November Stash Report EEK!

I finally measured all the fabric I bought at the guild auction.  I didn't realize I would be so very lucky ??? to get so much fabric for a mere $31. And once I blew my numbers sky high I decided to support the buy local event the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  Where did I go?  To a local quilt store. Might as well! 

Month of November 

Fabric used:  3.125 yards
Fabric purchased (acquired):  87.375 yards  oh my!
Net fabric ADDED to stash: 84.253 yards   OH DOUBLE MY! 
YEAR To Date 
Year to date fabric used: 64.5 yards
Year to date fabric purchased: 179.625yards
Net Year to Date Acquired : 115.125 yards

Ok, so maybe next year I should skip the guild auction held in November.  I ended up with more than 85 yards of fabric, not including the non-cottons.  Well, except I think one other piece is a mixture of fabric and will make something really cute for Sophia.  (Note to self -- measure and delete that amount from the incoming fabric...) 

You might have noticed I got very little done in the way of finished projects this month.  I actually finished a twin size quilt but most of the blocks were sent to me from the FCQ Equilter group.  I don't count them coming in or going out.  They sent me so many that I didn't have any of my own blocks in the quilt.  I counted the 2 yards used for the backing and binding.  I bought it last month at Mary Jo's.  It was a fat back that I counted as 2 yards in, so only 2 yards out.  I knew I would use it up fairly fast. Sigh.  I should have at least one or two finishes in December even if they aren't very big.  

I'm up at Jenny's house to watch Sophie while Jenny's at a rehearsal for her horn quartet. Her Daddy is out of town.  Sophie and I were playing peek a boo before she went to bed... 

    Where's Sophie?                                                            Here I am! 

Happy Sophia! 
These were taken with my cell phone so not great quality but we were having a great time.  Then it was off to bed with a healthy set of lungs letting me know I wasn't Mommy.  But, she soon gave in and grabbed Ducky.  She sat up looking around for 15 or 20 minutes and all of a sudden she was down and out.  I love the new video monitors available now.  It's fun to see what she is doing in her bed. 

I'm off to do a little bit of stitching on my "secret" project.  I am hoping to have it almost finished by the end of the weekend.  Happy Quilting All! 


  1. Sophie is just adorable. She warmed my heart this morning!! And really after adding all that fabric, my my is all I can say :) It does take a lot to sort through it, wash it, fold organize....with almost 90 yards. What an incredible deal at $31.

  2. Awww, Sophie is cute playing "peek-a-boo." I love that sweet smile.

  3. Sophie's a cutie and deserves you making her something special from your stash.
