Judy from Patchwork Times reports her overall stash usage weekly as a way to track how much fabric is coming in and being used.
Being new, I am still in the “stash-building” stage, and I have no earthly idea how much fabric I have at this point, or how much I’ve used to date. However, I’ve got a few months to figure it out and get started for next year!This fabric addiction thing… it’s powerful. It’s irrational. It’s compulsive. I’m not alone, either – it seems hundreds, if not thousands, of women are in its grip right along with me. Some are more easily able to afford it, others struggle as I do with guilt and lust. It’s like being on a runaway train, a train called “JUST ONE MORE CHARM PACK, I PROMISE.”
Stash-wise, I obtained far more this week than I’ve used. While I did finish up the blocks for the ugly 9-patch, I didn’t apply the sashing and borders to finish the top. I finished the Chocolate Mint quilt, but I also bought the materials for it, so that’s a wash. I made a nice top out of 3 charm packs, but I also bought those this week! Then there was the several yards that arrived unexpectedly in the mail, a remnant of The Ambien Shopping Episode, and I picked up a few Moda charm packs on eBay.
If I had to guess? I’d say +6 yards total, this week. Maybe 8. Used… probably 3.
The stash reports are an interesting idea. I should also probably start keeping track of how much money I’m spending, although that would probably just make both Mike Neir and me keel over and perhaps thwack me on the back of the head.
After payday, there may be Tula Pink Hushabye in my future, which only exacerbates the problem. 😉 I love the hidden bunnies and other critters!
The first set of bunnies on the left is easy to see, but there’s at least one more. 🙂
Oh, Moda… you vile temptress, you vixen, you siren!
