As I showed earlier this week, I made a couple small projects this week, and they resulted in my only stash changes this week. I think that is especially impressive since I visited four quilt shops on Friday on a one-day trip to the NQA show in Columbus, OH.
My mom and I left in the morning and made stops in Richmond, IN, and then three in Columbus before getting to the show. The show was more expensive than prior years ($15!), and wasn't quite as good. The quilts were comparable, but it felt like there were fewer than they've had before - maybe there were the same number, but many were smaller. There were several themed exhibits, and we enjoyed the one on less common holidays the most. The vendors were limited - far fewer than we've seen in the past. Many were vendors we hadn't seen before, but they didn't seem to have things we had to have. I did take advantage of show specials to pick up a few more spools of Superior thread, which is my thread of choice for my HQ Avante.
All in all, I only added one pattern, one tea towel kit, and three spools of thread to my collection, so it wasn't a terribly expensive day.
Here's the result of the last week on the stash report:
Fabric added this week: 0 yards
Fabric used this week: 1/2 yard
Fabric added year to date: 13 7/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 22 7/8 yards
Net fabric used: 9 yards
I hope you had as beautiful of a day in your neck of the woods as we did here - beautiful blue skies, pleasant temperatures, and dinner outside with friends and family made it the perfect Sunday of a long weekend!
