Stash Report 12/11/16: STLMQG Loot

This was a good week for stash movement. I finished my Bohemian Bento Box quilt. I had previously counted the yardage used for the top, but I added an additional border, so that was 5/8 yard used. Binding for it was 1/2 yard, and I used 1-7/8 yards of wide backing. So, 3 yards OUT.

Yesterday STLMQG held their annual ticket raffle fundraiser and my bee held our Christmas party/gift exchange. I won a jelly roll and a bundle of 8 FQs of low volume prints at the ticket raffle. My bee swap partner gave me three more FQs of Cotton & Steel, plus a thread cutter ring. And one of the girls made thread spool ornaments for each of us.

I'm not sure how to count the jelly roll, but I'll count the 11 FQs as 2-3/4 yards IN.

I'm in the black for the year so far, and I have no plans for serious stash enhancement between now and the end of the year. Hopefully the year-end sales don't entice me to go crazy!

I'm having some computer issues. I'll post a Design Wall post tomorrow morning, but no posts for awhile after that. My laptop is going in for a spa treatment and they quoted me seven days but said they might be able to get it done sooner. I guess I'll have lots of time to sew since I won't be on line so much.

So sorry to have to use word verification, but the spam has gotten unbearable lately.
