Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 5/8/16

Okay, some fabric was purchased this week!  Five yards.  But here’s the story. DH and I were out shopping and dining, and found ourselves seven miles away from Fabric Shack on the evening they stay open late.

What would you have done?  I think it’s amazing I only bought four yards of Kona white and a yard of black Grunge.  I did look around a lot at possibilities for finishing some of my current projects, but restrained myself from buying any.

I’ve been using up my white on these Twilters! exchange blocks.  I made ten more this morning, for a total of twenty, so I’m half way there.  I’ll count them out when I mail them off.

So the only fabric out this week is .75 yards for the eight blocks I sent to Kat.

This week:  + 5 yards,  – .75 yards
This year: + 53 yards,  – 71.5 yards
Net destashed in 2016:  18.5 yards

Hope you’re keeping your purchases under control and really using that stash.  Happy Mother’s Day!

  This picture is from two years ago, but I like it.

  1. White Kona and black Grunge are staples and not enhancements. You did great resisting temptation.

  2. What a coincidence, hahaha! I like the fabric you used for the birds in the air blocks Valerie! Yuri looks so much younger on the picture. Not :))) Happy Mother’s Day! Hope your knee is healing well!
