Stash Report 2/19/2012

I have had the "ick" for the past couple of weeks. Thought I was feeling better, not 100% but probably 80% better.

 I decided to cut some fabric to work on a QOV.   This was last Wednesday. You know where I am going with this.....
The strips were to be cut 4.5 inches wide. I used my 6.5 in ruler and cut on the 4 inch line - ugh. In my medicated mind I simply thought I would just make the blocks smaller, so I continued cutting - 2.5 yards worth of fabric. When I finished I realized that to make the 4 inch pieces fit my pattern I was going to have to rip apart the blocks I already made and cut them smaller and resew them.  That wasn't going to happen.

So off I went today to the quilt shop.....
and added 4.5 yards of fabric.

I also received a package from a friend this week...
3.5 yards of Raggedy Ann and Andy fabric.

I had a few emails about my last post concerning  my mother. We do a lot of things together, going out to lunch twice a week, shopping, movies,dinner out every weekend. We also go on one big trip each year, last year we went to Alaska. This year she wants to see a Civil War reenactment.  I also take her gambling once every three months. We go on genealogy adventures. She is by no way neglected. When I am home and have free time I can probably be found in my sewing room.

I still have some ABC panels left if anyone wants them.

Added this week - 8 yards
used this week - 0 yards

Added YTD - 68 yards
Used YTD - 64.68

In the red - 4.68 yards - no quilting until I am 100% better!

I hate when that happens. Hope you fell 100% soon. It won't take you long to get back into the black.

I'm not sure I would count the fabric sent to me. I mean - you didn't actively go out and get that fabric - that was out of your control, so shouldn't be counted. Just put it in another closet, not your stash shelves - LOL. AND by next week you'll have cut into that fabric you bought for the QOV, so you can count all of that is used-hehe.

Feel better soon. I know how you feel. Had something since Jan 2nd and feel so tired. It's affecting my cutting too! I cut a border too short yesterday and then had to piece it to finish a top. grrrr.

Yikes, I hate when that happens. But I'm sure you will find other uses for the "scraps". Hope you are much better now. I'm not sure what's going around but I had it too. I'm glad it's gone now.

Yuck! Sorry you are under the weather! I don't know what is going around, but one or both of my sons has been sick for the past couple of weeks. They are both better now and I'm hoping it stays that way! Hope you are better soon!

Sorry to hear about your misadventures in cutting! I hate when that happens, but I bet you'll figure out what to do with the scraps.

Fuzzy head makes for mistakes. Yup--been there. I loved your 2012 resolutions--mine are kinda like that. I've been itching to start a new quilt BUT the design wall in full, the hanging rod is full, and projects are all over in their baskets and bag. Stash reports are just that--no stash buster police out there--only your friends to cheer you on and enjoy your finishes--and purchases!!

Hope you get back to your 100% soon. Great numbers on the stash busting despite taking a week off. Healing thoughts are being sent your way. Jane
