I wasn’t able to post my stash report last week because I was out of town. But anytime I go out of town – I buy fabric! Specifically 12.33 yards of fabric!
I was able to work on Scrapitude yesterday as I planned.
But I wasn’t able to get the borders on. I didn’t make it to the LQS in time with everything else going on so I went through my entire stash. I did find fabric that would work for the borders but I didn’t have enough of it! C’est la vie! I will be going to the LQS sometime this week to get something for the borders. I was able to work on Month by Month! The only thing I had left to do for Month by Month was “put the binding on”! I was able to do that and the next step is to get the label. I’ll be working on the Embroidery machine to create that today. But I consider this a finish!
Used this week: 7.50 yards
Used year to Date: -36.25 yards
Added this week: 12.33 yards
Added Year to Date: 53.08 yards
Net Added for 2015: 16.83 yards
The SoCal Quilt Run is coming up in a few weeks and the kids and I have been looking forward to trekking all over Southern California and visiting the participating quilt shops. I took a quick look at the shops and noticed that the quilt shop in Westwood that I go to for the Modern Quilt Guild is not participating. I wonder why? Anyway, I bring the run up because expect a big jump in numbers by the end of June. While going through the stash for the borders for Scrapitude I recognize that I do not have enough darks in the stash. I think I’ll be looking to enhance that part of the stash. Although – to be real – I am going to make an effort to not by a whole lot. I enjoy the run to visit the shops but I really do not need to buy anything. I do at some point want to only buy fabric when I need it for a project. And I want my stash to be only scraps from past projects. That may be in my dreams but one day it will be a goal of mine. For this run though, if I feel the buying bug.. then I’m going to concentrate on focusing on dark valued fabrics. 🙂
~Have a quilty week!
Ooooo! SoCal Quilters Run?!?! Thank you for the tip! I’m so IN!
Yeah I think she’s hooked me too. We’re already plotting our map of shops to visit!
You guys should go! I’m planning out our trip right now too. It’s still up in the air for me since I’ve got a big work project that is taking up a lot of time. I hope that everything works out so that I could go!
We’re definitely going to hit up a few shops. Kinda bummed a road trip couldn’t be planned for some of the further stops but maybe next year that will be a possibility!
I once made your month Thimbleberries quilt with flannels. I gave it away, but not sure to whom any more….amazing what we forget with time. I had not remembered making it.
That’s funny – I’m not there yet but I’m sure I’ll get there. The Thimbleberries quilt was a first in so many ways.. I’m glad to have it done with.
