's still fun and good to work from the stash.

Looks like your destashing is going well!  I particularly like your wreaths!

I am loving the spring theme of many of your projects.

It's been a while since we've had activity - Is everyone out enjoying the spring weather?

I've got a few quick projects to post - all tiny things so they don't use up much stash, but every little bit helps.

I knit a sweater for a 4 inch tall doll.  That used up maybe 3 yards of yarn.


First by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

I tried my hand at paper cutting.  I wasn't even going to count this as DeStashing, since it only used two sheets of paper, but then I found a frame for it tucked away in stash so it felt like a more substantial effort.



And finally a set of Easter Cards - A few sheets of cardstock and scrapbook paper, and an excuse to use a stamp I've neglected for ages and ages.
