Year End 2012 Stash Report

This is it, the final report for 2012. I can't believe how quickly the year has passed, and I'm sure 2013 will pass even faster as it seems that's how it is with each passing year. 

Used this Week: 0 yards
Used year to Date: 0 yards
Added this Week: 2.875 yards
Added Year to Date: 61.975 yards
Net Used for 2012: -61.975 yards

No, I didn't have any fabric 'out' of my stash, as far as counting it that way, but I did use quite a bit as I made more progress on many quilts this year.  I just didn't finish a single project, and that is why nothing appears in my 'out' record.  This is the most accurate, efficient, and consistent way for me to track my usage, rather than trying to deduct when I pull a fabric only to return any unused/leftover fabric to the stash.

The purchase I mentioned last week did in fact arrive this week, so it gets to be counted in 2012.  It was 2 7/8 yards (2.875) of this pretty Hoffman fabric.  I already had one FQ of it set aside for my Belle Luce project, but decided it would be good for the larger border in the project as well.  I've had this kitted, except for borders, for several years and back in 2009 has searched online and found the fabric at The Stitching Post in Sisters, Oregon.  Against all hope, I checked back and sure enough, they still listed 2 7/8 yard in stock, so I ordered it all!  It arrived very quickly, and they included these two Christmassy labels too.  They're adorable, and I have Christmas projects I can use them on, one of which the project will be done in a class I'll be taking at a quilt show in March.

Patchwork Times' Judy has many others giving their finals for the year too; head on over and check them out.

  1. What fun additions ... that Hoffman paisley is really pretty and the labels will be a sweet finishing touch on a lucky quilt or two! :)
