A new year
and no resolutions.
I recently heard a life coach talking on the evening news. She does not recommend making resolutions because most folks make unattainable resolutions that set them up for failure. Not that I am much of a resolution maker any way but I'll use this excuse for no resolutions this year. I will be continuing my attempt to use more stash than I acquire. And, I'm happy to say I succeeded at doing just that this year!
Fabric used: 5 3/8 yards
Fabric purchased (acquired) : 1/4 yard
Net fabric USED from stash: 5 1/8 yards (yea!!!)
Year to date fabric used: 70 1/4 yards
Year to date fabric purchased: 65 yards
Net Year to date USED from stash: 5 1/4 yards
I didn't use as much fabric this year as last year. Last year I used a bit more than 91 yards and my purchases were about the same. So, using 5 yards more than I bought is great from my point of view. I was happy I could still pull enough fabric from my stash to make a New Years Eve mystery quilt.
Although I won't be making resolutions this year I have some quilting goals to share with you.
• Continue to finish UFOS
• Continue to use more fabric than I acquire
• Pick several quilts from my books/patterns to make
• Finish at least one applique quilt (of the 3 or 4 I've got going.)
One of things I've noticed recently is that I don't often make from quilts from the many books I acquire. I make a lot of mystery quilts which I enjoy but I'm still buying lots of books and patterns so need to use them too. Therefore this year I'm going to make a list of 5 or so patterns that I want to make and I'm hoping to actually get them made.
Check back for a parade of my finished quilts. I'll be posting all the quilts I finished this year in the near future.
Time to go back to really watching the Rose Parade.
Happy Quilting All!
