Over the past year I have noticed bloggers doing Stash Reports each week. While I had thought that was a great idea, I was not sure if I could do it myself. But in the spirit of the New Year and being good, cause dieting is not something I make as a resolution at all.
The Bloggers seem to start each year fresh and this is great, they do not count what is in the cupboard already, cause that is just a scary thought to try and count what is already here.
Well I have decided to start being accountable for my purchases and try and use what I have (but still buy more fabric, as if I could stop myself). I do buy alot of Moda Precuts and these are what I would like to use, but as I also work in at The Patchwork Angel fabric seems to follow me home. Because I am a Longarm quilter and buy Backing fabrics these will not be counted in or out if I use them on my own quilts.
So to start I have bought some French General precuts and a bolt of fabric. I have also bought several striped fabrics for a project I am working on with Sue Ross at Precious Times in Toowoomba. I also got some meterage of French General for borders and some Owl farbic that I missed out on last time we got it in at the shop.

Hoping to get some fabric busted soon. Does it count if my daughter uses it also????
Later this afternoon Flick has decided to make a quilt for her new cousin Kitson.
This may be a long term project for her (and me)
