Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 7/21/13

1 Comment

No fabric came in, and none went out this week.  I finished and arranged the log cabin blocks, ready to sew into a top, and I made decisions and sewed the first six blocks (of twenty-four) for the Coffee Quilt, so there should be some finishes late next month when I return from vacation and retrieve my machine from the “spa” where it’s being cleaned and adjusted.  Now, if I can limit the fabric purchases during the trip, all should be well!

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

Net stash used in 2013:  -59.25 yards

I wanted to show you the wonderful vintage lamp I bought last month.  I bought it locally as my friend was closing her shop in town, but you can see more of her great finds in her Etsy shop, Finders Keepers.  This beauty has a very heavy base that no quilt will ever nudge off the table (as they do my plastic Ott Lite).  The first extension is 22″ tall, and the second arm comes out another 12″.  It turns and swivels and pours light anywhere in my studio.  I’m happy.

Good luck on your destashing. Whatever you sew will be more than I will these next four weeks!
