Hum, the fourth Monday of September and I am just now sharing my stashbusting statistics for August. Pitiful, isn't it? I think the main issue is I didn't want to figure out fabric usage for my spring sampler quilt. So I came up with the amount for a 6.5" square and added 25% for seams or appliqué. It's probably correct for some of the blocks and too little or too much for a few. But at least I'm moving forward! It was a decent month when I realized I only brought in a half yard. Whoop! Whoop! Here are the numbers:
Fabric In Month
Fabric In Year
Fabric Out Year
In or Out Year

Go to Virginia State fair; man VaStar booth
Several of this week's goals are must do activities. I've already started some work preparing projects for the retreat. I'm trying to decide how many I want to take for 4 nights and about 4+ days. It's longer than usual and I'm guessing my stamina isn't what it used to be but I also don't want to run out of projects to work on. Decisions, decisions.
I'm ready to finish my current book. I don't know why all sorts of ebooks I've put on hold at the library are coming in at the same time. Good grief. I've had to postpone several and they keep coming in even though many were listed to come at many weeks later than I actually was notified they were ready. I haven't spent as much time reading in the last two weeks so hopefully I'll actually get all of them read before the due dates.
Here's my favorite Monday Linky parties. You know the drill -- spend the time visiting some and go forth into the Internet to read lots of blogs. You never know when you'll see a particularly fabulous quilt that inspires you to make one similar! I'll be back to link up the rest once they are available.
Thanks for all the get well wishes for Pat. He's feeling much better but still has drippy sinus. I plan to test soon before I go to my chorus rehearsal. Hopefully I'll continue to test negative for Covid.
Here's a visitor to the backyard this morning. This is a juvenile mourning dove from what I can tell. He sat at the top of the steps from the studio to the backyard for 5 or 10 minutes all puffed up. I wonder if he is friends with the squirrel who visited a few weeks ago.
Happy Quilting all! Bonnie
