Stash Report - November 27th

Wow!  As Judy points out, it's the last weekend in November.   Only four more weeks in 2011!  I'm always amazed at how quickly those last few weeks go.  Must have something to do with all the shopping and wrapping that gets added to the schedule this time of year. 

I missed last week's report because of Kiddo's swim meet.  But since I was away on business for most of that week, it wouldn't have been a great report anyway.  On to this week's report.  For the first time in 13 weeks, I've added fabric to the stash.  I won a Fairy Frost charm pack from Konda of Moose on the Porch Quilts as part of her Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along

Thank you Konda.  I love wide spectrum of colors in this pack.

Not sure what I'm going to make with this one, but I'm sure I find something.  I'd really like to try mixing all these colors with black.  Probably a project for next year. 

I did manage to get some sewing done this week before we started the Thanksgiving visit with family.  So there is a little out to balance out the little in. 

Used this week:  0.82 yards
Added this week:  0.87 yards

Used year to date:  51.86 yards
Added year to date:  61.12 yards

Net stashed for 2011: 9.26 yards

I almost broke even for the week, so not too big of a set back.  Plus I'm still under 10 yards stashed for the year, which compared to last year is terrific!  Not sure I'll get back into the black over the next 4 weeks, but I'm going to try.  My stash management goal for this year was just to use more than I bought. 

How's your stash management going?   Good luck to all the bloggers linking in with Judy over at Patchwork Times on meeting their stash management objectives.

What a pretty pack of charms! Congrats on your win. I'm so impressed with your goals this year. It's made me realize I need to look at my stash in a more productive manner. ☺ Happy Sunday!

Congrats on the charms! I adore Fairy Frost and have a slightly indecent stash of them. Good job still being under 10 yards! I think at this rate, the best I can hope for is to do better next year.

Pretty winnings and you are so close to breaking even, so I hope you make it.

I've just discovered the beauty of fairy frost so I was pretty excited to see it comes in charm packs!

I wouldnt have counted it as stash because you won it...

I keep meaning to say - I love your current header. It screams Christmas and makes me smile every time I pop in.
