Stash Report - December 9th

What a week!  I love holiday cheer, but we may have gone overboard this last week.  We weren't home any evenings this week between holiday shopping and other social events.  Drama Teen's first club volleyball tournament was yesterday, so we were gone most of the day.  While we were at dinner, she started cramping so badly we almost took her straight to the emergency room rather than home.  Thankfully the cramps eased up on their own in about an hour.  Once she was settled, I had to get busy with laundry as My Guy is on the road again this week and needed a few things washed so he could finish packing.  I'm very hopeful that this week will be somewhat slower.   In fact, I've decided to hide in my sewing room for most of today.  I need the sanity break! 

The stash report is still going in the wrong direction.  Nothing out this week as any thoughts of making to my sewing room were mere dreams this week.  However, I did push some buttons last week and bought some more fabric on sale.  However all of this fabric is designated for a couple of projects.

The blue is a likely background for next year's Rainbow Scrap quilt (sometimes you have to buy a little to use a little) and the oranges are for an Oklahoma State quilt that's on the list as a gift for one of Drama Teen's teachers. 

So how much damage to the stash?  At this point it's not even noticeable. 

Used last week:  0 yards
Added last week:  9 yards

Used for 2012:  37.19 yards
Added for 2012:  378.88 yards

Net stashed for 2012:  341.69 yards

At this point, I've quit worrying about the in/out balance.  Hopefully next year will be a bit more equal.

You will have a great selection of fabrics to pick from new year when you make a quilt. What a blessing that you were able to add so much fabric. I think of my fabric collection s my 401K for retirement.

Yes indeed sometimes a purchase is a necessary thing. You should be set for all next year! Have fun in your sewing room today.

Glad DT is home and seems OK?

Very pretty fabrics you've added to your stash!
