No more fabric anorexia!

That’s correct – my period of fabric anorexia has ended.  Well, I made it almost a month!  A friend of my sister’s took me to a wonderful quilt store on the east side of Edmonton.  Lori’s Country Cottage.  I caved.  I saw this awesome black material in the clearance section … then I found out that if I bought 8 meters, it would be $7.50 / meter.  The black was 3 meters … so I also bought 5 meters of neutrals.  No more fabric anorexia!

PHD #4 DONE!!!

I brought 3 “Retreat Bags” to work on.  This is the small bag.  I did the quilting after taking a “Zen-doodle” class last year … It was fun to do the quilting.  The pattern is free at Emmeline Bags .  You can also purchase the wire frames from her as well.  

PHD Update

So far this year, I have completed 4 UFOs.  My goal for the year, for my PHD,  is 28, that means I have 24 left to complete.  There is a total of 56 UFOs left.

Stash Report

I just realized that I did not include the fabric that I used to complete the Flannel Fat Quarter quilt.  There were 2 packages of 8 fat quarters … so that’s 4 yards and 6 yards for the back … so another 10 yards.  Then there’s another yard for my latest finish.

Fabric Used this Week:     1  yards

Fabric Added this Week:    8  yards 
Fabric Added Year to Date: 8.5 yards
