Every year it’s the same. In January, we have lots of folks making stash reports. As the year progresses, more and more drop out. I can’t say that I blame you. I started out with several projects that have fallen by the wayside. Our first stash report for 2013, we had 53 reports.
As of last night, the halfway point in 2013, we were down to 23 stash reports.
If it’s just too much trouble, or you’ve lost interesting in quilting or busting the stash, I understand. If it’s because you’ve added too much fabric and you’re embarrassed, I understand that too. For several years, I was in that boat. You’re welcome to report how much you’ve used and not even show how much you’ve added, if that makes you happier.
I’m just posting this because some of you thought it was a good idea in January and if you still think it’s a good idea, the second half of 2013 begins with next week’s report so hop back on that wagon and get those stash reports written.
I find that it helps me so much knowing I’m accountable. Some weeks, when I really could find time to sew and just haven’t, just knowing that I need something to report gets me to the sewing machine and once I get there, I never want to stop.
You do not have to know how much fabric is in your stash. You can report only what you’ve used or what you’ve used and what you’ve added. If you started the year with us or even if you didn’t, the beginning of the second half of 2013 is a great time to join the stash reports and commit to busting the stash.
