Stash Report Week 52!!!!!
Well, I made it through the year keeping tabs on things, and what an eye-opener it was! And what comic relief for readers!!
The last order of the year arrived. I got in two yards of Sumptuous Living pink; a Lucien tower, 7.5 yards; and a Twice the Charm pack of Sumptuous Living, 2.5 yards, I think. So 12 yards in - and nothing out!
I was playing around with a spreadsheet this morning, trying to find a neater way of keeping track. I decided just to get another small notebook like the one I used this year. I have lots of margin notes in it and that helped to remind me of things this year. Today I thought I had forgotten to buy some border fabric earlier in the year, and I looked back in my book and found I had purchased it. I also found a lot of other things I've already forgotten about! LOL. Honest to Pete, I forget things almost immediately these days. I wonder if old-timer's disease has set in! Hmmm....
I'm really ready to sew up a storm in 2009. The first six months will be extremely busy at work, but I'm going to focus on the work during the week so my weekends will be free to sew. I'm going to sew something every night, though, which means I should always have an applique block prepped. Most nights I'm too tired to turn on the sewing machine, but I do often sit and stitch for a bit if something is ready to go. Yeah, that's what I'll do.
Thanks for organizing this, Judy. I failed miserably this year, but there's always next year!
