One misconception about the stash report that I need to clear up before I break into hives . . we do not (or at least no one I know does) track our whole stash — just what we use. I don’t have a clue how many yards, inches, pounds, pieces . . not a clue . . what’s in my stash. I track what I use and what I add. That’s it!
Several of you have asked if I have a goal for yardage usage next year. Yes, I do. It’s a lofty goal and I doubt I come close to reaching it but I’m a firm believer in setting your sights high. Will it bother me if I don’t meet my goal? Nope! Will it energize me tremendously trying to reach my goal? Definitely. Will I tell you my goal? Yes, on December 31, 2010. Just to keep me honest, one person will know my goal. Only one person. Because if I don’t tell someone, you’ll never know on December 31, 2010 if I’m telling the truth or not .. except I think I always tell the truth . . unless I accidentally don’t tell the truth.
How do I track my usage. I use Google documents. It’s free and I can access it from anywhere. As soon as I keep a spreadsheet on my downstairs computer, I need to see it from my upstairs computer. Here’s a screen shot of my 2010 Stash Report document.
You can track your stats anyway you choose .. no rules .. just have fun with it!
Yes, I’m excited about starting over for 2010!
