I couldn’t restrain myself. At Road2CA I found this little baby at a price I could not say no to. I don’t have to clean it up or deal with broken bits. I can thread it, plug it in, and start sewing. I actually haven’t had the nerve yet but once I get through the awe of actually having one of my own, I’ll get going on it. I made a bunch of purchases yesterday and I’ll be showing them off over the week. But I want to spend the rest of the day working on a project so here’s the stash report:
I used half a yard on the little pin cushion I finished last Sunday –
But I added yardage from Road2CA. In previous shows, corduroy fabric was my fabric. I first saw it at the Long Beach Quilt Show in 2012 and at every show and quilt shop since, I keep an eye out for it. Now, my LQS carries a bit of it so. I have a Corduroy quilt I’m working but I love the fabric so every time I see a different one, I buy a bit of it. I didn’t see any at Road2CA this year. Which made me sad at first. Until I saw Moda’s Linen and now I am loving Moda’s Linen. I do not know if I’m loving Moda’s Linen or linen in general but now I’ve got my eye out for linen. So I’ve got 5.25 to add to my stash.
In addition, I bought a kit. I know I said no kits but I want to start making bags and bag kits are going to help me start learning how to actually do this. It’s bad enough that I often cannot understand the patterns but to have to gather all the materials makes it really hard to get started. So – I bought 1 kit to try it out. (I have 1 kit here at home that I know of and maybe more stashed away). I WILL get to it at some point. I’m not sure how much yardage is in here but from the supply list I’ll round it to 2 yards.
I’m almost done with Flowers and Baskets – only the binding left to do so that will help with my numbers soon. In the meantime:
Used this week: .5 yards
Used year to Date: 7.5 yards
Added this week: 7.25 yards
Added Year to Date: 20.25 yards
Net Added for 2015: 12.75 yards
~Have a quilty week!
