Last week this was the pile of “scraps” and quilting magazines I needed to go through. I’m happy to report as of last night I completed both tasks.
These are the magazines I’m not keeping, passing them along to my sister to go through. Yes, there are more in the boxes now than when I started. The last thing I did was go through mine, including those that hadn’t made onto the shelf since there wasn’t any room.
I now have space.
As for the “scraps”, after it was all said and done I ended up with a bin full of usable scraps and about 1/2 a popcorn tin of crumbs (the tin was 1/2 full to begin with). Although I do wonder why I collect crumbs. In the end I usually give them away.
In addition to the scraps, there was a bunch of Christmas fabric with fusible. There’s probably enough to decorate 2 or 3 sweatshirts.
As far as yardage goes…I weighed the scraps — 7.8 pounds. Doesn’t that work out to about 31 yards at 4 pounds a yard? I’m going to add it to the recycled column of my spreadsheet. It will still get counted in my total, but not as purchased yardage.
Fabric Added Since Last Report 31.2 yards
Fabric Added to Date: 197.074 yards (92.45 is recycled)
Fabric Used Since Last Report: 0 yards
Fabric Used to Date: 99.275 yards
Net Increase in Stash to Date: -97.799 yards
I really need to finish something. I’m going backwards….
Linking to Patchwork Times.
Ooh — I just realized I haven’t counted (or sorted through) the milk crate of scraps I bought at the estate sale a few weeks ago. Maybe next week.
