It's hard to believe that this is the last stash report for the year. I have mixed feelings about that. This year certainly wasn't a stellar one in terms of busting stash, but I did do a good job of filling in some big holes in my stash with what I bought. My biggest disappointment is that I didn't use more fabric this year. December was a pretty lack luster month in terms of usage as you can tell from this week's report.
Used last week: 0.11 yards
Used in December: 1.03 yards
Used year to date: 33.45 yards
The low December numbers are a result of not counting any of the fabric used in the Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion mystery. I won't count that fabric until all the parts get made into blocks. At least it will give me a good start to 2015. But I failed miserably to meet my 2014 goal to use 75 yards of fabric. I've been tracking fabric usage since 2010. I used less fabric this year than I did in any of the previous 4. Which is sad considering 2013 was the best year I've ever had for fabric usage.
But there does seem to be a pattern doesn't there. Every good year seems to be followed by a poorer year. Hmm wonder if there is something to that. So maybe I can hope that 2015 will be better for stash usage than 2014 was.
Have you decided on stash busting goals for 2015? I'm still mulling over the results of this year. But since the New Year is only 3 days away, I'll have to come up with some quilty resolutions soon.
