Stash Report 8.8.10

I love old barns. At the Pomeroy Farm, the big old barn is still a barn in use. They hang several quilts inside and I peeked behind one to see this scene. This reminds me of dad's barn back in the day. When I was in dad's barn the other day, it was all different. He's changed it around a lot since I was a kid. And the smell of the hay! Oh, I love that smell!

There were a few vendors at the quilt show and I felt the need to support one of them. I think she was cleaning out her whole quilt room.....and I helped! She had 2 Brooklyn Revolver cutting mats, one large, one small. They are now mine and she had some flannel. I had to get it, one piece had moose on it and all I could think of was pillowcases so I had to buy a coordinating solid. Hopefully pillowcases will be made soon.

So with the flannel in and the Bento Box fabric out, I am only a half yard up on my net total. But a half yard is better than nothing.

This week's report:
Used this Week: 6.5 yards
Used Year to Date: 170.5 yards
Added this Week: 6 yards
Added Year to Date: 139 yards
Net Used for 2010: 31.5

Poor Judy L is without internet but she was able to post the Mr. Linky box. So head over to Patchwork Times and see how others are doing with their stash.

Old barns usually hold all kinds of treasures for me if only the memories of hiding in the hayloft. You will have that pillowcase done in a jiffy.

We have a small quilt show in a park with old buildings, meaning the quilt shops end up being held in barns. Yes, I like it as well - what a different atmosphere to a real store! As for your stash report every half yard counts..

Old barns can be pretty interesting. Do you ever watch that show on TV of those two guys who are "Pickers" that travel all over searching for stuff. It's pretty funny!

See you worked some numbers. Sounds like you had fun at the barn show. I don't see many barns here, most have been torn down or falling down.

Did you wave as you passed Walla Walla??? Wish I'd known about the Pomeroy show, it's not that far away...
