Stash Report, Week 18

OK, 17 went by without a post.... but here's a little update...

Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 18.625 yards

Fabric Used this Week: 1 1/2yards
Fabric Used Year to Date: 48 yards

Fabric Given away this week: 35 yards

I traded 2 boxes of fabrics and unwanted books on QATW for books of stamps and I gave 2 friends I was in scavenger hunt swaps with a bunch of extra fabric just because. It's fabric I'm sure they will like and it's out of my house!

The bad thing is that I also got a flat rate box full of pink & red strips, most are 2 1/2 inches, although some are 1 1/2 inch and some are as wide as 4 inches. I have 3 projects these are getting divided into. The same lady is sending me another box of pink & red FQ's and scraps and also a box of novelty scraps as my "I Spy" supply was greatly depleted last year.

I'll have to post some pictures when I get all these goodies.

She Lives!

Yes, I'm still alive. Been crazy busy with the teaching job at work and actually doing a little bit of sewing.

My Co-worker was finally brought out of the drug induced Coma on Sunday after 2 1/2 weeks. My boss went to see her yesterday and she is looking much better. She was trying to talk but since they did a tracheotomy on her last week that was very difficult. They still have her on a breathing machine and hope to get her off that soon too. She is truly a miracle and living proof that prayers are answered. We weren't sure she'd make it. She will still have a very long road to recovery but the worst is over.

I've been doing a little sewing but it's just finishing up some swap blocks I owed. These will be done by the end of the week and then NO MORE SWAPS for me till I get a whole lot of tops done. Don't let me sign up Eileen!
