Hard to believe it's November already. I'm not planning to give any quilts as gifts this year, so there is no pressure to be in the sewing room. I've had to get an earlier start on some holiday stuff as My Guy has a new project that will keep him away from home for two weeks this month and at least one, maybe two weeks next month. Hopefully getting an early start will allow me to fit in all the holiday stuff and manage to find time for the sewing room.
This week's stash report is better than last week's, but not by much.
Used last week: 0.73 yards
Added last week: 0 yards
Used for 2012: 36.45 yards
Added for 2012: 319.88 yards
Net stashed for 2012: 283.43 yards
My goal for the year was to use 75 yards of fabric. I'm probably not going to make that goal. In looking back at the last couple of years I finished a lot of quilts as part of my focus on getting quilts off the UFO list. Of course I did the "more complete" ones first. What was left on the list this year were the ones that only had one or two blocks completed. So they were almost like starting from scratch. I've started seven new quilts this year, but none of those got done either. Backings are the fastest way to use up yardage and I've just not needed to make that many this year. Hopefully all the quilts I started this year will help make next year a better one in terms of fabric usage.
I'm linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times.
