Stash Busting 2009 - Week 9

Above is the sewing area that I have set up in the dining room. We finally had a break in the rain this week, so I was able to get a little sunny sewing time.

Of course today I stood up for just a moment, and my chair became instantly occupied. He always wants the best seat in the house!

Yesterday I took my "know how" class on how to use my new Bernina. It was a long day (6 hours), but I did learn quite a lot of the finer points of the Bernina. And as a bonus, Annie Smith was teaching in the classroom next to ours. Annie is a wonderful quilt teacher and designer from San Jose. She is also the creator of the Quilting Stash, first podcast for quilters. I listen to all of her shows and am a big fan. I popped in after the two classes had ended and introduced myself. It was reallly great to meet her in person -- I feel like I know her already through her podcasts!

I am on the verge of finishing three different projects, but none are completed yet, so I can't count out the stash. So frustrating!! Hopefully this week! When they are finally done, I will hopefully have more out than in for the year so far. Also, I am very proud of myself, because this week I went to THREE quilt shops for various reasons, and did not buy one bit of fabric! Yay me!!! I had my eye on some Simpsons fabric that I had never seen before, but I was strong and didn't buy it. However, I did end up with a store credit at Eddie's Quilting Bee, so it may come home with me yet.

Fabric in this week: 0 yards
Fabric out this week: 0 yards

Fabric in this year: 11.5 yards
Fabric out this year: 3.75 yard
