I had such great plans to break even this year, to use as much fabric as I acquired. The quilting gods have conspired against me and led me into temptation, with a little help from my friends. Yesterday my friends mentioned a LQS that's closing and has all their fabrics for 57% off if you pay cash. Who can pass that up? It's in a part of the county I rarely get to so of course I had to go check it out. We all did.
IN this week, 14 yards. I spent less than $70 including the tax, so worth it to take the hit to my stash report!
OUT this week, 1-3/4 yards for CJ's texture quilt. (I'm not counting fleece, minkee, etc. in the stash report, only quilting cotton.)
Unless I can manage to use 22 yards this month, I won't be able to break even for the year.
But at such good prices, I scored some great stash enhancers! First, six yards of neutral backing which I'll use for Antler Dance, and a masculine print I can use in donation quilts.
Some excellent black & white prints, plus a great coral Quilter's Canvas that Cherie found. We both got some of the text print. That stripe will be perfect for a binding on something.
A couple more prints that are gender-neutral for donation quilts. If I'm going to give a quilt to charity, better to pay less for the fabric, but these are still quilt shop quality. Score!
And finally, a gorgeous green crosshatch that Cherie found and thought it was so "me". And a green because I was looking in my stash in for this shade last week and couldn't find anything.
So I won't hit net zero for the year, but my stash is richer for it, and I'm very much okay with that.
So you girls that are such enablers (and you know who you are!), how much did you go home with?
