September 23rd, 2012 - The Stash

Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged about anything. I’m just too busy to do this all the time, so it’s going to be sporadic posts. I love my new grandson to pieces and I need to see him more often. I need to quilt more too! I don’t know what I’ve done for the last month or so but I do know that it doesn’t involve much quilting.

20120923-153344.jpg I’ve started this quilt from a kit I bought at the AQS Show in Grand Rapids. I’m not adding then subtracting it because I don’t feel like it.
I did purchase a bit of fabric for a few red work stitcheries that are in the works. I like doing red work because I can do it at work and I don’t have to bring lots of supplies, just a needle, some thread and a pair of snips. No pattern to wreck by getting all scrunched up either.
Now for some numbers
Fabric used this week: 1.19 yds
Fabric used YTD: 119.42 yds
Fabric added this week: 8.66 yds
Fabric added YTD: 188.93 yds
Net fabric busted: -69.51 yds
Once I’ve cut this weeks purchase up, it might look a little better. Maybe some backings too. Anyway there’s always next year. I need to take a vow of poverty or something so I don’t buy any more fabric. I need to sew, sew, sew and then quilt, quilt, quilt!!!!
Until then, have a great week.

    Oh dear–vow of poverty!!

    new grandson’s are the BEST things! (nothing against little granddaughter’s–I just don’t have any!!) Get all the snuggling and hugging and playing in you can–they grow up way too fast!

    Love your fabrics! Redwork is so easy to transport. I’m doing an embroidery piece to have something to take when at the doctor etc. Works really well :*) Congrats on the grandson =^..^=

    New grandsons are excuse enough to slow down on your blogging, girl! You enjoy him and don’t worry. Are you coming to the Expo on Saturday? Cathy and I are going, not sure what it’ll be like, I hope it’s better than last year.
