Stash Report 2010 - Weeks 37 and 38

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.

Those weekly Fat Quarter Shop specials are the highlights of my Wednesdays. I've snagged some great deals that way!

Those specials have saved me a bunch!

Hugs to you. It's so hard to have "normal" when everything is thrown out of whack. I hope you can have some peace, and time to grieve, too now that the anticipation is over.

I had to giggle when you said they have a cutter specifically with your name on it! Actually, that would be pretty cool! :-)
So sorry to read about your boss. The quilting days will come around again and then you'll be sewing like crazy! Have a good day!

You will enjoy all those fabrics!! So pretty...I love to peruse the Fat Quarter shop!

Those weekly specials get me into A LOT of trouble!! lol

I hope that you are doing better and I am very sorry to hear about Joe's passing. Take care and get some of the puppy love. It's very healing!

I see you gave yourself an unhappy face - but holy cow - did you see how much yardage you HAVE used this year so far. Kudos to you!!

Don't quit on your tracking. You've come so far! Over 360 yards busted is almost 36 queen-size quilts, if you figure 5 yards for the top and back. Even if it's donations or giveaways, it still counts. It inspires me that you're trying to keep your numbers even.

I'm very sorry for the loss of your friend.

Hugs to you and Penny.

Judy Laquidara said...

Heck, forget the rotary cutter, there's probably a college fund there for 2 or 3 Jolly children with your name on it! You can't stop reporting. All the quilters in blogland look forward to your report.

Hi Vicky,
I have been thinking of you all week. I am very sorry for your loss. I hope you are able to find peace, while it is so hard to lose someone. Hugs Chris

I just caught up with your blog and read about your boss passing. I'm so sorry. You've mentioned him on occasion and I got the impression that you really respected him. Please know my prayers are with his family and his employees.
