Thankfully, I'm *not* talking about wrapping presents! The one task each Christmas season that I *promise* myself I will not procrastinate on (wrap as you buy, wrap as you buy), even this year, I still put off until the last days! No, I'm ready to wrap up these year's stash reports!
No changes from last week. My numbers are decent. I didn't quite make the goal of using more than I took in, but I made definite strides over my stash-happy practices from the years past!
Those are my numbers from 2013 and 2012. I think I'm continuing to make marked improvements as I get older and wiser (and run out of space for stashing)! I've definitely decided that I will continue to report stash usage next year, but I think I will differentiate stash that I purchase versus stash I acquire by any other means.
I had a very quilty Christmas this year! Both kids got me lovely rulers and patterns and paper-piecing templates and acrylics!
I'm so excited to play with it all. Needless to say, I'll be playing around with the castle wall pieces today, for my slow stitching! I'm even more excited now about integrating those blocks with my POTC blocks and making something BIG! Whooohoo! Linking up to Patchwork Times and Kathy's Quilts!
I also got another quilty gift from my husband . . .
But it deserves a post of its own, so for now, this picture will have to do. Let your imaginations mull that over!
