Stash Report #4

Good morning everyone! I hope you are all doing good and are safe and sound. The weather around here was crazy yesterday and last night! Tornados popping up everywhere, hail, recorded winds in places as high as 151 miles per hours – yes, that’s one hundred and fifty-one. A Wal-Mart in Warner Robins, GA actually lost part of their roof and the store was flooding! There was a wave of bad weather yesterday afternoon around 2pm, a second wave last night around 4am (yes, we were all awake!), and there’s supposed to be a third wave early this afternoon. Fingers crossed. Anyhow, onto the stash report. πŸ™‚ 

Fabric Used (or removed) this Week: 5.6 yards
Fabric Used year to Date: 7 1/3 yards
Fabric Added this Week: 2 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 8.5 yards + 3 panels
Net Fabric for 2017: 3 panels ADDED + 1 3/8 yards USED
I’m not sure how to count the panels so I figured I’d just keep them listed separate from regular yardage since most of the time they are less than a yard.

Yarn Used (or removed) this Week: 0 yards
Yarn Used year to Date: 1,220 yards
Yarn Added this Week: 0 yards
Yarn Added Year to Date: 2044 yards
Net Yarn for 2017: 824 yards ADDED
I did actually use yarn and finish projects (the tops of the dresses for my little girl), however, my scale batteries died and I’m not sure how much yarn I used… So I guess I’ll just save those totals for next week.

Pieces of Clothing Used (or removed) to upcycle / restyle this Week: 0

Net Pieces of Clothing Purchased to upcycle / restyle for 2017: 5 pieces USED

The 2 yards of fabric that I purchased was this pretty, fine tulle that my little girl picked out and asked me to make her a dress from. How could I say no to that? Plus it was on sale for $1 per yard!!! *score* I’m thinking I’ll make her birthday dress from it since it will fit into the Unicorns & Rainbows theme she decided on. Now I just have to pick out a pattern. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the top is actually a pretty green while the bottom is a baby blue. 

The fabric I used included 3 yards total from 4 different fabrics for the dresses I’m making for her right now that have the crochet tops (this is where the yarn used is for as well). Plus, I cut out all 28 base blocks for the Caught Ya! BOM that I’m making for hubby. So far I’ve made 4 of the blocks and have pulled all the fabric for the applique from my scrap drawers and haven’t even noticed a dent. We’ll see though because these pieces seem like they’ll use up my big scrap pieces quickly. I’ll either have to go to the fabric on my shelves in the near future, or I’ll piece together smaller scraps to make fabric to cut out for the applique. We’ll see how ambitious I’m feeling. πŸ˜‰ 

How about you? Did you use or add any fabric or yarn to your stash this past week?

    1. Thanks Erin! We got very lucky earlier today with the storms. There was a huge tornado that was headed straight for us but disipated right before it came into our rural town. The few towns in it’s path before ours wasn’t so lucky tho… πŸ™ They had confirmed winds of at least 154 mph!

  1. Hope you are still missing the worse of the storm. Your daughter picked out a very pretty piece of fabric for a dress. She has good taste in fabrics. Maybe she will follow your lead and learn to sew,

    1. Yes we did miss the worst thankfully! The supercell with the tornado(s) in them dissipated right before they came to our rural town. Yes she does! She should, she’s been going to the fabric and craft stores with me since she was a baby. She has taken to picking out a fabric every time we go now! LOL She loves it when I sew her things and says they’re the best. Plus, she’s already making her own first quilt! I cut 8″ square blocks of fabric out, she spent almost 2 hours on the floor arranging and rearranging them. Now, we’re in the process of sewing them together. I operate the foot pedal and she does the rest – matching up the fabric square edges, putting on the machine, and guiding it thru the sewing machine. She’s a smart little girl. She already does hand embroidery & plastic canvas with me too. I love it!

    1. Thanks Terri! I hope it’s not… It’s specially scary since we’d have to leave our house if one was coming. We live in an old (1940’s) wood house that’s not very sturdy and wouldn’t be able to take it.
