This week wasn't as bad as I though it would be. But only because two more boxes haven't landed yet. Next week -- uh oh! But it's okay. Repeat after me ... August is my no-guilt buy month! :)
The July shipment of the 2010 Fig Tree Club arrived. What is it about Joanna's fabrics that are so appealing to me? It must be those soft colors - they're like pastel but not pastel. Does that make sense? I don't remember if I signed up yet for the Second Annual Fig Tree Club. Kimberly, help!
Anyway, this adorable Blooming Meadows quilt from Fresh Cottons is 6.37 yards. I'm going to stash dive on those Fig Tree shelves for backing - unless I cave and go ahead and poke another button. It's August, after all!
The other box that arrived was the one with BOMs. I'll be making the Pennsylvania Dutch this week for sure. And before someone asks *again* - no, I don't count BOM monthly packages in my stash report. So there's a lot of sewing going on with no busts. I do, however, count the finishing kits and backings both in and out.
Went to Jane's last night for Sarah's birthday dinner. Yummy steaks! Jane's sweet DH cooks the best steaks ever! And a gorgeous birthday cake, but I passed on that because it was - gasp - chocolate! Okay, I admit it. I'm not much of a chocolate person .... I know. Weird, huh?
Penny is plumb worn out from playing with Skippy. We walked this morning, and she climbed right back on her perch to sleep more. She didn't even get down when I put the Fig Tree there to photo. I can't believe I actually got a picture without her head stuck in it! (LOL, I have to lighten the pictures so much to get her to show up.)
I'm going to dig around in the stash room and come up with something for a give-away. I'll get that posted a little later. Pennsylvania Dutch ladies, I'll get that post up after the give-away ends next week. And I also need to stick some more fabric in the charity box. Hey, a bust is a bust, no matter how!
