I kind of forgot that I was supposed to get into this Sunday routine again of posting my stash update and my completed projects like I did in 2015. I am back to not buying any more fabric….except I must confess I did yesterday. 🙁 I was weak. I went out of town and stopped at a quilt shop.
So I guess I am going to apply the same rules I did in 2015. I am going to give myself a 500$ budget to spend if I am on vacation or out of town. I say that because I am going to go to the UK this spring and if I happen to stop at a textile shop or something–> I think I will want to buy some things to remind me of my trip. I am also going to Minnesota in the summer and Portland, Oregon in August for my Birthday. So there we go.
I think for the most part this a good compromise because my real problem with fabric shopping is online shopping. I have turned into an online shopper for the most part. For almost everything. If I lived in the city I would probably buy my groceries online. Crazy! I know. But I live in a rural area and we have to drive an hour to get to a decent area to shop for anything. I hate road trips….and it feels like a road trip anytime we have to go shopping. I know that if you live in the city you get used to driving for long periods of time. When you live in a small town and it takes 5 minutes to get across town you become spoiled and the thought of being in the car more than 20 minutes has me thinking …”Oh I don’t want to go.” I never thought I would be this way. 🙂
I bought 136$ worth of fabric yesterday.
Quilts I have made so far this year:
- Neutral Love Wool Penny Project
- Wool Confetti Project for T
- Wool Penny Project ( big pink flower in the center)

- Kaffe hourglass quilt
Quilts that I have finished:
- Scrappy Square in a squares quilt. Quilted by me made by Annette
So I most of these I started last year..but finished them this year. But the wool Penny projects were actually started & finished this year. I find that amazing because they are all done by hand. It’s very relaxing for me…and I find them easy to work on.
Anyway This is the new routine. I just need to get back into the groove. 🙂 I doubt that I will be able to finish 100 projects this year…I did meet that in 2015. But things were different and this year is full of travel and changes.
