Sunday Stash Report - August, whatever 2011

Yes I don't remember what the date is and to lazy feeling this morning to go look it up on a calendar.

I did great with my stash reduction this week. I got lots of table runners quilted (8 I think), a few other tops completed and a couple of other little things done and I STAYED out of quilt and fabric shops.

Here are a couple of the table runner tops that I made.

Stats for the week are:

Fabric used this week: 11 yards
Fabric used YTD: 198.5 yards
Fabric purchased this week: 0
Fabric purchased YTD: 140.5

Net fabric used for 2011: 58 yards, at least this is moving back in the right direction.

Hubby and I survived our daughters party last night for her ballet class. A few of the girls couldn't make it so we ended up with about 16 girls (14 to 18 years old). They seemed to have a great time but oh boy, what noise. Everyone talking and laughing at the same time. Luckily we had the basement and the back deck to escape to.

Today will have to finish the clean up, a couple of errands and hopefully get a customer quilt loaded on the frame.

You are a brave to host a party for 16 girls. That's quite a crowd.

Great stash busting this year. I could use some of your mojo, I'm going backwards.

Oh, teenage girls. What great memories. Cherish them while you can.

Your table runners are lovely. Are you using a pattern or are they your design? You are doing such a good job with stash busting! Congrats!

I really like your table runners. Your daughter will always remember this party you hosted. Good job on using your stash.
