Here it is almost April and I'm having one of my old lady, "My stars, time sure is moving fast," moments. Seems like a good time to take stock and see how those self proposed stash busting goals are going. I've got a spread sheet and everything!
Quarter One Totals
Yardage sewn up - 46.5 yards. Thanks to ye old spread sheet I've found that my monthly yardage average is about 15 yards. Good thing to keep in mind when I start filling my virtual carts with yards and yards of fabric.
Given away or trashed - 38.25 yards. The Stash Diet group helped me out a lot by finding new homes for fabric that I'd fallen out of love with. I also fessed up to myself that a few UFOS laying around were actually wadders and could not be salvaged. Don't worry, I wouldn't throw away lovelies any of you could use.
Purchased - 30.5 yards. My January and March acquisitions were modest (3 and 6 yards respectively) but I went a little crazy in February. Waechters Fabrics retirement liquidation and the sneaky way Fat Quarters up your yardage where the main culprits.
Total yardage down........54.25! Woot, Woot! Now I've got to remember that fabric given away totals will be low next quarter and pray no more fabric stores go out of business.
Time for a Giveaway
The Stash Diet group announced that it's having a Spring Clean Swap Meet this weekend and I decided to go prune the pattern stash and offer a group of 6 as a giveaway. All of these patterns are uncut and some are still in their factory folds.
