I have to confess, I’ve already blown my stash reduction resolution made at the beginning of the month – it’s a lot harder than I thought! In my defense, I had good reasons for purchasing the following items (and some of it falls under the rule exceptions).
Here is a bundle of Halloween fabric I purchased at an online quilt shop. This fabric line features “Boo Kitty” and is designed by Bonnie Sullivan of All Through the Night. There are several good reasons why I needed this much. First, it was on sale for a very good price and there was a 1 yard minimum cut per fabric. Second, this line was released years ago and is VERY hard to find. Third, I have the cutest pattern for a Halloween table topper that uses this fabric and I WILL make it – I promise!
Here is my haul from the thrift store. I usually find nice large pieces of corduroy and denim that I can use for my bags. There is a new pattern in the works and I will need to make a few prototypes. It’s better to use fabric from the thrift store since it is so cheap (about $1 a yard).
So, as you can see, all these purchases were justifiable. But just to keep things honest, I am going to write down my MONTHLY stash report (it’s apparent these need to be done monthly, in order to have the desired effect of actually reducing the stash):
- Used the last month: 1 yard
- Used Year to Date: 1 yard
- Added in the last Month: 30 yards
- Added Year to Date: 30 yards
- Net Used for 2012: 29 yards

All good reasons to buy fabric. I have some of the halloween fabrics left from a few years ago, just some scraps now, that was a fun line.
Thanks for your support Lynn! LQS = Local Quilt Shop 🙂
You are such a fabric tart!!!! 🙂
No worse than you! 🙂
I think calories are easier to keep track of than fabric. Just indulge and enjoy yourself.
That’s a great way to look at it!
