Stash Report 2010 - Week 35

Stop the presses .... I piddled around with my stash yesterday! Yes, I did! I have to make one block for a joint gift quilt, and I decided to dig into my Robyn Pandolph stash. It's been a while since I've done that. Some pretty fabrics up in that cabinet.

Anyway, when I opened up this piece, I found that I had obviously used it once before on applique! There was a hunk cut out of it! I had to laugh. Most folks might have just cut a strip off to use. No, I had to leave the piece intact and just cut what I needed. Now there are two hunks missing from this yardage. At this rate, I'll probably still be cutting hunks out of it at The Home!



And I had some good yardage use yesterday. 44.5 yards busted for charity quilts! Nothing incoming, but I do have an order on its way from the Fat Quarter Shop. A small kit for a child's quilt with backing, and I forget what else. Not too much damage done, I don't think. Wait, maybe there are two orders winging their way to me. Uh oh uh oh uh oh...

Anyway, here are the totals.

Year-To-Date:

Busted: 343.25 yards
Purchased: 372.055 yards
Net YTD: (28.805) yards busted :(

Last year at Labor Day I was 327.625 yards in the red. Looking good, Vic!!!

Oh, speaking of the Fat Quarter Shop, check out this new book, A Path to the Civil War. I can't wait to get my hands on it!!!!!

It has been fun watching your numbers of yardage....I think mine just keep climbing and I haven't counted. How did your dental appt go?

Way to go on your numbers! And when I applique, I am also guilty of just cutting off a hunk.

Carol said...

Oh I'm so excited...someone else that cuts hunks out just like me! LOL!

SpinningStar said...

You have great numbers, especially compared to last years. Giving yardage for charity is also good.

I find missing hunks and can't even remember where they went! I still have some of that fabric collection. My friend and I bought every piece we could find.

Hi Vicky,
Your numbers don't add up.
Busted: 243.25 yards
Purchased: 372.055 yards
Net YTD: (28.805) yards busted :(

372.055 less the 243.25 (very impressive!) is a 128.805 gain. I think it's a typo but your usage is still amazing to me. I still am going in the other direction. Jane.

Vicky said...

Yes, it was a typo. 343.25 yards busted, not 243.25. I won't admit here that I do numbers for a living. Thank you SO much for checking my math.

CaraQuilts said...

That's a HUGE improvement over last year so way to go!!

quiltingnana said...

I cut hunks like that too

Laurie said...

A job and you still manage to bust a lot of yardage! Great numbers.

jillquilts said...

Congrats on your bust and your numbers! I guess I am going to keep looking pitiful all by myself! lol

Perry said...

Been catching up on your blog again, and find, as usual, you are busy as all get out. At least you are attempting to bust stash, lol. Don't you just hate dental work? It ruins your days before and after it is done for what seems forever. Hopefully it will all be a faint memory soon. Sorry about your work friend. I know that has bothered you for a long time as well. Take care of yourself, and happy birthday belatedly! I dont' blame you, birthdays after 60 are the pits!!!!
