So how does the stash report look this week taking into account my acquisitions? Here are the numbers:
Used this week: 0.19 yards
Added this week: 5.5 yards
Used year to date: 9.5 yards
Added year to date: 7 yards
Net Used for 2011: 2.5 yards
Fabric Budget: 10 yards for Jan to March
Bought/Budget: 7/10 yards
So I'm still in the black and still under my fabric budget. So I'm still on track with my stash management goals. I do need to learn to keep fabric swatches with me. I think the green fabric is going to work, but I think the blue is going to be too bright to use in the Buck-a-Block quilt. Based on an analysis of my buying habits last year, I don't take fabric swatches with me on shopping trips and end up bringing home yardage that won't work for the intended project. This time it's OK, my stash is really deficient in blender fabrics, so the blue is probably a good idea anyway.
That's it for me this week. Check out Patchwork Times to see how others are managing their stashes.
