Stash Report 2011 - Week 10

I started another charity box for fabric and managed to put 30 yards in there so far. Must purge here!

One quilt kit came in from the Fat Quarter Shop. Buttercup Way is so darling! It uses Buttercup fabric by Figtree and Brenda Riddle's adorable Pathway & Crossroads pattern! 16.125 yards including backing.



I love Brenda's patterns. She is one of my top favorite pattern designers. Can you name at least two of the others? Might be a prize involved. I'm just saying.

Will add more later to this post. As I approached my desk this morning, I dumped the entire cup of hot coffee, and a good portion of it hit my mouse. You know, that new mouse I just got a few weeks ago? I quickly dried everything and changed the battery, but it's gone bonkers. It's working in reverse! Seriously! No, I'm not delusional! I'm already a left-handed mouser, and to get the cursor to move to the right, I have to aim it left. To go up, I have to aim down. I'm totally confused here! Didn't want to get out today, but definitely will be standing with my nose pressed to the door of Office Depot when it opens. I hope they have more old lady mice there!

2011 Totals:

Busted: 84.16 yards
Purchased: 111.755 yards
Net YTD: (27.615) yards busted :(

Later.......

Oh man on the mouse!!! Love that pattern, too! Here I was thinking that I would be able to nail the pattern designer question, but I am totally drawing a blank. :(

i also suggest a new coffee mug in your future (with a lid!) LOL.

Perry said...

I will venture to say your favorite pattern designers are Brenda Riddle, Joanna Figuera, and Blackbird Designs. There is another person you are fond of if I remember correctly, but can't remember off hand, lol. Have a great week!

Hmm, Minick & Simpson & Three Sisters?

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

How about Judy L and Laurie and Polly? Sorry your little mouse went swimming! Hope Office Depot has a new one! Have a good day!~ Love the new fabrics too! :-) maybe I should change to Joanna? lol

mascanlon said...

Well Minick and Simpson and Blackbird Designs are my guesses....but we have so many to love. There's Julie Herman (isn't it fun to see her breakout like this!) and Carrie Nelson and .....Blackbird designs and Joanna

ladybug said...

So sad to hear about the mouse! I'm in the market for one myself!
I think your fav pattern designers are Anne Sutton and Carrie Nelson! If you'd asked who the fav fabric designers were, I'd have to say Fig Tree, French General and Minnick.... just sayin'!

Darlene said...

Pattern designers or fabric designers?

Pattern designers - I'm guessing Judy Laquidara & Carrie Nelson.

Tamera said...

Sorry to hear about your mouse. :-(

Baskets Of Quilts said...

Hate when computer items break- they are never the same. I would guess your other fav pattern designers are carrie Nelson & Joanna figuera for fig tree quilts.

CaraQuilts said...

Minnick & Simpson will be one, I'm guessing. Not sure the other, maybe Blackbird Designs?

Leah S said...

One of them has to be Judy, right?! ;)

Minick & Simpson, no brainer there.

Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill. You've said you follow her like a groupie. :D

Lynne in Hawaii said...

Love your incoming fabric and pattern! I believe you are partial to the following designers:
Judy Laquidara, Carrie Nelson and Anne Sutton.

Sorry about the coffee. They say to put cell phones in a bag of rice to get all the liqued - I wonder if that works for Mice as well.

Becky said...

Hope that your mouse issues are taken care of. There are so many wonderful patterns designers. I'm thinking two of your favorites are Judy Laquidera and Anne Sutton from Bunny Hill. Have you considered selling some of your stash on your blog? Set a price and seller pays the postage. Several bloggers have done that to help reduce their stash. Have a wonderful week!!! Tell Penny, hi from Rusty!

Gwen said...

Minnick and Simpson and Anne Sutton are two more that I know you like. Both patterns and fabric! Hugs, Gwen

Dianne said...

I know you definitely love French General and Minick & Simpson. I love them too...

Laura said...

Minick and Simpson and Anne Sutton? But I know you like Judy Laquidara, too. Hmmm.

Deb said...

Minick & Simpson, Blackbird Designs and maybe Carrie Nelson? Watch your blog all the time, and do you think I can remember? Getting too old!

Quilt Monkey said...

Let's see - I'd say two of your top favorite fabric designers are Minnick & Simpson and Robyn Pandolf (sp??). Sorry about your mouse! It's amazing how used to them we get. It's tough enough to get used to a new one - now you have to do it again!

Anonymous said...

My guess - Minnick & Simpson and Blackbird Desogns.
