Most of my stash is packed and ready to move….actually all of it is. It’s a little depressing. I did keep out a few UFO’s and made a few more UFO’s before everything got packed away so don’t worry, I do have things to sew on.
I am trying to see how long I go without buying any fabric this year. That’s what happens when I pack it all up and see how much I have!! I am making some exceptions though. Fabric that I find at thrift stores doesn’t count when I say “not buying”. Honestly compared to many who show their fabric stash on social media, I don’t have that much but in my world, I have WAY MORE THAN PLENTY!!
So all the way into January on the 4th…have I purchased any fabric. Yep, I did. But it was thrift store fabric…3 1/2 yards for $1.50. That’s a legal purchase for me!
I don’t keep a regular tally of fabric in. It’s just too hard as we get so much promotional fabric…and I buy scrap bags at the thrift stores. As long as it fits in my storage area, I don’t mind.
I do like to keep a tally of what I use though….so here’s the first report of 2015.
Used this week… 0 yards.
Used to date… 0 yards.
How boring was that!! I have a feeling, until we get moved, all my stash reports are going to be pretty boring.
Check out Patchwork Times for more stash reports. Hopefully someone there has a little more excitement going on in their sewing room.

Jo, your stash reports are never boring. Anyone who can buy 3 1/2 yards for $1.50 is amazing!
I’d say that was almost “free fabric”. What a deal. You did very well.
That was a purchase that couldn’t be passed up. The hardest part about having fabric packed up, for me at least, is not being able to get the piece I need and then I go out and buy more. Hope you get yours unpacked soon.
