It's about time to check in on goal # 1: Use up, donate or dispose of 100 yards of fabric.
Can't help but think I've gone in the wrong direction on this--given my postings to Sunday Stash this year.
Well, that covers the fabric in category; has any fabric gone out? Well, it so happens that I made a donation to the Children's Quilt Project of 3 yards of a fine-but-unloved fabric that had been in my stash for many years.
|Gone to a worthy cause!|
Used up? In order to count a fabric as "used up" for my 2015 Destash, the project that it is in must be done done--quilting completed, binding on, everything. This gives me incentive to actually finish an entire project (not just a flimsy, of which I have many). For the month of April, I am counting the "Java" mat as done, having met all of the criteria.
|10" by 17", plus binding and applique = 1/2 yard total|
|15" circles + binding = approx. 1/3 yard|
So... where does that leave me in the Great Fabric Destash?
Fabric In: 9-1/2 yards
Fabric Used: 5/6 yard
Fabric Discarded/Donated: 3 yards
Net Destash: +5-2/3 yards
How far to meet my goal? 105-2/3 more yards
Yup, just as I had predicted: so far this year I have taken in more than I have used/donated. That really will change soon. I have several things so close to finishing--this month, even.
How about you? How is your stash looking?
