Stash Report: Week 4 and another Sip and Sew

I was originally going to bring my Charlotte's Baskets quilt to the LQS for their Friday Sip and Sew.  I couldn't wait and finished it a week early, so I had to figure out what else to bring.  I ended up going with my Orca bay kit.  I am going with purples, gray, black, and white.

A recent change took Sip and Sew from Wednesday to Friday.  If I wear my PJ's, I get a discount on any fabric purchased!  I kept purchases to a minimum so as to not disrupt my Stash numbers, but purchased Christmas fabric for next year's Christmas ornaments as well as a gray FQ to add to the Orca Bay fabrics.

In the picture below, you see I purchased an Omnigrid cutting/ironing travel mat.  The cutting mat does not appear to be self-healing so I really dont plan on using it.  I used it all night ironing my string blocks and didnt even have to get back up out of my chair to press at the ironing board!  I love it!  I purchased it on sale at Joann Fabrics for around 13.00.

I skipped around, but ended up finishing about 20 purple strings and 10 gray string blocks before I called it quits!

Now for the weekly stash report:
