Most of my larger fabric pieces were from my clothing sewing days...I have to decide if I am going to make what I originally planned or repurpose this fabric...many were purchased in foreign countries and some were inherited from my cousin, who was a dressmaker in Japan...she made clothing for women who had a $1m budget each year for clothing, so the fabrics are a little bit pricey...hard to give up, but worth nothing sitting in a box...

I'm salivating at the idea of your stash! And I totally understand... hard to give up, but deserves to not be in a box. It can be a good deal of effort, but it does feel nice when you can find just the right "benefactor" for this type of stash. Good luck with that!  Wink After I typed that, I realized you probably had a link to your pinterest in your signature so I clicked through and even though I already followed you I perused your boards! Why does it feel creepy to say this? It's not! It's not creepy!  Cheesy

Maybe I can bust out some lined/reversible shopping totes or something. UGH! It's the trick of finding something that we might need or at least use or that I think someone would actually want as a gift, not just a thing to fill the slot in the gift category, ya' know?

I finished a lingering project! The flashcards have been around long enough that they were quickly becoming stash, the scrapbook papers were stash-stash, the various white finishes on the frames are stash. I did buy the frames just a few days ago specifically for this as none of the frames in my stash worked at all, but at least I didn't buy any to ADD to the stash, right?

What a lovely set of new items for your laundry room!  That is another stash I seem to have...lots and lots of picture frames...I have painted some and repurposed them...guess I will frame items that I, too, have been meaning to do...but, after a while, there is no place to hang things...I already have six mirrors I need to find new homes for...nothing I can ship since many are huge and antique...

lol MistressT...someday I will have to tell you the story of bringing back one of my pieces from Japan...let me just say that a well placed decimal got it through US customs... ha ha ha...but, you are right...giving it to someone who might make better use of the fabric than me would be a better fate...

What is it about mirrors? I walk around most of the time looking like a yoga-pants hobo, but we got mirrors all up in this piece! Probably because they are so much easier to coordinate in a space.

I like them because they reflect light and a lot of things I like...I am also a casual slob, but, I know I also have a healthy dose of insecure vanity...I like looking at myself...it is like watching a movie that is still being written every single day...I don't know...maybe a mirror is a way for me to know I really exist...deep...lol...

I am 1/4 of the way done with my green destash!!!  I don't know if I will finish before the end of the month, but at least I broke out the yarn...already bored, so I will work on it later...I am planning on starting new things while finishing WIPs...one for one...

Cute T, adorable Smiley.

All this cutting is for the first octopus. It's enormous, I can't seem to fill it no matter how many sweaters I cut up. I've been at it for days, I've had to wear a respirator from all the fluff.



Still got 2 full bins left but no way am I making another octo. My knuckles are a scabby mess from all the scissor work so far.

This can be one of your crafting "foxhole" stories. Oof! I commend you - I would NEVER have cut the filling so small, regardless of obvious benefits.

I'm working on a couple of things right now.  One is my third scrap tiered patch work skirt.  The first one was a rainbow, I had to buy a little fabric for that, the second was all black and from leftover pieces, yes I had that many different black scraps, and this one is black and purple, because yes, I still had that many different black scraps!  After all that, I've nearly consolidated all my scraps into one place.  I think if I make a red one, I'll be able to put everything that's left in the same drawer!

The other project is a top from some cut stretch velvet (also black!) that I've had for several years and finally found something I think will work to line a semi-transparent knit shirt!

Ashling...you know, I never even thought of a one color scrap skirt...I imagine it would be so interesting since there is no such thing as one kind of black...can't wait to see ...I also have a lot of black scraps (a bin at least!)...I am cutting out red, white and black pieces to make a quilt...I believe I need something like 444 pieces of each...lol...
