This is the half-way point for Stash Diet 2014 and there was some reluctance to step on the scales in my house. I’d suffered a 4 week sewing machine breakdown and then I fell off the Stash Diet Wagon purchasing my first piece of fabric this year.
Half way through the year but am I halfway from 24.8kg to my goal Stash Weight of 12.4kg?
Stash-tistics at the end of Quarter 2:
Stash fabric height: 56cm (starting 90cm/ Q1 76cm)
Stash fabric weight: 14.8kg (starting 23.5kg/ Q1 18.8kg)
Scrap fabric weight: 1.7kg (starting 1.3kg/ Q1 1.2kg)
Total stash weight: 16.5kg (starting 24.8kg/ Q1 20.0kg) —> Goal weight 12.4kg
Buying fabric doesn’t break my self-imposed Stash Diet rules but it does make it harder for me to achieve my goal weight and I think that is evident from this weigh-in. While toiles (and I made a few of those during the second quarter) bring down the over all stash, they contribute significantly to the scrap fabric box… I need to tackle this problem zone. Any non-quilting ideas or shall I just offer the off-cuts to a quilter?
