I can hardly believe that this is report number fifty-two . . . the final stash report of 2012. And even with all the mega sales going on, I'm not ending the year with a bang . . . but rather with a little *ding*ding*ding*. I was lucky enough to score a sweet little bundle of fat quarters, from Barbara over at Cat Patches, and her November NewFO linky party!
Isn't it scrumptious-gorgeous?! And it's *purple*!!! I've had to be careful not to drool all over it. I already know how I'm going to put some of it to use, too! (Think *words* and blog hop.) Anyway, that sweet little pile of fabric was all that came in, and none went out, so here are my final numbers for the year:
Used/donated this week: 0.0 yards
Used/donated year-to-date: 50.5 yards
Purchased/added this week: 1.5 yards
Purchased/added year-to-date: 194.75 yards
Net used/donated for 2012: -144.25 yards
It's been an interesting exercise to keep up with intake/outflow. I will definitely keep up again for 2013, though I still haven't decided whether I've got any particular goals for fabric for 2013. I've still got a day or two to mull it over. In the meantime, you be sure to head over to Patchwork Times and check out the rest of the stash reports for this week. I understand Judy to say her last report was to be for laughs only!
And for this afternoon, slow stitching will definitely be my occupation! I've been working away on my redwork course . . .
That's my bird -- isn't he rather dapper? I've got a daisy scroll, a pansy face, and leaves on my tree to stitch up this afternoon, as well as an apple. Then I'll try and finish up my butterfly and maybe even move on to a new bonsai tree and a sea shell. (And that's all just in Lesson 4!) I'll be linking up with Kathy's Quilts and Slow Stitchin' Sunday!
Enjoy the day!
