It's been a fast week. Not because work has been busy, but because we've been on vacation this week. It's true, time does fly when you are having fun. Not to rub it in, but this has been the view from where we've been staying all week.
After the madness of June, getting a week to kick back and have fun was a much needed battery recharge.
Not much happening in the sewing room, but I did bring some embroidery work with me.
I've made quite a bit of progress since the last time these butterflies made an appearance on the blog.
No fabric usage to report this week, but I did do my bit for the local quilt shop and bought a few fun pieces to take home.
Drama Teen liked the sea creatures and I thought the stripe would make a fun binding for one of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts (should I ever finish one!). There's also a set of blue fat quarters to use for this year's RSC blocks. As much as I like blue, I don't have much in the scrappy portion of my stash, so these fat quarters will get put to good use later this month. I also fell in love with the display version of the Gigi's Thimble pattern, it would be great for some of those big prints at home that I don't quite know what to do with. And a quilting book to read on the plane ride home. I was very restrained on the fabric purchases, they had some really cute fabrics. It's a good thing space in the luggage is a limited.
So on that note, here's the damage to the stash.
Used last week: 0 yards
Used year to date: 38.79 yards
Added year to date: 219.05 yards
Net added year to date: 180.26 yards
I'm dreading getting back into the work groove next week. Good thing I'll have some sewing room time to help ease the transition.
Linking up with quiltpaintcreate for the weekly stash report and Slow Stitching Sunday over at Kathy's Quilts.
