Stash Report - Week 52

This is it  -  the last stash report for the year.  I didn't get started with Stash Reporting until Week 22.  While I didn't do as much sewing as I wanted to during the year, I certainly did more than enough shopping.  I have a couple UFO's in progress that I've not counted fabric out for yet.  My challenge next year is to be accountable for the fabric I have purchased  and to get more sewing done.

My Secret Santa gave me a gift of twenty fat quarter fabrics.  Do I count these fabrics?  Would you?  After all they are a gift, but it is fabric coming IN.  OK, I'm counting it.   She did more than she should have.  Thank you!   Look at these pretty tropical batiks.  Aren't they wonderful - I love batiks!

And I know just the project for this fabric.  I've seen this neat bag by Bella Nonna a "Pocket Full of Rulers" #156 made up.  It uses many different decorative stitches and has lots of pockets and room for a cutting mat and project.  This will be on the new project list for me.

I did way more shopping than sewing this year too! I have also given myself the same challenge to sew more this year! Hope both of us reach our goals in 2012!

Love the bag pattern and the gifted batiks will be perfect!
