Stash Report Week 26

Simply Sophisticated BOM makers, go HERE for entry into the prize drawing this evening. Good luck!


The year is half over, as Judy pointed out. It's time for me to bust - well, after this reporting of purchases. And maybe next week's reporting, too.

I'm about to get back into the sewing room, if for no other reason than I'm out of project tubs and I'm NOT buying any more. It's time to finish up some UFOs and recycle those! I have two or three BOMs that the blocks are all made. Those need to be assembled, and the finishing kits will provide some much needed busts. Well, they will be worked on after I clean out the garage and do some things around the house. Hopefully all of that will get done today so that next weekend I can pretend I'm a quilter (instead of a fabric collector) and actually get some things done!

This week the Frosted Windowpanes kit came in that I was anxiously awaiting! It's going to be tough today not to sit down and play with that, but other matters are needing to be done. Have I mentioned I need to clean out the garage? I thought so. I excel at procrastination! Anyway, the Frosted Windowpanes kit is 12.5 yards and is going to be gorgeous!

Penny had her vet appointment yesterday. She gained another 1.5 lbs, and is now a big, whopping 6.6 lbs! The puppy shots made her sleepy, so I had the rare opportunity to snuggle with her for a while yesterday afternoon. She's usually not still long enough for snuggles! This morning as soon as I opened her kennel door, she dashed upstairs to see if the puppy was still in the mirror in my bedroom! I think I'm going to be disappointed when she doesn't see it there any more. It's too cute to watch her. She's at such a gonky stage now, both in looks and action!

Year-to-Date Totals:

Busted: 124.75 yards
Purchased: 418.875 yards
Net YTD: <294.125> yards

It took every ounce of strength for me not to get that Frosted Windowpanes kit. It is going to be gorgeous!

The kits you have purchased are amazing, I know I wouldn't have the time to make them so I will enjoy watching the process through your posting!

Julia said...

Your posts always make me smile! ;0)

I hope you get all your chores done today so you can get back to sewing!!!

Nan said...

I spend too much of my time being a fabric collector and not a quilter, too. I understand totally! There are way too many fabrics that call my name, dang it!
Penny is cute, cute, cute! I so enjoy seeing pics of her.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

You just gave me the giggles. . . thinking of Penny dashing upstairs to see "her puppy friend" in the mirror. . . ah, these are sweet days! (But then . . . every day with a dog is a sweet day!) :o)

That puppy is SO CUTE!!!! She's a bundle of love for you, I can tell. Hey, at least you still post. I'm one of those that stopped way long ago. Oh well. I'll try again next week; you and me together.

Hi Penny! She is adorable :)
No wonder your quilt projects don't come along as fast as you wish! lol

Bon said...

You've only purchased 406 yards this year? What's wrong? LOL You are so funny.

That Penny is just so adorable.

julieQ said...

What a darling!!! Ok, second half of the year we will use what we and you!

Judy Laquidara said...

I am so enjoying Penny! :) I crack up thinking about her running upstairs to see if the puppy is still there. She's probably wondering why she's stuck in the crate and the other puppy is upstairs with you! :) Speaking of cracking up . . love that stash report!

Debbie said...

Oh My Gosh, Vicky,
Penny is so cute I can't stand it!! Please tell us all how old she is now.......and if she still has that yummy puppy breath!!

Dianah said...

I love seeing you stash report each week. Yours is the first I check. I always laugh and think "good she's honest about it!" I can't wait to see your window pain kit. I want it but know I'd never make it.

suz said...

With all the quilts you produce in a year, I don't know how you think you are a procrastinator - I find you so inspring! Your puppy is so cute!

Perry said...

Penny is the cutest thing! I can see where you wouldn't get anything done. I don't feel so bad about the "tiny" purchases I make when I see what you do, lol. I intend to catch up on the BOM from the fq shop for next month's drawing.
