Stash Report Week # 43... A Public Service Message

Judy L has certainly set the bar high for fabric accumulation this week!  Remember Envy is a bad thing... LOL

I did add 3 yards of homespuns to my stash this week.  But I'm not happy about it.  I hate it when shops have a minimum of 1/2 yard on regular priced fabric.  I don't mind if it's sale fabric because I realize they are trying to get that stuff out the door - but if it's regular priced goods you should be able to buy a 1/3 of a yard without paying an additional .25 per cut.

I went ahead and got 1/2 yard cuts... but I won't shop there as often as I might otherwise.

As a Public Service (to help y'all use up some of your stash) I've added a list of Links to Manufacturers Free Patterns over in my side bar.  I rechecked them all today to be sure they all still go someplace.  I'm sure you have nothing else to do today...

Speaking of doing nothing... I best get busy as I have a Porta Pocket Insert to make today to prepare for an upcoming class.  I'll try and post again later with pictures of my progress and links to the Pattern Mfg.

So 3 yards in - 2 yards out to a project... still no spreadsheet.

WOW, it must have taken you quite some time to compile that list of links. Thank you!

Looking forward to seeing the finished pocket pattern. I will be spending time checking the links you posted. And could I PLEASE have some of the seeds from the pumpkin you grew? We don't have any like that available here, and I LOVE to grow pie pumpkins!

I had compiled most of the list a few months ago - but updated it when a quilty friend sent a link I didn't have. I remembered at that point that it was something I wanted to post on the blog... so here ya are!

Lori I'll save ya some seeds!
