Stash Report--Week???

I am so behind. I have no idea what week it is.

In June I added 16 fat quarters, so that's 4 yards.

Last week I got a box from Mighty Mom (post pending about this) with a bunch of fabric in it, and on Monday I went back to the relocating local quilt shop and bought 5 yards of fabric and 22 more fat quarters. This makes 10 1/2 yards plus.

Then I got a package from Lori at Dakota City quilter (ditto on the pending post) with a fat quarter and some noodles. So now we're up to 10 3/4 yards and lots of pieces.

Added Year to Date: 27.25 yards+

Used/Gifted Year to Date: 7.5 yards.

19.75+ yards in the hole.

But no, I am not hanging my head in shame, Judy.
I do have works in progress, but I also have a swap this week. And some of MMs fabric will be used for quilting and some won't. Eh. It'll all work out, and if it doesn't, at least I am more aware of what goes in and out of my stash and I am okay with my purchases.

Don't feel bad. Stephanie. I gave up on trying to do stash reports. Most of the time I couldn't figure yardage used because I have been making everything scrappy. I've made lots of non-quilty stuff, too, like chair cushions and even some clothing. I know my stash is shrinking and that's the whole idea anyway.As long as you are using your fabric and not just storing it for your decendents to inherit, you are doing fine.

Sometimes you just need to *freshen up* the stash to help make the *old* seem *new*. As long as you are using it---you are doing good :)

I also got a package from Lori, but my personal policy this year is to not count gifts as incoming stash! Somehow, in my mind, that seems okay...

I couldn't remember what week it was either!! I guessed and was surprised to see I was right!!! I love the reports, even though I am only trying to find out how much stash I have - I have to count more of the things in the closet. Keeping track of what is coming in, helps me in my quest to see what I have here. By January, I'll be doing great!!! ;-)

I ain't counting no stash!!

nope, none, nada.
