Sunday Stash Report

Well, I have a pretty boring stash report this week.  I've been sewing, but I still can't count anything out.  The good news is, I haven't added anything.  I don't have any chance of being in the black before the end of the year, but with Christmas around the corner I really want to keep my fabric spending as close to zero as possible.  It is so easy to overspend this time of year, so I think fabric should be an easy thing to cut out.  I have a handfull of Christmas projects I want to make for my family, and I will only buy fabric if I need it to finish a project.  Honestly, I probably have enough Christmas fabric to sew for at least 3 families!  :)

That being said I have set all of my current WIPS aside to work on Christmas items for my family.  My objective today is to start cutting out the pieces for a tree skirt.  My husband has said twice this weekend that he would love for us to have a tree skirt this year (subtle, isn't he?).  We always get our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving, so I have to get working!

Yesterday I pulled out the squares I was working on earlier this year for a Christmas quilt.

I just love this line!  I'm not sure I'll be able to finish this before Christmas, but it is fun to pull these out and work on a couple at a time!  Hurst is really into snowmen lately, so he loves it!  I don't want to put too much pressure on myself, but it would so nice for him to be able to cuddle up in this quilt this season...

Has anyone else been bitten by the Christmas sewing bug yet?  I usually try to wait until after Thanksgiving, but I'm too excited this year!

Onto the numbers:

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 34.75 yards
Added this week: 0 yards
Added YTD: 137.75 yards
Net Added YTD: 103 yards

As I said, no chance of ending the year in the black, but Christmas sewing from my stash should help!

To see how everyone else is doing, head over to Judy's.

Nothing in as a good thing. Good luck with all your Christams projects. I had big plans to make 5, and will probably finish 3. Oh well, who says we can't dream big!

I'm with you - no more "in's" until after the holidays!

I also have a ton of Christmas fabric. We already have 3 Christmas quilts in the house and I have a big bag of scraps and yardage in the drawers - what was I thinking?!

Looking forward to seeing your Christmas projects. I've been wanting to make a tree skirt for our home too. My friend got one last year from me and my sister the year before. No one else is asking so perhaps there's one for me next year. Sandi
