Sunday Stash Report - December 19th, 2010

Fabric added last two weeks:  43 yards (Christmas present to myself)
Fabric added YTD:  196 yards
Fabric used last two weeks:  1 1/4 yards
Fabric used YTD:  118 1/4 yards
Net used for 2010:  -67 3/4 yards

Here is a picture of what my 43 yards look like:
I took advantage of a recent clearance sale and scored all of the fabric at a great price, none of it was more than $2 a yard.  Also, most of these fabrics have an intended usage, pillowcases for donating.  I hope to get 50 pillowcases done in that many days, one a day seems doable if I cut and prepare the fabric in advance.  The two bolts are about 8 to 10 yards each, these are to be backings.

The 1 1/4 yard used?  That was my first cut for Ann Smith's 2010 New Year mystery; the fabric requirements and pre-sewing instructions have been posted, I plan on using these:
I should have the rest of the pieces cut today.
I have also been working on Bonnie's RRCB mystery and have clues 1,2 and 4 partially done, my favorite clue #3 is all done, I haven't taken pictures of the completed units but these are the fabrics I'm using:
Yes, I am a mystery quilt addict (my  2010 UFO Challenge post will attest for this) ; they are so much fun. There has only been one that I didn't like and didn't finish, the fabric is hiding in a box somewhere. Other than this one fluke, they have all been lots of fun, as a matter of fact, there were a few that I didn't do and I regret it.

Well, I think I've reported all that's been going on in my sewing room and quilting life for these last two weeks.  I'm going to get as much fabric cut this morning as I can possible can, my sewing room's door will be closed later this afternoon and probably won't be open until next Sunday. I have an insanely busy week ahead and don't expect to have much time for sewing, but I plan to make up for it during the days between Holidays.
