Stash Report Week 52A

I decided on Sunday that I was going to do a stash report in the middle of the week for the last few days of 2009. I didn't want to start 2010 with a big red number and I remembered that I did the same with 2009 - I didn't report the very end of 2008 on the first 2009 report.

So.... Sunday, I went shopping at the sale at Best Friends. I spent the gift certificate from the shop and the Christmas check from my granpa and granma. I still had to spend a little from my own account, but that was fine by me! I bought 30 yards of mostly neutrals! All were at least 20% off and most were 40 or 50% off! Woo hoo!

I have plans for scrap quilts, but realized that I needed more neutrals to help with the backgrounds. Quilts must have a place to rest the eye after all!

I also cut up some fabric for a couple of new quilts that I wanted to start before the end of the year. That used 3.8 yards.

Fabric added this week: 30.90
Fabric added year-to-date: 383.65

Fabric used this week: 3.80
Fabric used year-to-date: 205.44

Net Fabric Used: -178.21 - Next year, this number will be +100 at least!!

Now, I'm off to bed!

Very pretty and at such a good deal! Yes, you always need those neutrals for a good scrap quilt. Great job on all of the fabric you used in 2009!

Love your neutrals! I always run low on neutrals! So when I do find them on sale, I always try to pick up some to add to the stash!
