Weekly Stash Report

Grandma surprised me with a bag of thrift store fabric scraps this week, one that she'd already sorted and folded. I like finding the bags for myself now and then and getting the first look, but the stuff she's folded looks so much better and usable than the mess I make pawing through it!

No fabric or yarn to report as used this week, but I've been busy with other things.

Have you been following the Wantobe Quilter Campaign over at Stash Manicure? Even if you're not entering to win, the posts are worth reading. This week, there was a tutorial on using Quilter's Grid to make perfect postage stamp blocks and one on how to sew your own custom storage bags out of clear plastic. And then there are the giveaways for wantobe quilters (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) and experienced quilters (Tuesday and Thursday), which will be happening until the end of October. The information on how to enter is here, but even if you don't win a thing, you'll learn so much from the tutorials you probably won't care -- at least that's how I feel about it!
