Nice panels!  Are they hinged like a folding screen?

Love the tiny pincushion...that must have put a bite into your stash...ha ha Wink.

Thanks Smiley I didn't hinge them because one day they might end up hanging side by side on hooks on the wall. But now you've put the idea into my head I would like a folding screen! Not today. Maybe tomorrow. Or next year  Wink

I'm slow posting the UFO's I finished last month.  This was a sweater I started when I was learning how to use a knitting machine.  And now that I've finished it, I don't know any 4-yo to give it to.

I also finished a quilt that was supposed to be for my wedding.  MIL never did much with it, and gave it to me when she moved.  Then it sat in a garbage sack for too many years.  I decided to just get it done with nothing fancy.  And it is toasty!

Today me and my kids made some bead geckos for a charity that takes them to third-world countries.  Not a UFO, but a fun stash project.

The thing about believing that you can do anything is that you actually do things!

Oh my goodness! I love those geckos! I used to make those all the time when I was growing up. And that sweater has such fun colors!

I finished up a quick curtain for the bathroom, even the dowel rod came from my stash. Nothing fancy, a yard or so of some ikea fabric that I fell in love with years ago and it has been sitting in my craftroom since and a strip of black since it wasn't quite long enough. I sewed tabs on the ends so when I want to open it I just tuck the tab around the end of the dowel rod. I am planning on painting the walls black so I really think it will look great when I get it finished.

gaudiknight -- I am fascinated by the picture you found for December.  What is she making that Moravian star out of?

I really have no idea the background of the picture.  I found it in the commons on flickr, and there wasn't really any information to go along with it.

Hey folks!

I've got a few free moments today, and I'm trying to brainstorm ideas for next year.  Maybe you can help me out a little bit?

Things to consider:

-Are folks still interested in another year of destashing?
-How can we keep interest going all year? We get a lot of gung-ho people in January and tend to condense down to some really dedicated crafters by late Summer. (Ya'll are awesome!)
-Are the themes and challenges still helpful? Are there any in particular you would like to see again next year or any you really hope don't show up again?

Thoughts? Comments? DeStash projects?

I am interested in this thread.  I can't post photos, which sucks, but I enjoy reading about other people's projects and seeing what they do.  I've also gotten some great ideas from this thread.  It kind of also keeps me to trying to de-stash when I post that I'm going to!  Grin

I, too, would love the thread to continue. The challenges have been very good and inspiring, I think. I know, I'm probably one of those who are gung-ho (lovely expression Cheesy) in January and slow down later on. But I tend to be more busy at work in the autumn months, But I follow the thread, reads it, and post when I can.
- I think I have made one or two things, I haven't posted... I will go and look...

My daughter moved out - does that count as destahing? 
I made those small safetypin-holders: , and I gave a chair a new cover (have to do that to 5 more  Wink) . And my father, my sister and two of our daughters had a lovely afternoon making origami-trees and decorating my fathers closet in the forhall: . I can see my sister showed up in the mirror.
