The stash busting goal is also on track. No fabric in for the month of January. The last time I went a month with no fabric purchases was mid 2013. So though my outgoing isn't anything to crow about, I'm at least in the black with more out than in so far for 2015.
Used last week: 0.37 yards
Used in January: 2.61 yards
The one goal I'm most remorseful about is not finishing up a UFO in January. All the blocks of the 2014 Rainbow Scrap Sampler quilt have been sashed together, but I decided to replace my normal strip borders with a pieced border and that's taking a lot longer. Finishing a quilt a month is really unrealistic for me, as how much sewing time I can get in is really unpredictable, family and work both have prior claims. But for some reason, the failure to meet a January deadline is really bothering me. The plan was to use A Lovely Year of Finishes to help motivate me to work on the UFOs, but the requirement of that quilt along is that you finish the project. Not always a realistic goal for my projects. So rather than be frustrated because of that quilt along, I'm just going to accept that UFOs will be completed on whatever pace I can manage and just focus on making progress on that list.
Maybe my motivation ought to be reducing the height of the "in use stash" pile.
This is just the yardage that's called for in my UFOs and WIPs, not the scraps and fat quarters that have been set aside.
I wonder how much yardage is in that 18"?
Linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times. Then I hope to start working on shortening that stack some.
