Before getting to the 2014 reset, I made one last foray into the quilt shops. I bought some sale fabric to use for quilt backs.
And then I added a few pieces to fill some gaps in the stash in hopes that I will be able to pull only from the stash next year.
The teal on the bottom is extra yardage for Celtic Solstice. It was the one fabric I forgot to buy extra yardage for when I purchased the rest. Hopefully, I'll be able to finish that project with what I have now.
My purchases did some significant damage to the stash report, but as it's the last one of the year, I'm looking for the next one to show a lot of zeros in the incoming category.
Used last week: 0.06 yards
Added last week: 26.92 yards
Used for 2013: 65.34 yards
Added for 2013: 312.75 yards
Net stashed: 247.41 yards.
I had hoped to see more out this week, but it's just been too busy with all the holiday prep and family visits. I hope that changes this afternoon.
This is the 4th year I've kept track of my stash. I used 5 yards more this year than in any previous year I've been keeping track. So that's a plus. In terms of building the stash, I added more than I would have liked. But compared to last year where I added almost 390 yards to the stash, keeping the increase to less than 250 yards is definitely a step in the right direction.
That's it for the last stash report of 2013. To see more of the same, check out all the links over at Patchwork Times.
