I'm 81.625 yards in the hole for the year. Woke up this morning thinking about that. Honestly, I'm going to end the year in the hole because I keep poking buttons and I'm only stitching on needle projects now. Also, I've been spending a lot of quality quilting time sorting out the stash room. The guilt gets to me, but then I think about retirement looming in a few short years and I just go ahead and poke. It's a sad state of affairs at the LA Quilter house, I tell you; a sad state.
Market is also looming, and who knows what will strike my fancy after that. I already know I'm going to get Minick & Simpson's new line, Clermont Farms, and whatever new BOM Anne Sutton at Bunny Hill Designs will be showing, as well as some of Brenda Riddle's new line, Durham Anew from Lecien.
I decided the best way to deal with any other new fabrics that I fall in love with is to just get a kit. I tend to way overbuy if I don't know what I'm going to make out of them. Take Rouenneries, for example. I have no clue how much of that I bought but I'd wager it's over 50 yards, probably way over. Guess French General must be added to the list above. (sigh) Fig Tree always seems to follow me home, even when I vow that I have enough of it to last a lifetime. (more sighs)
It must be Moda's fault!
Meanwhile, 17 yards came to roost this week - four layer cakes, six charm packs, and two additional yards. I'm going to try to finish up Rabbits Prefer Embroidery this week so I can start cutting some of this stuff up.
