This week in Judy L's Stashbusting Report she notes that there are just 10 weeks left... 10... only 10 weeks to this year. Did someone spill coffee on a 'Master Calendar' somewhere? We seem to be zipping along.
This week I am reporting yardage for a double duty project. I'll use it as a sample for the quilt shop and as my selection for a 'Pick a Number' group challenge with quilty friends. You could join the challenge too - as always the More the Merrier! Check for a later post titled Pick a Number Please!
Stashbusting Report - I picked up a yard of green and a total of 4 yards worth of FQ's in reds, blues and greens for the project so they'll show as an in and out this week. I also pulled from my stash another variety of FQ's and misc. pieces - that's 3 yards.
I know I've got more fabric pulled than I need - problem with applique projects is that you use a little bit of a lot of things to have the variety... but I may also make this project bigger too so it won't be wasted. After looking through no less than 6 small scrap bins I've decided that I need to start cutting up my leftovers rather than just setting them aside.
Interesting thing I noted as I rummaged through my FQ and Scrap bins... I have no purples outside of a few in the vintage fabric category and those are few and far between. I'm just not a purple kinda gal - so when I am accumulating fabric for no other reason than to accumulate - purple just isn't on my radar. In my life I can only remember buying one purple shirt... it was one of those billowy smock type maternity tops we so fashionably wore in the 70's. I hated it when I bought it - but it was better than the bright pink ones on the rack.
Oh and speaking of color... check out this cheddar colored cauliflower I bought this week. I was after the white... But the Amish farmer had 2 heads for $3.00 - or I could get 3 heads for $4.00 so I grabbed the cheddar colored one too. Guess what other color he had that I passed on? Purple... LOL
Purple would have looked funny in this soup don't ya think? I hadn't added the cream yet in this picture. Boy was it yummy! I took a quart to my in-laws and put a 2 qt and 1qt container in the freezer. I may freeze up some individual servings today after lunch... if there is any left.
So my report...
- In this week: 5 Yards
- Out this week: 8 Yards
Still no spreadsheet... but that's not new - I'm pretty consistent about that.
