Stashbusting Report, Week 38

this week's numbers are the same as last week, but sometimes life just has a way of happening.

Fabric in: 0
Fabric out: 0
Fabric in YTD: 54 yards
Fabric out YTD: 107.57 yards
Net used: 53.57 yards

this week i pulled 5 yards out of stash for a quilt backing and ordered 2 more yards to add to it. I'll count all that probably in next few week's totals when i sew it up, and send the next quilt out for quilting.

this week i put the binding on my "Heritage" quilt and slept under it all week. It feels so nice! The weather here is FINALY breaking, and we are supposed to get periodic rain showers all weeek long---wonderful and much-needed rain! a great incentive to get back to quilting.

no quilting got done this week because life has a way of happening.
My long-awaited lap top computer got here this week. i unpacked it, tried it out for two days, faced the fact that i didn't like(read: was inept at using)the built-in mouse, and packed the whole thing back up and shipped it back to the company. maybe someone else can use it successfully, but that someone wasn't me.
Oddly enough,after waiting and anticipating for months to get the thing, it felt very good indeed to have it out of here---almost like things had gotten back to normal!

Hubby has given me a different mouse that he had from Logitech (to replace my mouse which is slowly dying)to try with my old computer, so i'll get that installed this afternoon.

I'm not a fan of the onboard mouse. So I bought a wireless one and use that. Sorry you didn't like your laptop! Get a new desktop!
