I am freezing.
Well not literally. And I know all you people out there who actually ARE freezing are groaning and rolling your eyes. But I live in Louisiana, honestly, do we have to have freezing weather.
37 degrees with 90% humidity. Miserable cold. But we are seeing sunshine for the first time in nearly 3 weeks. It looks deceptively beautiful.
And the heater went out in the dog room at CAAWS. So I have to be there to let the AC guy in to fix it. I'll bet it was cold in that old building last night.
I started the Rainbow Scrab Challenge 2016 and the Stash Report.
I encourage you to start doing the stash report. It has made me realize how much I did buy and how much I already had that would work in my quilts.
You don't have to count what you have, just start from January 1 and log your usage. Whatever you use is a negative and whatever you buy is a positive.
I have tried several ways and settled upon this method as easiest. I set up my spreadsheet as:
I have two additional columns before these - the first is the date of the Sunday I am reporting and the second a fabric description just to remind me what I used. Like "spools backing" "baby stripes binding".
|Used this week||0.00||Used this month||0.00||Used this year||0.00|
|Bought this week||0.00||Bought this month||0.00||Bought this year||0.00|
|Plus or minus||0.00||Plus or minus||0.00||Plus or minus||0.00|
Opened my eyes the first year I did it.
I also have a list of UFOs, but we won't talk about that one...............
