Stash Busting Report Week 47

Just FIVE more reports and 2009 is over - the year has flown by and with the upcoming holidays I know the last FIVE weeks of the year will to.
I joined Judy's 2009 Stash Bustin Challenge and I have been doing pretty good about using from the stash and making quilts and projects without buying more new fabric to add to my stash. but ... this week I had to BUY fabrics! EEEK!!!
HERE is the link to see how great the other's are doing.
Worked on some swap blocks, gave some away to a friend and sold some more fabric this week to maybe offset my buying a bit.
Fabric Added this Week: 5 yards (EEEK!!)
Fabric Added Year to Date: 8.5 yards
Fabric Used this Week: 1.5 yards
Fabric gifted/sold this week: 16 yards
Fabric Used Year to Date: 88.25yards (12.5 yds used/sold this week - nice to be in the positives still!)

Here's my thread usage report --I have over 51 spools of thread on hand ... this is bad, very bad! I keep finding spools of thread everywhere I go to clean and organize in there ... now tell me just many spools of thread does a person need??? I finished that spool from last week and I'm close to finishing another one. But ... I need to buy beige/white thread this afternoon when I run my errands so that will offset what I'm using.

Spools added this week: 0 spools
Spools used this week: 1 spool
Total Spools used to Date: 10 spools
Total Spools bought to Date: 2 spools

until next time .... happy quilting and happy stash busting!

5? 5 weeks? That can't possibly be right. I have 1 week before my trip, then I'm away for a week. Which will mean only 3 weeks left in the year when I get back. And I haven't even started Christmas shopping!!

You are cruel, to remind me of that. :)

I'm with Krista--you have to wrong about the weeks. I am SURE there are at least 30 more weeks until the end of the year. Yes, I am. Positive.
