September 14th, 2014 - The Stash

So this week it’s not “what was I thinking” but ” where did that come from” and “when did I buy that”. I found a container of Christmas fabric in the family room. There are placemats all cut and ready to sew. even the applique is ready to iron on. I didn’t even know I had the stuff. I was looking for something else and I found that box. I couldn’t even tell you what I was looking for because once I found that box, I was digging in it and I must say, I love all the fabric in there. I guess there’s no “what was I thinking” here.

Now for my numbers.

Fabric used this week: 6.51 yds

Fabric used YTD: 144.17 yds

Fabric added YTD: 60.54 yds

Net fabric busted: 83.63 yds

I am in the process of sewing up the placemats and they are really cute, an Art to Heart pattern. I checked back in my spreadsheet to see if I ever counted this fabric and it wasn’t there. The book is from 2004 and I started doing stash reports in 2009. Lucky for me that I never counted all the fabric purchased before 2009, I’d be in the hole big time!

Anyway, have a great week and enjoy this beautiful quilting weather. Not too hot and not too cold.

    I love how you find stuff all over and by chance. It’s like a never ending scavenger hunt with surprises at every corner! 🙂
