I was going to just give up on these reports as I'm so far behind on everything, but I'm not a quitter (nor a quilter these days). So here is a two-week report.
Awesome by Sandy Gervais for Moda - 5 yards for borders, whatever, to go with the charm packs and layer cake that came in a couple of months ago. I have no clue what I'll do with this, but these are wonderful fall fabrics that I really wanted. BTW, if any of you haven't taken advantage of the weekly specials that Kimberly has on Twitter and Facebook, you must do so. These were purchased at 40% off because I plugged in their code word at checkout. Keep an eye on the Jolly Jabber blog and you'll see the announcements on the sidebar on the Twitter feed. Just click on "Follow me on Twitter" for the feed to come up and see what the weekly special is. It's definitely a must-do!
And just to make this perfectly clear again -- I do not work for the Fat Quarter Shop! (Although I'm sure there's a rotary cutter somewhere in there dedicated just to me!)
Then another box arrived with the next installment of the Scrap Basket Surprises Quilt Club Kit. I went ahead and got the backing, too, so that's another 11.125 yards in.
Okay, this picture is lousy but I needed a picture.
Last week or maybe the week before - I've completely lost track of time now - I cut an additional 10.25 yards of thimbles/tumblers on the Go cutter. That's a total of 151 pieces cut. I need more. I need a plan. I need time in my sewing room. I need a vacation. I need ...
Busted: 363.55 yards
Purchased: 407.01 yards
Net YTD: (43.51) yards busted :(
DISCLOSURE STATEMENT: The Jolly Jabber feature today is Robyn Pandolph's new line, and there's a new BOM on there. I actually got that in as a kit at some point over the last two weeks, but have not had time to take it apart and see how much yardage is there. I will get that reported as incoming before year's end, promise!
THANK YOU to all of you who have written and emailed about Joe's passing. This has been so incredibly hard, but a sense of peace is with his family now. Thank you all so very much.
