Stash Report 2011 - Week 4

Well, all things considered with the quilt show and all, my report is still in the black! It won't be next week, though. I already know that. Charlevoix yardage has hit the Fat Quarter Shop, and I ordered some tonight. But I did good on that, too. I sat down with two Minick & Simpson patterns and got exactly what I needed for both of them! Watch me cave next week and order more! There's another pattern around here somewhere but I can't put my hands on it right now. (sigh)

I took out the three kits I purchased from Stars & Scraps at the quilt show. Honestly, I thought there were only two. Anyway, those totals are also added into the numbers below along with the Triangles Quilt yardage. Other than one pattern and a couple of books, that was it.



Then ten yards went out to a friend. Hey, gotta bust it wherever you can! :)


2011 Totals:

Busted: 32.65 yards
Purchased: 25.455 yards
Net YTD: 7.195 yards busted :)

Hi Vicky,

You are doing great as you are busting more than you are buying! Okay, I'm not actually sure that is good but I know it's one of your goals. :-)

The three new kits look like fun.

What pattern and book did you pick up?

By the way. Think of us next week as we have another potential storm coming up the east coast. Sigh...

That's some serious restraint!!

Penny said...

The kit project look like they are small so you should be able to bang those out in a jiffy. You are still in the black. Way to go. Woohoo!

Positive numbers. You're doing good!

As long as you are busting, that is what counts! And that spools wall hanging looks very cute! I wouldn't have passed that up either! :)

Thank you so much for mentioning the Charlevoix fabric line! My husband is named Traverse after Traverse City, MI, so when I saw the name and the cherry fabric I knew this was a line that must be added to the stash!

Good work on busting the stash!
