Only 7 days till Christmas! Only 14 days till the new year! I'm looking forward to the holidays. I'm on vacation the next 2 weeks, so will have time to do a little baking, a lot of gift wrapping and maybe some sewing. After Christmas I should be able to do a lot of sewing.
This week was hectic, which has been a pretty constant theme with me since about mid November. Consequently, it was another week with very little sewing going on. Even so, there was still a bit going out this week.
Used this week: 0.25 yards
Added this week: 0 yards
Used year to date: 53.58 yards
Add year to date: 70.12 yards
Net stashed for 2011: 16.54 yards
I'm still working on the borders for the Geisha quilt, those should be done today. Then the top will get wrapped up for Christmas. The purple and yellow quilt just needs borders, which I hope to get to after Christmas, then I can assemble it's back. So I have a slim chance of making it back to the black before the end of the year.
Have you started thinking about your 2012 stash management goals? I don't think I want to do another year of limiting my purchases, though I don't know that 70 yards is limiting. I'm thinking a focus on using more would be a better way to approach my stash. I'll be giving that some thought over the next couple of weeks.
That's it for me this week. For more dashing through the stash, check out Patchwork Times.
