Sunday Stash Report

I used up about 2 yards of fabric this week. Made some tote bags. I had a big week of cleaning. In all that mess, I found a project from 4 years ago. I made a strip quilt of bright and planned to use the cut off strip to make mitered squares. Hmmm, forgot all about it.

I made squares last night and today to join the row. It will be a crib sized quilt. I think it will go in the craft show this fall. Pics on the design wall tomorrow.

So for all my misery in spring cleaning, it is nearing the end. Yeah, I have more fun things to do.

Total: 2 totes with added stash from a friend. It will be amazingly small by the end of the year. I am making thing to sell and practice new ideas for my long arm quilting!

I have yet to venture into making tote. Two yards of fabric is good considering all the organizing you have been doing. I always think I will remember all about a project I put away, but never do.

I do craft shows also, at times I can get on a roll and use up lots of fabric in a week and then others not much depending on what I am working on.

It is always fun to make totes like that!Enjoy it all!

That's so funny that you forgot about that project. I found some blocks a few months ago tht I'd bought on Ebay and totally forgot about.

It happens to the best of us.

spring cleaning is only a thought here! Sometimes its fun to clean and sort the sewing room, last time I found two pieces of fabric I had completely forgot I had!

I have not deep cleaned closets in several years. I just got on a roll this spring to get rid of excess. My little house was bursting at the seams. I decided that I need to finish things I start so I am not pulling old forgotten things out of closets again!!

I am hoping the craft show goes well, I am placing a lot of energy into projects for it!! I am busting up stash so the cost is minimal for fabrics, I already have it!!
