Sunday Stash - 03/05/17

Does fabric you win count as bought? Part of me says it was free so it shouldn't count, but part of me says that it was acquired whether I paid for it or not. That was the big question for me this week because I was lucky enough to win some fabric from a giveaway at Brights On White. Lauren has a cool YouTube channel and I subscribed to her channel and won approximately 2 yard so fabric. The fabric is from Kate Spain's Jingle line and I think it will be perfect for some Christmas table runners.


Now I might have fought harder against counting free fabric, but I also have a number for my used column that out weighs what I received. I blogged about it on Friday. Sharla finished her Summerfest flimsy, so we get to count the fabric for that this week. It turned out beautifully, bright and cheerful which was exactly what she wanted. She is very happy with it.


So here are my totals for the week and year to date

Fabric Used this Week: 7 1/2 yards
Fabric Used year to Date: 68 5/8 yards
Fabric Added this Week: 2 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 10 1/2 yards
Net Fabric for 2017: 58 1/8 yards used

I actually used a little more because I finished the front for Mecca's pillow shams, but I've not calculated the fabric usage yet, so I will leave that for next week. Her quilt is trimmed and the binding is pieced and I hope to work on it tomorrow and Tuesday. I've also started cutting my City Streets, so lots of things in the works around here. Today I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times - Sunday Stash.  I hope you have a week filled with joy and love!!!!

  2. I only count fabric I buy because I'm trying to keep costs down, not fabric acquisition.

  3. I count fabric any way it comes in or goes out, so freebies count too - I find that it makes me think twice before signing up for a giveaway, as I won't want to count something that I am not really crazy about :)

  4. Your usage numbers are great! I'd say you are being very productive this year. I count whatever comes in, no matter how; but I also count if I gift fabric to friends too.
