For the fabric stash: I bought fabric at Fat Quarter Shop. I am falling in love with the fabric for Spooky Halloween and I’m shopping around for a back for it. I don’t know when I’ll be done with it but I want to make sure I have the backing and binding when it is done. So a bunch of half yards fell into my cart so I can audition which one I’ll like the best for my backing. Who knows, maybe I’ll end up piecing leftover fabric together. I’m now in the red. I’m halfway through getting the binding on the Moon Glow so I’m hoping to get that in the used section by next week.

This block is coming along beautifully! Great slow progress!
Thanks Kathy! 🙂
Nicely done on your wool project. And I like your blog name!
Thanks Karen! 🙂
I’m going well tracking my fabric… not sure I want to track what I spend as well. That could be seriously scary. My husband helped me set up the spreadsheet in Excell and so everytime I buy fabric he reminds me I have to track it. If I started tracking the spending (and had him help with the spreadsheet for that too) I would be totally lost… he’d know everything Lol. Your blocks are looking lovely too
haha. It’s a good thing my husband doesn’t read my blog. 🙂
