You cannot give me too much work; to accumulate work has almost become a passion with me: my study is so full of it now, that there is hardly an inch of room for any more. I shall have to throw out a wing soon. (J.K.Jerome)

Wow, I just had to go through 15 pages to catch up. I hadn't realized it's been so long. And as always, there are so many great pojects!

I did a bit crafting, and it was practically all from stash! And mostly for the Ongoing Wish Swap. (Anything bought last year, say, ordered Dec 31, counts as stash, right?) Anyway I'm just being all relaxed right now, not working on my presentation for Wednesday at all, so I thought I could post a few pictures... and then I went through my images, and it seems I haven't posted anything here this year, can this be possible? Time flies! Here we go:

A tiny little dollhouse for a dollhouse. Height is about 2in.


A wrap bracelet and two dollhouse-size necklaces (or human-size rings).


This is just destash now: 4kg of Fimo (including a bit of tools, pigment and stuff). The old stuff. From before there was the distinction between Fimo soft and Fimo classic. So more than 10 years old, mostly left to me by my mom, and I couldn't make it work anymore (hurts my hands). So I gave it away.


This took care of a whopping 2 inch picture frame, two post-its, and one little piece of soapstone... The six pebbles were obtained specifically for this, I was walking around head down for weeks!


A tic tac toe pouch (made a second one in teal with brown, with yellow & purple xs and os). Have to keep practicing, someday these will turn out as planned!


Two pincushions, a bird and a wrist thingy - two woolen jacket sleeves went into those.



Some felt & beads (is it Christmas yet?) as a thank you for texscrapper (for the great purple unpaper towels!)


Embroidery hoop, felt, thread, mother of pearl buttons:


Mini crayon rolls/pencil cases (I even made one more for my daughter beforehand, (not pictured) that fits 5.5 pencils... I keep forgetting to add a few mm for turning!


Very relaxing multi strand necklace for me (I had made one for someone else and I loved it so much...) - now I have lots of this beadsoup leftover. Anyone? The colours are a bit more toned down in real life.


Sewing machine organizer mat. This one actually used up a noticeable bit of stash!


A little velvet clutch with polkadot lining. I butchered a little black skirt from a friend for this:




And from when I couldn't find the camera, and forgot to turn the picture over... Alice in Wonderland Drink Me bottle - and I'm so hoping it still holds up! I wish I had used resin instead of water, I didn't think about this until after I was done!


Beaded bracelet, still my favourite craft (with a little stamped taggie. Hammering on things is great, too!)


I think there was more in January (already on the external drive), and some stuff for the kids, but I don't know where those pics are, so I think I better stop here and go to bed.

fabulous destashing projects, anna!!!

love those pencil rolls and also the sewing machine mat!

The rock family is very cute...oh boy, I have tons of rocks in my yard to try that!  Not sure I can destash all of the rocks... Grin

lol I have plenty of stuff given to me that I need to destash...great May theme!

k-star--I love Jenny's videos!  She really is a good teacher...I used to belong to Missouri Quilting Forum, but they mostly only do quilts there and I could not have another internet forum to suck up my time!

Love your little runner...good to see you in the quilting...

Love the little Xmas trees Anna  Smiley I'm always on the look out for Xmas ideas.
The tiny frame with it's stone family is adorable too.

My fabric stash is now pretty much down to specific project fabrics  Shocked when or how that happened I just don't know & I am now re-stashing quilting fabric (although perhaps I shouldn't have said that here  Wink )
I am continuing to de-stash yarn & working on the Use What You Have Swap so I don't think I will be meeting any of the themes but then again I don't think I ever do  Roll Eyes

Yeah, me too! Texscrapper had pinned some with buttons (which I still want to make, so cute!) and had added something about beads, so I thought I might try that... The pebble family was a take on one of Watsonc7's pins, they got smaller and smaller until I had something that would fit in one of my frames... I made one for myself now that is even smaller, the frame is only about an inch square with a heart cut out. I like tiny!

I must get back to crafting. In order to get me in the crafting mood, I decided to straighten out and organize my supplies. That may have been a mistake! I thought I had been making progress with the de-stash, but I still have a LONG way to go!!! Back on the wagon again tomorrow!

Supplies from swaps immediately count as stash, right? Asking for a little pile of fabric here...

There is no fail or succeed, only trying (how's that for a reverse Yoda-ism).  We've all set our own de-stashing goals, so you can just switch your area of focus as needed rather than writing off an entire year.  Learning a new craft is awesome!  Soon you'll be able to count those supplies as stash too.  Grin
