So… Not the kind of numbers this week that we like to see, but it was inevitable. We spent a lot of time this week packing and transporting DS back to college (junior year!), so I didn’t complete anything, not even a pouch. I did sew a little, doing some mending and making some trial blocks for a baby quilt ( which didn’t work out), but that was it.
Then there were the purchases. I received both a baby quilt commision and a baby shower invitation. Both require specific colors, and my selection was low. Not anymore. First I got online and ordered a number of yards from Fabric Shack (and it is lovely stuff!). Then I bought a few more at Sew Many Blessings in Huntington, WV, when we were there.
Then a pretty package of fat quarters arrived in the mail, my prize from the Scrap Basket Quilt Along. Thank you! So.
This week: +17.5 yards, -0 yards
YTD: +91.25 yards, -136 yards
Net stash used 2014: -44.75 yards
In case you were wondering, I do prewash all my yardage before I take it up to the studio, using Color Catchers. I don’t press it then. I fold it directly out of the dryer, neatly, to fit my bins, but in a way that I can tell the difference from ready-to-cut fabric. Then, when I’m ready to cut for a quilt, I starch and press only the fabrics I’m using. Works for me.
I still haven’t solved the problems with cat hair, but we can’t have everything.
Have a great week, and good luck on your destashing! I’m linking up with Sunday Stash Report at Patchwork Times.
