sunday stash..wk13

Sunday, March 28, 2010
i didn't have much time to sew this week.
and i went to the AQS show in lancaster.
& despite planning on not buying much... well you know how it goes....

fabric OUT
charity block fabric
pillow fabric

fabric IN

full moon forest fat quarters
you know i can't resist tula pink.. even if it has been hacked up into fat quarters


a slew of charm packs


a few scrap bags


nest fat quarters


nest yardage


french general yardage


and some more.
oh well.. there is always next week!


one of the coolest things i bought
were the "mini bolts" by polar notions
they are 1/2 the size of regular blots... & made of acid free plastic...
each one of these has 6 1/2 yards on them!!
it's gonna take some time to get my stash onto them
and in order... but it'll be worth it!


so this week
36 in
2.75 out

YTD totals
purchased: 277.29 yds
busted: 186.08 yds
net: -91.21 yds

what about you?

I love that charm pack! I will have to look for it!

This afternoon, I made a little pin cushion and a small (8" x 12") table topper using 2" squares. The binding is perfect, but I still think it is quite cute :)

Trisha said...

Those mini bolts look so awesome!! I love how you can put the fabrics together and fold the ends so that you can see all that you have on the bolt.

Those fabric bolts are great--you did such a good job of getting the fabric on them, too! I may have to look into getting a few for myself.

Nest is such a wonderful collection. I love Tula, too!

Great purchases, and I know they will end up in some fantastic projects...or look nice on shelves in your studio. Do like the hexagon project too.

Gosh, those mini bolts are awesome! If they weren't little steep for my grad student pockets, I'd be on them in a heartbeat!

Considering all the fabric that you saw, this doesn't seem like too much to come home with! I'm intrigued by the mini bolts.

Hold the phone.... It isnt quite April and you've bought 277 yards of fabric???? Is this right? holy mole-ee. How do I get my husband to agree to this?

rachael said...

well my fabric mistress, if you're buying scrap bags, i'm going to keep ongoing scrap bags in the house for you. you'll have fabric treats waiting for you each time you come over and i've got 2 quillows to finish in 2 months. oh babyshowers bring may flowers.
