Happy day after Christmas! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. My family definitely did. I've pretty much eaten my way through Christmas and across two states. Oh well, that's what New Year's resolutions are for!
I'm not ready for the last stash report of 2010. Not much sewing last week since I had Christmas stuff to finish up. My cutting table is covered with gift tags, ribbons, bows and paper rather than fabric. I did get a bit done before I had to get serious on the gift wrapping. So here's the final report:
Used this Week = 0.62 yards
Added this Week = 0 yards
Used year to Date = 48.4 yards
Added year to Date = 356 yards
Net Used for 2010 = (307.7) yards
I didn't make my revised goal of using 50 yards, but I was only a little over a yard and a half short. However, my stint on the NO FABRIC wagon continued. This completes 9 weeks of no fabric purchases! So I did make that goal. So over all, not too bad on meeting my revised goals. I failed miserably on meeting my original goal of using more fabric than I buy. I would like to use more than I buy next year, so I'm going to have to come up with some strategies to guide my fabric purchases. I'm considering a number of different approaches, a fabric budget (maybe tied to how much sewing I do), drawing up a fabric buying plan and limiting purchases to just that list. Any other suggestions on things that have worked for you or things you are going to try?
