Stash Report – Week #1, 2012

It’s a New Year . . and brand spanking new clean slate!  This year I’m going to try holding off and reporting only after I’ve finished the top and including the yardage for the top, then reporting the backing when I’m ready to quilt it and then reporting the binding when I’ve finished the binding so there may be long dry spells when my “used” numbers aren’t changing, and I hope there are longer dry spells when my “added” numbers aren’t changing!

Reminder – this is not a “no buy” commitment.  If you want it, can’t live without it, need it or whatever . . get it!  Report it and move on.  No guilt and no one should make anyone feel bad or inadequate for adding to their stash.  This is all in fun and we don’t stress over fun things, right?

I would like for my net number at the end of 2012 to be the biggest net number I’ve had yet.  What about you??  Will you have a big net number at the end of the year?

Used this Week: 0 yards
Used year to Date: 0 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards

    Hi, Happy New Year!! I will do your stash report and your UFO challenge. Mayby I even do the color pallet as this month palet is soooo beautiful!

    I tried to get the button for your blog on my blog, but I think I do something wrong, it says URL is wrong? I use the link from under the button.

    Happy New Year!

    I am astonished that 170 yards of fabric came into my house in 2011! My 2012 goal is for that “added” to be significantly less!

    Thanks for hosting this weekly stash report. It is fun to see how everyone else is doing with their stash busting – and me? I try to match you! Have a great 2012!

    Yes! I ended 2011 in the green. I only used 14 yards but at least no more fabric was added to my stash. Or actually it did, I replaced a lot of commercial fabrics with my own handdyed stuf which I like much better working with and managed to even have a net use in the end.
    Thank you so much for hosting this.

    I have the same UFO stats as Judy too!! Imagine that! I am trying to set up a blog so I can show pictures of my finishes. This might make me use my stash faster, hopefully. Happy New Year to all. Dar
