It was gloriously cool in northern Oklahoma this last week. It's rare that I come home from work in July and put on sweats, normally I'm looking for the coolest pair of shorts I can find. It rained all day Thursday with the highs barely making it into the 70s.
Everything is lush and green, when it's usually starting to turn brown about now.
The Black-eyed Susans are still going strong. It's supposed to warm up to just shy of 100 F by mid week, but then is should cool down to the low 90s. It doesn't get much better in Oklahoma this time of year.
My stash report's not quite as favorable as the weather. I took advantage of the Fat Quarter Shop's 25% off all Moda fabrics to stock up larger cuts of the Moda Marbles and some of the white Moda Muslin.
It seems you can never have too much white or black for backgrounds. I also added in some yellow, red and teal since those are colors I don't have much of.
Needless to say, my stash report looks pretty lopsided. I finished up the blocks for the Jigsaw quilt, so there is a bit going out.
Used last week: 0.35 yards
Added last week: 25 yards
Used in 2014: 9.96 yards
Added in 2014: 291.3 yards
Net stashed in 2014: 281.34 yards
This next week should look better as I hope to get the borders on the Jigsaw quilt and piece a back. It would be nice to see a bit more going out. However, I've been looking at recent additions of tone on tone fabrics as my "retirement" fabric account. It's hard to resist a good sale, especially with the cost of fabric today.
