Stash Report - Week 50

I had a busy week at home and work this week, so didn't take too much time for sewing in the evenings. However, I did get all my fabric cut for the Easy Street mystery part 3. Last night, as I sat down to start to put part 3 together, I realized I had cut 1/3 of my pieces the wrong size - ugh! I guess the up-side to that is that I was able to use a little more stash. I am also hopeful that I will be able to reuse those pieces in part 4. I also cut the pieces for another tote bag, which will be a gift for the kids' bus driver. I only need to figure out one more teacher gift and I think I have something that I can re-purpose/finish in time for Friday. 

Fabric added this week: 0 yards
Fabric used this week: 2 1/8 yards

Fabric added year to date: 39 1/4 yards
Fabric used year to date: 102 7/8 yards

Net fabric used: 63 5/8 yards

With only 2 weeks left to go in the year, I am at a good place. I am thrilled to have a gross used over 100 yards for the year and very happy to be so far on the positive side of net usage.   I went back and looked at my numbers for 2010 (the first year I started tracking) and 2011, and surprised myself that I have added less fabric this year than I had in both of those years! I am only ahead of 2010 by 1/8 of a yard, but I'll take it! 

Hope you had a great week with your stash!

Congrats on your great numbers. Doesn't it feel good to use more than you brought in?? Merry Christmas to you and your family.
