December in Review

There was quite a bit of sewing, a flurry of sewing blew through my sewing table and machines, then no more. It was an exhausting month and all I have to show for it is more fabric and patterns added to the stash.

  • 78.36 metres of fabric, 
  • 26 previously unused patterns
  • 10.6 metres of trim
  • 20.50 packages of seam binding,
  • 12 zippers
  • 17 spools of thread
  • 6 sewing machine needles
  • 18 snaps,
  • 4 hook and eye
  • 60 buttons and
  • 6.8 metres of elastic.
And this this year I've added to my stash:
  • 74.5 metres of new fabric
  • 24 new patterns,
  • 2 metre of trim,
  • 15 packages of seam binding, 
  • 1 zipper,
  • 8 spools of thread
  • 2 sewing machine needles,
  • 42 buttons
  • 2 new sewing feet
  • 4 metres of elastic.  
Moral of the story:  Stash-busting is hard. Keeping New Year's resolutions are even harder.  

Happy Sewing! (

  2. Stash busting is SO hard! Oy!! I should count my yardage.



    :) Happy New Year!
