Stash and Sunday Stitching Report, Dec. 16, 2012

The stash report is easy...... nothing in or out this week. Too many hours spent working at the hospital, and the rest of it was spent trying to make order out of chaos in my sewing room. It is slowly starting to happen. I'm going to spend some more time working at it today, and hopefully get the remaining 3 yards and under pieces all bolted up. Then there are the longer yardages to do, and lastly, sorting through all the smaller pieces, and get them cut into either strips or squares.

The hand stitching has been going well this week. The last of the stockings is finished, this one is Noel's, and ready to stuff, with 9 days to spare. Whew!! Now all we have to do is figure out what to put in them. and then go out and do the shopping for it. That's on the agenda for tomorrow.

Then I spent last evening stitching on a project that I had originally bought as a Christmas gift for my Mum, years ago. Her eye sight and her health failed, and she was never able to start it. But it somehow seems appropriate, now the we have grandchildren, to work on it, and get it finished. I can't find the picture of it, at the moment, but eventually it ends up as a sampler of different stitches, with the grandchildrens' names in the corners of the outer edges. This is going to be a very long term project. In fact, the grandchildren might be adults by the time it is finished. LOL!!
