There comes a time when even the prettiest of fabrics or yarns are saved too many times and a small bag of scraps turns into several full of yarn boxes or baskets. Use some of these ideas for fun and quick stash buster projects while on vacation, or traveling to your vacation destiny (Authors are credited where names could be found).
No matter how much or little yarn you have, if there are more than a few left, you have a stash. There are dozens of projects out there on the Internet, but I picked out a few that I believe are the most useful. Like this phone wedge (pictured). It's crocheted (designed by Sher of Day Dreams) and comes in any color or combination of colors you desire. It's awesome as a stash buster and makes a super gift!
This sunny Kitchen Duo by Lori Zeller is a must for happy households. No need to worry about the right colors - have you seen the real colors of Gerbera Daisies? Color your world!! Make up several sets for weddings, showers, grads, new Dads or winter holidays.
Shower scrubbies are always a pleasurable gift to give yourself or someone else. Give a whole set with this Spa Set - Back Scrubber, Body Scrubber, Soap Holder, Wash Mit, Wash Cloth.
And finally, there's no reason to not make a few stress balls! The pattern by Abigail Gonzalez works up quickly and she gives great suggestions for uses.

There is a trend to pair the bobbin thread with it's mate on the spool or cone. It's not an issue until the pairing is done with rubber bands. The outcome on this is weakened areas where the rubber band is/was or broken thread while sewing or in the seam of the garment.
The effect is much the same as placing a needle in the thread to hold the needle....something that should not be developed as habit.
In the end, always best to do it right the first time. Short cuts are best left to clipping curves and corners.
Whichever method you use and choose to call it, remember I wish you success and inspiration in all you do, today and always!
