Stash Report Week 31
I was at a crossroad this week as to what to work on, having finished all the applique on the first block of Angels Among Us and the first block on Judy's Star BOM. Now what?
I took a look around and decided to clean off my sewing table. Since pink and brown fabric was strewn everywhere, that was first up.
Only the borders and backing count as busts, 6.75 yards. There's another 4.5 yards boxed up and ready to be mailed out tomorrow. So 11.25 yards busted this week! This is the first bust since Week 23 and it feels good! Prairie Paisley Patchwork Party get ready; you're up next to finish!
Oh, no purchases this week! A fabric shipment is already on its way to me, so I won't get too excited about this week - bookended between the Long Beach quilt show and an unused coupon from The Fat Quarter Shop! I mean, I couldn't let a perfectly good coupon go to waste, could I?
Judy is about to go positive on her numbers! I have a l-o-n-g way to go. I have started pulling out fabric that I know I won't use and will box it up this week. And recycling all those Fat Quarter Shop boxes! LOL. If I do that a little each month, then I'll be more organized and will be able to more easily find fabric. I haven't a clue what to do with the fabric, though. I figured that if I don't want it, probably no one else will either. Maybe grab box drawings for those of you who make charity quilts and scrappies? There will probably be no piece smaller than a half yard. Suggestions would be welcomed!
I'm heading back into the sewing room to assemble Patchwork Party! Baby steps!
