Stash report week 31

Nothing to report until this week, when I fell off the wagon with a flourish.

First, there was the 20% off entire purchase coupon for Joann' I bought fleece to make a Totoro stuffie, and a couple of blue fabrics to audition for borders for The Lovely Daughter's quilt - which still needs some cats appliqued onto it. Plus a couple of queen-size cotton batts.

Then, today, an unexpected bonus - the Karate Kid forgot all of his fishing tackle at Boy Scout camp and somebody had to go get it. An hour and a half drive - BUT - for only 20 minutes more driving I was in Hershey for Quilt Odyssey!! A yard of blue, four fat quarters, a bag of scraps I'm estimating at 2 yards, 5 spools of thread, a packet of needles and a beautiful Singer 301-A later, I came home, stopping by the camp to pick up the tackle.

Used this Week: .5 yards (the Small Man wanted to make pillows)
Used year to Date: 60.85 yards
Added this Week: 10.5 yards
Added Year to Date: 50.4 yards
Net Used for 2011: 10.45 yards

Yikes! That net used number is going in the wrong direction!!!!!!

Think of adding to your stash as saving for your retirement. And, if prices keep going up you'll be well served with a nice stash!
