Early Stash Report - Week 44

I'm so excited. My vacation begins Saturday, and I'm going HOME! For those of you who don't know where that is, Louisiana! Where everyone talks right and I don't have an accent! :) I'll be gone for a week.

No boxes came in this week, so my report remains the same as last week. I'm in the hole 158.865 yards. Still way the best report I've ever had for this time of year.

However .....

Isn't there always something else with me?

..... I poked a bunch of buttons this week. I really have to say that it's all Kimberly's fault. They have this feature where they taunt us with new things coming in the future. Oh, don't look puzzled. You know exactly what I'm talking about. It's that feature that says "Click here to receive notification when this item is available." Oh, yeah, THAT little button!

Of course, poking that button months and months before something is available is kinda fun! Apparently I was poking away some months ago - and I received a ton of "notifications" in the last couple of days. Sheesh!

And I totally forgot that I wouldn't be here next week. No way was I going to let Fat Quarter Shop boxes languish on my doorstep! Not a problem. I just asked them to hold and ship later, which they were happy to do! Of course, Kimberly asked me if I wanted it all in one box! ROFLOL. Yeah, I have a dolly that I can use to hoist that puppy over the door sill and into the foyer. A really big dolly!

So there you have it. Nothing ventured or gained this week. Maybe next week, too! But batten down the hatches for the week after that when the box(es) arrive!

Hope everyone gets lots of sewing done next week. I'll definitely have to figure out a give-away when I get back. Stay tuned!
