Where did the last week go? My Guy and I were talking about that last night. Nothing special in the schedule this week, but considering that Drama Teen has something going every weeknight we still did a lot of running.
We took Friday off and I spent it in the sewing room. Not all of it was stitching time. I made the label for Mon Ami. I hope to get the binding sewn to the front of that quilt today and then work to get it sewn to the back before the end of the month. It would be nice to start the year off with a finish. Work continued on Celtic Solstice and the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler so there is some fabric out. But as I mentioned last week, Connecting Threads brought back their Rhapsody of Reds line this year. I didn't buy it last year and then kicked myself that I hadn't. So I broke down and bought some of both Rhapsody of Reds and Rhapsody of Blues.
I bought some yardage to go with the fat quarters and that's what is really going to hurt the stash report. My favorites from this collection are these two.
No idea what I'm going to make with these two fabric lines, but I'm sure something will come up where these fabrics will be just perfect.
So here's the stash report.
Used last week: 0.92 yards
Added last week: 26.5 yards
Used for 2014: 1.53 yards
Added for 2014: 26.5 yards
Net stashed: 24.97 yards
If I don't buy anything else, I should be back in the black before mid year. I've been deleting all the fabric shop news letters to avoid any more temptation. I do love both of these fabric lines and Connecting Threads prices are really reasonable, so I'm not at all sorry they got added to the stash. I just need to work really hard at getting some of the older fabrics out so I can make room for the new.
