Yesterday was a day of rest around this house. Drama Teen's stomach is still a bit tender, but she felt much better than she did on Friday. She spent most of her day on the couch in the living room watching The Food Channel. I ended up with a monster headache for the better part of the day. A bit of zoning out in the recliner and a few naps had it receding by evening, so I was able to get into the sewing room for a while.
Rather than sew, I ended up doing some cleaning up and reorganizing. Things had just been stuck on the shelves and tossed into corners, it was time to put some things up and clear up some space. It will be time to wrap Christmas presents once we get done with Thanksgiving and the sewing room doubles as gift wrap central in this house, hence a bit of extra space to store the gift wrap and ribbons is needed.
I did sew a bit. Which is a good thing for the stash report. As small as it was, without it there would have been nothing going out this week.
Used last week: 0.1 yards
Added last week: 0 yards
Used for 2012: 36.65 yards
Added for 2012: 325.38 yards
Net stashed for 2012: 288.73 yards
It's a good week, nothing came in.
As the year winds down, I've been trying to decide what I want to do about stash management for 2013. I'd like to focus more on how much I use rather than what I buy. Retirement is a few years in the future, but with it will come a definite need to cut back on expenses, so maybe adding to the stash now is not such a bad thing. Anyone have any prespective on that observation?
