Week #35 Stash Report

I have a couple of goosechicken eggs this week. Nothing in and nothing out.

Here are my numbers to date:
  • Fabric Added: 0 yards
  • Fabric Added to Date: 98 yards
  • Fabric Used: 0 yards
  • Fabric Used to Date (goal 150): 119 yards
  • Net Used: 21.00 yards
So how am I doing? I was hoping to keep my "enhancement" to under 100 yards but with my monthly FQ bundles, Madison Quilt Show, and shop hop coming up, I know I'll go over that. My new goal is to stay under 150 which I still would consider a successful year since last year I added 374 yards (ouch). I've already used 17 yards more than all of last year. And there are still four more months to go. There may be hope for me and this stashbusting yet.

My goal for this week is to get the rest of the A Haunting We Will Go rows sewn together and start on borders. There are several windows and a bat that has to be appliqued on too.

That is a cute wallhanging - do you have a picture of the background fabric? I'll check earlier posts to see if I missed it.

You are doing great on the stashbusting concept - slowing purchases, using more of the stash. Maybe we should really consider the process a stash rotation!

Love the start of the Halloween quilt and love the background print. Halloween quilts are so much fun to make.

I love your Halloween house! Is that the "Great Pumpkin" rising up behind? :-) The puppies are really cute, too.
