This week was brutal for incoming, but it could have been a lot worse!
I cut, prepped, and shared a total of 32 yards. That's a lot of fabric moving around in one week. Except for one yard of another line, everything was Civil War type fabrics. I say "type" because some of it was aged muslin, but it's all going toward the same projects.
However, incoming was 54.675 yards. Ewww...... stinky numbers! The newest French General fabric came home to roost, FaLaLaLa. Gorgeous stuff! When the yardage hits, I'll have to get some for borders and backing. :)
Also in were a lot of Civil War fabrics. I pretty much raided the Fat Quarter Shop's shelves of everything I thought would work in these projects. Unfortunately for my stash report, during the raid I spotted the box of Judie Rothermel fat quarters. Wow, that was one exciting box to open! Penny thought so, too!
There were 100 FQs in the box, but some are already missing! I'd wager the rest will be gone within the next month! I'm on a roll here! I don't see this box on the FQS site now, but Kimberly might be able to get some more. It'd be worth asking the question if anyone is interested. A great buy!
So that's my week! It was a busy one at work, and then was busy here at night. I'm feeling so good about what's being accomplished here - especially after the awful past year. I'll get busy again in another month or two, but for now I'm going to make hay while the sun shines!
My brother is again facing some medical issues, which I hope are not serious, but we're all a bit nervous about them. More testing next week. Then the potential for flooding down in South Louisiana also has everyone nervous. Don thinks his home is safe, but we're worried about my nephew's home. Just praying things turn out well on both fronts.

Even though I'm in the hole, I'm real happy about everything quilt-related at the LA Quilter house!!! High fives!!!
