After living out of boxes, in two countries, with belongings in garages, storage units and attics I have learned the importance of 'the clear out'. That being said I am a not one to throw things out so I am now making a concerted effort to create projects with scraps, with all the things that are in the house. I am limiting ALL new purchases in the craft department until I have made my way through current stock piles. Notice how I used the word limit and not stop, I am not an idiot.
This is also the ideal time to make use of those projects that never were projects. The embroidery I used here started life as a sample. I am obsessed with all things Japanese and wanted to practice some sashiko stitches. As yet this practice did not turn into a larger project and I did not want to throw out my hard work, it would be such a waste.
Try and challenge yourself to create projects with the things you already have lying around.
