Stash Report Week #33...

August 13-19, 2010

After some lackluster stashbusting weeks, this one makes a nice bump in my numbers.  Maybe I can still make my goal of using twice as much fabric as I purchased this year.  There are still 19 weeks left, so we'll see.

I bought a half yard of Bone colored Kona Cotton this week for a project for my mom.  I'll add it this week, expecting it to be out of here by the end of the month.  And that's all I purchased!  Yeah!

And this week saw the completion of several projects.  First I finished making 5 angel gowns for my church.  I had 10 to make, but the rest are on hold right now.  Each gown was serged, hemmed, velcro attached, invisible zippers inserted and size tags added.  The ones I completed were all a size medium and each one used 4.75 yards of fabric - for a total of 23.75 yards!

Angel gowns

I also finished my mom's birthday present.  I'm giving it to her tomorrow so I'll share pictures then.  It used 6 yards for the top, backing, binding and hanging sleeve.

So...
Purchased-this-week: .5 yards
Used-this-week: 29.75 yards
Purchased-to-date: 182.25 yards
Used-to-date: 321.5 yards
Net used: 139.25 yards

If I purchased no more fabric for the rest of the year (yeah, like that's going to happen), I would only need to use another 43 yards to meet my goal.  Perhaps I'd better try to finish the other 5 angel gowns sooner rather than later.  They give a nice boost to my used totals.  Plus the remaining gowns are size 2XL and 3XL so that's even more fabric!

Until later...

Better to be poor and honest than rich and dishonest.
