Stash Report – Week 36, 2016

I bought more fabric for Missing Ivy… I found fabric to use for the blue and white but couldn’t find a matching gold.  I need to go over to another LQS that’s not my favorite to see if they’ve got the gold I need.  I’ve been trying to get over there all week but haven’t gotten to it.  Today is the day to go because quilt shops are closed tomorrow and Monday.  Though my fave LQS is doing a Labor Day sale for a few hours Monday morning.  I may head over there if I can’t find something in my stash to bind Hampton Ridge with.

I really wanted Hampton Ridge to be done by now.  The numbers can benefit from a big finished quilt.  But it took me all week to finish quilting the borders and now I’m working on the binding.  So Nothing Used… yet.

For the fabric stash:  

  • Used this week: 0 yards
  • Used year to date:  51 yards
  • Added this week: 3 yards
  • Added year to Date: 74.625 yards
  • Net ADDED for 2016: 23.625 yards

Added more to what I spent with the fabric I bought (none of which were on sale).  Plus the time I rented the Bernina Long Arm to quilt Hampton Ridge.

For the Budget: 

Spent this week: $105.45

Spent year to date: $4,088.53

For the yarn stash:

Still haven’t finished my socks yet. 🙂

Used this week: 0 yards

Used year to date: 300 yards

Added this week: 0 yards

Added year to date: 1248 yards

Net Added for 2016: 948 yards

And for Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy at Kathy Quilts, I plan to continue my work on A Rainbow Garden!  Here’s what it looked like last week:

I didn’t have much oomph in slow stitching last Sunday.  All I had the energy to do was the remaining vine of the leaf that somehow got missed when I did the other side a few weeks ago and the french knots of 3 of the purple flowers.  I couldn’t even get up the energy to do the last one!  Whew!  Hopefully today will be better.  It’s nice to know I’ve got one more day of no work and can fully decompress an extra day.

I will work a bit on this today but my new machine is still sitting in my living room waiting for me to find time to get it all together.  Now that I’m done quilting Hampton Ridge, I plan to spend the rest of my Labor Day weekend cleaning and putting away the 330 and setting up the 790 in it’s place.  The girl and I are thinking up a good name for the new machine but I’m not very good with names so any suggestions would be welcome. 🙂

Until next time…
