Stash Report Week #8...

February 26 - March 3, 2012

This week saw some movement in my stash - both incoming and outgoing.

On the addition side, my local quilt store had a Leap Day sale where you could use your 40% off JoAnn's coupon on one cut of fabric.  I used mine to buy 4 yards of this pink grunge fabric by Basic Grey.  It'll be great for a future backing.

I have to admit to being tempted by a few other fabrics recently, but thus far I've held off on buying more.  My stash is so large, that I really don't need it.

I finally finished a project this week too.  It's the February Schnibbles project.  I'm calling mine The Night's Sky.  I changed the pattern some and think I used 2.75 yards for the top.

I also made some HST's (half square triangles) for another project, but won't count them until the top is done.  Other than that, not much sewing going on over here.  I am hopeful that I can get back to quilting La Maison  this week and potentially even finish it!

Purchased-this-week: 4 yards
Used-this-week: 2.75 yards
Purchased-to-date: 9.5 yards
Used-to-date: 20.25 yards
Net used: 10.75 yards

This time last year, I had already purchased 42.5 yards, so I'm feeling pretty good about that number.  Of course, I'm using a lot less than last year too.

The cats are still enjoying their fort, although I think it's about time for us to take it down.  They have plenty of other toys to play with so I'm sure they won't miss it.

Until later...

  1. You are doing good resisting It is very hard, I know! What is the March project going to be?

  2. I was looking at one of these Schnibble books last week. They have some really nice designs. Wow, I just noticed your 2012 UFO list. I have both the Baltimore Christmas (already started by machine) and the Baltimore Halloween, pattern only as of yet. Wow,are you going to quilt all these yourself? Very impressive list! LOTS? I have 2 blocks kits. Holy Moly girl, I need to do some digging to see some of these. You are one busy girl!
