Is there any way to sugar coat this week’s report? Probably not! Before you fall out of your chair and scream for your husband to come see that you’re doing better than someone (me!), 93 yards of my “added this week” came from Vicky and is designated to be used for donation quilts. The rest . . well, it was mostly 50% off sales but that’s it. Things are changing. . 2009 is coming.
The reason I’m adding in what Vicky gave me is because it will somewhat get mixed in with my stash and when used for donation quilts, I’ll just count the yardage for the whole quilt. So, technically, I didn’t “buy” these 93 yards but if I’m going to count them next year as “fabric used”, then I have to add them in, right? Even without the 93 yards, my stashbusting efforts in 2009 were pretty dismal. I can accept that and move forward.
If you haven’t made a commitment for your stashbusting plans in 2009, go here and see if it’s something you might want to do. So far, there are about 30 of us who are going to start off 2009 with big stashbusting plans. We’ll see how many are still posting reports at the end of 2009! You can do it .. we all can do it together. Sounds easy enough, right? Then why do I have this horrible stash report for this week? I’m sure there’s someone I can blame for this (besides Vicky . . she was being very nice to send me that fabric so I’m not blaming her and besides, I blame her for everything anyway!). It’s 3:30 a.m. and I’ve just finished a project so I can’t think of who should get blamed for my failure at stashbusting but you can bet I am not accepting responsibility. OK . . enough beating around the bush . . here’s the report.
Fabric added this week – 156-1/2 yards
Fabric added year to date – 633 yards
Fabric used this week – 8 yards
Fabric used year to date – 429 yards
Net Used to Date – <204> yards
Anyone want to share your stash report for this week. Go ahead . . put me to shame. But be ready to hit the deck running . . 2009 we start over with a fresh slate.
