Stash Report 2010 - Week 41

I have to do some serious moving around of stuff in my sewing room and stash room, so I decided to do my stash report today. Then I can get all of this put away.

Do you know what 100.58 yards look like?



Now you do!



Oops! I forgot to put the bolt of Clermont Farms in the picture. Now it's complete!

This is everything that came in this week, plus that kit that I hadn't counted before.

Starting on the left:

- The Twinkle kit for the Second Annual Fig Tree Club. Love those Fig Tree fabrics! And a layer cake and charm packs of Bliss. I probably need some yardage to go with those. Yes? No? You've got to be kidding?

- Clermont Farms yardage, lots and lots of yardage. One can never have too much Minick & Simpson!! That's my story anyway! And a Hope tower and tons of yardage. I spotted the Hope fabric when you all were listing your favorite fabrics last week in the give-away. You know who you are! Don't deny it! It's all your fault!

- That red, white and blue pail could only mean Minick & Simpson. It's the La Playa kit! I missed it the first time they made some up, so grabbed it pronto when they rekitted it! I just love that pattern! Below that is the finishing kit for the Pennsylvania Dutch BOM that a group of us having been working on all year out of, what else, M&S fabric! Then below that is the Prairie Women's Sewing Circle. This was a quarterly club offered at the Fat Quarter Shop that must be sold out because it's not on there any more. Lots of beautiful Civil War fabrics in that package.

- The last section over is that Robyn Pandolph kit that I finally got counted in, and a few BOMs installments. See those polka dots! That's the Tiny Town BOM by Anne Sutton that was offered by the Fat Quarter Shop. I haven't started it yet, but I'm itching to get stitching on it. I am going to personalize it, putting my old high school name on one of the buildings, probably change out that puppy to a doxie. I can't wait to start!

There's just one more little thing I skipped in the picture. See that lonesome charm pack there with the yellow square on top!



Charlevoix!!

It's official! I just died and went to Heaven!!!

Year-To-Date:

Busted: 363.55 yards
Purchased: 507.59 yards
Net YTD: (144.09) yards busted :(

To see how much better everyone else in the world did, go to Judy's Patchwork Times. Those folks are real stash busters!

I am envious. Your stash looks like so much fun!

Sharon said...

Here's the good news, Charlvoix doesn't get released until January so that can go into your 2011 report! hahahah. It looks fabulous, but I have to get some yardage of the Clermont before I get into this one. Have fun reorganizing and playing with all your new fabrics.

It certainly doesn't look like 100 yards! So I suppose you are going to Mackinaw Island in May?

Dee said...

That looks like so much fun! I've never had that much fabric come in before, but it looks luscious. You must be on creativity overload thinking of all the things you'd like to make now.

Mary-Kay said...

That's a lot of fabric! The Charlevoix is really pretty but it's not what I expected. I thought it would be something to do with boats or something. Oh well, I'll still be getting some of it soon, I hope!.

CaraQuilts said...

Yup an excellent retirement fund if I ever saw one! :)

Vickie E said...

I am officially jealous. However, I have a hefty FQ shop order coming myself ...so I best knock it off. LOL that 20% coupon was quite a motivator. Kim is awesome too..but you already know that.

Penny said...

(Sigh) That looks so wonderful. You really must teach me how to push that buy button. I still can't do it. I also realized that you will have lots and lots of projects to last well into your retirement. Good planning.

Simone de Klerk said...

So much loveliness for you! Can't wait to recieve my last PD package!

julieQ said...

Enjoy!! Just so pretty...enjoy, dear Vicki!!

Tamera said...

How much fun?!?!?

It all looks wonderful. Hope you have a blast quilting it! :-)

pdudgeon said...

oh my goodness! that stash enhancement looks like so much fun bundled up and sitting there.

Infinity Quilter/Knitter said...

Well now that hardly looks like 100 yards of fabric! It adds up so quickly doesn't it?!?! Enjoy!

mascanlon said...

Love looking at all that fabric, where on earth did you find a charm pack of that Charlvoix! I'm trying to talk my DH into Mackinaw in May. He's from OK so had no idea, I showed him the porch and he's amost on board!

Jamie in Louisiana said...

As much as I want to have a good net stash report by year end, I would sacrifice for a delivery like this. Thank you for sharing.

Deb said...

When you said 100 yards, I was OMG, but when you actually see it in a picture, it really doesn't look like that much. I did my fair share of purchasing Fri/Sat, so I need to give it a rest for a while. I'm actually running out of places to put the "stash". have fun

Carol said...

What an absolutely wonderful addition to your retirement fund...you know they keep telling us we must plan ahead...LOL! Love Twinkle...I'll bet mine comes this week. I LOVE Hope! Gorgeous!

Judy Laquidara said...

I want you to move in with me when you retire. I want to cook for you . . and while you're eating dinner I'm going to rummage through your stash and help myself to all this yummy fabric.

jillquilts said...

I think there is only one thing to say.... oh my goodness!!!! :D

Diane said...

Reading your blog makes me seriously consider going back to work so I can buy more fabric. LOL I LOVE reading your blog!

Quilt Hollow said...

I'm so flippin envious of your gorgeous NEW stash!!! It would be so fun to shop your closet!!

Julie said...

100 yards, oh my. Somehow I thought it would take up more space. . . Have fun organizing your stash and planning new projects. (Glad you bought some Hope.)

Cyn said...

Wonderful new stash!

Thanks so much for the pictures and the writeup. I did a bit of stash enhancement myself this weekend but not 100 yards!

I think I must be one of the few who is trying to build her stash since I just started quilting. LOL!

Cynthia
