Stash Report - Week 18

It's cold wet and rainy, so yesterday was a good day to spend some time in the sewing room.  Actually, it's been pretty much cold and wet most of the last week.  We actually had snow flakes coming down Thursday night.  It's been such a weird spring for us.  We really needed the rain, the last two years we've had drought conditions.  So I'm glad to see the rain, but I do wish it would warm up a bit.  My winter coat is more than ready to be retired for the season.  

I've been able to get in a solid hour of stitching most nights this week.  Sweet Treats needed a back before it could be shipped off for quilting.  That made up the bulk of the out column this week.

Used last week:  5.48 yards
Added last week:  0 yards

Used for 2013: 37.91 yards
Added for 2013:  79.25 yards

Net stashed for 2013:  41.34 yards

At least my amount stashed isn't much bigger than my amount used. This has actually been a pretty good year for me, less than 100 yards in total and almost 40 yards out at just about midyear.  I've definitely been in worse shape by this point.  So even though I'm not meeting my goals, it's still been a good year in terms of stash management.

Using your fabrics is a good. It takes purchases most time to use what you have already. I find this lots of times. Make a few large quilts and you'll get your numbers in the BLACK real quick. Hope your weather changes soon. Sandi

Fabric is wonderful to hold and fondle. Don, t fell bad about not using up too much. I get pleasure just from looking at the colors.

Last year I looked through my stash and wondered why I had bought some of the fabrics in it, so I had a clean out and sold a lot at a table sale at my quilt group. The new Years resolution was to finish everything in the cupboard, not to buy any more fabric until this was done.
