Stash Report 10/14/12

Hello! Back to a sort of normal week(I did enjoy the DGKs, just don't like it being so busy days on end), yeah! And although my Applique Thursday post was almost late, I do have a giveaway this week also.  You can still link or comment until midnight Wednesday by going here.

 I hope to get more quilting done in between the housecleaning for company here at the end of the month. So far pulled 2 1/4 yards for a St Anne's rag quilt.  Another 2 yards for another VA quilt. 

Here are my numbers:
Used/Donated last week: 4.25 yards
Used/Donated YTD:   152.69  yards
Added/Bought last week:  0.0 yards
Added/Bought YTD:    36.04 yards
Net Decrease YTD:   116.65 yards.  It's nice to be seeing some empty spots in my stash again! 

How are you doing destashing?  Really pays to go over your fabric and give some away.  Bet there's a local charity near you that could use a few yards.  Go on over to Judy's Patchwork Times and see how others are doing.

And just because we had a cold spell for a few days and roses like to second bloom in the fall, here's the first of my roses coming back for a farewell bouquet: 


  1. You are doing a great job on keeping your stash down! The exact opposite of me LOL! I did give away quite a lot to Confessions of a Fabric Addict for their quilt ministry a month or so ago. That worked out great for both of us! Our roses are still blooming so far - we'll see how far they go into fall :*)

  2. Hey, congrats. Your numbers look fantastic. I am just working on creating a stash, and making it look like an organized place to put fabric. I hope that it will look nice in the end. I am creating a nice crafting area. What do you store your fabric in? I have a cabinet I am going to use that has square sections, and I think I will put different colors in the different squares. Atleast that is the idea for now. I also have covered shoebox like things for fat quarters, and have put the different colors of fat quarters in those. Love to see the colors through the clear shoe boxes.
