Sunday Stash Report - Week 36

I finally got the last border on the Steelers Quilt! Although I counted most of the top out when I finished that, so I just get to count the last border.
I also mailed off four giveaway fat quarters. Enhancing someone else's stash report!
My LQS gives you 15% off for your birthday, so I picked up...almost nothing. I guess that's what happens when your birthday is so close to Fat Quarter Frenzy. I grabbed two yards of my favorite neutral, a half yard of the neutral in my Tennessee Waltz quilt, the panel for my Saturday Sampler, and the next sampler block. The panel says Mother, Daughter, Sister and Grandmother - it'll be pieced into the backing.

Used this Week: 1.88
Used Year to Date: 92.85
Added this Week: 3.42
Added Year to Date: 139.62
Net Used for 2011: (46.77) yards

Check out how everyone else is doing on Patchwork Times! Judy's challenging us to set a higher goal in the last four months of the year. I'd like to get into the black, so that means busting a little more than half of what I've busted in eight months. (Assuming no new purchases...)

In addition, my husband and I started a pay-per-mile running program. Run a mile, get a dollar - his for computer games, mine for fabric. Luckily, we made the deal on Wednesday, the day after I picked up my neutrals. So now I really have to earn each yard...or work from my stash.


  1. At least it is cooling down so running would be as hard to's still a wonderful 65 degrees. Time to throw open all the windows and let some fresh air through the house!

    Thanks for the FQs. I forgot about writing down what my revised goal will be. I think I would just like to meet my goal of 60 yds busted, but I've also avoided looking at my stashbusting goals for the year. I probably need to do that....liz

  2. You are going to have to work hard for that new fabric! Loving the Steelers' quilt.
