August 31st, 2014 - The Stash

I see it’s been awhile since my last post but life and family has a habit of getting in the way. Anyway, I finally seem to be getting a few things done for a craft show in November. I was asked to do one next weekend and I had to say no. I don’t have enough items ready to sell. But will I in November? Hopefully, I’ll get it in gear and create a few sellable items and not look like a complete doofus with my one lone quilt for sale. Now for some numbers.

Fabric used since the last time: 52.44 yds

Fabric used YTD: 129.26 yds

Fabric added since last time: 19.19 yds

Fabric added YTD: 60.54 yds

Net fabric busted: 68.72 yds

Now I know it seems like a lot of fabric was used but I count it as I cut it. I cut out 19 flannel baby quilts, with only 6 being finished but I need another 20 yards to complete them. They don’t take long to make, which is a good thing. I need to get the 6 quilted and move on to something else until I get that yardage. I saw some fabric at Quilting Confections, the local quilt shop, to make the cutest Christmas pillowcases but I’m  forcing myself to stay out of there. I did go just before this fabric arrived and everything I bought was 40% off. I even went in there to pick up some needles and Katrina asked me if I wanted to look around. Right! I almost ran out of there. It’s like being offered a brownie when you’re on a diet!

So I’m off to sew, sew, sew! Have a great long weekend!
