It's been a slow weekend. We've been munching on left overs from Thanksgiving. It's been too cold and wet to venture out much, so we haven't. One problem with not venturing out is then it's easy to spend more time on the computer where all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales keep popping up in my email.
Someone trying hard to stay on a fabric diet doesn't need the temptation. And sure enough I did give into the temptation and ordered some fabric from the 25% sale at The Fat Quarter Shop. Though I don't feel too badly about that purchase because it's the background fabric for one of the graduation quilts that's in the plans for next year. I was going to need to purchase it anyway, so why not get it on sale.
The damage done by my Black Friday weakness won't hit the stash report until next week at the earliest, so for now the report looks pretty good.
Used last week: 0.55 yards
Used in November: 4.86 yards
Used year to date: 43.65 yards
Purchased year to date: 24.25 yards
Net Used for 2015: 19.40 yards
I'm still in the black. I'm hoping to get one more backing made this year, so that should make up for the purchase of the background fabric. As long as I end using more than I've bought, it will be a good year.
