Sunday Stash Report, 8-31-08

This week I did not buy any fabric.  And I even went to a fabric store yesterday!  The only thing I bought was a pattern for a quilt with chickens on it.  I love going to that store, though (Sands Fabrics in Pampa).  There are always some beautiful quilts hanging there to see…some pretty longarm eye candy, too. 

I have used one yard from my stash for the memorial quilt.  I now have the top together, except for the outside border.

I used 1.5 yds this week making those little jewelry/notions bags I blogged about in the previous post.  I made these two today.

So zero yards added this week, and 2.5 yards busted. Year to date:

  • Incoming 83 yards
  • Outgoing 95.25 yards
  • Total busted 11.25 yards

I’m still going in the right direction!  I’m determined to end this year with a positive total.  My fabric is falling off the shelves in my closet. 

I finished the repair work on my storm at sea binding, and am back to stitching.  That will be a 2008 finish before long.  I just piddled around, back and forth, between projects today.  My seasonal allergies are in full bloom today.  I couldn’t get far from a kleenex today.  I broke down and started back on the prescription nasal spray today.  I also made these sand tarts today:

Did you get to do something you love today?  I hope so!  I’m looking forward to another day off from my day job tomorrow.  Enjoy your labor day!

  1. I’ve been in the kitchen a lot too! Cooking up tomatoes for sauce and grating and freezing zucchini (also baked a batch of zucch muffins). Roasted some cherry tomatoes last night for a new recipe from Rachel Ray–yum! Care to share the recipe for those yummy-looking tarts?? They look delicious!
