And.... a stash report.

I've watched so many others do their stash reports with great interest, but I've never really done one myself. Still, I really need to slim down my fabric habit. And what I learned during my years in the business realm is that what you measure gets acted upon. So if my goal is to use more fabric and to buy less, I'm more likely to act on that goal if I measure it and track it.
That being said, I'll just run a little experiament. This year I'm going to issue a monthly stash report.
These won't be the most riveting of posts. Feel free to skip them if you wish. Or you could cheer me on with lovely comments. Actually I like that idea best. Yes, please do. Leave me lots of lovely comments. And to make this post a little less boring I'll conclude it with a blast from the past photograph!
