Stash Report Week #44 & #45

In all the excitement of the new computer, I neglected to account for the stash last week. The previous week was a good one, with no fabric added and I finished a Jiffy Tote for DD. No pictures yet as the resident computer guru is organizing the new hard drive. :) This past week I decided to change the patterns for two of the nephew quilts which meant adding more fabric. I did finish one niece quilt which will help the totals.

My report:

Fabric added: +10 yards
Fabric added year to date: +234.5 yards

Fabric used: -10.5 yards
Fabric used year to date: -284.5 yards

Net fabric for the year: -50 yards (used)

What I accomplished last two weeks:
  • made Jiffy Tote
  • pieced, quilted and bound Niece quilt
  • pieced Nephew quilt to a flimsy

Goals for next week:

  • quilt and bind Nephew quilt
  • start on another Nephew quilt

I was aiming for 100 yards of stash used~I'm half way there with only a few weeks to go. Better get sewing (and stop adding fabric) if I hope to get to my goal. :)

You are doing good at 50 yards busted.....

I can relate to new computer problems. I am also working on cleaning out the old hard drive and deleting a lot of files I don't need anymore... sorta like stashbusting!

50 yards busted is great! You can get to 100!! We're pulling for you!

I bet you can make a pretty good dent in it with the sewing you have planned for these last waning weeks of 09.

Once the resident computer guy is done I know you will have some pics to show and in the meantime you'll keep busy, I'm sure.

Go Pat Go!! I'll cheer you on! So close! Skip the Christmas cookies and scatter scraps on cookie trays!

I'd be happy with 50 yards busted but I know you can get more. I know I'll finish with a negative used, but that's alright. There's always next year.

50 yards busted is GREAT! Unfortunately, I was in your area yesterday, at BF, and added to my stash...oh well...sometimes you just gotta have that *perfect* fabric :)

think of it as "we're too busy to buy any fabric and sew like crazy!" Today in between the rest of my hectic life, I cut and sewed all the blocks for a large patriotic quilt. My design wall is in layers-many layers. And I have two design walls! It's getting hard to stick the pins in!

Light a fire under that guru! We need pictures!
