Yardage progress

FYI: I'm rounding to the nearest 1/8th of a yard to keep the math simplified. i only count yards used per week from finished projects. Scraps don't count, because...well, they're scraps.
Used this week: 12.625yds
Yards acquired: 15. Lush Uptown and Briar Rose. I concede that I may have a problem.

  1. Oh, I'm so impressed with everything! From the dyeing to the star to the tote! Love all the blues!

  2. You're so busy! The dyeing looks amazing

  3. Lots of fun projects! I love the diamond pillow!

  4. I love the striking color combo of the Canary & Coal Mine - really cool looking!

  5. I love your diamond pillow, are the templates printable or do you have to buy them? Gorgeous fabric additions too! :o)

  6. I succumbed to some Lush and Briar Rose stashing last week too! I said I wouldn't but apparently I couldn't resist. Someone put a block on all the fabric websites! LOL!

  7. Ugh, that handspun! You kill me. I absolutely love it. You've been busy! I love the handquilted pillow, too.
