In keeping with my New Years Goal to not buy much new fabric, I'm keeping track of exactly how much of my stash I'm using. This past week I haven't gotten much sewing done, matter of fact, yesterday was the first day I even took out my fabrics. I did get one block cut out, and strips cut for a few more, so I'll count that all as 1 yard used this week. Definately will be using more next week - right?
Used this Week: 1 yards
Used year to Date: 8 yards
Added this Week: 0
Added Year to Date: 5
Net Used for 2011: 3 yards
Those 5 yards that were added in the beginning of the year is backing fabric for a UFO top. I found an awesome sale on this pink/brown fabric while doing the Quilting Is Murder Mystery, and I figured what were the chances that the exact same color scheme I needed would be on sale again? So, I bought some. But I'll use it - and when I do, it'll get subtracted right back out of that New Used number.
