Stash Report - Week 18 and More

I was in Paducah  for the AQS show this past week; and believe it or not, I was able to resist adding to my stash. In fact the only fabric I brought home with me was the half package of charm squares that AQS gave as a gift for renewing my membership.  Not sure what that equates to, but I'm not going to counting it. My totals are the same as last week. Fabric Added -0; Fabric Used -0; YTD Added - 15 yds, YTD Used - 20.338 yds.

Here are a few of the items that came home with me. The purse pattern uses a chenille technique and I bought the teal leather handles because they were on the sample they had and it really looked good on theirs. I guess that will limit my fabric choices, but I like most colors that will go with dark teals. They had so many cute designs I wanted one of each.  The eReader Wristlet pattern was a birthday gift from my friend who went with me.  I usually celebrate my birthday every year in Paducah since it falls during the show.  This works out nicely for me and also for my DH because he gives me $$ and says get what you want!
Have any of you seen the gal that demos how to mend holes or tears and cuts in all kinds of fabric?  Well every year I watch her and think, maybe I should get some of her 007 bonding agent.  You just never know when you might need it, right?  Then I talk myself out of it -- year after year.  Well, I gave in this year.  They even threw in some extra products to try.  What a deal!  I hope I don't need to use it too often, but I have a lifetime supply if anyone needs to mend a small hole accidentally cut or tore while quilting or appliqueing.

  4. Can't beleive you didn't buy any fabric. I don't know if I should offer "congratulations" or "condolences." I bought one of the "mending" kit years ago and have used it but I should have watched a demo again to remember how to use it. Nice meeting up with you for the Church supper and seeing Tommy again too.
