I didn't do a stash report last Sunday - I was a bit busy celebrating Christmas with my family!
Today I will do a final report on the last 2 weeks and then a yearly wrap up
I offered to make a Christmas stocking for my hairdresser. She had asked about me making one for her stepson for next year but I said I would try to get it done before Christmas and I managed it. .37m
I also managed to finish off the Amy Gibson BOM I have been working on for a couple of years. 6.21m
The back of the quilt was pieced using lots of orphan blocks. I have had fun working out where they came from. Some I recall well and some I have absolutely no idea.
I forgot to add the Doctor Who fabric that I was sent by my daughter to make the messenger bag I made for my friend Suzy. As well as the .5m TARDIS fabric, which I used up in the messenger bag she sent me .5m Darlek fabric. 1.03m
For Christmas my youngest son gave some fabric - 3 .5m lengths of geeky themed fabric (Doctor Who, Star Wars and Batman) 1.54m
My stats for week 52 and 53
Fabric used 6.58
Fabric added 2.57
Net usage 4.01
Over the year I have completed 8 large quilts and 7 smaller quilts plus numerous smaller items. My spread sheet had 45 lines with completed item entries. So that is an additional 30 smaller item lines, many of which were multiple items (ie 5 potholders, 3 zipper purses etc) I tried to add it up but I kept getting mixed up but it was over 200 smaller items. I was very pleased with my progress.
Comparing it to last year.
2015 2016 (diff)
Fabric used 147.47 172.99 25.52
Fabric Added 76.70 83.76 7.06
Net usage 70.77 89.23 18.46
So this year I have added more fabric than in the previous year I used even more. So I am making inroads into my stash. I still have a good bit there and in 2018 I would like to use even more and stick to buying only what I need.
This year I am considering sewing more things for the geek market and perhaps joining my daughter at some of the craft conventions that she goes to, particularly those aimed at the "geeks". To do that I am going to have to buy the specific geek fabric so perhaps my aim to buy less won't work, hopefully though I will make these into items fairly quickly so there will be a quick turn about.
How have you gone this year? Have you too made inroads into your stash or are you still accumulating.
