We have been traveling in the Southwest. It was wonderful, warm, sunny and bug free. I did not stitch at all, although I took my Featherweight and a project. Our journey began with MQS in Wichita KS. Beautiful quilts….I added thread and quilty gadgets. The most damage to fabric acquisition happened at Elaine’s in Salt Lake City. That is a lovely store and great staff. I added mostly FQs…but they added up! In an effort to balance this splurge I finished the binding (finally) on BH’s Easy Street…so it is finally in the finished column. More on this later. Now for the numbers…..
Acquired this week……12.5 yards….mostly FQs
Acquired year to date….91. yards
Used this week……17.25…quilt is 105. X 105….many, many small pieces
Used year to date…..79 yards
Stashed 12. yards —- still in the red.
Not that bad…except I am nearing the 100 yard mark for purchased. I had hoped this was the year to stay under 100 yards.
Now I am off to Judy’s to see how others have fared this week!
