Well nothing was busted this week except for some water soluable stabilizer and perhaps some cut away as well since hand towels don't count.. smiles. Perhaps next week. There are a couple things that I would like to try to make at a very slow pace that is. This coming week is Keith's birthday so I would like to "TRY" to make a special Birthday place mat. I already have a pattern in mind and there is an embroidery pattern that I think would be perfect to go some where on the place mat. Whether I make it that far is a different story. It really is the thought that counts. As soon as we (Keith and I) Figure out what (1 color and 2 size) blocks we are going to use for our super secret Christmas projects there will be some busted stash.. Things will be embroidered and put into a WIP project box. In an effort to organize the sewing room we have several of those art bins from Joanns designated as project boxes.
Fabric that was added was already confessed to earlier in the week it all belongs to Thimbleberries Club that I'm hoping that others are working on too. I signed up for it prior to deciding to start stash busting. I don't know what my group is actually doing because they are in San Diego but maybe I will find an online support group working on it too.
Fabric added this week: 3.6 (There is actually more because they sent me the first trimesters fabric but it was packed nice so the others will be counted as I get the pattern books)
Fabric added year-to-date: 25.45
Fabric used this week: 0.0 (towels don't count but I sew'd)
Fabric used year-to-date: 2.25
Net Fabric Used: -23.2
I have a question for the other ladies working on stash. When do you count it as busted. When cut or actually sewn. Being my first year doing stash busting do I get to count UFO's that have been added to the flimsy pile as busted stash as long as they haven't been counted before?
