Not a lot of stitching this week. What time that was spent in the sewing room was spent refining the fabric selection for Drama Teen's new quilt. She wants a rainbow of colors that morph into each other for this quilt. After several refinements, we got something that looked right using just my stash fabrics. Which is good because my busy fingers pushed a lot of buttons last week. So what fun packages did I get this week? Connecting Threads had a fabric sale last week, so I ordered large cuts of three tone on tones because I never seem to have enough large pieces for projects.
Then Craftsy had a sale last week and Moda's line of Midwinter Reds was on sale. I'd been eyeing that collection since it came out. I finally just broke down and ordered it.
In addition to the fat quarters, I bought some yardage of red, tan and beige. I'm not sorry for the purchases. Stashes need to be refreshed. I've used more this year than I've used any of the previous three years. I already have a pattern in mind for the Midwinter Reds, so hopefully, they won't stay in the stash for long. So whats the damage? It's not pretty.
Used last week: 0.19 yards
Added last week: 40.5 yards
Used for 2013: 60.26 yards
Added for 2013: 198.33 yards
Net stashed for 2013: 138.07 yards
So much for my goal to keep the net stashed to under 100 yards. I'll make some gains on that before the end of the year, but using more then 38 yards in the next two months isn't real likely.
That's it for my stash report. For more fab fabric reports, check out Patchwork Times.
