Use my stash year was a great success.
I certainly bought a good amount of fabric.....I was surprised to look back over my spreadsheet and find that I bought 117 yards this past year.
It started with 38 yards at the Fabric Shack last January. Two big 13-17yd months of impulse and hawaii souviner fabric. Then the rest in dribs and drabs.
But, just like any fast, you crave things less when you haven't had any in a while. So even though I filled MANY a virtual shopping cart, I learned not to push the BUY button.
Since week 32 I have only bought fabric twice, for a total of four yards.
I really want to USE my fabric before I no longer love it.

With the 5.75yds used in the last couple weeks to make four tree pillows (one more for Caleb's religious Ed teacher) the grand total used this year was a tad over 120 yards.
I used 3 more yards than I bought in 2010
My fabric cabinet is in no way empty, so I have lots more to use in 2011. I'm going to continue logging for the new year. I started the year out with another trip to the Fabric Shack one again. I'll share the results of that fun once I get it all organized.
Here's to using all our fun fabric in 2011!
