Stash Report Week 4

I really hoped to end this week with a loss, but I ran out of fabric and had to buy just a little more, and, well, you know how that goes. Five yards later and I have fabric added to my stash that has no particular purpose, other than it's pretty and will work well with other colors.



I also bought some yarn and realized that I seem to be building a yarn stash.  And since I absolutely refuse to build and keep up with another stash, I'd better start using this.  Don't get excited knitters, I am only making hats on a round loom.  Baby steps.

I'll link up with Patchwork Times tomorrow.

You almost used what you bought. Hopefully you be back to stash reduction mode next week.

I hope so, but I seem to always buy more than I need when I go for "just a little bit more" at the fabric store.

With all I have, I am on my way to exchange a birthday gift as an excuse to buy more marine vinyl. I know I am going to buy almost every bit of their "left over" marked down pieces. Now - I have to get to selling them!

I am impressed with your skills to create a spreadsheet. I just keep track of mine in a small notebook! Hope you are able to find some time today to quilt or do some woodworking.

I love the spreadsheet format! It's so detailed... :)

Now that sounds like what I did (it'll be reported NEXT week) with going into the LQS to buy 'just a little more' so that I could do a binding and deciding to buy an entire yard, plus two other pieces of yardage though one of those does have a purpose! I too like your spreadsheet; did you do it on Excel and then if so, how did you get it posted within your blog message?

It was really pretty easy once I figured out how to make it repeat. If I can figure out how, I'll put it in a blog post.

Thank you! It seems to be easier for me to keep my eyes on my goal, though I couldn't prove that this week.

If you are like me, if you only buy enough for your project, then you find you need just a little more and when you go back to the store, it's gone. That's my excuse anyway.

Yes, I did that in excel and then did a screen capture to make an image of it. When I have some time, I'm going to see if I can figure out a way to post the working spreadsheet so others can use it.

You are so close to having a loss on your stash busting, I am sure you will reach that soon. I do the same thing when I go shopping, I always find something to buy because it is pretty.

Thank you for visiting. Yes, I am sooooo close. I just need to rein in the buying for awhile.
