Stashbusting Report -- December 2014

It was a strong finish for the year but overall I brought more fabric in than I used.  Sigh.

That seems to be a trend for me over the last 5 years or so. Sigh.

The good news is it wasn't the worst year for bringing in fabric.  Of course, it wasn't the best for using fabric up either.  2015 may be a great year since I have at least 2 queen size quilts that just need borders before I will be ready to quilt them.  (Of course, being big quilts I really don't have backing for either of them so I will be hitting up a Super Bowl Sale to buy backing.) 

Do you notice the red button to the right?  Or below: 
I've started to clean up and organize my studio and I'm inviting you to join me. Every Wednesday I will post an area to do 15 minutes of clean up or organizing.  Set a timer work for just 15 minutes to get that area cleaned up.  If you can't do it in one session you'll have 7 days to get the space done.  Some weeks you might be able to get done in a day or two.  Some weeks it will take more time.  Do the areas you want to work on and skip those you don't want to do.  I hope you join me over the next couple of months and get your studio Spiffed Up! 

Happy Quilting All!

  1. Not a bad year all in all. Just looking at your stash numbers, I'd say you were consistent, which isn't a bad thing either.

  2. LOL I’m going to need more than 15 minutes. I’ve got The Tramp remaking furniture for me again and the place is a shambles!! :-)

  4. My sewing room could definitely benefit from spiffing!

  5. I love how you've kept track for years. I don't have a studio per se, but one of my goals this year is to turn the formal living room into a convertible sewing room. Right now, all my sewing things are stuffed (and not neatly) into two cabinets. They'll need spiffing and then some.
