I won't get the stash used up as much as I wanted. Mainly because I have lots of spring and summer clothing. I only need (well actually want) a couple pairs of shorts, and perhaps another pair of capris.

Actually, I've been dipping into the large-scrap portion of the stash to make face masks. Biggest challenge has been finding non-flowery material for DH's masks.

I used up some previously cut strips and about 110 4" squares of denim.

Still using up bits and bobs of cotton fabric to make masks. I found some more smaller remnants and will wash those today. I figure if I can make each of us another 7 masks, with those we already have we should be set for whatever comes.

Used up the more masculine fabrics I had cutting out masks for the men. Now I found some feminine type colours and patterns so will pre treat that fabric and cut me out a few masks. This mask making is sure getting me to hunt through my larger scraps to find suitable fabrics. I will be getting rid of lots of bits and pieces over this.

Also found a pattern on line for oven mitts and since I need a new pair I just may have a way of getting more fabric out of my stash.

Finished a pair of shorts and a dress (well almost finished the dress) this week which used up some of the larger remnants in my stash.

I found some more feminine cotton fabric and will be using it up cutting out some masks for me today.

Used up a great deal of the fabric stash making masks, mostly for family. I have another quilt pinned and hope to finish that off as well. Used more denim squares for this one as well.

Hopefully I can use a bit more up making items over the next few months as Christmas gifts.
