January 15th, 2012 - The Stash

Well, it finally snowed. Whoopi! And as far as I’m concerned, it can now melt. It looks pretty and since the city uses salt on the roads ,my car needs washing and the entryways at my house are all messy. Who wants to wash their car in below zero weather! Your locks and doors freeze shut. I’ll have to wait until a nice sunny day and do it first thing in the morning.  Anyway on to the stash.

 I quilted 2 quilts this weekend and I’m hoping to get a 3rd done this week. On the 2 I have done, all that is left is the hand-sewing of the binding and I plan on doing that next week.  I need a stash of hand projects in the next couple of weeks because I’m going for surgery and won’t be doing much of anything after. Maybe I’ll leave my computer downstairs  so I won’t be tempted by any on-line sales. You know when you get bored you start browsing quilt shops on-line and next thing you know, you have a cart full of fabric. I better find some more hand projects. Back to the stash.  I managed to use a bit more of it and not add anything so I’m good. Here’s some numbers.

Fabric used this week: 3.49 yds

Fabric used YTD: 9.45 yds

abric added this week and YTD: 0 yds

Net fabric busted:9.45 yds

 Have a great week and I’ll be back in 2 weeks. See you then!

January 8th, 2012 - The Stash

Week 2 already! I didn’t post for Week 1 but like most of you, it was all zeros. Last year I ended up in the negatives for my net fabric busted but I’m hoping to change that this year.  I plan on not having such a big stash by the year end and buying only what I absolutely need. Right?! Anyway, I’ve managed to use a bit of fabric this week and it’s all looking good right now. I did purchase some fabric over the phone but I’m not counting it until it arrives.  Here are my numbers.

Fabric used this week: 5.98 yds

Fabric added this week: 0 yds

Net fabric busted: 5.98 yds

Now I need to cut out some backings for a couple of quilts and get busy quilting them. I hope to keep on using this stash up and have a better finish at the end of the year. Wish me luck!
