Thailand - go!

Just a quicky, off to Thailand tonight! (well, technically the wee hours of tomorrow morning)

Super jazzed to be traveling again, I wish I was brave enough to take the plunge and travel all the time!

But then, how would I sew?

When I get back, I'm hoping to squeeze LOTS of sewing (and actually posting) in! I'm also going to try to actually comment on all the lovely blogs I follow, so we'll see how this goes!

Country Regency pics

Oh man, life has been busy! A lot of General Life things going on, still, which I will eventually get around to talking about, depending on what comes to fruition!

Anyway, one of the Life Things is cleaning up, going through my closet and soon my fabric stash. So I had some costumes out and steamed them to take pictures, and I realized my country Regency dress was still hanging out on my mannequin, waiting for me to put closures in. So I took some pics of it!

I made this dress for a tea in late June,  it's the same one I talked about working on in May and June.

Destashing musing

July was hectic! As such, I didn’t make ANYTHING new. Not even a cute bag or crafty thing.

In between crazy life things, I really need to buckle down and purge things.

So I’m trying to figure out the best way to do this :/
I’m not sure if I should go through my WIP stuff, and finish or toss, and just get that out of the way first?
Or go through my fabrics and purge what’s realistically not going to be used.

The latter is super hard because I see all these cute things people recycle fabric for. But figuring out what I’m *actually* going to get around to is the hard part!

So maybe go through… and assign things. And then go through everything unassigned and decide from there?

How do other people deal with their stashes?
