May 31st, 2009 - Stashbusting Week # 22

  I should learn how to add. I keep track of my stash busting on an Excel spreadsheet and I thought I actually busted 98 yds (net) of fabric. I thought ” Wow I’m almost at my goal of busting 100 yds”. And then I gave my head a shake and did the math correctly. Maybe in a few months or maybe years. So here goes the real truth….

Fabric added this week; 4 yds

Fabric added ytd: 72.28 yds

Fabric used this week: 2.54 yds

Fabric used ytd: 98.56 yds

Net fabric busted: 26.82 yds

Of the 4 yards I bought this week, 2 of them are for my sister. She wants to learn how to make the photo landscape wall hanging and the fabric is for the borders. She wants to make a few, I think. When I give it to her I will subtract that from my stuff. This week I am planning on making a blind for my bathroom anf 3 blinds for my Mom’s kitchen windows. That should reduce my stash a good deal. I am currently working on a BOM from Hearts to Holly in Charlevoix, MI. The shop has a few BOMs for this year but sadly I am not participating. I have 4 BOMs that are not finished and I didn’t want to start another until they are done. Such restraint on my part don’t you think? Well, I’m off to water the garden.

Until next time

    Those BOM’s are so addicting! I have a few in the UFO pile myself.

    You still have positive stash busted, so you’re doing just fine.
