October 25th, 2009 - STASH WEEK # 43

 Already it’s week 43. The heat is on in more than one way. It’s pretty chilly here this morning and I’m thinking that I better turn the heat back on. But it’s nice and warm in my sewing room. Once that iron gets all fired up, it warms the room right up. Low ceilings do that too. And computers and tvs and……..

Anyway here’s the latest news flash. Don’t go to quilt shops to sign up for a class when the owner says they have some new stuff. Oh okay I’ll be right there! Am I crazy? The damage was only 5.5 yds and I’ve already cut some of it up.

Fabric added this week: 5.5 yds

Fabric added YTD: 230.44 yds

Fabric used this week: .25 yds

fabric used YTD: 215.61 yds

Net fabric busted: -14.83 yds

 A little backslide there but I’m planning on doing a few projects this week. I finished 9 rag quilts so that’s out of the stash. I only have 3 more to clip. Man are they messy! That stuff gets in your hair and all over the house. I’ve had to vacuum a few times and that’s not something I enjoy doing.

Now I’m off to the quilt store to take a class on using their quilting machine. I figure it’s something I should know for when I get my own machine. Whenever that is!

Have a great week.

    What type of quilting machine was it? Did you have fun, or was it intimidating?

    Sometimes when I’m cold, I just find something to iron, lol. You’re right, it warms the place right up!
    5.5 yards – that’s not so bad. Right? Well, I don’t think it is, lol. I don’t enjoy cleaning up after those rag quilts either!

    when I need to warm up I either 1)take a bath 2)go to bed with my electric blanket and read! Oh–something productive?? I bake! And I am not susceptible to new lines or classes! Woohoo!

    In your hair? That is SO funny. It’s like the charm packs leaving all the little bits of fabric on everything they touch because the edges are pinked.
