2014 Stash Report Week 4

Yards in: 0.0
Yards out: 7.5
Cumulative yards in: 3.5
Cumulative yards out: 11.3
Net gain/loss: 7.8 USED

Spending this week: $1.75
Spending this year: $4.25

The 7.5 yards out is from finishing an old UFO, blogged about here.

The $1.75 spent is from another thrift store buy. I'd made up my mind not to go this week (it's COLD outside!!) but TMOTH called from karate, and The Karate Kid had forgotten his gear bag. Since I took it over, I stopped and bought the bag of buttons I didn't buy last week ($1.50) plus a bag with a couple of bracelets I can scavenge some beads from (a quarter).

These are the unopened bags:




For some reason, there were also a dozen shark teeth in the button bag!



These are the buttons. Mostly modern buttons, mostly boring (but useful), but there are a few nice vintage buttons in the mix and a couple of really pretty modern ones.

Bead bracelets. Also, a baggie with some seed beads and sequins, likely from a beaded sweater.

Love your finished quilt. Great memories every time you snuggle under it. Nice pile of buttons and shark teeth!

That looks like a very comfy quilt! You brought some great things home from the thrift store. I really need to stop by the ones around here and see what they have!

You've done pretty well on the stash busting front.
