Stash Report - Dec 22

I missed last week's stash report, with being sick.  And I haven't done much since then so I was thinking there was nothing to report this week.  But looking back, it seems I did get some stuff done since the last report on the 8th.

Binding swoon - 3/4 yards
Scrap quilt - 3 yards
binding Urban Candy - 1/2 yard
retreat challenge top - 4 1/4 yards

Total used last 2 weeks: 9 1/2 yards

Total for the year: 254 yards.  Drop by Judy's blog for more stash reports today.

There's one more stash report this year, but I don't expect to be finishing anything in the next week (well, maybe one quilt, if I get the Back to Square One Mystery caught up).  250+ yards for the year is great usage - but we're not talking about what came in this year :)  I think next year I'll go back to full accounting.  My stash isn't making me happy these days and I need to get back to buying what I need when I need it instead.  So, use up what I have and try to limit my purchases to necessary yardage.


  1. Good goals for 2014. Reporting what comes in really makes me think about what I do purchase, if I really need it or not. Congrats on using 254 yards this year. Merry Christmas.

  2. You had a great year on the usage side. My 2014 stash goals are similar to yours, buy what I need when I need it.

  3. Great usage for the year! I totally agree about needing to buy what you need when you need it. IMHO, this whole stash accountability thing is to make us really think about what we buy, not just collect fabric mindlessly. But sometimes what you need isn't in your stash and you have to buy something, and that's perfectly OK.

  4. Wonderful usage for the year. Wish I could say the same. I still have more in my stash that needs to get used before buying any more. That's my goal for 2014 too. Use what I have, if possible. Merry Christmas to you.
