I really did sew this week, but most of it was sewing together bits and pieces that have already been counted on the stash report. It didn't help that Connecting Threads had marked down some of their batiks. I was unable to resist that temptation and ordered a few half yard cuts for Kiddo's Jigsaw quilt. I definitely have more then enough fabrics to choose from now, so it's time to get out of acquisition mode. Here's the report:
Used this week: 1.02 yards
Added this week: 6.5 yards
Used year to date: 42.5 yards
Added year to date: 60.25 yards
Net stashed for 2011: 17.75 yards
My objective this year is to use more then I buy. I think I can still manage to make that objective, but I'm going to have to finish up some projects where the back can come from the stash.
I had not ordered batiks from Connecting Threads before these came on Tuesday. The colors are bright and the feel is nice.
Kiddo loves the colors. These all need to be scanned into the computer so we can start playing with the color layout she wants for her quilt.
