Stash report- Week 7
What's a girl supposed to do? It's been about 3 months since I visited a quilting store. I finally was told to start walking longer distances than just in the house, with support. The support could be a shopping cart! It was also Super Bowl weekend sales. I couldn't drive yet, so I just had to go wherever my friend took me. At the first shop (Eudora, KS) I picked up the fabrics in the left picture. Two of the greens are for stash (I sure use a lot of those lately), but the rest are for projects (UFOs) that I hope to work on soon. The second shop (Lee's Summit, MO), I definitely needed to add a few batiks for the Timberline Log Cabin bin to fill in fabrics with a little more blue that green. I don't want it exactly like the Opportunity Quilt I worked on. The right picture is 12 yards of wonderful fabric I bought through Stashbuster Fling-it. I couldn't resist these fabrics for $3-4 a yard.
DH helped me set up a spreadsheet similar to Judy L's
The results weren't very good for Stashbusting:
Added this week (or so) 31.5 Yards
Used this week- 0.125 of fairy fabric to put hearts on DGD#1's shirt for Valentine's Day.
On a personal note, my ortho doc injected my hip, which relieved the bursitis and sciatica, which included the bulk of the foot pain; the new orthotics for my shoes arrived last Friday, so I have been able to stop using a cane, start driving short distances, and certainly have an improved outlook on life. I still need to work on strengthening the new knee, but at least things are improving. I did cancel attending the Guild Quilt Retreat next weekend, as I still haven't been able to sew at the machine yet, though I plan to practice on that this week. Maybe next year. I should be in good shape to attend the HeartStrings NE sew-in in March. I'm really looking forward to it.
