    Stash Busting 2019 - I WILL use my mountains of craft stash before buying more! 28th Dec 18 at 10:19 AM
    Hi everyone I'm back and raring to go with my stash busting challenge in 2019

    The challenge is simple. From 1st January 2019 you are not allowed to buy any new craft supplies until you have used what you have (adhesives or items for orders are allowed) but of course nobody is going to hurt you if you happen to fall off into the dark (or pretty paper) side for a bit

    My aim for 2019 is to make 2019 items from my stash

    This thread is a great motivation to me and hopefully others so I'd love for you to join me on the journey.

    Let me know what your targets are and I'll add you to challenge.

    Can't wait to hear how we all get on

    Nimbo, curtains are good for getting long with your neighbours!

    Re craft stuff, I have started cutting out hexagons from my stash of leftover jeans material so I can make a picnic rug. Made 42 so far, think I'm going to need a whole lot more...

    As my mum would have said, it seemed like a good idea at the time

    It’s a good start and it’ll keep you busy for while.

    I want to buy more of the throws. So I can cover the backs of three of my sofa cushions that have red on them.

    I could also decorate a lampshade. If I can find a basic one I like. Yay.

    I desperately need to sort out the craft room. It’s staring to look super messy as I’ve just stacked everything in it.
