Stash Report – Week 12, 2016

Happy National Quilt Day!

Okay, I’m not sure when it actually is.  Whether it’s today or yesterday or Friday.  All I know is that I went to my sew in yesterday and I took advantage of 40% off a single cut of fabric.  And I checked out the sale room and bought additional fabric for 50% off.  So I added fabric!

Purchases from my LQS 3/19/2016

Purchases from my LQS

I got 2.5 yards of the fabric on the left.  Since I’ve got to make 31 strips for SFVQA strip club, I’ll need that much.  Thank goodness I was able to find a good yellow in the sale room!  I did check my stash first and didn’t find nearly enough of 1 yellow.  The other 2 I got 1 yard each.  🙂  I’m doing a happy dance.  I really wanted to buy more but I restrained myself.  I knew I was on a budget AND I forgot a box of sewing stuff for my sew in so I had to buy stuff (or go home and get it).  I bought it and decided that those items will stay in my sew in/workshop travel bag for next time.  And on to the numbers…

For the fabric stash:

nothing used yet.  Scrapitude is really almost done.  The binding is half way done.  It’s on the quilt, I just need to hand stitch it to the back.  I’m so happy to still be in the back!  I’m excited to see how far I can stay in the black.
