Stash Report Week 28

I fell off the no fabric buying wagon this week. It has been since March since I bought anything. After seeing that in my last report, I gave myself permission to do a small amount of purposed purchasing. Hmmmm, purposed purchasing, that sounds rather cool. LOL. My Bear Tracks quilt is almost finished, and there will be a picture of it tomorrow, so I purchased some fabric to go into the next quilt I want to do. It's a variation of the classic Log Cabin design, called Rose Log Cabin by Deloa Jones, I believe her name is. I have been eying this quilt for years, and finally ordered the pattern last week. We went out to get strawberries on Thursday, and just a little further down that road is a quilt shop in Mount Bridges that I had never been to, so it seemed a perfect opportunity. I had some fabrics already here that I plan to use in it, but not enough, and it is difficult to match fabric shades on the computer screen, so it needed an in person shopping expedition. At least, that's what I told my husband, so that's the story I'm sticking with. LOL.
In addition, I also had to pick up a small amount of fabric for the binding of Crazy Curves So, on to the numbers:

Fabric used this week:               1.5 yards,   mostly in Bear Tracks, and the binding for Crazy Curves
Fabric used this year:                 70.2 yards
Fabric purchased this week:       4 yards,   mostly in assorted reds and light greens for the Rose quilt
Fabric purchased this year:        99.5 yards
Balance:                                  29.3 yards more purchased than used.

And, because a blog post with pictures is more interesting than one without, here's another picture of that adorably cute grandson of ours:


  1. He is still adorable! It's amazing how quickly they grow and change. Still can't wait to see your finished Bear Tracks quilt.

  2. That grandson sure is adorable...cute little smile! The Rose Log Cabin looks like a challenge. I haven't seen it before.

  3. I think it's funny that you included a photo of Avery but it has nothing to do with your blog post - lol! But he is cute, if I do say so myself. :)

  4. That Avery is such a cutie! I love babies at his age - they're awake enough to be fun, and they start exhibiting bits of their personality...
    I'm glad that you found Sew Creative - it's one of my favourite shops! Our guild meets there too.
    Can't wait to see your progress on the Rose Log Cabin!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
