Stash Report / Sunday Stash

Before we get to the nitty gritty, Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!! I hope each of you has a day filled with love and laughter and maybe even some chocolate!!!! Well the numbers for the last couple of weeks have been going in the wrong direction, but not because I purchased anything.  I have won two giveaways and I want to be honest in my reporting. I did add a column for gifts, so that I can track if I bought or not. I am really surprised that neither Sharla or I have fallen off of the wagon yet. And I still look at the 24 hour flash sale at Fat Quarter Shop and all the sale notices I get from different stores, but each time I ask myself do I love it more than what I already have and the answer is no. I did finish a quilt top last week, but I don't get to count it as gone until the quilt is finished, but I feel like progress is being made.

Since I've received fabric as a gift I have the opportunity to show you my new stash additions. The first came from PennyDog Patchwork where I won her Sew Mama Sew giveaway. It was 2 half yard cuts of Cotton + Steel Backgammon prints by Melody Miller, a copy of Popular Patchwork and then she made this awesome pouch for me as well.  The backgammon prints are too cool, I love them.

Then I was lucky again and won a bundle of fabric from UpStairsHobbyRoom and Fabric Please!. Sandy at UpStairsHobbyRoom is a series called One Block Wonders and she had a sneak peak for February's block and giveaway and I won. Now this fabric could not have been more perfect for me because it was by Basic Grey, and I love everything they do. The line is Mon Ami and I've been eyeing it but haven't wanted break my fabric fast. So I get some fabric and I love and didn't have to buy anything.  Yeah me!!!

I've always considered myself blessed, I live in a free country, I have family and friends who love me, I have a job, home and car and lastly I get to do something I love on a regular basis. But weeks like this where fabric appears for free, just makes me know that I am truly blessed.  I want to thank PennyDog Patchwork, UpStairsHobbyRoom and Fabric Please! for their wonderful gifts to me.


  1. The backgammon prints are really fun; congratulations on your fabric wins and Happy Valentine's Day! :)

  2. Wow, so wonderful for you that you got more fabric but you still got to keep your pledge not to buy any more. Truly blessed indeed.

  3. Congrats on your fabric wins! All great fabrics.

  4. Love the fabrics, and free! Too cool!

  5. I just won a voucher from Fabric Please and Jenn (A Quarter Inch from the Edge). I am going to browse for a while before I choose.
    Like you, I have done well on my fabric restraint. I did have to crack and buy some white thread and white fabric last week. I was trying to buy nothing, but it seemed silly to use 'good' fabric when I didn't have anything plain to line cushions.


I love hearing from you!!! Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment!!!!!
