Stash Report Week 5 (one for me)

Stash Report Week 5 (week one for me)

I was just at a brand new to me blog that does a stash busting accounting each week with links to other's progress so i thought I'd give it a try.  Hope you'll join me in this blogger world of accountability for our stash and how to whittle it down.

Fabric in: 0 yards
Fabric out: 0 yards
Total fabric in: 0 yards
Total fabric out: 3840 sq inches
The 3840 sq inches come from the potholders I made kits of earlier this month.  Though I've begun to think that I'd prefer to account it as actually busted after the potholders are sewn.  Will decide next week the final for that choice.

Not really busted, but cut up for block making were a few bits of scraps today.  As a part of the 25 weeks group at yahoo groups I am working at stash busting and being more organized and prepared for Christmas gifts (or whatever holiday you may or may not celebrate) and year round gift giving.  So today i got out this tub of scraps

That is a 66 qt plastic bin with some rulers, the cutting sizes and amounts for the block and my rotary cutter.  breast cancer awareness pink of course!

And for the small bit of time I had in the sewing room today I managed to cut these few scraps up for various sized blocks.  there are cutting sizes for 12", 8" and 4" finished blocks

Guess it doesn't look like much, but with the dry spell i've had (most of the past 4 years) well, I'll take it!


  1. Welcome to Judy's Weekly Stash Report. It's a great place to hang out. Congratulations on being in the black, that's a great place to start.

  2. Oh cool site. Of course I'm trying to build the stash from a quilters one to a clothing yardage. :) How is the new job??? Hope you are having a blast.

  3. I'm not keeping up with how much I use but I am keeping up with how much I buy - much scarier! However, I am happy to report no purchases this month. After I over indulged in January I called a halt. :) blessings, marlene

  4. I'm new to your blog. I tend to not count fabric as "OUT" or used till I've finished with my project and I don't publish my stash report--but i should to keep me honest, LOL.

    Hope you'll stop by my blog for a visit--having a give-away this week.
