With all that's been going on these past months, I kind of fell off the wagon of reporting what I was using or busting from stash and what I was buying. Well, for a while I was doing neither. But, I have been hitting it hard, finishing up quilts for my show, getting samples made. So, I've been busting quite a bit of stash and have been keeping track of it. It kind of is like a habit, use fabric, write it down in my little black book. hahaha I don't know if it's too late to jump back into that Stash busting line up, but here's what I have done YTD:
Used YTD: 273.25 yards
Bought YTD: 153.25 yards
Net total: 120 yards busted!
Not bad, considering I fell off the wagon early on this year with Kaffe stuff! Here is the latest that just rocked my boat and begged me to buy it. I loved this pattern (edit. note: the pattern is a free download on the Hancocks of Paducah website http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/Item--i-M-PS-30180 and just a hint: if you like the fabric, it's about $30 cheaper to get the kit vs. buying the fabric individually--too bad I found out AFTER I did it!! LOL) the minute I saw it and thought about trying to use my Christmas fabric--and I have crappy Christmas fabric, ya know? So, I bought some and it has made me happy ever since. It didn't stay in the stash very long...like 2 days? I cut it out right away and sewed it up, so in it went to the count and then right out again. I probably could have just omitted it totally but I like to see how much I really buy a year, keeps me honest!
