I had a lovely birthday celebration at our patchwork group meeting on Wednesday. Its my birthday this month so after our monthly meeting I was presented with my birthday gift from the birthday club we run. My gift was 3 Scrap Bags from Keepsake Quilting. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised. I thought when I heard our president, who organises the Birthday Club talking about it, that it was a bag of random fabrics in a bag - just assorted left over fabrics. Not at all. The Scrap Bags are 12 regular 1/4 yard cuts (skinny quarters is what I have known them as) ie 9" x 44". The fabrics are not random but in specific families
The Scrap Bags I received were "Singing the Blues", "Jewel Box" and "Popsicle Stick" - an absolutely gorgeous range of fabrics. The celebrations continued with a special morning tea and later a shared lunch. It was a lovely morning.

It did mean 9 yards of fabric to add to my stash which is 8.23metres
I haven't had any finishes this week. I do however have a quilt in the process of being quilted (Disappearing Pinwheel) and 2 quilts the blue and the brown "Shirt Off My Back" quilts pinned ready to be quilted so if I put my head down and get busy this week I could have a few finishes by next week. I live in hope.
So the stash report goes as follows
Used this week 0m
Gained this week 8.23m
Used YTD 30.86m
Gained YTD 20.84m
Net used 10.02
So I'm still in positive territory and hoping for some big finishes before I get to the end of the month
