Stash Report 2011 - Week 25

I hang my head in shame ... I slid backwards ... I tried to be strong ... it's all the Fat Quarter Shop's fault! (Hee-hee, I love blaming Kimberly!) Actually, both of these have been on my list ever since I first glimpsed them in the Coming Soon section months ago. Well, they've come now. What can I say?



The first is the 2011 Designer Mystery Block of the Month from the FQS. The first block arrived along with the finishing kit and backing. I love it that Kimberly sends those at the beginning of the BOM! Anyway, that was 14.75 yards. A lot of gorgeous Strawberry Fields by Fig Tree.

The second b-i-g box was FaLaLaLaLa by French General, a couple of jelly rolls and some yardage including a backing. That was 21.5 yards. I know that seems like a lot, but I already have a tower. I should be able to get a couple of quilts out of this.

The give-away last week helped some with 35.875 yards gone. Guess I need to have another give-away or sew faster!!

Year to Date:

Busted: 290.68 yards
Purchased: 350.025 yards
Net YTD: (59.345) yards busted :(

I'll miss next week's Stash Report as I'm taking a few days of R&R. Hopefully I'll come home refreshed and ready to rumble -- er, sew!

Glad to see you taking a few days off. Enjoy yourself! Your net numers aren't so bad, considering where they were at this time previous years, right? :)

Dianne said...

Hey...my numbers were shot to H**L last week too because of that same first box! No regrets though... :)

Connie said...

Oh, such pretty fabrics. I continue to be amazed at your "used" numbers.

Great fabric lines! Have a safe vacation and enjoy yourself! :)

Those fabrics are beautiful! And you only live once, if you have room for them in your house, why not? If you don't have room, maybe you need an extra house. :)

You're getting no censor from here! I could afford it there are some lines out now, or coming soon where'd I buy 30 yards of easy.

Beautiful fabrics. Your yardage going out is pretty amazing, even if you aren't quite in the black.

Sadly my order from Fat Quarter Shop is being held hostage due to the Canada Post Strike..I sure hope they settle soon...
I've been waiting to get my hands on this stuff for months.

Megan said...

I love Strawberry Fields. I finished a baby quilt made with that not too long ago and it was so, well, yummy. LOL!

Sharon said...

You still use a lot, and these are fabulous lines. I don't blame you for splurging!
