If you would like to see how others are doing check out Judy's blog. are ye doin' me maties? You do know it is talk like a pirate day, don't you? But since that is the extent of my pirate vocabulary I shall leave it at that.
This week I finished my DWR. You can read about it here. So I am able to report 14 yards busted. I am in the black again. When I sew up the backing and get it quilted that will be another bunch of yardage. I have used over 100 yards so far but I have almost purchased that much too. I guess the good thing is my stash is not growing. 

I have started cutting out my basket quilt and discovered that I needed three more fat quarters. I purchased those on Saturday. I was looking at my spreadsheet and discovered that it is exactly two months since I last purchased fabric. Pretty darned good.

Not much sewing will be happening this coming week. I am off to hike the red rocks around Moab, UT. We will be in Arches, Canyonlands and Natural Bridges National Parks. Hope to have some pictures next week. 

Have a great week busting that stash......maties.


  1. Isn't it good to realize that the buying is slowing down? LOVE it!

  2. You should always look on the bright side. Congratulations in making to the black on your stash numbers.

  3. Your WDR is absolutely stunning! And 14 yrds used, wow!

  4. You're still in the positive numbers so that's good!

  5. I like to think of stash reduction is more like "stash rearranging"--using up old to replace it with some new.
