Stash Report – Week 33, 2016

img_2168

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!

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…

  1. 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!

  2. 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!!
