Stash Report January 7, 2018

Here we are at the first Sunday Stash of the year. If you would like to link up for the first time, here are the rules.
Everyone makes up their own.
We report the fabric we add and the fabric we use with the hope of using more than we add. Some people report usage when the quilt is finished, others when the fabric is sewn and some when the fabric is cut.
I report adds from anything I buy, win or am gifted, but some only count what they buy. I do not count fabric donated to me for the specific purpose of making charity items because I don’t consider it mine. I store it separate from my fabric so there is no confusion.
You are also welcome to report yarn. I’m not a knitter and I don’t have much of a yarn stash. I do a little crochet here and there, but I rarely buy yarn. I just don’t have anything to report.
You should do whatever works best for you. The goal is to be more conscious of what we add. I know I’ve left fabric on the shelf many times once I thought about how I’d use it and when, if ever.
You do not have to report every week either. Some of us do, but others report monthly or when they have something to report. It’s all about what works best for you.
I had no fabric added or used this week. It was one of those weeks where a lot of effort yielded few results. Every time I touched the applique project I made it worse rather than better. Finally I gave up and did something else.
How did you do this week?

    Thank you for hosting the Stash Report again this year. I have found that “having” to be accountable really helps me to buy less and try harder to use more.

    I barely made a dent but sure added some! Oh well, it’s for planned purchases!

    In the past, I have done my stash report similar to you – adding fabric that is gifted or bought, but those donated to me for Quilts of Valor I keep separately and do not count it as mine. I hope your stash starts adding up to great usage.

    Thank you so much for hosting this party! It has certainly helped me to keep purchases on a need only basis (except for my LQS’s end of year sale) and to use more fabric! It’s actually fun to keep track of my fiber usage! Thank you for sharing!

    Applique is tough…….I admire your efforts!

    Thank you for keeping the stash report linky party going this year. It’s nice to see that you got a few new participants to add to last year’s regular crew.
