The second week of January was a busy one. It was back to work for me. Boy was it hard to get back in the groove after 2 weeks off. Monday was a company holiday, so I was still lounging at home. I did get some sewing done Monday afternoon, but that was about it for the week. Yesterday, kiddo had two basketball games, plus it was her birthday. Not much time to get up to the sewing room. So here's the stash status for week 2:
Used this week: 0.28 yards
Added this week: 0 yards
Used year to date: 1.06 yards
Added year to date: 0 yards
Net used for 2011: 1.06 yards
Fabric Budget: 10 yards
Bought/Budget: 0/10 yards
One of my 2011 quilting goals was to set up and stick to a fabric budget. My budget is 10 yards per quarter. I'm going to add that to my stash report each week. It took weekly reporting of the yardage purchased to make me really notice how much I had bought. It's easy to just type the numbers in the spreadsheet, having to report those numbers on the blog made me much more conscious of my habits. Maybe weekly reporting will help me stick to the fabric budget.
So at the end of week 2, I'm still in the black. I doubt I get much sewing done this week. Kiddo has a swim meet today, basketball games on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. However, we are supposed to get snow starting this afternoon. That may change the schedule somewhat.
Hope your stash management for 2011 is on track. To check out how week 2 went, hop over to Judy's Patchwork Times.
