Kookaloo_Starr, the dresden plates look great. The quilting in this craftalong has been awesome.

gaudiknight, love the socks!

My latest destash is not nearly as lovely but very practical. I decided to switch Helga, my hedgehog, over to fleece bedding (she use to have the paper bedding from the pet store). Used up a big (somehow already stained up) piece of fleece and shredded some of the scraps.

She is not impressed but as soon as I put her house back she snuggled down and went back to sleep so I guess it's Helga approved. If the fleece bedding works out I think I will invest in some prettier designs.



While looking for my fleece I found my first failed stencil attempt from about 8 years ago and decided to braid up some dog toys, one which has already been destroyed.

aww--I hope the fleece bedding works out for you!

My big dog also loves those braided toys, but they stretch too much and get ruined easily...I bought some cheap nylon rope, wrapped the fleece strips around the pieces, then braided...they are a lot stronger now!

Always that is a great idea with the rope!

I made a snowman wreath/figure/thing this week when I got home from vacation. The outline is made out of some styrofoam packaging I dug out of the trash at work. I then wrapped it in white fabric strips, then crocheted a little scarf and hat for him. I think he needs something else but I can't really decide on what.

I'm late joining this but I think I'm going to join anyway. My craft supplies keep growing so I have made a commitment to not buy anymore supplies until it all used up or at Christmas, whichever comes first. I'm starting to feel like a hoarder with it all so this will be a great way to cut down on my stash. A big part of my problem was that I worked at Michaels (quit beginning of June), but that I'm not will help as I won't be buying more supplies on every one of my breaks.

Welcome aboard, Calliemae!  Things get a little quiet around here in the summer, but the de-stashing continues.  Best of luck with the stash diet!  I know the hoarding feeling well.
