Stash Report 4.18.10

Yesterday was the annual Stash Builder's Bazaar sponsored by the local quilt guild. I went with a plan instead of just going crazy for what I found. I wanted backgrounds, reds, pinks and lavenders and pieces for a small project I have in mind.

I found a couple fat quarters that I had to have--the socks and the cute novelties. The Elvis fabric was gifted to me by my friend Gloria and the pile of smaller scraps from Crystal. I included all of them in my count. The cones of thread are almost new, the beads are gorgeous.

I only spent $48 and figured my purchases values at close to $300 regular price. And I seldom pay regular price but when I am figuring a bargain..........

I'm closer to my 100 yards used......good thing I wasn't going for 100 yards net!

Head over to Judy L's and see how everyone is doing with their stash.

Used this Week: 11.25 yards
Used Year to Date: 80 yards
Added this Week: 20 yards
Added Year to Date: 84.25 yards
Net Used for 2010: -4.25

With all of your plans, you will be out of that shallow hole in no time!

I am so glad to see someone else went shopping! I just could not help myself. A net of 4.25 is nothing to the 80 yards busted!

Glad at least you got great deals even if it didn't help your numbers.

I like your 'yards used' vs 'yards net' - need to keep that in mind... and yep, it was a buying week at my end, too.

Ok that Elvis fabric is great!! The fabric stash builder is great idea. I wish we had that around.
