Head on over to Judy's Patchwork Times to see what real quilters do with their stashes! My stash is just hibernating. Nothing in, nothing out again this week. I guess I'm not a real quilter!
I don't know what's wrong with me lately. I've filled up my cart at the Fat Quarter Shop at least twice and then forgot about it. Kimberly is going to think I've abandoned her!! Hello, Kimberly? Remember me?
I'm so glad this sort of thing doesn't count on Judy's stash report, but I ordered some dies for my cutter, and yesterday I ordered a counted cross stitch kit from ehandcrafts.com. I'm going to start with one of the Anniversaries of the Heart by Blackbird Designs. Probably way over my head, but I'll do it! It will just have to be my learning piece.
This year I had a short list of a few things I want to learn or reacquaint myself on doing. One was embroidery. I got that small Rabbits Prefer Embroidery by Anne Sutton at BunnyHill done earlier this year. Although I have a lot more to learn, at least I know I can do it. Second on my list was counted cross stitch, so that stuff is ordered. The last thing is hand quilting. I read all of Laurie Simpson's tutorials at the Minick & Simpson blog, and I'm going to jump in and give it a whirl. I have several small tops here on which I can practice. So at least I'm trying to get through my list this year. Next year I'll work more on these three things. Oh, and quilting!
I have packages in the back of the QuiltMobile that need mailing. If I owe you one, they'll go to UPS today. Sorry, but it seems like every spare moment was in the dental chair these past two weeks.
So my numbers have not changed:
Busted: 298.75 yards
Purchased: 372.055 yards
Net YTD: (73.305) yards busted :(
There's always next week. Hey, we have a long weekend coming up. Maybe I can get a couple of backings done and get those off to the quilter! I feel a bust coming on!
