Oh - did I ever!!!
First, a LQS had a post-market clearance sale. I went in there needing nothing but a few greens for the new Bonnie Hunter mystery. Well, at $1.99/yd, I came away with 9 yards (5 yards of light for a possible backing, right corner).
Then, another 1.25 yards of green for $3.99/yd jumped onto the pile of bolts. Finally, the one I knew I'd have a weakness for, the 108" wide fabric at 25% off plus another 30% off coupon leapt into my arms (top right)!
Guess what, 3 yards of extra wide equals 9 yards of regular fabric. So, before the weekend my stash numbers took a big hit - 19.25 yards! YIKES!! It doesn't look like that much, does it?
Then, at our sew day yesterday, quilty friend Elise brought a big box of fabric from her closet. She's de-stashing!
Well, at first I picked up 3 yards of novelty for pillowcases and bags for DS.
After being near the table full of fabric all day, my will power waned. Thoughts of backing for my Eleanor Burns Victory Quilt crossed my mind and a 6 yard cut moved to my bag (top). Then, thoughts of holes in the stash reminded that there's not much yellow or purple. After that, who can resist a 4 yard cut of floral Robin Pandolph for a possible future backing and a one yard cut of paisley in general?
Yes, my weakness garnered another 16 yards to add to the stash!
I was so looking forward to being in the positive this year but it's just too late. There is no way I can finish another queen size with holiday season looming. It would take more than just one queen size quilt to put the numbers back in balance, so I have my UFO list to give me solice. If Easy Street gets back from the quilter soon, it will be the 4th queen size UFO project crossed from my list this year.
To the numbers......
