Let's Face It!
2009 Fabric IN 65.75 yards
2009 Fabric USED 50.70 yards
2009 $ spent for sewing supplies $999.26
That figure includes ALL sewing related expenses.
Well, my fabric is increasing at a slower rate, than in previous years. Sounds like Government Budget talk, doesn't it?
Batting and backings are the big culprit.
Regarding the little quilt I'm working on, I have made 18 appliqued leaves, using the fusible interfacing method, but I poked through 4 of them - it's very thin interfacing even though I've tried to NOT poke that portion. But they are all various sizes, shapes -- NOT what I wanted. And yes, I faced 2 pineapples with the wrong side up - dang it - I am NOT paying attention! I may end up using Steam-a-Seam lite 2 instead. I'm hoping to get it to photo-stage in the next post.
Our summer heat has dissipated somewhat - Where is that Kick-in-the-Pants when a person needs it? I am LAZY!!!
