Stash Report - Week 30 of 2013

It's been a wonderfully relaxing week.  We finally found time in our work schedules and Drama Teen's volleyball schedule to take our summer vacation.  Where have I been?  Some place completely unlike home. 

Needless to say there has not been a lot of sewing going on this week.  I did manage to get in a bit of stitching before we got on the plane last week, so there is a bit out to report.  Vacation wouldn't be complete without checking out all the new to me quilt shops, so there is "some" incoming as well.    

Used last week:  0.1 yards
Added last week: 17.75 yards

Used for 2013:  49.43 yards
Added for 2013:  148.83 yards

Net stashed for 2013:  99.4 yards

I did a lot of checking out this week!  I found a few fat quarters:

A bit of yardage:  

The black and white tree fabric reminded me of this photo that had been taken earlier in the week.  

And one quilt kit.

This is the first quilt kit that I've ever brought home.  I usually don't like making something exactly like someone else has made, but this pattern in these fabrics was just irresistible.  

A few patterns also made their way into my shopping cart along the way.  

I really don't have plans for any of them at the moment, but with all the fabric that's coming home with me, maybe there should be!

That's it for my vacation stash report.  Hopefully next week will see an up tick in the out number, I'd really like to stay below 100 yards stashed for the year.   For more stash tales, check out Patchwork Times.

It looks like you had a great trip--beautiful scenery and good quilt shopping. What more could you ask for!

The bandana style prints are wonderful. I would have gone mad on those!

Lovely patterns and the quilt kit is very you I think.

When on holidays anything you purchase to add to your stash doesnt really count - its like eating cookies standing up- they dont have calories either.

The tree fabric is my favorite of all your lovely stash additions. It just looks serene. Can't wait to see what you make with it. in the world did all that fit in your suitcase for the plane ride home? I imagine you packed light on purpose at the onset, yes? :) Happy Sunday!
