Sunday Stash Report July 4, 2010

First off Happy 4th of July to everyone. I hope everyone is going to have time to spend at least part of the day with friends and family.

I did manage to carve out some sewing time this week between all the working on the old house to get it ready to sell. I have been making loads of 1/2 square triangles for a Christmas lap quilt and also used some stash (on the frame now) for backing fabric for a couple of runners.

I also continued to stay out of JoAnns and the local quilt shop, mainly because Ihave been to busy. Here are my current stats, I think they are looking pretty good.

Fabric used this week: 6.25 yards
Fabric used YTD: 137 yards
Fabric purchased this week: 0
Fabric purchased this year: 78.75 yards
Net Used in 2010: 58.25

I know when the shops get all there Christmas fabrics in I will be making some purchases to make things for fall craft shows but until then I am trying to ony use stash unless I need something for a border, binding or backing.

You go girl. I have managed not to buy any fabric that wasn't needed. I had to get some for the backing of a kids charity quilt. It has been painfull lol. But I am waiting for vacation and the quilt show. I can't believe I have gone almost 2 months without adding to my stash.
