Year of The Stash
Amanda over at The Cozy Pumpkin proclaimed 2013 The Year of The Stash.
Every January I look at my fabric cupboards, drawers, and totes that are stuffed to capacity and wonder how I could ever fit another fat quarter or charm pack into the already crowded space and vow that "this year I will only use my stash." Sounds good and I know I have said it before but I usually fall off the wagon about March or so when all the new spring fabric is in the shops and on the internet. It is sooooo easy to order on line.
Amanda suggests that we try to make projects using our stash and only purchasing the needed fabric to finish that project. That way nothing new is added to our stash.
So this year I will try to complete kits that I have, use some of the old/dated fabric and limit my fabric budget to what I actually need. There I've said it, put it in writing, now I just need to do it!
I even added a label Year of The Stash 2013 on my sidebar so I can keep track of my progress. How do you feel about your stash, I'd love to know. You can check out Amanda's blog here if you would like to join in.
Enjoy all the pieces of your life,
