Stash Report

So last week I took a break from stash report and Design Wall Monday. Just because - and it was too hot to think at least for me :) And yes, I added some fabric and sewed some, but overall seem to be going into the wrong direction. Still ahead, but losing ground...
I came across Westminster Rowan (?)/ Kaffe Fassett fat quarters for a buck - at JAF of all places. And I could not resist.

Then Judy from my quilt guild told me about a garage fabric sale in my neighborhood and I found some earth colored fabric for my aunt's surprise quilt.
This photo is for my mom who suggest earth colors: the music fabric was the only one I had in my stash... (and one of these days I will be able to take better pictures)
So that came home with me, too.
But the good news is: I quilted Cowboy Circle and 1 baby quilt; a 2nd one is on the machine waiting for its turn. I cut fabric for a Fishing Circle quilt and finished 2 blocks for the jelly roll quilt along. 
There is some power sewing on schedule for today!
Here are my totals:

Stash report week 27 & 28 combined / 2010:
Fabric used this week: 4.5 yrds
Fabric used year-to-date: 131.5yrds
Fabric added this week: 14 yrds
Fabric added year-to-date: 102.15yrds
Net used in 2010: 29.35yrds

Please go and check other stash reports at Judy's Patchwork Times!

Quickly moving to the fitness report: before and after the heat wave I managed to fit in quite some inline skating and a few walks.
Fitness Report week 27 & 28 / 2010:
Visits at Lifetime: 1
Walks: 5
Skates: 5 times
Skate miles: 36 miles (not bad for me even though total for 2 weeks)
Total Cardio: 6.5 hrs

I hope you are enjoying the weekend - I am so glad the temperatures are back in the 80s!


  1. Hi Barb - you have a great eye for color. One of the earth-tone fabrics from the garage sale was one I almost bought but couldn't think of where I would use it. It's the 4th fabric from the left in your photo. We have good taste!! Your workout regime is impressive. I walked 3 times this week for 1.5 hours. Yahoo for me!! Hope to see you soon.

  2. You are doing great on the stashbusting!

  3. I think you should be able to make Judy count the stuff from the yard sale. After all it is her fault. ;0) But really, you are still in the black. I think that counts for something.


Thank you for your comment - you made my day!
