Stash Report-5/13/2012

Happy Mother's Day!  My Guy made my favorite breakfast for me this morning - scones.  I'm being given the day to sew if that's what I want.  Not sure what the plan is for dinner, though I do know that ice cream at our favorite place here in town is on the agenda for after dinner. 

I pushed some buttons on the computer key board the week before last and a whole set of batiks showed up on Tuesday.  Most were on sale, which was just to hard to resist.  Yardage was ordered for only 2 of them, the others were all just half yard cuts.  

I ordered a wide selection of colors.  Some of these may end up in the quilt Drama Teen wants, but I mainly wanted to build up my selection of batiks for some inspired moment down the road.  These batiks remind me of jewels, I love the bright colors.   

The stash report did take a pretty good hit on the negative side.  But I'm so far into the red, it's just doesn't matter. 

Used last week: 1.13 yards
Added last week: 14 yards

Used for 2012: 16.04 yards
Added for 2012: 156 yards

Net stashed for 2012:  139.96 yards

The Sweet Treats blocks and setting the Fat Quarter Stars were responsible for the little that went out this week.  Not big bunches out, but for me anything over a yard is a pretty good week.  

I'm linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times.  Jump over there at take a peak at all the other reports.

I dont think you should be held responsible when your finger slips on the keyboard and fabric just turns up.

I heard that anything you buy on the internet is actually virtual shopping so it doesnt count does it?

It is so hard to resist a sale on Batiks. They are just beautiful. Enjoy your ice cream and thanks for sharing.
