Stash Report Week 1 to 4

Fabric Added this Week(s): 75 yards

Fabric Added Year to Date: 75 yards

Fabric Used this Week: 6 yards

Fabric Used Year to Date: 6 yards

I am starting this report on the negative side, I couldn't resist the recent year end clearance sales and ended up buying almost 75 yards!. In my defense, the purchases were done in two visits to the store, the first trip yielded a timid and humble purchase of 15 yards or so, I had to have these flannels for baby receiving blankets, burp clothes, diaper bag and other baby items.

The rest of the fabrics (mostly blues and neutrals) convinced me they were needed to supplement my stash. I bought about 27 different prints and a total of 58 yards of fabric! I was hyperventilating at the cutting table, but only because the people behind me were giving me evil looks for holding up the line. Otherwise, I was very happy with my selections and best of all, with the final tab, no more than a $100 for the whole lot.

Also, I did not make it to the Road to California quilting show, although I did not try too hard on that one since I had already gotten my new fabric fix with the sale purchases. Now that I think about it, not such a negative start after all.

Not all that negative ecspecially the deal you got on the fabric. Just think, if you went to Road to California, how much money you could have spent there.
