Stash Report 2011 - Week 31

Buttons were poked this week at the Fat Quarter Shop, but later in the week so that nothing landed. Next week will be a doozy, though!

And then there was the Long Beach Quilt Show yesterday. Jane and I headed over there early and spent four hours walking. I was so tired when we left at 2:30. Not used to walking so much. We had fun, though.

I picked up a bunch of patterns. If my camera charges up, "if" being the operative word here, I'll post pictures. Seems everything electronic around me is malfunctioning ... printer, cell phone, and now the camera. Even the computer is slow as molasses these days. The coffee pot also broke yesterday. I'm about to head down to McDonald's for a couple of cups to go. Note to self: Buy a coffee pot today!

Five embroidery patterns followed me home, and three or four patterns that I can make from my stash.

A couple of teeny wool kits. Also a teeny kit of fabric for a teeny pattern. I doubt there's a yard total in the kit but I'll figure it all out later.

In the meantime, I'm not changing my stash report until next week when the Marine's land .... a/k/a the boxes from the Fat Quarter Shop.

And for those of you who asked, the shops I liked best at the show were Primitive Gatherings, Pudding Stone Road, and one other one that I can't find their name anywhere, even on the receipt.

I need my coffee!

So the report is same as last week.

Year to Date:

Busted: 397.98 yards
Purchased: 431.025 yards
Net YTD: (33.045) yards busted :(

Guess it's not bad considering the quilt show!

I love it when you poke buttons! I get to see what goodies you found and not have to explain anything to DH. LOL So sorry everything is breaking around you!~ sounds like a shopping trip is next. Have a great day!

Sounds like you resisted quite well. I'm trying so hard to not even go online or into stores...

I am like you this week. A few things at LB....one kit with about 1/2nd wool, 1 yd of cute print from Beyond the Reef and that was it. I love Primitive Gathering, don't remember seeing Pudding Stone RD and have also pushed a of buttons at Fatquarters the last few days. But so far nothing in the house is kaput!

Primitive Gatherings was in CA? They're from my area! If you ever get to Wisconsin, I'll take you there! ;0)

I think we were in the Primitive Gatherings booth at the same time. Funny!
I did most of my buying Friday and spent Sat mainly revisiting my faves.

I was at the Long Beach quilt show on Saturday, too! Didn't buy as much as I thought I might, though.
