First off Happy New Years. I hope that 2012 will be a happy and healthy year for you. I can't believe 2012 is actually here! This is going to be a huge year for my family, my daughter will turn 18 in May, graduate high school in June and go off to college in late August!! Talk about a lot of changes that I don't feel quite ready for.
I fell off of reporting on the stash report the end of 2011 as I was snowed under with customer quilts and just had no time. Because of that I was sewing little and buying lots of Christmas fabric as it went on sale. I didn't keep track but know I ended up 2011 still in the black on using more fabric than purchasing and that was my goal.
My stash of regular fabrics feels a little "fresher" with some of the real old fabrics having been used up in backings and some of the newer colors and those wonderful batiks finding their way to my stash.
So again this year I think my goal will be to use more than I purchase, keep up on my reporting which helps keep the purchases under control and continue to use up some of the old stuff. Still have MANY panels that I had wanted to try and use up last year and never got to. Guess that will be back on my mental to do list for this year.
Fabric used this week: 3.5 yards (kitty quilt)
Fabric used YTD: 3.5 yards
Fabric purchased this week: 0 yards
Fabric purchased YTD: 0 yards
Net total used in 2012: 3.5 yards
A friend of mine that passed a few years ago always said to be sure and do something fun on New Years day, start the year with something that you want to be doing all year. So as always I will be sure and do a little sewing today, even if it is just a couple of seams.
