I decided to take a little blogging break and with it came a stash report break. I didn't mean for it to be almost two months, but sometimes life gets in the way. Of course that doesn't mean I took a break from shopping and sewing...a girl has to have some fun right?
You might want to grab your favorite beverage and perhaps a snack because we've got some catching up to do. Hope you are ready for some (or a lot) pictures of my pretty fabric!
Flea Market Fancy:
This was no surprise! I have been talking about adding some of this to my stash since I heard it would be re-released! I have to say I'm not disappointed in the least. I take this down from its shelf quite often to admire it.
I do love these Pez prints from American Jane. I missed them the first time around so I couldn't resist this cute little fat quarter pack. I'm sure more will be added later. I will definitely need a little of the red pez!
I love these Pearl Bracelets from Lizzy House. I'm sure before the year is over more will find their way into the stash!
I'm slowly still gathering these prints. I love everything Tula Pink does, but especially this line! Next year I want to make a Single Girl quilt and I think this line will be what I use. I can't wait!
We love Dr Seuss in this house, so I knew we had to have the Grinch fabric for a Christmas quilt. The best part is I found a lot of these on sale!
Once the weather started to turn decidedly Spring/Summer my son and I started talking about the beach. He wants to build a sand castle and jump in the waves. Since I couldn't indulge his snowman fantasies this year (winter never showed up around here) I told him we would hit the beach A LOT this summer. I think this is the perfect quilt fabric for hitting the Maryland and Delaware Beaches. I will have to order more, but I think this is enough to get me started!
I wouldn't want you to think I was completely selfish. I did buy some fabric to make quilts for others.
Red, White and Blue:
I bought some beautiful fabrics to add to my next Quilt of Valor. I don't think you can have too many red, white and blues!
It's the year of the baby for my friends and family. I'm such a trendsetter! I had my two boys and now everybody wants a baby. I think it's because mine are so cute and sweet...most days! :)
All in all not too bad when you think that I spread this out over two months! Especially when you consider I do have a finish to report. I finished my first top for Quilts of Valor in March. In my haste to turn it in, I forgot to take a picture. I will post one when I get it back from the Longarmer.
I hope you've enjoyed looking at my fabric as much as I have! Now I'm off to go finish that baby quilt before my beloved comes back from his mother's with the boys!
Used since February: 4 yards
Used YTD: 16 yards
Added since February: 39.25 yards
Added YTD: 43 yards
Net Added: 27 yards
Not so bad! I still have plenty of time to get back down to zero! I'll just have to go back to my plan of no more buying until I finish at least these two baby quilts!
To see how everyone else is doing, go to Judy's! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
