    Smile Statement of Stash Flow

    I saw the funniest thing on a quilter's blog: "The Stash Report." At first I thought it was an inventory listing of her stash yardage; much like a Balance Sheet. Nope, it was a Statement of Stash Flow! Fabric in, fabric out. Maybe we should all treat this quilting activity as a business; produce a balance sheet, statement of stash flow, and an income statement. Of course, the most difficult would be the income statement, as our quilting gifts are priceless!

    Any pin pushers out there ready to take on the business statements???

    I agree with erstan947. Not always knowing what I 'll find is what I love about stash.

    No accountability for me! I have enough trouble keeping up with my UFO's. My quilting is no business. I never make a penny from quilts. This is all just for fun and the love of giving.

    I've seen those stash in, stash out reports on blogs and always wondered why anyone would care. And I'm not being snarky, I really wonder that! I don't keep track of other people's stash, why would my inventory interest anyone?

    Only if I didn't have to inventory and could start from January 1 when the fabric moratorium started. To do a balance sheet for this year would be interesting.

    Fabric? What fabric? Oh, that's just a little pile of old stuff. And a few tubs of....things...I might need them some time. When the kids left home I just jammed a few handfulls of material in all the drawers of all the dressers that DH didn't fill with model railroad cars. What did I buy? Who, me? Just a bit of this and that. Hey, look what I made out of some old stuff I found in the bottom of the closet.
    Accountability? Maybe keep a little book like the Weight Watchers points report? Spreadsheets and graphs? Hah! Not on your life.

    I don't want an inventory. That way, when I find something cool, that I'd forgotten about, it's like found fabric. No accountabiity here! LOL

    Now there's an idea. All the batiks and civil war repros you want as free points like veggies...everything else costs points and you can only use so many points. That's what I call a fabric diet.
