It’s been going on for almost several years, but this challenge is a fantastic way to reduce our stashes.
We all tend to get stashes which are out of control. Sometimes our guilds have projects to reduce our stash of UFO’s, but sometimes we need some additional motivation.
Here’s one. If you take part in the challenge you can’t buy a new project until 10, 25, and 50 projects from your stash are complete. There is no time limit and you can set out what will be exceptions from the beginning.
Here’s an example of how I might do this. My exceptions will be models and gifts. Since most of my stitching is one of these two things, and I often neglect the projects for me, I think this will be an outstanding way to get something done for myself for a change.
Maybe I should do another challenge, to get stitched project finished into things. That would also reduce the stash.
