I finally counted all the fabric I scored from my guild’s treasure hunt. It was a whopping 36 yards! And I only spent $13! Great on the pocket book but not so great on the stash report. I’m actually okay with this. I’ll be in the red until I get Hampton Ridge finished but it was too great a deal to pass up. 🙂
For the fabric stash:
- Used this week: 0 yards
- Used year to date: 51 yards
- Added this week: 36 yards
- Added year to Date: 71.625 yards
- Net ADDED for 2016: 20.625 yards
For the Budget: The spending was out of control this week also. In addition to the guild treasure hunt, I paid for my monthly BOMs at the LQS, and bought markers to make my bullet journal colorful. I actually went through a couple until I found the right ones that wouldn’t bleed. They are the Tombow brush pens. I love them!
Spent this week: -$248-
Spent year to date: $3,983.08
For the yarn stash:

And for Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy at Kathy Quilts, I plan to work on A Rainbow Garden again today! Here’s what it looked like last week:
Here is how it looks now:
But before that, first I pressed the freezer paper onto the wool:
Then I rough cut all the pieces…
And once I did the final cut, removed all the paper.
And here’s my wool scraps.
Do you keep all of these? I have been because we can use such small scraps for wool applique. I don’t know if I’ll want to do anything with it but I may so I’m keeping it for now. It’s not that much, just about twice the size of a sandwich bag. Maybe one day I’ll decide I don’t need them and throw them out.
Until next time…

~Have a quilty week!
The Rainbow Garden project looks very interesting. A fun project to work on this lazy Sunday.
Thanks Karen! 🙂
I didn’t realize there were so many steps with the wool applique… it was fun to see all your photos. The prep work would take quite a bit of time! Enjoy the slow stitching today!
Thanks Kathy! I always forget how long the prep work is until I have to do it again. 🙂
Thanks for sharing your process. I haven’t worked with wool yet. This quilt is going to be so lovely!
Sure thing Cynthia! I love working with wool. 🙂
I love how you show what your work looked like the previous week as well as the “behind the scenes prep!” Great idea! I may have to copy you if only to encourage myself!!!! Thank you!!
Thanks Patricia! It’s so slow that I like to see the progress from week to week. It does encourage me to see that bit and continue moving on. 🙂
