Use it or lose it

I went into my craft room the other day, all ready to be inspired to create ... and then the mess and clutter hit me. I have so much stuff in there, it actually had the opposite effect and I just walked out again :(

I think the problem is that I have so many tools and supplies for so many different projects (and different crafts) that I feel guilty that I haven't used them all. I know some (most?) people loooove having a stash but I'm finding mine is like a weight sitting on my shoulders. So I decided to "use it or lose it"!

First I'm going to get rid of all the old jumpers I've collected which were to be either felted and made into something or frogged so I could use the yarn.

First item to be used was a colourwork shetland jumper that I tried to frog for the yarn but it was too fragile. So I felted it and made Sooty a new coat and Samson a new cushion.

VoilĂ !
