I've been a bad, bad girl...
I did get a lot of sewing done this week, but still no finishes yet. Once I can make that happen I know my report will start moving in the right direction!
I am finding that trying to not buy fabric isn't working for me. I think maybe a better approach might be to limit the number of projects I have going at one time. One of my big purchases this week was for the Super Nova Quilt Along. I bought nine yards of Innocent Crush because I've been eyeing that line since it came out and I think it will be perfect for the quilt. I do feel a little guilty, but it will be beautiful! Some things are just worth it! I hope that I will have better luck finishing this project since I am quilting along with others, that's the plan anyway!
To celebrate National Quilting Day I went to one of my local shops who was having a great sale. If I brought in an item for a local shelter I would receive 25% off my total purchase. Fortunately for me I happened to have a large supply of the most needed item at the shelter: diapers! It was a win-win situation: the shelter got a lot of diapers, and I was able to get rid of the ones that no longer fit Graham and I got a good discount! I took advantage of this opportunity to buy basics like more Kona Snow and polka dots for bindings.
I am glad I was able to buy the fabric at a discounted price because fabric prices seem to have risen in my area already. I noticed most of the fabric had gone up at least $2 a yard! Yikes! I will definitely have to start using what I have because it seems quilting is going to become a very expensive hobby!
Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 9 yards
Added this week: 17 yards
Net Used YTD: -41.5 yards
Wow, I really need to get sewing! It's only March and I've reached most people's goal number, but instead of 50 yards used, it's bought! Oh well, it's been fun!
