Sunday Stash Report - November 13, 2011

I was busy and totally forgot to post my stash report last weekend so this is for the last two weeks. Very little fabric used in that time as I have been concentrating my time on customer quilts and household chores.

I did purchase fabric AGAIN. A couple of yards of nice Christmas fabric for craft show items and then when I was in JoAnns to get some wonder under I saw some flannel they have for purchase by the bolt. The bolt was on sale plus due to Veteran's day I got an additional 20% off for showing my military ID. Couldn't pass up a sale like that right?

I have been trying to purchase only for craft show items or a project I am working on NOW and not buy just to stash but I broke that rule this time. My daughter told me she would like to have TWO dorm quilts to go off to college with next fall so this bolt is destined to be backings. Won't start picking patterns or anything for a few months but in this case I thought it was worth stashing it for awhile.

Stats for the last two weeks are:

Fabric used: 4 yards (borders and backings for runners)
Fabric used YTD: 261.25 yards
Fabric purchased last two weeks: 10 yards
Fabric purchased YTD: 198.50

Net fabric used in 2011: 62.75

Even with all my recent purchases I still have a great net amount that I have used up this year so overall am happy with the numbers.

You are doing great on stashbusting and I agree that you have to grab those great discounts when you can....

Mandy will have her mother's love wrapped around her when she is away at school. You made a great choice. You are a busy beaver.

You've been busy to use as much as you have and probably couldn't have done that without the purchases you made (wink). I think you're doing well as long as you can keep the net in the black! Sandi
