STASH REPORT - Week 47, 2012

Used this Week: 0 yards
Added this Week: 5 yards

Used year to Date: 178 1/2 yards
Added Year to Date: 103 3/4 yards 

Net Stash Decrease for 2012: 74 3/4 yards

Well,  I'm going to use Excuse #512 (it was Thanksgiving!), just like Judy did!!  However, I added yardage--Judy didn't!  So, here's what happened...


I have 2 beautiful little granddaughters in Hawaii, and they both love Dora, the Explorer.  (Dora came as a surprise to me about two and a half years ago--I was still in the Sesame Street era!) I made my older granddaughter a Dora pillowcase a couple of years ago--she takes turns using it with the younger granddaughter.  Now Dora shares the scene with princesses, so...2 yards of different princess fabrics and 1 yard of Dora fabric which will become pillowcases, hopefully this week.  And then, because Grandma loves angels, there are also 2 yards of different angel fabrics!  (When I worked at the library, I told an aspiring writer of children's books that if she wrote about princesses and used pink on the cover, her books would be a success!)


We don't have family close, so my husband and I helped with the community Thanksgiving dinner at the civic center, for our second year.  It was wonderful--we gain so much more from it than we contribute.  The roads were clear of snow/ice, which we think contributed to lower numbers.  But those who ate with us spent time visiting--and that's one of the goals of the dinner.  


I guess I have my work cut out for me this week--getting pillowcases made and getting my stash used number up to 200 yards.  As I look out the window, the trees are frosted with new snow and big flakes are floating gently to the ground. 


  1. What a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. I just try for the using number to be higher…..that way I don’t feel so bad when Frank comes into the room and frowns……

  3. What a wonderful way to spend the Season of Thanks! My granddaughters went thru a Dora it's Brats dolls...I prefer Dora!

  4. What a wonderful thing to do - bless you. Now about that fabric - since you are going to use it this week and it won't physically be in your stash (on the cutting table instead ) I say don't count it or subtract it right away - LOL. They are going to love their presents.
