Stash Report - Week 46

After my amazing stash busting last week, I was down for the count! I had a fever from Thursday night through Tuesday afternoon and was unable to function well from Saturday through Monday. It was a rough weekend, and in addition to being sick, an incredibly busy week for work. I worked from my bed on Monday, my couch on Tuesday, then back into the office on Wed, and training my department on a new computer system Thursday and Friday. To say I was wiped out in the evenings was an understatement! I had a little energy by Friday night, and really wanted to get down to my frame. After settling a few issues, I was able to get going on a baby quilt and get it finished in under an hour. I spent a couple hours later in the evening making and attaching a scrappy binding to the top. Now, I just need to sew it on and it will be ready to mail to the new baby girl. Here's a sneak peek. 
I did use a little stash for the binding, and my mom returned with a few presents from Quilt Festival in Houston, so the report does have a silver lining this week (and that little schnibble of fabric isn't even a fat eighth, so it doesn't get counted :). 

Fabric added this week: 0
Fabric used this week: 3/8 yard

Fabric added year to date: 38 7/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 126 1/8 yards

Net fabric used: 87 1/4 yards

Hope you are feeling much better. Even with the lousy week looks like busted some stash, which is always a good thing.

Feeling bad and having a job and a family doesn't allow much time for fun stuff. Hope you're feeling MUCH better by now.
