Since it's time to write the stash report, it must be Sunday. I've been off the grid since Tuesday for various reasons, the main one being Drama Teen's participation in the State Science Fair. Wednesday night was filled with last minute preparations, then we left early Thursday morning. Unfortunately the hotel where we stayed had Internet problems, no one was able to log on all weekend. We all had fun even though DT didn't place. Just to get to go to the state fair was a huge honor, especially as a 7th grader. That's the youngest student allowed to attend.
While DT was participating in the science fair, I found the local quilt shop in Ada.
The Santa Fe Depot is housed in an old train depot. No photos of the inside unfortunately. It has a very roomy and gorgeous interior. Lots of beautiful quilts on the walls, a nice selection of fabrics, books, rulers, etc. The building dates from the early 1900's. I spent a great morning just roaming around looking while DT was competing. Unfortunately for the stash report, I didn't just look, I bought.
A few fat quarters came home with me, along with a gorgeous black print and a dark blue print. One of the big holes in my stash is large pieces that can be used as backgrounds in my quilts, so I bought lots of each of those two. The stash report isn't pretty, but I'm hoping by filling a few holes, I'll actually be able to make more with what I've bought previously. So here's the damage:
Used last week: 0.41 yards
Added last week: 14.5 yards
Used for 2012: 5.16 yards
Added for 2012: 116 yards.
Net Stashed for 2012: 108. 84 yards
I'm hoping to spend today sewing so maybe I can dig out a little. I probably won't make it to positive numbers this year, but if I can use more than last year, I'll be happy.
