Stash Report – Week 30, 2016

For the fabric stash:  I bought fabric at Fat Quarter Shop.  I am falling in love with the fabric for Spooky Halloween and I’m shopping around for a back for it.  I don’t know when I’ll be done with it but I want to make sure I have the backing and binding when it is done.  So a bunch of half yards fell into my cart so I can audition which one I’ll like the best for my backing.  Who knows, maybe I’ll end up piecing leftover fabric together.  I’m now in the red.  I’m halfway through getting the binding on the Moon Glow so I’m hoping to get that in the used section by next week.

  • Used this week: 0 yards
  • Used year to date: 34 yards
  • Added this week: 2 yards
  • Added year to Date: 35.625 yards
  • Net ADDED for 2016: 1.625 yards

For the Budget: In addition to fabric, I bought some thread this week so I spent $47.43.  July has not been a very good month for the budget.  hopefully I can do better in August.

Spent this week: $47.43

Spent year to date: $3,735.08

  1. I’m going well tracking my fabric… not sure I want to track what I spend as well. That could be seriously scary. My husband helped me set up the spreadsheet in Excell and so everytime I buy fabric he reminds me I have to track it. If I started tracking the spending (and had him help with the spreadsheet for that too) I would be totally lost… he’d know everything Lol. Your blocks are looking lovely too
