I ordered a fat quarter bundle of Connecting Threads "Dots". Look at all those colors. No plans for this fabric, but it just begs to be used doesn't it?
There was a coupon for 50% off Halloween fabrics at the Fat Quarter Shop in the Quilting Bloggers' newsletter last week. Since I have no Halloween fabrics in the stash, it seemed like a good opportunity to fill in that hole a bit.
Most of what was ordered was half yard cuts, but I ordered several yards of the orange, black and green prints in the second picture. Again, no plans for these fabrics, but they do beg to be used in something fun.
Though there no quilt shops in Eureka Springs, there was a very nice one in Siloam Springs. Drama Teen and I took a detour off the main highway to check out Sagger Creek Quilts and Yarn Works. It was well worth the detour. I don't have a lot of orange or black prints in my stash, and no gray at all.
I loved the lizard print and bought a yard of it, the rest are all half yard cuts. Again no plan for these additions, but I was considering what colors might be left in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge as I bought these 6 pieces.
Now for the painful part, the stash report.
Used last week: 0.77 yards
Added last week: 25.5 yards
Used For 2012: 35.23 yards
Added for 2012: 319.88 yards
Net stashed for 2012: 284.65 yards
I still hope to get in some significant sewing before the end of the year. Even with the holidays coming up, I do have several days of vacation that have to be taken or else I loose them. So maybe I'll be able to work in a few stitching days between now and the end of the year. Improving the "used for 2012" column is my goal, not to quit buying fabric.
