Stash Report - May 6

Another bad week for my stash report.  4 yards of fabric arrived, from the set I ordered to finish my son's quilt.  Unfortunately, none of it is the right shade, so I hunted through some fabric stores today. And found it!!  But they only had 3/4 yard and I need 2 yards :(  I will keep hunting - at least now I know the colour code.  I did order this shade from the UK, but it hasn't arrived yet and the seller is not answering my email.  Hopefully it will arrive eventually.  In the meantime, I bought the 3/4 yard, and got up the nerve to start on the border.  I used 1 3/4 yards of fabric (the background I had left, plus some of the blues).  I'm short on two of the blues, also - but I'll just shift the design a bit to make that work.

So my totals for this week - 4.75 yards in.  1.75 yards out. Still heading in the wrong direction.  I wonder if it will turn around soon.

Totals this year:
54 1/4 yards out, 90 1/4 yards in
Net for 2012: 36 yards in

  1. It's not the direction, it's the journey. :)

  2. I find buying fabric online, unless I know the numbers of the fabric, is taking a chance. I usually try to buy fabrics from a shop, but sometimes online buying is the only way to go. Hope you get the fabric you need. Enjoy your day.

  3. Oh yes, you will get going in the other direction! It is so difficult to know what you're getting online, isn't it? Enjoy the creative juices that flow as you adjust your border and finish your project!
