Sunday Stash Report - December 26th 2010

Fabric added this week:  0 yards
Fabric added YTD:  196 yards
Fabric used this week:  0 yards
Fabric used YTD:  118 1/4 yards
Net used for 2010:  -67 3/4 yards

As I didn't really set a number of yards to be used, my real goal for 2010 was to hinder the impulsive buying and I accomplished it!  Ending on the negative side of stash busting is not a bad thing, I've had a productive year regardless of how many yards of fabric I bought or not.  The best product of this year was getting my own sewing room; it still is a work in progress and I'm sure it will continue to evolve as I figure what works and what doesn't. 

I've also had lots of fun this year with many mysteries, free patterns, great tutorials and just an amazingly inmense amount of talent and inspiration, but most importantly? getting to know many people on the internet quilting community.  I still have to work on being a little more friendly or rather being less shy.  I sometimes feel like a child on her first day of school and find myself taking peeks at others from behind my mother.  I'l work on my courage and will eventually get out completely and join the party.  

While I wait for the year end festivities to be done, (and while my sewing room is occupied by unexpected but welcomed company), I'll work on a list of goals for next year.  Oh, and while I wait for everyone in the house to wake up, I'll grab another cup of coffee and read lots of year end stash busting reports at patchworktimes.com

Good job! Sometimes the goal is to enjoy the process and you have a great organized sewing room!

I agree with Liz. The only goal you need to have is to HAVE FUN. I know how you feel...my sewing studio (Charlotte Angotti told us to call it a studio and it will get more respect) was occupied for a few days by DGD#1 while DGD#2 had the guest room. We are looking into another solution to that little problem.

I've not learned to be very chatty either, but that's okay! We'll all find friends! It's been fun reading your blog since I gifted you with my scraps!
