Week 7 Stash Report

Hey . . don’t forget next weekend is a Quiltathon.

Another week where I have nothing to report.  Didn’t buy anything; didn’t use anything.  I piddled around with fabric, started a couple of projects but finished nothing or got far enough to call it reportable.  So much for getting to 100 yards this week . . maybe next week.

Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 0 yards

Fabric Used this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Used Year to Date: 94.75 yards

Want to share your report?  There’s a lot of fabric being used by this group; some additions along the way but everyone is doing a great job keeping up with the reporting.  I love reading your reports and from what I hear from others, many look forward to these reports.

    Actually got a couple projects completed this week – since they were already in process I can’t really say them impacted my stash – except for the border fabric I added this week for one. But it felt great to get stuff done.

    I really need to focus on arranging my sewing room because I’m still hunting around and through boxes and bins to find things… and finding more stuff I forgot I had!

    I posted my link. I decided to see what those who have already posted their links have done. Ya’ll are just amazing. If I check out different blogs each week maybe I will get to see eveyrone’s blog by the end of the year.
    Thanks so much for doing this challenge for us Judy. I get inspired to use from my stash by the volume of fabric ya’ll are using each week. Ya’ll are blowing me outta the water here but that is okay. I am making progress on some UFOs/Bobs and decreasing my stash.

    I can only hope to use 100 yards in the whole year. If I never bought anything for the whole year I’d have a chance. But I don’t do as much quilting as you do. Work interferes with my habit.

    I have used about 19 yards of my stash this year. This years goal is to put a dent in my stash. So far, it is just a drop in the bucket! I am piecing backs from different materials to try to use as much as I can. And I don’t think I have bought any. Or at least yet. I will be going to Mary Jo’s in NC …so all bets are off then!!!

    And to keep me honest, I too have started a spreadsheet for my Stash Reduction Program.

    I hope your back is better soon.

    Take care,

    Oh me oh my – I had to go shopping again. I’m now in the red but hope to rectify that very soon. 🙂

    Nothing in or out of my stash cupboard this week, but I’ve been having a marvelous time playing with UFOs! 😉 My totals are the same as last week: Bought YTD 6 yds, Used YTD 29 yds. But when we make our Bears in the Farmhouse(s), I think we’ll all advance by 8 1/8 yards? (if my math is correct) Have a great week, everyone! I just love being able to touch base with this group every week.

    I for one will be doing the Quiltathon next week……..I will be doing no cooking, no cleaning, I’m not even going to make my bed……..some one else will be doing all that for me……….as I’m going on a retreat!!!! 3 days of nothing but sleeping (very little), eating (awhole bunch) and quilting. I own’t be able to report in as I won’t have my laptop along, but I’ll report when I get back!!

    A finished project this afternoon offset yesterday’s shopping spree. I’ve still got quite a ways to go to the 100 yard mark.

    Although I have been good about using my stash, I am drooling over the new fabrics I see in quilt magazines and on the Internet. I am getting low on some colors and on big pieces so maybe soon I will give in and go shopping.

    Only used 2.87 yards this week, although by this time next week I will have finished Bonnie Hunter’s Double Delight quilt top and then I will count up all the stash I used for that so my total should really rise!

    For the year to date- I have not purchased any fabric- 0
    I have now used 51.75 yards from my stash!!

    I am pleased!

    Finally got my butt in gear and did a little sewing this week. I enjoy reading the blogs and see how others are busting stash. I wish I had the time to do more.
