Week 40 Stash Report

This past week, I worked on a lot of hand sewing. I have 2 hanging sleeves to get on quilts and binding to finish on one of them. I made the sleeves on Monday night and spent some evenings working on stitching them down. I am almost done with one! This only used up a half yard of fabric.

Yesterday, I worked at the shop. I had been making a mental list of fabric that I would need to start and finish some projects. I worked with Barb and discussed options for a commission quilt that I have coming up and we decided on the sashing, cornerstones, border and backing so I picked all of that up along with a couple of fabrics to use in the blocks. Now, I just have to pick the blocks and start making them!


I also picked up the last quarter of fabric for the 2009 Thimbleberries quilt and the backing fabric. Now, I will have everything that I need to finish the top when I find the time.


But all of this made for a lousy week for the stash report....

Fabric added this week: 17.44
Fabric added year-to-date: 288.70

Fabric used this week: 0.50
Fabric used year-to-date: 161.05

Net Fabric Used: -127.65

I just don't know what to say. 12 more weeks. That's 3 months left in the year. I wonder if I can at least end at a negative 50 yards. That would mean just 50 more yards purchased than used. I could live with that since this is the first year I've reported. Yeah, that just might be doable... Or not....

Well, at least it gives you a goal for next year!
