So here is something I made that actually fits the map theme \o/ My first de-stashing project Smiley


Here's a link to a more detailed description of the process and materials.

I only found this DeStash-along at the end of last month and I don't think I've posted in here before.  I accidentally matched up a couple of the challenges this month.
Color: Turquoise and Challenge 1 (scrappy projects)

Dolphin dishcloth


and a couple of Freeze Pop holders



A scrappy project and one for Challenge 2 (at least I think it will be a gift) - a Christmas stocking.

I would have never thought of freeze pop holders - what a great idea

chirel - That frame is beautiful!

cmouse - I love the idea of freeze pop holders.  But I always tried to make mine as slushy as possible...

alwaysinmyroom - I've been known to use tiny lengths of yarn I can't stand looking at any more as stuffing in cat toys and things like that.

Challenge 1: Trade stash with a friend - not the whole thing, obviously, but things you are tired of looking at will be shiny and new to someone else.

Have been making a ton of cards (mostly but not entirely from stash). Was getting burnt out last night so I whipped out some beads and memory wire for some 'change of pace' projects.

Made two bracelets for myself and two garden whimseys. Sorry but the garden whimseys tend to blend in with my crepe myrtle a little too well, so they're hard to see. Basically they're just longer versions of my bracelets.
I've also been trying to use up the partial skeins of sock yarn in my stash. Have made another three miniature pouches. Think they'll make good doll purses.

Oh, I like the garden whimsies! I've been trying to come up with reusable party decorations and this is an awesome idea. Now I know what to do with my bead stash Smiley

kbrison...I made two of those beaded suncatcher/whimsy things!  Aren't they fun?  Of all the things in my garden, the kids seem to like them the best!

Also, I have been making those little crochet bags from leftover sock yarn as well (we are on the same wavelength! Grin)....I plan on using a few for art abandonment and some to put in small gifts for Christmas.  I think a bowl of them at the front door filled with some wrapped chocolates or other goodies would be fun for guests to take home.

I thought about using them at Halloween as well...when I was a kid, I loved having little boxes and bags to store treasures!
