Stash Report

Things here have been crazy.  Over the last two weeks we have had the flu…went away for a three days…got the taxes prepped and done…Put up with big weather swings….ripped apart two rooms in the house because of furniture acquisitions that I still haven’t told you about…My Kindle died…I prepped and taught a new continuing education class…and now to top it off, we are contemplating a move.

On top of all that I am back to chauffeur.  Remember when our daughter rolled our pickup in November.  Well she was 17 and on Iowa’s graduated license program.  She got no ticket in the whole process but they did take her license away for 30 days.  UGH.  It’s not been that bad for her but for Hubby and I, YUCK.  We have to drive her to meet a co-worker who drives her the rest of the way.  We have to sometimes drive all the way as her co-worker doesn’t have the same days to work…she’s been working full time and town is 20 minutes away.  She has EMT classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays 30 minutes in the opposite direction…UGH.  I drop her off and then hang out in town for three hours until she is done!  We have two more weeks of this and then it is over…THANKFULLY!!  I know I shouldn’t complain…I honestly am just so glad that she and her friend were okay after the accident.

In the meantime…have I sewn?   NO!  Not at all.  I think that’s why I am a little crazy!!

Even though I haven’t been sewing, fabric has still been coming.

Marcus Brother’s sent us some amazing fabrics.  Here are 19th Century Backgrounds…and a Just Judie Quilt Competition Pack.


And here is the Tavern Blues collection.


I got a box of fabric from Moda too.  Here are Paintbox Batiks for an upcoming Moda Bake Shop project.  This line isn’t out yet to the public but oh, oh I love it.  It’s my first batik experience…I can’t wait to cut in.


I am not counting this fabric in now but will count it in and out once the project is finished as this really doesn’t even go in my stash.

This week I did finish a project..EASY STREET.  If you missed it, you can read about it here.

Here are my numbers…

Used this Week:   11 yards

Used year to Date:  36 yards  +  13.5 Moda fabric + 6 yards of recycled fabric…

  1. I know you are so proud of your daughter and her accomplishments, graduating, working, college, EMT school….You will enjoy sewing with Batiks. Moving is never a easy decision.
