For a couple of reasons I’ve decided to play along with the weekly stash report hosted by Judy. First, I really want to know how much I’m buying and how much I’m using. I thought about starting mid-way last year but decided to wait for 2011. I also want to play along to sort of “keep myself in check” as to my fabric purchases as well as to make sure I’m using those pieces that I buy. So…I added 3 yards of Riley Blake Domestic Diva ( finally had to get some of this…plan on using it for potholders, a runner, and some gifts for next Christmas). I’ve also added 2 yards of the cream tonal background fabric from 12 Days of Christmas (not pictured)–this will be great to have to use with my 12 Days scraps, and I’m hoping it will also work with Kate’s next line, Flurry! And finally, I picked up ¾ yard of Echino’s Fall 2010 Collection (Patchwork in Multi) by Etsuka Furuya–I’m going to use some of this for hexies and the rest for a Japanese-inspired quilt. So, nothing used…but 5.75 yards added for the week/year! I’m keeping a spreadsheet…so hopefully this will be easy to keep track of!
I’ve been stitching hexies today…and trying to decide if I want to put them together in flowers or in straight rows…this project is kind of evolving as I work on it!
And…for the winners from our LePetite parade…we have a few…
