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!
