Dulcet, It was quite thick wool yarn on a cross stitch fabric (I don't remember what this is called in english, sorry). We never got a chance to test it, but once I tried to unravel one of them and it was hard work, so I suppose it would have felted. The plan is to use them to make totes. One day. Now I'm focusing on the penguin hat (poorly, since I forgot to knit today, too).

quaggy: your antique craft-supplies reminded me that I had meant to go through my stash and figure out how old my oldest craft-materials or projects actually are. And maybe start destashing there Cheesy

Just by thinking I know I have some cross-stitched blocks my mom made (she meant to make a rug, but it didn't work out). I've held onto those blocks meaning to do something with them for the past 20 years? I wonder if there's still older stuff somewhere.

Oh, I almost forgot. The first project I'm going to let go is a leather top-hat from an old leather jacket. The idea just didn't work and it's been sitting in my drawer waiting for a miracle for almost a year. Bye-bye Smiley

I'm in Smiley

Here is what I'm going to do in 2015:
1. Focus on one project at a time,
2. Every time I decide to work on a project I'll choose another project (unfinished/just planned) or some random material in my stash to let go (trash/donate/whatever, but out of my life it goes)
3. Also let go of one project every month.

The first project is a knitted penguine hat for my son. It's almost finished, but not quite.

I love the fact that you guys get things done Smiley Quilting is something I'll definitely try someday. My plan for next year (I'm putting it here until there's a thread for 2015. Will there be?) is to work on just one craft at a time and when I choose my project I'll choose one craft (plan/material/UFO) to give up and let go of. I'll also choose one to let go every month (or week if it seems to work better). This should make a noticeable dent in my stash.

This year I didn't craft as much as I thought I would. Instead I sort of got into donating stuff. I suppose that counts as destashing too. I have a huge bag of yarn waiting for Febryary when I have some friends visiting me. They get forst pick of it and then I'll just donate the rest. I have similar plans for my sewing supplies. I feel like I just don't have the time for all these different crafts and all the materials are just weighing me down and cluttering my mind. So, next years destashing will propably be mostly about donating.

Planning for September. I'm going to knit some hats for the kids and make produce bags from an old lace curtain. Funny how my plans seem to match with the challenges. Third month in a row that this happens.

What about you?

I forgot. I once tore my black fishnet tights and mended them by covering that place with a painted lace flower. Then I added a bunch on the same leg to make it look like a design. It was silly, because I had to wear the tights to be able to sew the flower on so I kept poking myself a lot. A week later I had small pinpricks in the shape of flowers on my leg Cheesy
