Stash Report Week #17 and #18...

April 23 - May 6, 2011

Long overdue on the stash report so I'll cover 2 weeks here.  Although I have to be honest and admit I'm seriously considering stopping these reports.  I really wanted to keep track of my stash, but considering I gave away so many hundreds of yards earlier this year, I'm not feeling so strongly about it now.  However, it is fun to go back and see pictures of what I bought, so I'll continue for the time being.

I was at the Circle of Friends retreat in Charlotte, NC for 5 days during these two weeks.  I played games of strip poker (2.5" strips) and FQ (fat quarter) bingo while there and managed to win this batch of batiks.  There are 24 FQs here, so that's 6 yards in.

FQ Bingo Winnings!
I also participated in a neutral swap with a group of ladies and received a few more in my welcome bag for the retreat.  That's another 10 FQ's in or 2.5 yards.

Finally, there was also a trip to Mary Jo's Cloth Store.  It's like the Holy Grail of fabric stores.  If you're in the area and you sew clothes, curtains or quilts, I highly recommend you stop there.  The prices are that good and so is the selection.  I picked up this bundle of quilting fabrics that will coordinate with my (soon to be) renovated sewing room.  I want to make a small wall hanging for the room as well as a quilt to go over the back of the sofa.

It may not look like it, but there are 15 yards of fabric in this pile.

Purchased-this-week: 23.5 yards
Used-this-week: 0 yards
Purchased-to-date: 100.75 yards
Used-to-date: 68.5 yards
Net used: -32.25 yards

Until later...

I’m a mess. I’m nothing and have nothing; make something of me! You can do it; you’ve got what it takes God.”
