Sunday Stash Report

I had another interesting week as far as the stash report goes, but I am sliding ever deeper into the hole. This week I bought 12 yards, which will go for borders and sashings on 3 different quilts. Also remember that I used a bunch of my Christmas fat quarters in the Theresa's Stars quilt, and that was the whole point, right, to use them up? Well, I was horrified at the prospect of not having a selection of Christmas fabrics for some future project, so I went out and bought another 4-1/2 yards of new fat quarters! I also bought 3 yards of a couple of tone on tones for strippies. On the up side, I cut up 10 yards for those 4 strippies I started on at Koleen's Sit and Sew on Halloween. Now I have to get busy and finish them!

Here's the Stash Manager's Report:

Fabric used this week: 10 yards
Fabric used year to date: 174-3/4 yards
Fabric added this week: 19-1/2 yards
Fabric added year to date: 330-7/8 yards
Net year to date: - 156-1/8 yards

Hi Sue

I find the concept of stash reports interesting. Is it hard to figure out what you use when you only take a single cut off a FQ? $10 a yard seems cheap to me when we pay $20 to $30 for quality, $10 to $20 for medium and occasionally $5 on super-sale. I definitely need to adopt the stash-busting mentality as I can barely move amongst the fabric boxes and forget what I have! Fabric is just such a pleasure to have and touch and look at! More calming than a glass of wine after work that's for sure! Thanks for visiting my blog!

Cheers, Shari
