Stash Report 3/11/2012 and a house update

I have completed inventorying everything that was left at the house by the recovery company. I have typed up the list and am in the process of dating and valuing everything. What does this have to do with my stash report?

I weighed all my fabric to get it's approximate yardage and value. 533 pounds. Multiply that by 4 to get yardage. This is a figure regularly discussed on stashbuster. That means I have about 2,132 yards of fabric.

This knowledge prevented me from buying fabric at the Dallas quilt show yesteday. In fact I didn't even buy a pattern or a ruler. My big splurge was a pair of scissors and a light that straps to your finger. Could be useful when threading a needle.

I did buy 1.5 yards of fabric for the quilt I am working on fixing. My plan is to trade for what I need in the future or sell and buy what I need. I know that I do not need to bring in one more inch of fabric!

Nothing out yet this year but just wait til I get back in my sewing room!

Here is the house update. My builder just ordered the cabinets last week. He had originally told me it would take 6-8 weeks to get them from the time they were ordered. He shocked me when he told me they should be here in about 3 weeks time. What great news! I have picked out the windows, paint and flooring. Just need to come up with the money to get some of these items to keep the job moving forward. Feel free to ask your questions.

That is a staggering amount of fabric!!! But I know that you can get it used. :)

Have you finished washing all of the fabric since the fire?

That is a lot of fabric to be washing and pressing and folding!

That makes me wonder how much I have - but I'm not going to figure it out yet!

It was SO nice to meet you at the Dallas show! I held myself in check also, just one hexie template. I have a hard time wrapping my head around 533 pounds of fabric -- but I wouldn't want to weigh my own stash. :) If you need help washing some of it, just let me know.
