Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: A little out, a little in. 6/2/13



It’s been a busy, hot week, and I didn’t sew as much as I would have liked.  I need to make sure I get up early and not linger over the coffee and tablet.  Our woods are deceptively cool, but by noon my upstairs studio is usually too hot for sewing in this weather.  We’ve also been away a fair amount.   This week I used 6 1/2 yards for the Orange and Gray String Quilt.  I’ll blog about it soon.


Some fabric was purchased.  10 1/2 yards.  but isn’t it pretty?  Those are little gray flying geese on the white one!  I passed by The Fabric Shack twice in the last two weeks, but I couldn’t look the other way the third time.  The geese were on sale…  Aaa, I have the rest of the year to make it to -100 yards!


This week:  +10.5 yards,  -6.5 yards

YTD:  +83.5 yards,  -144.4 yards

Net stash used in 2013:  -61 yards


How are you doing with your destashing?


I’m linking up with Sunday Stash Report at Patchwork Times.

  1. Obviously I’m not doing as well as you on destashing! Love the colors of your string quilt.

  2. That grey and orange look great together. I’m going to have to use more grey. Nice numbers!
