Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 3/2/13

Just a little bit of fabric came in this week, but even less went out.  These things happen.

I was proud of myself for taking my ConKerr Cancer pillowcases to the nearest drop off on February 28, helping to complete my goals for February “Getting It Done” at Patchwork Times.  (I also met that day with the very nice and appreciative lady who collects Project Linus blankets, and handed off eight baby quilts, so I did complete all my goals.)  Nothing like waiting till the last day of the month, but I DID it, and that’s what counts.  However, The Mason Jar, that took the pillowcases, IS a quilt shop, so what could I do?  I think it would have been very rude to leave without buying anything…especially when they gave me 10% off for dropping off ten pillowcases…  So I wasn’t rude, but I didn’t buy very much, either.  I bought two golden brown batiks to fill out my dwindling browns, and the end of a bolt of fabric with large dots.  When I asked the women at the cutting table what color they thought it was, the answer was, “Kind of a grayish, blackish, brownish color.  Taupe?”  So I have some taupe dots for a backing.  Hmmm.

This week:  +5.75 yards,  -3.25 yards (pink quiet quilt)

YTD:  +21.75 yards, -63.5 yards

Net Stash used in 2013:  -41.75 yards

Linking up to Sunday Stash Report on Patchwork Times.
