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!
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!
