The numbers were taking a turn for the worst. I had a dentist appointment too close to Hobby Lobby so of course I have yardage to add. I buy Kona Cotton at Hobby Lobby. They have a nice color selection and with the 30 % off , the price is OK.
So this morning I decided I’d better get that string quilt bound so I could subtract something! Strings at 10 inches ended up at 60″ X 72″….a nice size, and I think since it has lots of seam allowances on the front I can safely subtract a total of 10 yards front, back and binding. This will be added to the stack going to the Humility of Mary shelter. Not a real beauty, but warm and sturdy to last a good long time. Pictures to be posted later…..
So, here are the numbers…….
Used this week…….10 yards
Used year to date…….100.25……wow, I hit the 100 yard mark!
Bought this week……8 yards (mostly Kona)
Bought year to date……107.00 …….ackkkk, I am beyond the 100 yard mark!
Net used….6.75 yards…..still in the red, but not as bad as it could have been.
