My Stashbusting 2011..
At the start of the year, I pledged that I was going to reduce my stash by using or giving away 1.5 metres of fabric for every one that I bought or was given. I had to keep it realistic.
Also, I don't count dress making fabric that I may occasionally buy, or fabrics sent to me to use for a tutorial, which in accounting terms, I call "fabric in, fabric out". That fabric isn't going to get out of control and fill my whole laundry!
So the pic above is all the fabric that I have bought or been given this year, just over 8 metres. I have plans for all of it. There is a bit of new Denyse Schmidt from Spotlight this weekend, fabric tied in bow from Sew Mama Sew in exchange for a tutorial, a bit of Sherbet Pips and Riley Blake from Ballarat Patchwork I couldn't resist.
I've given away or used over 30 m of fabric so far. I can nearly close the laundry door...
I have bought a bit of a stash of wool this year though.. and I'm trying to keep my stash on ravelry up to date too.
