Sunday Stash Report: 7/14/13

Greetings from Amish country!  There’s been no sewing at all this week as I’ve been traveling along the Jersey shore and attending a family reunion that we held in Lancaster, PA.  Of course, Lancaster also means fabric shopping. I didn’t go around much, because we all know that I don’t need more fabric, but the prices are very good, especially here at Zook’s.

This week:  +14.25 yards,  -0 yards
YTD:  +111.75 yards,  -171 yards

Net stash used in 2013:  -59.25 yards

Better luck to you on destashing!

I’ll leave you with a photo of a glass iron, made during WWII when metal was in short supply.  I don’t know how well it worked, but it sure is beautiful! I saw it at the Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center at Mill ville, NJ.

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

  1. How lucky are you! I love that part of the States – been there a couple of times. Quilt on my bed bought in that region. Have a good trip home. Mary Ann

  3. That iron is beautiful! I had no idea they were made of glass in the 40’s. Someday I hope to get to the East Coast.
