I’m yet to really elaborate on any specific goals for the 2014. I’ve been giving it some thought and nothing really specific comes to mind – there isn’t a really a new skill such as knitting that I’d like to learn – I’m all good with the skill bank …for now. I’ve really narrowed down my goals to two broad areas #finishit2014 and stash busting.
“Use it or lose it” is an attitude I’m endeavouring to adopt this year. I want to own and store less stuff. I’m usually a less is more kind of person, it is time I started applying that to my fabric and yarn stashes.
The problem with stash busting is however, that sometimes one finds themself in the contradictory predicament of actually having to buy more material(s) in order to use stash up. It’s a quandary for sure. Take this dress above, which Ms. M only just tolerated me taking a photo of – fair enough there were better things to do, a fat quarter of the pink material with the little yellow turtles has been in my stash for many years but in order to use it up I
needed resorted to buying a metre of the lovely teal love heart fabric.
So, can you really call it stash busting if a metre of material is required to get rid of one fat quarter?
