Sunday Stash Report

Sunday, March 28, 2010
My fabric stash had a dent put in it this week as I donated fabric to a 4-H project.  They were looking for quilting type fabric (or any type of fabric) to teach kids how to sew straight seams, match seam lines, etc, and piecing quilts is an excellent way to learn those skills.  I asked Henrietta to guess how much we had added out of my stash (of COURSE we didn't measure before we added to the boxes!) but will guess it at 29 yards.  Now that wasn't so much, as Jay gave us about 200 yards from his stash!  

So this week my figures are---

Bought this week--00.00
Donated this week--29.00 yds
Bought Year to Date -39.60
Finished YTD 45.60
YTD  +35.00 yards

The numbers look odd when I didn't finish a thing!  But I'm sure those kids will have more fun with it than I would. 

I hope to get a little sewing in this week.  I'm also planning an Easter meal as Laura Beth, Nick, and Mason will be here.  Probably a few other people too.

That's so nice, it's like a chain for sharing and helping and passing the fabric along for the next good purpose. You're so good! :) Take care, Dianne B. in England

What a great way to pass on the skill of sewing and do a little cleaning out at the same time!
