First--I have a finish. Dee's Stars---
Jackie--you should recognize some of the fabrics--I know most the white is from your box, and there are other prints from it. Mary Kay--there are fish and balloons and roses from your box. This quilt was made using 5" charms I had cut from scraps---all KINDS of scraps. It finished about 75x88"--a nice sized QOV. It took a long time to finish the binding--it has a black border AND binding--and I could only work on it when the light was good. The picture is somewhat washed out- bright early morning sunshine but the wind wasn't blowing! 11 yards used in this quilt.
Friday Pat and I went shopping--armed with coupons. I can't find my receipt--but since I know how much I spent--I bought 40 yards. And I bought 2.75 yds the week before. Ouch!!
My numbers for 2013 are now--
Stash out this week--11 yards
Stash in this week--42.75 yards
Stash in YTD--114.75 yards
Stash out YTD--100.5
Stash is ahead--14.25 yards
How do I feel about my numbers? Good! The fabric I bought included focus fabric, background, backing and fabrics that would coordinate. I bought fabric for a new project--a sampler quilt I'm doing with an on-line group. Only one piece that was a "just because I like it" purchase, a teal 30's--remember in July I didn't have any teal 30's for my Rainbow Scrappy Challenge? Well--I decided I REALLY NEEDED a teal in that quilt! Later this week I'll try to take pictures. See everyone's stash reports at Patchwork Times blog.
A short whine about new technology. About 6 weeks ago I bought a Nexus 7 tablet. Not so much to replace my laptop--but I had worn out my kindle. Android technology--I'm slowing learning the ropes. But now Yahoo Groups is changing--I'm now "neo" whatever that means--but it mostly means I CAN'T ACCESS MY GROUPS or SOME OF THEM HAVE DISAPPEARED!! (laptop and tablet) I'm trying to be patient--but its getting harder. If anyone can shed some light on this "new improved" stuff--please enlighten me!
