It’s been about 10 weeks since I last posted a stash report. And I really do not have much to say other than over the last 10 weeks, I attended my LQS anniversary sale, I was gifted a ton of yardage, and I didn’t finish anything other than a few drawstring bags. I didn’t count anything in or out but I want to start back at it. So I’m just going to say that I added 15 yards net in the last 10 weeks. It might be over or under but if I try to be accurate I’m never going to jump back on this saddle. And I really want to get back on this saddle.
The fabric stash:
- Used this week: 0 yards
- Used year to date: 7.5 yards
- Added this week: 0 yards
- Added year to Date: 23 yards
- Net ADDED for 2017: 15.5 yards
A few weeks ago I was about to give up counting stash altogether. But since then I’ve gone to my LQS a number of times and bought more fabric. Some of it was for projects I was working on or planning like my Civil War Diary quilt but there was a lot that I bought just to buy. That’s when I knew I was in trouble and that I had to get back to my weekly stash reports. I recognize that I purchase more fabric when I’m not quilting. So by the third visit I decided to stop going to the LQS and really start using that time to quilt. In addition, I also decided not to count my craft spending any more. It really doesn’t help me reduce my spending and it just makes me feel guilty about how much I do spend.
Since I last posted a Stash Report, Judy decided to do away with hosting the linky for the Sunday Stash Reports. Where is everyone posting now?
Slow Stitching Sunday
Here’s where I was last time:
And here I am now:
I’ll be working on that big center flower today and hopefully get that done. I’ve still got a bunch of little pieces to add so I’m not sure how much longer it will be before I can count this block finished.
~Have a quilty week!
