Stash Report Week 24

Let's get the stash report out of the way:

Fabric Added Week 24: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 76 1/2 yards
Fabric Used Week 24 : 0 yards
Fabric Used Year to Date: 37 1 /8 yards

I probably should have said nothing in and nothing out, but I thought I needed a reminder, it's been almost half a year and my stash busting is not going very well. There is a need to seriously start busting the stash in the next two months, August is my birthday month and this is when I plan to enhance my stash to my heart's content. Storage space it at a premium around here, so making room is a priority. While there hasn't been any fabric usage, I had a great sewing week. I finished an old, old, OLD project: A string quilt. I can't even remember when I started, but I know it was buried in a closet last summer after pin basting. It is free motion quilted with wavy meandering across the blocks
Had a little mishap with the "quilting" gloves, my machine was determined to sew them unto the quilt:
But I persevered and finished it. Here is it after an encounter with the washer and dryer

There is hope still for my machine quilting skills to get better.
