I think I might have mentioned that I didn’t make any resolutions for this year. Well, that might have been a slight, tiny, hardly noticable, little white lie.

I know, I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have tried to mislead you. But, really, I didn’t make any RESOLUTIONS, I simply made a list of SUGGESTIONS for myself!!!!

As in, I SUGGEST that I try to lose weight this year 😉

getting weighed

And, I SUGGEST that I not buy more fabric than I can use.

Okay, that just warrants a ROTFLOL!!!! 😯

Well, with these simple SUGGESTIONS in mind, I went surfing around on the web for various information. And I found Nann at With Strings Attached. Here is a link to her January 1 blog entry:


I know that some people out there keep track of their stash in/stash out totals, with the goal of keeping the outs less than the ins. But when I saw Nann’s entry, it blew me away. A spread sheet!! With average cost per yard!!!

And did you all take a look at the 2007 entry for yards bought!?! 1,718!!!!! DH needs to realize that I am not any where close to being the person with the most fabric!!! And, finally, I want to meet up with Nann and go shopping with her!! She bought 142 yards of fabric for $2.00 per yard – why can’t I run across deals like that!?!

Okay, I’m not going to start a spread sheet, but one of my SUGGESTIONS is that I keep some sort of tally of stash in/stash out. I’m not sure exactly how I’m going to do that yet, but I think that some form of accountability will be good for me.
