Short Sunday post (stash report week 27)

Oak Leaf Hydrangeas are quite common here
 Greetings, Everyone!

Since this is my 3rd post since last Sunday, there's not much to add.  You pretty much know what I've been doing all week on my stay-cation.  I made a new bag (this post), basted a bunch of hexies (this post), and did a bit of herb harvesting and gardening (this post).

Yesterday DS attended his first birthday party of one of his school friends at a local park.  The heat index hit 109 degrees here yesterday.  Of course, the kids didn't notice but we were quite wilted after those 2 hours.

I did go to my LQS to get some fabric for the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap, of which I am a new member.  My partner wants pink floral petals.  Guess what I do not have in my stash -- any pink floral.  So, I bought 3- 1/8 yd cuts, 2 florals and 1 polka dot for me.

I made an organizer for my bag.  Very, very simple - the fastest thing I've made in ages!  I used some scraps and this tutorial.  Need a tutorial?  Check out Hundreds of Sewing Links at Yarn or Fabric - great variety.

When we picked up DS we stopped for about 20 minutes at Angie's Nine Patch in Effingham, IL, for the first time.  Loads of fabric that I successfully resisted.  However, they had all sorts of embroidery and crochet supplies that I could use in the Clover & Violet Embroidery 101 QAL.

My block 1 isn't finished yet and block 2 was released this week.

I bought one perle cotton ball and some of those little boards for winding floss on.  I'm sure there's someplace in the metro area that sells perle cotton but I haven't located one yet.  So, I've been using what I can find at Joann's, where there isn't much choice.

Now I can keep some of my perle cotton and DS's floss from tangling. soon as I start stitching, he wants to "sew," too. are the numbers:

This week's numbers:
Used this Week: 1.5
Used year to Date: 41.5
Added this Week:  0.375
Added Year to Date:  66.675
Net Used for 2011:   -25.175
