For my birthday we went out of town and as I do when I travel I visited the local shop.  So I have 8.597 yards added to the stash.  Nothing finished yet. I didn’t get a chance to post a stash report last week so I’m just adding it in now. The hubby funded this expense so I’m not adding it to the budget. 🙂

For the fabric stash:  

  • Used this week: 0 yards
  • Used year to date: 65.5  yards
  • Added this week: 8.597 yards
  • Added year to Date: 102.472 yards
  • Net ADDED for 2016: 36.972 yards

For the Budget: 

I bought a new foot for Luna.  On that post I talked about getting the #37D and/or #57D.  On my 330 I have both the 37 and 57 so I figured I would get both the 37D and the 57D.  But when I went to get them last month the shop only had the 37D in stock.  I meant to go back and get the 57D but didn’t feel like spending the money.  I was at the shop today and discovered they have a new foot, 97D that combines the 37D and the 57D so I got the 97D.

Spent this week: $84.

Spent year to date: $4,499.85

For the yarn stash:

OMG! I forgot I finished my socks!  I’ll have to find time to get a pic for y’all. 🙂

Used this week: 225 yards

Used year to date: 525 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!  I’m halfway through stitching on the stem.  Here’s the pic from last week:

Next step is to get those flowers appliqued on.  I’m leaning towards tiny blanket stitches to match the tiny blanket stitches of the darker inner purples.  This block is almost done!  I’m not sure how quickly I’ll get those flowers on but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  🙂

Until next time…
