Stash Report Week 27

Nothing busted again, but I'm planning on serious busts starting Monday. Today will be cooking and doing some cleaning, and I seriously doubt I'll even touch the Bernina.

I did try to work on a BOM block yesterday, but the one attempt at chain piecing some HSTs was a disaster. I hadn't secured the bobbin in and had a bird's nest of thread on the back of the blocks. So those seams were unsewed and there they sit. Maybe today.

I thought I was purchase-free this week, but spotted an unopened box last night. A tower of Shirtings and a pattern. These fabrics will go well with patriotics or in the blue/shirtings quilt AND the basket blocks. So a good purchase. I love getting bundles - or towers, as I call them. Such a neat package of fabrics, but it's a lot of fabric. In this instance, 10 yards. Yikes!

Penny was such a big help to me yesterday while I was sweeping the patio. I swept all the leaves up in a pile and went inside to get a trash bag. Came back out and she was having a ball running through the pile and scattering them everywhere! It was funny ... she's funny ... yes, I had to sweep again. :) While I was on the phone with Jane last night, Penny decided she should play right by me with her talking ball and bark at it. She made us both laugh. :)

Year-to-Date Totals:

Busted: 124.75 yards
Purchased: 428.875 yards
Net YTD: <304.125> yards

That talking ball - the gift that keeps on giving, lol!
I love FQ towers too but I can't bring myself to use them. That's why I'm so happy they came out with charm packs - much less expensive.
Have a wonderful day.

You have been busy since I last checked on you. Let me know when you get all this food cooked up, and I will schedule a visit, lol. I agree with Judy L, your stash reports are awesome, just glad they aren't mine. I am trying despartely to get rid of some of my fabric.

Puppies are so much fun! Although, there is a lot to be said for aged pups who enjoy 'watching' while things are done.Mine especially enjoy watching from a quilt cocoon! :)

I think all quilters love to get those packages of fabric in the mail, I know I do!!That is half the fun. It is like Christmas! Love your blog.
