Stash Report 2011 - Week 6

I've given up on sewing until this month is over. I'm putting too much stress on myself - feeling too guilty about it. If I do manage to get anything done, that'll be great. If not, it's okay. I'm good with that.

This week there were no purchases and no busts. But a give-away will be posted tonight or tomorrow that I think is a good one. I have no clue how much fabric is there, but I'll do a little figuring and see if I can't come up with a fair number. Check back later for the give-away details.

Meanwhile ...



At least one of us around here is sleeping well!

2011 Totals:

Busted: 36.61 yards
Purchased: 70.49 yards
Net YTD: (33.88) yards busted :(

It'll happen. The sewing busts will come. Just not this month.

Just sew when you feel like it. You shouldn't do it for anyone but yourself or you'll lose the joy in the actual process.

Stress is not good! Don't stress over it! Sewing time will find a way in when you are ready. Have a good weekend!

Hey - that fabric isn't going anywhere... waiting just for you. And the "work" junk as tough as it is--- supports the fun stuff like quilting.....

I am with you: no need to stress yourself with a "hobby pressure! When you feel like it and it fits into your busy life, it will be so much more fun. Hang in there!

Just like my tag line says....we do this for fun. If it isn't fun then let it go. This is a hobby so take it on your own terms. Besides, I did take some stitches for you last week. I will do some more for you this week. See? I've got your back.

I am not getting much done either and I also feel guilty. What's with us? We need to put our stash in a soundproof room to keep it from hollering I am thinking. One thing about it, the stash doesn't seem to be showing signs of aging lol. Just breath and Enjoy Penny,

Sewing is supposed to be fun. If it's stressful for you, then I'm glad you put it away. Don't add any stress to your ilfe! You're right .. that's a great giveaway! I hope this month passes quickly for you and next month is much better.
