Stash Report - week 52


WONDERFUL LIFE
Completely done and going on my bed next month!


Used this week:        01.50 yards
Used year to date:                         287.50 yards
Added this week:     00.00 yards
Added year to date:                      110.00 yards
NET USED 2017:                                               177.50 yards

A decent final number for fabric usage, but the stash is still enormous!  The 177 yards consumed were the equivalent of approximately 2 tote tubs that are now empty.  I have about 30 more tubs, and two 5-drawer dressers still full of fabric.  Do the math: I won't be using up all my fabric in this lifetime, seriously.  Sigh.  I'm toying with the notion of a "no-buy" year next year --  even just a "no-buy" quarter once in a while would help.

I had a good showing this year in the Completions category also.  These are my own shorthand notes, but this is 31 completed quilts!  I currently have 9 tops that need to be quilted ... but I've progressed to not-more-than-two-years-old for that list!
