Stash Report Sunday 12/8/13

I seem to be on a fabric-buying binge lately. It has been harder than usual to resist the on-line sales, and there should be a package from Connecting Threads arriving next week. I think that was my reward for enduring a colonoscopy prep last weekend. Such an unpleasant experience!

Today I stopped at Joann Fabrics to return an ironing board cover that I had picked up a few weeks ago, and ended up buying still more fabric. I got 3 yards of Kona white, probably to be used for next year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge project. The two very bright prints are planned to become part of a baby quilt for a co-worker. I love the color palette of the top fabric and couldn't resist buying a little of that too.

On the used side, I finished another set of placemats, made from this beautiful Laurel Burch mermaid stripe and coordinates. You can see the finished placemats tomorrow. 2.75 yards total used. 

Used this week:           2.75  yards
Used year to date:     88.25 yards

Added this week:         6.75  yards  
Added year to date:    86.25 yards

Net year to date:   
      2 yards used

My numbers are still teetering on the side of more fabric used than added. That will change when my order arrives next week--time to get sewing and maintain the balance.

  1. I love the mermaid fabric! And I think buying fabric is a perfect reward for enduring the colonoscopy prep. That is not fun stuff!

  2. Your Jo-Ann's has much prettier fabric than mine! Just look at your used numbers - you have done great! The other is just stash enhancement.

  3. Jo-Ann's usually has a great price on Kona solids, our store moved and no one has been able to find the Kona since! I especially like your third fabric from the top, it will make a great binding. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Beautiful new acquisitions. You'll have lots of fun with those.
