I am in! I tried last year but had so many things going on I couldn't manage it. This year is calmer. I have a bunch of yarn balls from odd projects I keep dreaming into a log cabin blanket and lots of fabric and things I've been asked to make! I too have some acryllic I'd like to get rid of so I have room for the more luxurious yarns I own.

Just trying to find me...

I definitely need to do this.  I have a whole walk in closet absolutely cram packed, and more "hidden" under my coffee table and in my desk at work.  Not that I mind having that much stuff (she who dies with the biggest stash wins!) but I feel that all those supplies get sad sitting around for years.

My G-ma and I are kinda doing the same thing.  We decided that with all the projects we are wanting to do we'll just do a specific type a month.  So January is Blanket month (Baby, snuggle, etc) and February is Apron month.   March is pajama month and April is Curtain month. and so forth.   Fortunately we both should be able to mainly work out of the stashes at both our houses... For some reason she constantly is spending part of her's home with me... It's out of control.. Grin

What a GREAT G-ma!
I need this craft-along...Not only do I have way WAY too much fabric, but I also have papercrafting supplies that could equip an entire elementary school!!! The rubber stamps, too, are going to have to be culled, and all the punches ditto, so I can find and use the ones I love, and bless someone else with the extras....
I also need to use up a TON of books for recycling (altered books, book purses, book birdhouses)...even the GARAGE is full of my projects, and they HAVE GOT TO GO!

hello, I just joined whilst looking for inspiration for what to do with my craft supplies which take over a whole room and expand into others.... Im very scared to have found 14 cross stitch projects I didnt even remember starting... endless material, knitting stuff, quilting stuff, card making, model horses, my little pony customs, soft toy making.... doll making...eeeep. I need to use up my stash (or admit defeat and pass it on to someone else). I also have recently bought more craft stuff because I cant find what I already have. Shameful!  So Im VERY glad to have found this thread Smiley

Oh wow, we've got a lot of people.  This should be fun!

For those who are interested in a the themed approach, may I suggest a repeat of last year's?  They seem to have enough variety to fit anyone's stash...

Not that themes are required for posting or anything like that, but I think the idea is that they can provide a little bit of inspiration if you're stuck on what to do with those 27 yards of polka-dots you've been sitting on for three years...

Ok, I have been sorting through my craft stuff alongside searching crafster Wink I have found a big bag of craft materials my mum gave me. in it is a huge bag of white plastic mesh shapes with holes in (like hearts, circles etc) which initially I thought were for children to do really simple tapestry/longstitch/cross stitch.... but they are way stiffer than normal "stiff" aida.. my husband thinks they are something to do with beads?? I have tried googling the name on the label (says PE shapes) but nothing sensible came up.... if I cant find out what they are then they are going (but where, since I dont know what they are?!) I seriously have to cut down on my craft stuff as its infiltrating every area! If you know what they are and what I can do with them, please let me know so I can reduce my stash!

Long-time member, first time poster here!

I've been trying to get a head-start on destashing my yarn since Thanksgiving of '09.  I have three huge plastic storage bins of yarn and have barely made a dent! Sad  I've been knitting small projects from those single balls of yarn that you don't have enough of to knit a big project with (i.e. Shedir and Knucks)

I'm also trying to use up a lot of stashed acrylic (bought with the intention of making a lot of cute amigurumi creatures) by knitting garter stitch blankets on the diagonal for charity.  I'm thinking Jared Flood's Tweed Baby Blanket will be a good base for these blankets.

After all the odd-balls of yarn and acrylic are tackled, I can move on to bigger projects with the larger bunches of yarn. Smiley

Goth Mummy- sounds like plastic canvas.

While, I have already started to destash, I have so much it could take me all year, or longer.

Is it bad that I made a fun hat out of cheep yarn to use it up then had to buy a sweater to match it? What is much worse is that I can no longer fit a bed in my room.
