It's been a slow Sunday so far. Just sipping coffee and checking out the news. We spent yesterday at the pool watching Drama Teen do this:
She did actually swim some as well, but we were short timers, so I ended up behind the blocks with a stopwatch and no camera for most of the meet.
Adding in church and dinner out meant not much stitching happened yesterday. But black background fabric for the Starburst Quilt Along got washed and pressed in between yesterday's events, so I'm ready to start on those blocks this afternoon.
And that brings me to this week's stash report. Starburst needs 5 yards of background fabric. I really had my heart set on black, but of course, the most I had on hand of any one black fabric was 3 yards. So I ordered some. In fact, I ordered 4 different fabrics because it's so hard to tell what will work until you actually see it (black isn't always black). This is what the UPS guy brought me this week:
The fabric in the upper left is being used for Starburst, the other pieces are going into the stash for other projects. Thankfully fabric doesn't spoil. I have several projects that I'd like to make that have black backgrounds, so it will all get used at some point. However, for the short term, the stash report took another big hit.
Used last week: 1.01 yards
Added last week: 20 yards
Used for 2013: 63.83 yards
Added for 2013: 255.83 yards
Net stashed for 2013: 192 yards
It's good that I've got some time off this week so I can work on raising the outgoing numbers before the end of the year! That's it for my stash report. I'm linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times. I need to get laundry going, but then will come the second cup of coffee and a chance to check out who is destashing and who is stashing.
