Use my stash year : catch up edition

I've been doing quite well with using my stash.  I have had an online cart filled at least three of four times.  But I wait a bit and then look over at my cabinet, and decide I don't NEED the new fabrics.  Even though I really WANT them!


I've moved from using up some purple to the colors I like best.  My greens and blues.  I cut a bunch for a scrappy boarder on a baby quilt I'm doing.

Since week 30, when I last reported, I added only 4.75 yards - solids I was really needing.  Really.  

I've used nearly 11 yards.

Busted (wk 31-40): 10.822
Purchased: 4.75
Net YTD: (13.025)  I'm getting closer to zero!
 
 


This helps, too - I have defective shingles on my roof and am having to do a full replacement today.  UGH.  That crane (run by the dude on the left with a remote control- cool!)  was unfortunately delivering shingles early Saturday morning.  Not fabric.

Oh no, we need to get our looked at for the same reason. Certainteed shingles are made here and there was a bad batch when our house was built. Way to go on using your stash!

Yes a pallet of fabric would be the coolest thing to find outside your door! Good job on using your stash!
