Stash Report - October 31st

I'm back on the NO FABRIC wagon again, trying hard to stick to my guns about not buying any new fabric until next year!  I'm also trying to start some new projects to use some stash, but we've been so busy on weekends this month that I haven't had time to putter much in my sewing room.   So for this week the stash report shows a little out and none in: 

Used this week =  0.4 yards
Added this week = 0 yards
Used Year to Date = 36.1 yards
Added Year to Date = 356 yards
Net Used for 2010 = (320.0) yards

Moving very slowly in the right direction.  The 2008 BOM quilt only needs one last set of borders.   But I'm behind in my 2010 BOM projects, I really need to get those blocks done.  Right now next weekend looks completely clear, so I may have my own quilt retreat.  It will be my last chance before I have to get serious about holiday stuff. Maybe with that block of time, I'll have a chance to start a new project! 

Check out Judy's Patchwork Times to see the wondrous stash busting going on globally.

Well, as you said, you're moving in the right direction. Way to go!

I know I couldn't stick with NO new fabric till next year but I am going to try and get VERY little unless it is a great sale (lol) on backing fabrics as I use so much for my craft show items.

Blogger ate my comment and it was awesome.

I said (words to the effect of ) If you commit to not buying anything between now and New year I'll do it too. I keep saying I will and dont. 12 charm packs in one week was a bit OTT though.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping you make it into the sewing room next weekend Kate.

And zero added for the week is an achievement. Well done.

You can add me to the no buying until January 2011. Wait, no, don't b/c I am going to Houston Friday and that would be torture. But add me after Houston - next week. Have a great personal retreat! Invite a few blogging friends and make it a virtual retreat complete with c and c.

It's the right direction - that's important! I am also thinking of the "add nothing til the end of the year" approach.

Progress is better than perfection. If you were perfect at busting, it would be no fun to read about your progress!
