Stash Report Week 22

Fabric in this week: 1.5 yards
Fabric in this year: 36.666 yards

Fabric Busted this week: 5.75 yards
Fabric Busted this year: 79.923 yards

Total Busted: 43.257 yards

Even I am impressed with my numbers! I have a chance at being at 50 yards busted by the end of week 26. I only have to bust 6.743 yards more than I purchase in the next 4 weeks. I think I can do it!

I know that I was going to try not to purchase any fabric this week BUT I was cutting out some Christmas stockings and I forgot to reverse one, which means no back only 2 fronts. So off to Buy another half yard I went. Since I am now going to be making 2 pink stocking I figured I should buy another half yard of the green so I can make another green one too. Then the quilt shop have fat quarter for $1.50, I picked up 2 batiks.

What did I make this week? Good question, I made clothes for American Anne, 9-patches for the quilt along, stripes for the Calendar Quilt Challenge and some other stuff. I finally cut up some old Dessert Rolls of the Moda Kansas City Star fabric to make a disappearing 9-patch.

I will post pictures tomorrow for Design Wall Monday. So come back I see what I did last week.

Week 21

Fabric in this week:2.333 yards
Fabric in this year: 35.166 yards

Fabric Busted this week: 2.666 yards
Fabric Busted this year: 74.173 yards

Total Busted: 38.674 yards

Okay so I bought some fabric. I did it to make some stuff to sell on my Etsy site. I have already made a Christmas stocking, it is sooo cute. I am hoping to get my camera working at some point this next week to list the pile of stuff I have for my shop.

I also started the 9-Patch A Day Quilt Along with Amanda Jean. I decided to start this project last Monday night and to do it ALL from my scraps not stash. The problem was upon starting I was 22 days behind! As of today I should have 28 blocks made, I currently have 21 blocks. I have not made one yet today. I am VERY happy that I am some what caught up. The bonus is that the 9-Patches alone will use up 3 1/2 yards of fabric! Plus it will need sashing, backing and binding purely from my stash.

Goal for next week: Again 5 yards busted and no adding!

I allowed myself to purchase up to 20 yards while I was on vacation in Solvang. I can say I am proud of myself I only bought 16 yards on vacation. I bought a yard before I left for Judy's stash quilt and I bought 2 yards when I got home for another project.

My goal for this next week is 5 yards used. I have no idea what I will be making but I am making something. Also I will NOT buy any fabric this week! Check back next Sunday to see how it goes. I will try to post a picture of what I got done too.
