Um, yes I did buy fabric this week. Or, rather, I mostly bought fabric during December sales and it arrived this week. Like, um, 32 yards of the stuff.
The batik on the left is my background for Surrounded by Scraps, Charlotte’s mystery quilt for this year.
This week I made one more baby quilt, similar to, and using scraps from this one. That used 3.5 yards.
This week: + 32 yards, – 3.5 yards
This year: + 38 yards, – 10.5 yards
Net in 2017: 27.5
Also, this week I received a number of goodies from Amazon (DH says I’m the reason they had to add 1000 new employees…). Anyway, they include fusible I’m out of, pins, spray baste, a desperately needed new ironing board cover, a white board, and a new iron! My current iron still worked, but wasn’t very effective. I never felt it heated up as well as my little $10 Sunbeam I use on my pressing mat. So I got a $23 Sunbeam Steam Master 1400! And I love it! Non-stick sole plate, retractable cord, 3-way auto-off. Heats right up, and blinks when it’s cooling down. Now I have no excuses for not getting lots of work done.
