Well I stuck to my guns and didn't buy any fabric this month! I am very proud of myself! Fortunately, I was so busy I really didn't have time to look at fabric sites or go shopping for anything other than Christmas presents. I also didn't have a lot of time to sew either, so my stash busting numbers are still dismal. Oh well, there's always 2012 right?
I'm definitely doing the stash report again next year. While I didn't bust my stash the way I had planned, reporting has been a very eye opening experience! I always knew I bought a lot of fabric, but I had no idea how much! This year was also a very busy one for us as a family especially with our new little guy, and his rough and tumble big brother! Big fun of course, but I have had very little time to sew. I'm hoping now that we are starting to develop more of a schedule as a family, I will find more time to spend in my sewing area! I want 2012 to be the year of using my stash! Of course I'm sure I will find some fabric that I must have, but I would like to try to be a little more thoughtful about my purchases! Here's hoping!
My numbers for 2011:
Used YTD: 34.75 yards
Added YTD: 137.75
Net Added this year: 103 yards
I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone else does tackling the stash this coming year! If I don't find myself back before the 31st, Happy New Year everyone!
