Week 8 Stash Enhancements

Another week has flown by and it's time to confess  show my stash report.  I did it again -- drove passed the quilt shop having closeout sales and my car headed right into the parking lot!!  I really had no control of it.  I tried to reason that I didn't need any more fabric, but it wouldn't listen.  So I gave in. I may need an intervention when it comes to sales in fabric shops.  Here's what I left the shop with to add to my stash. In all honesty, I hope to be able to use most of these with my Brown Sugar bali pop shown on a previous post.
Here's a few close-up shots

And now for the results of all this fun,
Fabric Added this week - 6 yards
Fabric Added YTD - 34.7 yards
Fabric Used this week - .5 - binding on a quilt
Fabric Used YTD - 5.5 yards 
Net used for 2013 - minus 29.2 yds

Just wait, soon I'll be able to add the yardage from Easy Street and head this report in a different direction.  It's getting real close to being a flimsey. Keep watching.

You can check out other stash reports at Judy's.  


  1. Well I for one, think you should be commended. I'm not sure I would have been able to stop at 6 yards. :) If I had been there, I probably would have come home with whatever you left there. You found some pretty treasures!

  2. Love your new batiks! Definitely worth an add to the stash report!

  3. You got some beautiful batiks at that sale. It's a good thing that I don't live close to any quilt shops.

  4. Oh Dar! These are just GORGEOUS!!! I can just see them beautifying a quilt soon :*) I think you have a very smart car, and it is obviously well trained =^..^=

  5. Love the batiks! They are my weakness too. I am actually using some of mine making Block of the Month blocks samples for my guild.

  6. Love them and how how could you not have brought them home?
    It really does give meaning to "smart" car! lol

  7. Sales are my downfall too. You snagged some nice ones though!

  8. If you really feel so guilty about it, I'd gladly take that grey circle fabric off your hands. I'd hate for you to feel too guilty. We quilters have to help each other any way we can ; )

  9. cars are now made to seek out quilt shops. Truly!! I was going down a Hwy and came to an intersection with a stop sign. My car whipped around that corner--did a U turn in the middle of the street and pasted its bumper to the quilt shop door! (ROFL--Hwy 212 in Minnesota--Bird Island--Gathering Friends Quilt Shop)

    I'm with Deb--they are "smart cars".
