Stash Report Sunday

So far - today has been an awesome day! We had a little Quilt of Valor sew time, and got QOV's bound, tops finished, and backings made - and a LOT of chit chat!!!  So while I used up some fabric today - I don't quite think it zeroed out what I bought this last week. We went to Grand Junction and there is the cutest fabric shop there - and they just have this cool stuff... and it Jumped into my arms!!

This fabric is part of the Under our Wings program from Quilts of Valor - they got all these fabric companies to produce Red White and Blue fabrics - and I loved these!!!

And then for the girly side in me - some bright stuff  - that I told Wrangler Man I had a plan for.... I just don't have than plan in my mind yet! But I have the fabric!!

So my stash report:

Fabrics Added this Week:   4.77 yards
QOV Fabrics added this week:   5.75 yards
Fabrics added YTD:              174.92 yds   ( gulp)

Fabric Used this Week:     4.805
Fabrics Used YTD:           265.224 Yrds

Total Fabrics BUSTED:    90.30 yards

Which tells me I need to start sewing faster! I kind of had a lull this last week due to our trip, hiking, fishing and chasing boys... but I got re-inspired today with all the QOV sew-ists!

While we were on our trip tho - I took some books! I got "Bride's House" by Sandra Dallas - oh lawsy that was a great book. I am ready to head to Georgetown to see the house!!!

And this one: A rivers Edge by Marie Bostwick. I love her books!

Check out the other stash reports - and find one that makes my purchases look small please - and let me know about it - so I can go - hey Wrangler Man look how much this quilter bought - shouldn't I shop a little more.... and then he will say that I am not to obsessed yet *cough cough*

Mine doesn't make your purchases look small, but it does make your NET look big?

LOL--just like a bunch of women. Does this make my stash look big?

I love your red, white and blue fabrics! Perfect for all of your QOV work!

If you want to show your husband an example of someone who is out of control just show him my stash report. He will be so grateful for you! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Mmmm, pretty. I will have to keep a lookout for this qov fabrics.

Now I know why I won't ever do a stash report--it would make me feel way too guilty!

Pretty fabrics. Those little bits add up quickly, don't they? Luckily DH doesn't say anything about my spending.

I picked up a couple of FQ of the 'thank you' fabric during the shop hope from Quilting Hands shop in Lyons. Now you know where to get it around here.

I purchased some of the same QOV fabrics a couple of weeks ago. Now, to decide on a pattern.

Great new fabric. But you really didn't do much damage. I went shopping yesterday for material for a couple of backs for QOVs and ended up with 35 yards of fabric. I did quite a bit of damage to my checkbook. Thank goodness it was on sale - most of it 40% off!

I love the QoV fabrics also. Such rich colors in them. Your fabric in and out this week cancel out, so not bad at all.
