This week sees me a little further in the red. The only thing I've completed recently was a wrist pincushion, but it used a minuscule amount of fabric, so I'm not going to count it. And since I couldn't find much time to sew, I figured the next best thing was to buy more fabric. What could possibly make more sense than that? I saw that Hancock's of Paducah had their Buttercup and La Petite Ecole charm packs on sale so I bought 5 of the former and 1 of the latter.

I'm going to Whistle Stop Quilt Shop on Monday where I expect I'll make additional fabric purchases. She carries the Buttercup line so I might pick up some yardage for borders. And then if she still has this fat quarter bundle, I might have to take it home with me. I'm thinking it could make a beautiful Eventide quilt.

My stash report is feeling like a bit of a joke right now. I don't know when it will start to look any better either. I'm guessing I'm going to continue to dig myself deeper for a while. However, I would like to make some more pillowcases for the Million Pillowcase Challenge, so perhaps that will give me a little boost. That reminds me I need to wash the fabric for those so I'd better go do it now before I forget yet again!
And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.
