I was doing SO good this week .... and then yesterday Jane hog-tied me, threw me in the QuiltMobile, forced me into Stars & Scraps, and threatened me until I bought something! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :) :)
At 1:22 a.m. this morning the house started shaking, and it suddenly felt like I was sleeping on a waterbed mattress. Uh oh, earthquake! It was only a 3.9 but it got my attention. I lay there for a minute or two - two minutes, to be exact - and here comes another one. Okay, I'm awake. I'd rather be downstairs with Daisy if the big 'un is coming. So I loaded up a DVD and at 4:30 this morning I finished the binding on a quilt for a friend.
Because I didn't have a thing to report on the stashbusting front, I pulled fabric and pieced the backing for the Quilts in a Bag top that I will get the rows assembled on today. I'll post a picture when that's done. Whew, just in the nick of time for this report! 9 yards busted.
Now, about that purchase. Stars & Scraps had the cutest Easter quilt all kitted up just waiting for me. I don't have an Easter quilt, so that's my justification in this whole thing! 9.250 yards purchased, and this includes the backing.
I mean, this was way too cute to pass up. Did I already say I don't have an Easter quilt? LOL
My busts and purchases are almost equal, so my YTD totals haven't changed much. Another admission, I ordered some Simplicity from The Fat Quarter Shop but it hasn't arrived yet. I'm going to TRY to make something for the Simplicity contest. I say "try" because at this point the idea is just floating around in my pea-sized brain. Anyway, that will be reported next week when I receive it.
Busted: 122.50 yards
Purchased: 78.50 yards
Net YTD: 44.00 yards busted!
