Do you realize this is our last report for January? Even though most of next week is part of January, the Week 5 report will be on February 1. Hard to believe one whole month of 2009 is almost over, huh? How’s every doing? Are you happy with your Week 4 report? If not, do you see what you can do so you’ll be happier with your future reports? My feeling is that stashbusting is kinda like losing weight. You have to be ready to do it and ready to commit — it can’t be something you’re doing because everyone else is doing it. So, if it doesn’t fit your needs or your wants and wishes, don’t torture yourself. When the time is right to stashbust, you’ll know it. I’ll be here to hold your hand along the way whenever you decide to do it . . so long as you do it within the next 40 or so years!

I truly thought I could bust 100 yards in January but I didn’t and I doubt I can ever bust that much in one month. I sewed a LOT this month and I used a lot of fabric for backings. Looking at the full spreadsheet, I used 43.75 yards for backing. That was for 9 quilts. And, if you’re wondering, so far in January, I’ve quilted 15 quilts, not counting the two little doll quilts. That’s a darned lot of quilting! Like I said last week, I can’t keep up these numbers. I have so much handwork (binding, sleeves and labels) to get done. And, I can safely say that after having used 75-3/4 yards, I can’t tell one bit of difference in my stash. I’m wondering at what point I might notice the shelves are not bulging quite so badly. Maybe 500 yards?? I don’t know. I’m definitely not there yet.
Anyway, share your report with us if you’d like. Add a link to your specific blog post . . not to your main blog. Thanks! (If the link box is WAY down at the bottom of the page . . that’s just the way he’s acting today . . nothing I can do about it!)
