This week I was feeling inordinately sorry for myself. Having trouble adjusting to new “young people” in the house. I continue to worry over my mother’s health (although strangely, SHE does not), and I don’t even want to talk about work. And after last week thinking about cotton prices going up, I visited my LQS. not once, but TWICE. The LQS is going out of business, so everything was 50% off. There are lots of bolts left–most with less than 4 yards. I indulged myself in some batiks, a couple really cute prints, and some fabric for a backing (that I used this week). I purchased almost 30 yards, but the average price was less than $5 per yard. So I feel somewhat proud of myself.
Honestly, I don’t have that big of a stash and probably 75% of it is pieces less than a half yard. Some yardage was called for……I fell off the wagon in a big way, but I landed in a bed of roses, you might say.
And since I did some serious work on my UFO of the month, I used lots of fabric. When I put this one on the UFO list and all I had done on it was purchase the fabric and cut some 6 1/2 inch squares–none of this was counted in my stash report before. The top is now complete, I finished quilting it yesterday, sewed the binding on, and am ready to turn the binding and add a label. Picture will be soon…..especially as I want to get this one done before June!
