October Stash Busting

Here it is the bad news.

Fabric In Oct.       11.125 yards          Fabric In 2012       93.42
Fabric Out Oct.      7.785                   Fabric Out 2012     83.470

Hum, what can I say other than I've been a shopping fool.  Of course, much of my foolishness has been geared to Scrap Squad #5 and #6.  #5 is coming along very nicely and should be done in the next week or so.  #6 I've planned the fabric but haven't gotten much beyond that.  I have at least one of my quilts ready to be quilted but haven't taken the time as I'm busy on #5.  

Here's a photo of a cute teddy bear quilt I did for a customer. 

I used a lot of different fills to do the bear body but just couldn't figure out what to do to his head.  So gave her eyelashes, a little mouth, echoed the heart and gave curves to the inside of the ears.  But never could figure outwhat to do with the forehead.  Sigh.  I may not agree to do custom quilting again.  The pink is a little brighter than this because these were taken at night. 

On to the studio!  Happy quilting all.
