Stash report Week 17

I haven't done a stash report in 4 or 5 weeks now. Too busy getting ready for the baby shower, finishing up the little guy's quilts and diapers. The rest of the snaps for the diapers came on Thursday in the mail, so I can get back to work on those and get them finished as well. His arrival date was supposed to be around May 22nd, but I suspect that he's going to be here a lot earlier than that. At his 32 week ultrasound, he was already clocking in at approximately 6 pounds. So, I sure hope for Laurie's sake, that the doctor's arrange for him to arrive in the next week or 2, or that will be one really big baby with a really big ouch factor to him. LOL! She has a special set of ultrasounds booked for tomorrow, so we should know more then.

We came up to Collingwood this weekend to give a little bit of assistance to getting ready. Scott helped Noel paint the room that will be his nursery, and Laurie and I went through all the clothes and towels and blankets that are here. We finished sorting them according to size, and got all the new stuff she received at the shower washed and folded and into their proper storage boxes. It's a good thing she doesn't have a lot of newborn sized clothes, since I don't think he'd fit them for too long. Anyway, this is supposed to be a stash report post, so, to the numbers.

Used since week 12:            7.1 yards
Used year to date:              56.2 yards
Added since week 12:         4 yards
Added year to date:           95.5 yards
Balance                             +39.3 yards

  1. Newborn clothing is darn cute but isn't used very much. It is the type that if you have quite a few that you change the baby 3 times a day head to foot. LOL Good luck with the grandbaby!

  2. Hey, between the diaper overflows and the "moist" burps, they often need 4 and 5 outfits a day. Of course, with your special diapers there won't be any overflows. ;) The countdown has really started!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
