Stash Report for Week 44 of 2016

Wow, just one more day in October.  It always seems like the last part of the year goes a lot faster than the first part of the year.  Supposedly we've fixed how long a second is, but it sure doesn't seem that way by the time October rolls around.  I'm not ready for the holiday season and it's just about here! 

For some reason, it was just hard to get into the sewing room this week.  I didn't do so hot on making time to stitch. 

Days in the sewing room this week:  4 out of 7 days
Days in October 25 out of 29 days
Days in 2016: 240 out of 303 days

Thankfully I spent all of last Sunday in the sewing room or the stash report would be pretty anemic.  

Used last week:  0.85 yards
Used year to date:  50.62 yards
Added year to date:  47.59 yards
Net used in 2016:  3.03 yards

Whoohoo on 50 yards out for the year!  I've only surpassed that mark twice in the last 7 years.  Not sure I'll have a record year for stash usage, but I'll be close.  So that's good news for this year.  Plus I've managed to stay in the black for most of the year.  So I'm pretty happy with my stash busting efforts for 2016.

I'm linking up with Patchwork Times for this weeks stash report.   Signing off on this week's stash report with a shot of yesterday's sunrise.  The light this time of year is so pretty.

Congrats on staying in the black on stash busting. What an awesome photo. Where are you located that they are that fantastic. I don't think I've ever seen a sky that orange in the morning.

its great to be in the black isn't it. I love using up my stash. I bought a whole heap of stuff in August on a trip to The GOld Coast and have been making a concerted effort this trip (we are away for 5 weeks and yes I take my machine travelling with me) to use that fabric. I have made some headway which is beaut. Your photo is beautiful. I am in Australia but most of my blog readers are from the USA and I have specific requests to post nature shots. So... when I don't have projects to photograph I put up a photo of where I am or I've been
