Stash Report Week 35

It's been a slow weekend here so far. Drama Teen is a bit traumatized after 3 weeks of high school, so she slept till 11 AM yesterday.  Going from a school of just 100 kids to one with at least 3 times that many has been a bit stressful on her.  Not to mention daily volleyball practice and all the homework. She's really good with her time management so far and hasn't yet had stay up till midnight working on homework as I've heard from some of the other volleyball mom's has been happening with their daughters.  She was definitely in a better mood after her extended sleep session, so it was apparently much needed.    

My Guy is still in Montana, but he is hoping to make it home today.  There was a medical emergency that put one of his crew in the hospital.  Thankfully it turned out to be nothing serious, but My Guy needed to stay until the individual was released from the hospital and cleared for travel.  My Guy's been gone for over 2 weeks.  DT and I are ready for him to be home. (He's ready to be home too!) 

I did some much needed deep cleaning yesterday morning and then spent the afternoon in the sewing room.  All five borders have been added to Mon Ami, which I'm sure will show up on tomorrow's design wall post.  Most of the outgoing stash was used in those borders.  

Used last week:  1.20 yards
Added last week:  0 yards

Used for 2013:  52.44 yards
Added for 2013:  148.83 yards

Net stashed for 2013:  96.39 yards

There were no additions to the stash in August.  I was so tempted to push a few buttons in response to some of the Labor Day sales on the Web.   However, I remembered my goal  to keep the net stashed below 100 yards for this year.  So I emptied my cart and deleted all those sales emails.  

That's it for my stash report this week.  I'm linking up with Patchwork Times.  Check out all the other tales of the stash posted there.

Way to go on resisting all those sales! I get all the emails too, and they make it so tempting to buy more fabric. Can't wait to see Mon Ami tomorrow.

Way to stay under 100 yards. Why does this sound so much like dieting? So easy to add, but so difficult to lose?

Good for you! I need to follow your resolution.

Melanie said...

what great resistance you have! I've pushed a few buttons myself this weekend and will probably go on a fabric diet soon. :)

Teehee--I'll send you some COUPONS! No--you have a good plan. I hope to keep stash and usage within 50 yards of each other.

The school my grandson attends has a studen population of almost 900 students, he is lucky to be in an advanced class otherwise he might have been overlooked. I have been so good finishing my UFO's this year, but I'm about to break out and purchase a stack of fabrics. My quilt group are going on a bus tour and I have been saving the dollars to shop big.

Such self-control! But I'm sure you feel better knowing you didn't cave in!
