Stash Report - Week 3

sunday stash red

Last weekend I went up to Boston to help my sister clean and organize her apartment before the baby arrives. It was fun for about a day, then just a lot of hard work. It was definitely not a relaxing weekend!

She decided that sewing will no longer be part of her life (she knits more than she sews anyways), so she gave me ALL of her fabric. I went through it and only kept what I thought I could use or trade (which was most of it). I filled a suitcase to 50 pounds! Yup, there's a lot to go through. Projects of hers that I might finish, etc. So after last week's diet FAIL I succeeded in not buying anything this week. :)
