I'm a sucker for a good sewalong

Just a quick administrative note--I removed the Disqus, since I've had a few mentions of issues with commenting since I installed it. Plus I don't like that it won't let me see links to your blogs--I find a lot of new reading material through my comments! So I hope this resolves any issues. (I did lose a few of the more recent comments as a result, and I do apologize for that.)

So I'm sure you've all heard of the Stashbusting Sewalong going on over at Cation Designs by now.

I mean, ninja sewasaurus rex. How can one resist?


Since this one is fairly self-paced, I figured I might as well go for it.

"I, Becky, commit to using 6 pieces of stash fabric in 2013. I also commit to not buying any new fabric, other than interfacing/notions, things for the wedding, or absolutely necessary home dec fabric. In addition, I commit to evaluating my current stash and getting rid of the things that I honestly can't find a use for."

Obviously, I'm not going to even attempt the monthly challenges until The One Dress is done. But I figure that setting a goal of one project a month after the wedding is totally manageable, and if I bust more than that, awesome. I did need to give myself a loophole, since I don't entirely know yet what I may need to make for the house, and I actually did have to buy one more piece of fabric for wedding-related stuff this past week. 

As for the getting rid of stash, I'm already working on that. And for those of you who are still interested in acquiring fabric, you might be able to help me out! Stay tuned...

    1. Well, I figured that if the worst-case scenario happens and I can't do anything with this till July, I don't want to start completely in over my head! (Of course, if my pants-making plan works out, I'll probably bust 6 pieces right there, lol.)

  2. I still have to commit fully... I have to figure out how much, and to what extent, is most doable for me.

    1. And that's the trick, isn't it? It's so hard to balance wanting to do all the sewalongs and still do your own personal stuff.

  3. Oh yay! My browser (I mostly use Opera) doesn't work with Disqus, and I really think twice about opening a different browser just for commenting... ;)
    And isn't the idea of a stashbusting dinosaur just awesome? :D Six items sound plenty, what with the time you're spending on that incredibly detailed and fantastic wedding dress of yours.

    1. Yeah, after going back to this format, it sounds like it's much more trouble than it's worth to use the Disqus. And now I can click through to others' blogs again! Yay!

      And yes, the stashbusting dinosaur is awesome. :D
