Stash Report #23 for 2013

It's been a nice weekend so far.  My Guy and I took Friday off work and just hung out together.  Drama Teen was spending the day at the zoo with the summer camp where she volunteers.  We don't get the chance to just be together as a couple very often. Drama Teen has enough going on that we usually end up using our monthly day off to do something with her.  Not that we usually mind, it's just nice to get to be on our own for a while.  The rest of the weekend has been spent on household chores and laundry.  Since we've not been running so much on the weekends, the house is beginning to reach some semblance of order. 

Some stitching happened this week, but as most of it has been binding work, not a lot of fabric going out.  

Used last week: 0.89 yards 
Added last week:  7 yards

Used for 2013:  46.17 yards
Added for 2013:  104.25 yards

Net stashed for 2013:  58.08 yards

The fabric in is from the Fat Quarter shop.  They were having a sale on some tone on tones, which I'm still a bit short on in my stash.  So I took advantage of the sale to order a couple.  


The red is from Wilmington Prints Essentials Sparkle line and the blue is Rajasthan Basics by Jinny Beyer for RJR Fabrics.  I just fell in love with the richness of the blue fabric, which prompted me to go back and push a few more buttons to order some of the other colors from the line. Bad I know, but tone on tones are something I just don't have much of and at 50% off it was too good to pass up.  

That's it for my stash report this week.  May you have much better luck at resisting temptation than I'm having.  Check out all the other stash busting and enhancement going on over at Patchwork Times.

  2. I love your new additions to the stash. I almost feel like buying some especially that Sparkle one. I have it in a tan/brown shade that just seems to go with everything brown.

  3. Glad you had fun on your day off together. I remember those days, my hubby would take me to lunch on ours. Now the kids are on there own, I have seemed to lost that quiet day, since they are all the same now.
    Love the colors, and I would be doing the same, filling in my stash, especially at 50 per cent off.
    Keep up the great work.

  4. The binding work is so rewarding but it sure doesn't add to the numbers. Love your additions!
