Life was good this weekend. Today is the last day of Drama Teen's Spring Break. However, as she pointed out, the next 2 weeks are only 4 days each as she is out of school for Good Friday and Easter Monday. So two weeks of just 4 days where actual school attendance is required. She's going to take it hard when she has to go for 5 days running.
Spring Break has been a laid back one for us this year. My Guy had a commitment last week that kept him out of the office for 4 days, so he couldn't take off much time this week. Add in that our original plans got snowed on, literally, we ended up just driving a bit to places where we've never been before. That included a couple of new to me quilt shops. One is known for it's black and white prints, something that is almost completely absent in my stash.
Of course there were butterfly prints that had to come home with me, as well as a couple of other beauties.
The second shop is known for it's brights, my all time favorite fabrics. Add in that fabric on the bolt was $2 off, I couldn't resist bringing home a few yards of those either.
The pinks didn't photograph too well, but the two on the end are a lot brighter pinks than they appear to be in the photo. Needless to say the stash report took a pretty big hit.
Used last week: 5.49 yards
Added last week: 17.5 yards
Used for 2013: 21.3 yards
Added for 2013: 49.25 yards
Net stashed for 2013: 27.95 yards
It's not there wasn't a bunch out this week, it's just that more came in. I still have three quilts that need backs before May. Maybe I can still get back to the black if I swear off all quilt shops for the next few months.
That's it for my stash report this week. Hopefully, I can find the will to get firmly back on the "no buy" wagon this week. To see how well everyone else is doing with stash management, check out Judy's Patchwork Times.
