I have not blogged in a while, I have been busy getting a few customer quilts out of the way. My thumb has gotten worse and I know I will be facing surgery so wanted to get the ones that I had in house done and I just won’t be taking any for awhile. Also have been busy in meetings and a few other things going on.
In addition, I didn’t do last week’s stash report because I just didn’t know how to handle those big numbers! Are you curious on how big my numbers are?
Well…… we have a very small quilt shop in our town, they have nice things but the inventory has been way down lately. We heard about the opportunity to buy the shop and we are probably crazy but that is exactly what my husband and I are going to do. We are just starting all the legal work this coming week but hope to get it accomplished by 1 May.
I will be working in the shop most of the time and my husband will be helping with some of the book work, getting new shelves put together and servicing featherweight and other older singer and Kenmore and a few other brands of machines that have been around for a long time but still working well.
I met with one fabric rep most of today ordering fabrics , some to be delivered almost immediately and others spread over the next 5 months so that when the shop is officially turned over to me I will have some new things ready to put on the shelves. Much more will have to follow with other fabric reps but wanted to at least get a start.
So anyway, how do you put all this on a stash report..lol
My ACTUAL current stash report numbers are:
Fabric used YTD: 54 yards
Fabric purchased YTD: 28 yards
Net fabric used in 2012: 26 yards
I did actually find a few minutes to sew this week. I am working on a double slice layer cake quilt using a layer cake of batiks. I think it is going to be very pretty, just don’t know when I will get back to it. I think it is going to have to age on the design wall for a bit.
