Well, if it's time to add new stuff for this year, maybe I'd better record last year's stats:
Fabric In: 81.5 yds
Fabric Out: 39.75 yds
Last fabric purchase: 11/27/13
Garments made for me: 12
Garments made for other family members: 1
Home Dec Items: 1
Miscellaneous Church sewing:
5 mantles/stoles for Girls Only pins
2 tote bags; plus fabric out for 4 the girls made
School Costuming:Handful of alterations for 'Mousetrap',
Poppies for 'The Wiz' - 6 skirts
1 dress refashion
Misc. repairs and alterations
Charity Sewing:4 Pillowcases
All in all, pretty dismal. I'd feel less guilty about the lack of sewing if I had not purchased something close to 40 yards more than I sewed. And it's not like I went horridly overboard...it averaged to about 3 pieces of fabric a month for the year. Not crazy, but... I'm running out of storage which IS crazy and it's got to stop. Another reason to sew the good stuff..
Which means I have even more egg on face, because I have to own up to the first 'fabric in' batch of the year, three fabrics from Gorgeous Fabric's year end sale...
So, that's 6 5/8 yards to start off the year. And the Flute Player, remembering the rough academic year we had last year, opted to withdraw from the musical so as to not overload herself. So, while I could end up helping in the costuming a bit, I will not be obligated to spend weeks sewing.
The SWAP actually looks to be a possibility for this year. A very definite possibility...
