More fabric. Again. I'm starting to see why Judy loses so many participants because, although I'm thrilled with the fabric that's been following me home, I hate to think what it looks like week after week. (And I feel like I need to add the usual "I hardly bought any of it it myself" bit -- this week, I bought ten yards of quilt shop quality neutrals for $20.)

A lot of the new fabric is estate sale sheets that Grandma picked up for ten cents each. There are some great solids and prints, and a couple that will probably be foundation for string blocks. Some is the old calico prints I love, found dirt cheap on Craig's List.

And, although it doesn't fit in the weekly report, I went through my existing stash and threw out thirty yards of fabric that was never going to be a quilt, or a cat quilt, or anything else I want to make.

Don't worry about your stash report...Everyone keeps them for different reasons. I keep mine to encourage me to not leave UFOs. I like seeing finished numbers.

I agree with Jo, we all keep our reports for different reasons. Sometimes how much goes out or in is not as important as what came in our went out. Good job on getting rid of what you won't use.

It's not all about the numbers. Sounds like you brought in all those yards with very little out of pocket! Great sales and we gotta have those neutrals.

I think if something is no longer in my stash it is out! So go ahead and count that 30 yards as out. It doesnt matter whether it is used (as in a project), given away, donated to charity or tossed! It IS NOT IN YOUR STASH!

I would count the 30 yards out on your report for sure!
