I am so happy that it worked out that I could spend some time on a mini quiltathon this weekend. I should have spent more time but I am still dealing with my whole "can't get out of my own way" thing.
I have a friend at work who is anxiously awaiting the birth of his first child towards the end of July. He is a really good friend so of course he had to have a quilt. I have been thinking about what to do. They already know they are having a boy, but I have no idea on colors so I just picked something I liked. The purple has firetrucks and trains. I hope it is boyish enough. All made from stash. I am trying to decide if I'm going to do a border or not. It's only about 34 x 42 inches, and I really wanted to put a purple matching the trains around it, but I don't have anything suitable in stash and I'm not going to buy anything new. I was trying to think differently when April suggested that it didn't need a border at all. What do you think? I could just bind it with the brown dot material.
My "no buy" is still going strong. I managed to save about $25 on groceries this week although that will probably change as DS is due home this week from his summer program. I didn't buy anything else this week except gas. So far I haven't noticed a difference since I pretty much exclusively shop with credit cards and it won't show until the next statement. I'm excited to see how low it is.
This week's stash report:
fabric in -- 0 again
fabric used -- 2 1/2 yards
I also got some work done on the quilt for my friend from work.
