Stash Report? Me? Why not?

I'm jumping on this bandwagon. I have bought and bought and bought fabric. Now, I need to use it. I need to hold myself more accountable for all the fabric I'm bringing into this house. So...here we go.....

Used this week: 13.0 yards
Used year to date: 13.0 yards
Added this week: 0.00 yards
Added year to date: 0.00 yards
Net Used 2010: 13.0 yards.

Ok...well....that was easy. ONLY because I didn't buy any fabric this week, cause I went insane prior to Christmas and bought a boatload. Ok...only about 50 or 60 yards. (hanging head)...and some thread. I stocked up on thread for the next six-twelve months. I had to have it since I have all this fabric, right? Ok....I know it's a no-guilt kinda stash reporting thing...but I've been very very bad about how much fabric I buy. 2010 is the year of using, not buying every thing I see. I feel good about this. Really, I do.

Happy Quilting Ya'll!

OH!! You made me laugh!! I could not imagaine buying 50-60 yrd of fabric at one time!! Okay, let me re-phrase that, at a sale, oh yeah!! But the idea of bringing it home - I would just be overwhelmed.... then again.... once I get the UFO's under comtrol... oh yeah, I could see it!!!

here is to you and your plans to use what you've got!!!! I am going to enjoy seeing what you do this year!!! thanks for the smile!!

What kind of fabric did you buy? Now when you use it all up it will look good on your stash report.

Add me to that list of keeping track in 2010! We'll keep each other honest and accountable.

Good luck with the stashbusting! I'm sure you'll have lots of finishes this year. I'm hoping to do a month at a time, but we'll see.

Jen said...

One I you are killing me!! But, I don't have enough fabric to consider stash busting so I'll just giggle at you from across the lake.

I've been thinking about joining in this year and debating with myself about it. Your post and encouragement is convincing me that it's time. I don't know whether to thank you or slap you silly! ;-)

I SO need to hold myself accountable!! If they would just stop making new Batiks I would be just fine...there...that is my reasoning! LOL
