Stash report week 13 -24 March 2012

Another week of nothing in, nothing out. It was a busy week both at work and at home, so not much time for quilting. I did get a chance go do some of the piecing on my scrap stars quilt yesterday. I got that all cut and counted last week.


In this week. 0 yds
Out this week. 0 yds
In YTD. 0 yds
Out YTD. 14.73 yds

Stash report - week 12 - 18 March 2012

This report covers the last two weeks, since I didn't do a report last week.  I've actually used something each of the last 2 weeks.  First making binding, and yesterday, cutting out a new quilt.  I pulled dark blue and tan strips and FQs for the star quilt in Kim Brackett's Scrap Basket Surprises book.  The pieces are now all stacked in a box ready for sewing.

Still no fabric purchases.  I avoided temptation by skipping the annual auction at yesterday's guild meeting.  I did go by Patchwork Plus and get a new cutting mat for my new cutting table.  I like my new table - a kitchen island unit.  I have rulers hanging from the "pot hooks" on the sides.  And the drawer is great for being able to keep the scissors and rotary cutters out of the way.  I spent time yesterday putting away some of the "stuff" that had been under my old cutting table so that I could clear off the ironing board.  I still need a couple of baskets or something for the shelves to hold embroidery stabilizers.

Numbers for the last two weeks:

Used last 2 weeks:            4.11 yds
Added last 2 weeks:         0      yds
Used YTD:                     14.73 yds
Added YTD:                     0      yds
Net for 2012:                  14.73 yds busted

Stash report - week 10 - 4 March 2012

I have done some quilting, but nothing new for the stash report.  I'll have some more used next week, since I made some binding this morning.

Yesterday, I finished quilting my #1 UFO, Sunbonnet Sue (supposed to be the February UFO, but you know how that goes).  I finished my #8 UFO (the UFO of the month for March) in January, so I'm using this month to catch up with February.

Sunbonnet Sue still needs to be trimmed and have the binding put on (that was the binding made this morning).  I also made and put on the binding for my moth wallhanging, so it's now ready for stitching down on the back.

I'm not using much stash so far this year, since I count my usage as I cut, and so far, I've been focusing on UFOs that were close to being done.  Once I'm out of tops ready to quilt, I'll have to start working with blocks again.

My unchanged numbers:

In this week:          0       yds
In YTD:                 0       yds

Out this week:       0        yds
Out YTD:              10.62 yds

Net for 2012:         10.62 yds busted
