Stash Report 2010 - Week 32

I'm not feeling very well this weekend, so I'm going to post this now just in case I sleep all day tomorrow.

Since August is my no-guilt month, I took full advantage of it!



I gathered up some Clermont Farms precuts - two layer cakes, two jelly rolls, and four charm packs. I'm waiting for the yardage to hit, and then I'll be done with this line of Minick & Simpson. Can't wait to see what they're cooking up for Fall Market!

Then I found some neat stripes from the Wee Woodland line by Keiki for Moda. I call these subtle stripes, and I love incorporating them into quilts.

I picked the backing for the Fig Tree Club kit that came in last week - from the Fresh Cottons line. I've so truly enjoyed the Fig Tree Club, and have signed up for the new one. My Fig Tree stash runneth over!

What else?

Oh, yeah, the Luna Notte kit by Moda! Oh, my goodness, this thing is gorgeous! I'm just waiting for the 108" fabrics to come in to purchase the backing.

And last but not least, although they haven't come in yet, I ordered up some '30s fabrics. I seem to be so attracted to those lately. Anyway, those will arrive next week so I'll report them now.

Purchased this week -- 48.73 yards.

I also busted some fabrics for give-aways here and in my guild, and filled another box for Judy's charity quilts. Goodness, I need to mail those out this week before I have to borrow Chad's new truck to get them to the mailing place! Busted this week -- 66.125 yards.

Year-To-Date:

Busted: 298.75 yards
Purchased: 372.055 yards
Net YTD: (73.305) yards busted :(

I'm determined to finish this year even. ROFLOL. Kimberly needs to quit enabling me!!

Oh, and Penny was busy this week busting her paper towel stash!

Hope you feel better!
I felt guilty over my 18 yards so now I feel soooo much better ;)
My pups prefer Kleenex to paper towels, much more mess for their pleasure lol

You bought some beautiful fabrics! I especially like the Luna Notte line. I must have missed it, but why is August your guilt-free shopping month? Perhaps I need to talk to my husband about having one of those.

I like the idea of a guilt-free month! Hmm, wonder if I could stretch it to 'months'? ;-) Hope you feel better soon and get a chance to play with your new stash!

Quilt Hollow said...

Oh man...I like your kind of shopping!

i don't know, Vicky...the month is only half way over, so i think you need to enjoy yourself some more. Remember there's only 2 more weeks to spend, spend,spend! Looks like you've got a great stash addition there.

(and don't forget the new line comming out from the French General)

I like the idea of guilt-free month. Actually I just like the idea of buying fabric.

Yvonne said...

Love your goodies....I hope you feel better very quickly!

jaybird said...

sorry you don't feel well!! being sick never makes quilting fun! ... but yay for "no-guilt month".... can we just chalk 2010 up to a "no-guilt year" for me? ;-)

Ginny said...

I know you aren't looking for comments like this, but I have to let you know I appreciate your charitable spirit. You are a great example. Thank you.

Carol said...

Hope you're feeling better! OMG what wonderful LOOT! I'm loving Clermont Farms...I've toyed with the Fig Tree Club...are you going to push me over the edge? Do I need to send Miss Penny a new roll of paper towels? LOL!

Suzanne said...

I've never heard of "no guilt" time...may have to try it myself! Lol

jillquilts said...

Those pups just love busting, don't they!! lol

Gorgeous fabrics!! I'm so jealous because I am trying soooo hard to be good!!! ;)

jillquilts said...

Forgot to add... FEEL BETTER!!!

Amy said...

Great choices on the fabrics. Looking forward to seeing your projects.

Kathie said...

I like your idea of a no guilt month. I try and be guilt free when we go on vacation somewhere. After all have to visit those new quilt shops and I probably won't be back so I buy what I like.

Hope you're feeling better. I can't believe you're talking about Fall Market already! I'm trying to resist several of the lines that are coming out right now! I don't need any more temptation.

mascanlon said...

Feel better. But my goodness you had a fun week! And you pushed me right over the edge on the Fig Tree Cub. For me I really didn't add any this week except the piddling little bit in the FQS Christmas BOM that came. But I pushed a bunch of buttons on Friday so next week...

katie z. said...

That was a great give-away bust!

Loretta said...

Vicky, I hope you start feeling better soon, so you can enjoy your birthday next weekend.I think it's Sunday--is it? Whichever day it is, I hope it is wonderful.
Sending good and healthy thoughts your way.

I have pre ordered the stack of FQ's from Clermont Farms, can't wait to see what patterns M & S have been working on for this collection! She was doing one with lots of berries/cherries but only giving sneak peeks!
