Sunday Stash - Cotton and Steel

I've been in bed praying to feel better since Wednesday so no sewing to report. But, I did have fabric come in this week. Boy did I ever have fabric come in this week!  Ta-da.....my Cotton and Steel fabric!!

Over the last 5 months or so, I've participated in a fat-eighth swap hosted by Erin at Sew at Home Mummy.  I asked her to hold onto all the fabric until the last swap so I'd only have to pay the one shipping charge.  And they finally came in this week!!  Above is the basics collection.  Next is August...

Then we have Moonlit...

Then Mustang...

And last is Hatbox...

I love them!  I've been trying for months to figure out exactly what to make from them.  I have other projects going, but really can't wait to start playing.

That being said, this put me firmly in the hole as far as my fabric count goes for this year so far.  If I counted correctly, this is 12-7/8 yards of fabric!!  I need to get better so I can start actually using fabric!

In This Week - 12-7/8 yards
Used This Week - 0 yards
Total In This Year - 16-3/8 yards
Total Out This Year - 0 yards
Net Used This Year - -16-3/8 yards

Linking up with Molli Sparkles and Patchwork Times.
