Happy New Year!
I've packed up Christmas and made some room for new projects and new plans. I can't help but feel refreshed around the new year, a blank slate, if you will. After the rush of making gifts, seeing family and friends, and all the extra events around the holidays, I look forward to the relative quiet of winter. I seem to always have a wave of new ideas and a renewed energy for seeing them to fruition. As a matter of fact, I've decided on a little stash busting challenge for myself.
This is my problem, well...part of it. (Not pictured, my yarn and weaving cone stash)
The solution...Stash to Treasure!
When I started thinking about this challenge I had big plans. Every week I would finish a sewing, knitting and weaving project! My stash would be gone in no time! It's perfect! Then, because I am attempting to be a grown up and slightly more realistic, I decided maybe a sewing, knitting and weaving project every month. That still might be a little unrealistic but I'm willing to give it a try. I'm also not going to impose any unrealistic edicts like, "Though Shall Not buy Yarn!" I work at a yarn store. It's impossible not to buy yarn. What I would like to do is use some of the random yarn in my stash to come up with some new projects, try some interesting sewing projects and weave up some new home-goods.
So, stay tuned for the Stash to Treasure posts and feel free to remind me, gently, if possible, of my stash challenge. May the new year be full of wonderful projects!
(Lest you think I left my auxiliary studio a mess, it's all put away, waiting to be chosen for the first project!)
