Stash Report 4.11.10

Yes, I'm trying to distract you with chocolate chip cookies! Did it work?

My friend, Sonya, went to a quilter's sale. I don't understand how anyone could get rid of all their quilting stuff but this lady wanted to. Sonya was nice enough to call me to invite me to go but I was sick. She had been there the day before so knew what the lady had to offer. She had bags of scraps and strips, my weakness. I do fine with yardage, I usually have a plan when I buy it but if I see scraps and strings in bags, I want them and I want them all, especially if they are $1 a bag! So I asked her to get me 10 bags.

So I kind of spread out what was in a bag of scraps and estimated about a yard in each bag. The strip bags probably have 2 yards or so in each bag. So that's what I'm using for my stash report.

I even know what I want to do with the strips and can't wait to get started on that project. I've already used lots of the scraps on the project I'm working on now.

I'm still working toward my goal of 100 yards used by May 1. Weeks like this are going to slow me down but I have my plan. ;-) Wait until you see my next week numbers!

Used this Week: 0 yards
Used Year to Date: 69 yards
Added this Week: 13 yards
Added Year to Date: 64.25 yards
Net Used for 2010: 4.75

Go over to Judy L's to see how others are doing with their stash.

Well, choc chip cookies work for me :))
After all you have a plan, and you are still reporting - so many have already dropped off. So give yourself some credit and I cross my fingers for your May 1st goal. That would mean we are going to see some nice quilt photos soon from yoru newest creations... Can't wait!

Funny about those scraps, I'm having a had time tossing them, I donated yardage but not the scraps.

What a great friend Sonya is to share those great bags of scraps and strips. Can't wait to see what you do with all of it.

Aside from the fabric, I really would like a cooking or two. LOL
