Sunday Stash Report - March 4, 2012

I do have a good stash report this week. I tried to buy some fabric (lol). I went in search of a layer cake to make a quilt from a utube video I saw that looked quick, fun and easy but JoAnns does carry layer cakes and my nearest quilt shop only has dark ones that it definitely not my taste.

I used fabric this week making the top of my challenge quilt (picture tomorrow as it is still on my design wall), a backing for a couple of runners and a backing for a kitty quilt that I made the top a couple of months ago.

Current stats:

Fabric used this week: 8.5 yards
Fabric used YTD: 45 yards
Fabric purchased this week: 0
Fabric purchased YTD: 19
Net fabric used in 2012: 26

I didn't get a chance to start a new project this week as we spent time on college stuff. We went to the Admitted Student Open House at the University of Maryland on friday. What a mass of people!!! Most of it was very well organized and gave us a lot of additional information some good, some not so good.

The not so good was information on how hard it is to get into their business school, which has Mandy rethinking her prospective major. The good part was presentations by the scholors program, finding out which Scholors program Mandy will be in, and getting to tour one of their residence halls which by coincidence is the hall that she will be living in.

Her favorite part of the tour was going through the gym which will be very close to her housing. The place is HUGE, with two pools, basket ball, racket ball, exercise machines, dance/exercise studios etc etc.

One more thing crossed off the list of things to do. Now lots of little things to do (immunization forms, getting AP info sent etc.) and then the next major step is a two day orientation in June which I was finally able to schedule around my hubby's travel and other various things. Maybe I can sit back and breathe for a bit (and sew!!!).

Gosh--when did it get to be so hard for a girl to buy fabric??!!

Lucky you were able to get so much sewing done WITHOUT a purchase.

I remember doing all that when my daughter went to College. Exciting and sad for me. She was 2 hours away but seem so far. It is a exciting time for them. You'll get a lot more done once it's all settled.

Great stash report. I probably need to start taking notes. I didn't realize how much it took to get one child into the college stuff!
