It is funny, I'm not buying fabric, but my stash isn't shrinking very fast either. Partly because I've not been completing many quilts and partly because I've been very lucky this year and won some awesome giveaways.
So my stash report for this month is pretty lame. Since I was the queen in both bees I participate in, I didn't have any blocks to make, so my fabric out is zilch. Well there is a chance I could get something quilted next week if my knee holds together. But I did receive about 2.5 yards of fabric from Inch Worm Fabrics as a prize from a giveaway. Now I'm not going to turn down free fabric, I'm trying to do better not go insane. So here are my numbers for this year.
Now for Sunday Stash, I received my winnings which was a fat quarter bundle of Riley Blakes' Calico Days. I picked the green/tan colorway, because those are both colors where my stash is limited and because I really loved the color combo. I won the fabrics from Inch Worm Fabrics and she added a Island Batik mini roll, which is very cool too. At this time I don't have any specific plans for this fabric, but I'm not adding it to my FQ bins until I'm sure I don't want to use it as a set.
Over all I think I'm doing pretty good, last year at this time I had already placed 8-10 fabric orders, not to mention the trips to the local fabric shop. Now don't get me wrong I've been tempted, but so far I've been good at resisting it. In fact I'm doing the Piggy Bank Quilting Challenge again this year and I keep a box on my desk where I toss my change. Over the last couple of months if I saw a sale where I liked something, but resisted, I tossed a dollar or two or three into the box. This week when I was cleaning my desk I noticed the box was very heavy. So I decided to count it to see where I was at, and I have about $200 in my box, not bad at all. And the biggest portion was the paper money I had tossed in it when I was good. Not sure what I will purchase with it when it is time to break it open, but it is nice to know I have a little cash stash to work with in the future. I'm going to link up with Molli Sparkles Sunday Stash and Patchwork Times Stash Report.
