Stash Report - Week 42 of 2013

Judy at Patchwork Times so helpfully pointed out that we only have 10 weeks in the year.  That's a bit mind numbing.  Are we really that close to the end of 2013?  We had our first freeze this weekend.  The colder temperatures and the change in light as the sun sets are the biggest indicators that fall is here, as the leaves on the trees are still green for the most part.  But the hay's been baled and the cloudless skies of summer have given way to the pink, purple and blue clouds so typical of autumn here.   

It's so pretty outside that it would be hard to get in stitching time in the evening if it wasn't for the fact it does get dark a lot earlier now.  Last week was pretty productive.  I finished the Economy Blocks for the 4th border on Back to Square One and a few other odds and ends this week.  So happily there is a bit to report as going out.  

 Used last week:  0.69 yards
Added last week: 0 yards

Used for 2013: 60.07
Added for 2013: 157.83 yards

Net stashed for 2013:  97.76 yards

Even better is that this week's report shows I've broken my personal record for fabric usage in one year.  In 2011, I used 60.01 yards.  I'm just a bit above that now.  But, we've still got 10 weeks in the year, I can probably add another yard or two to that record before we get to 2014.  I've already celebrated this achievement.  How?   By buying more fabric of course.  Next next couple of weeks are going to be a bit painful when it comes to reporting the "added" numbers.  

That's it on the state of my stash.  I'm going to grab a cup of hot chocolate and check out all the other reports posted over at Patchwork Times.

Love that photo! I don't do a stash report but think you shouldn't fail to celebrate all the beautiful quilts you've finished with those yards :)
