Folks, it’s time for the first stash report of 2009. A couple of quick reminders:
- If you’re adding your report to the Mr. Linky box, please be sure the link is to the direct post and not to your main blog. Links to main blogs will be deleted.
- If you’re not tracking exact numbers but are working to bust the stash, it’s perfectly alright to post about your efforts for the week. You do not have to have numbers in order to be stash busting with us.
- There have been questions about what to count and when to count it. It’s all up to you. Remember, there are no stash police (or at least I hope not!). Some count it when the top is completed. I count it when I pull the fabric from the stash and cut it for the top. At that point, it’s no longer in my stash waiting to be used in another project. So long as you’re not counting it when you pull it from the stash and when you complete the project, you’re fine. I worked on a top last week (the green and purple one) that half the blocks were made but they were started several years ago and had never been included in the stash count so the whole amount got counted this week. The top I’m working on tomorrow was counted in last year’s count so only the borders that I’m adding will get counted in next week’s report. Use your own judgment . . this is supposed to be fun and no one else is going to worry about you. We trust you!
- Good luck! If you’re starting out doing a stash report, then I think that means you want to use the stash and you want to share your results with other stash busters. Try to stick with it. After a while, it’s second nature and you won’t find it burdensome at all.
OK . . here’s my report.
