Sunday Stash Report: Home from Vacation

2 Comments

Back from our Odyssey across America and Canada, and only 2 yards of fabric returned with me!  I am happy to report that there are hundreds of quilt shops in the northern US and Canada, but I did not shop in most of them.  DH kept saying, “Do you want to go in that shop?”, as if it would make up for the hours of staring at the plains or slogging through yet another museum or gift shop.  I kept reminding him that I already own plenty of fabric.  I did buy these pre-cuts at The Quilt Patch in Moose jaw, SK, with the idea of reproducing some of those plains or mountains in quilt form.

On return, I found that Timeless Treasures had sent me this Tonga Treat Mini as a thank-you for the quilts I donated to Hurricane Sandy Relief.  Darn, batiks!

This week:  +2.75 yards, -0 yards
YTD:  +114.5 yards,  -171 yards
Net stash used in 2013:  56.5 yards

How is your summer going?  Getting to be time for back-to-school and some serious sewing!

I’m linking up with Sunday Stash Report at Patchwork Times.

  1. Your were remarkably restrained. Kudos!

  2. Darn those Timeless Treasures people. If you don’t like batiks you could just send them my way.! Glad you had a nice vacation. You did well to only come home with 2 yards.
