What Stash did YOU bust today????

Well I spent ALOT of my day gathering paperwork needed to get my son's passport.
Then I cut up probably 3 or 4 yards of 10 1/2" squares for backings. But the big buster of the day was another 3 yards of 2" strips for the rag rug frame *VBG*
I have 2 more yards to cut for squares tomorrow morning and then I need to warp the frame with the strips and see if I can get this baby going. According to the directions each rug will take up to 10-15 yards of fabric. Now how cool is that???
And any questionable fabric can be saved for the next rug's warp fabric as the braiding covers it- WOW!!! I think we all need this frame .

Amanda Jean added the third block to our quilt along. I'll make my 2 tomorrow morning.


LOOK!!!
I wrapped the warp fabric and started weaving *VBG*! I also have a nice sized stack of squares to start using for backings and more 1/2 yard pieces of what was I thinking fabrics. Like this Peanuts fabric- not enough for a backing- design too much to fussy cut and get much out of it....so 2" strips it is and it's almost gone and I had 4 yards of it - yippee!!!
