"I've never met a crafter without a stash of some kind. This year my goal is to use up all the craft supplies I have spent money on that are taking up mental and physical space in my life. Join me here every Thursday for a Stash Bash."I've been doing some crazy stash bashing this week, again with 12" afghan squares. I made my 4th (or 5th, not really sure) Drop in the Bucket square just because I love it so much, and the possibilities of color combinations is immense. This one I did with sky blue, purple, and a marled yarn. I love it!
I've also been "raiding" the free squares from Melinda Miller, and More V's Please was my choice of the day. (I've completed several more of this square, as I like its lacy yet solid design)
I've wanted to use some motifs from Edie Eckman's Beyond the Square book, and this was the result:
I'm hoping that once I sew everything together, it'll straighten out.
I also did a set of 6" blocks, using the Grandala pattern and the BAMCAL's Feb 6" Love & Honor-- the fourth square is a simple granny square, as I didnt like the Love & Honor square so much.
These are only a few of the squares I've been hooking as part of my stash bashing. I've also decided to do 40 days of squares for Lent, and donate the resulting afghan(s) to a local charity (TBD). Besides the squares pictured here, I've hooked another Versailles square, a design that I have blogged about before. The March squares for the BAMCAL have been posted, so I'm sure you'll see those in future stash bashes.
Hopefully next week I'll have a few different things to share in the stash bash- I hope I've given some ideas on how to destash :)
