February 15th, 2015 - The Stash

Let’s try this again. I already did a post on my iPad and tried to post it but it seems to have disappeared. Oh well, that thing is crazy and I’m ready to just get rid of it. It’s getting pretty old and I think it needs an attitude adjustment, more like the trash. Anyway here’s what’s happening here.

I’ve made a few quilts but don’t have pictures to show. I bought a few yards of fabric and don’t have pictures to show either. I lent my camera to my son and I can’t seem to get the pictures off my phone. I think I need to go take a course in uploading pictures from your phone and resizing them to fit on your blog.  Anyway here are my numbers.

Fabric used since the last post: 17.24 yds

Fabric used YTD: 25.48 yds

Fabric added YTD: 23.69 yds

Net fabric busted: 1.79 yds

I’m still in the good but I have some flannel coming just not sure of the exact yardage. It was a 40% off sale at Hearts to Holly in Charlevoix MI. I had my sister take a picture of all the flannel and I picked the one that I thought would be the most usable to my needs. I’ll get that when I go to the retreat up there at the end of the month. And that will be loads of fun. I can’t wait!

See you all next week and happy sewing.

January 4th, 2015 - The Stash

Well, here starts a new year of stash busting. At  least that’s what I’m trying to do. And of course, being accountable to myself  for any fabric that’s purchased. Last year I didn’t do so well in that department but there’s always a chance  to do better this year. I’ve actually finished a quilt and have started on 2 others. One is a comfort quilt and the other is strips from a strip exchange to make Hidden Spools from Bonnie Hunter. Funny how other quilters measure and sew 2″ strips. Lots of easing and stretching going on but that’s the beauty of an exchange.

Now for some numbers

Fabric used this week and YTD: 8.24 yds

Fabric added YTD: 0 yds

Net fabric busted: 8.24 yds

I hope to have a few finishes this week. The Quilters Three is having a sewing day on Tuesday but we are not using my fabric but a couple of kits one of the ladies picked up from Connecting Threads.

Let’s see how others are doing over at Judy’s. Have a great week!
