It rained last night. Granted it was only for about 5 minutes, but it was rain. It's supposed to cool off just a bit mid week. It's really sad to think that mid to high 90's constitutes "cooler" weather. Even with the heat, I can't say that I'm ready for winter. We had record cold last winter and I'm in no hurry to have that back. There is a bright side, it's been too hot to do much outside, so I haven't felt guilty about staying in and sewing.
The stash report looks a bit anemic this week. The Flurry quilt is under construction, I'm pinning and sewing all the rows together but I've already counted most of that fabric.
Used this week: 0.87 yards

I'm slowly digging out from my fabric buying binge last weekend. More out then in this year, which is way better then last year's numbers. I'm only about 4 yards short of using as much fabric as was used in 2010. I'm hoping to piece a back for Flurry out of left overs from last year's Charming Christmas Cardinals so I don't have to buy any additional fabric. I should be able to make my stash busting goal this year.
