It's futile for me to report stash busting any more because I'm not busting any. I keep sewing and sewing, and I've got two or three projects within striking distance of finishing and busting. The problem is I keep buying things.
I thought I was being so good this week, but then stuff happened.
I purchases two little towers of plaid brushed cottons from Sharon at Red Geranium Cottage, but that was 6 yards. I grabbed a piece of fabric on sale from The Fat Quater Shop, 5 yards. Then the first block and the backing came in for Angels Among us from Kimberly, and that backing was 4 yards. See where this is headed? And I haven't even gotten to the Long Beach quilt show yet.
10.25 yards in a kit at the show, a quilt for my bed. Another 6 yards of batiks - wow, that added up quickly. In Brenda Riddle's booth, four half-yard cuts, 2 yards. Osnaberg, 1 yard.
I guess I'll keep reporting (sigh) because the busts are going to happen fast and furiously, but it's discouraging. I've never kept track before. Judy keeps reminding me that I'm buying less because I'm keeping track. It's true, but all the same ...
Busted: 190.5 yards
Purchased: 508.0 yards
Net YTD: <317.5> yards busted
Off to finish up a binding for a friend, and then I'm going to bust something today if it kills me!
