Stash Report week 15, 2013
I had usage this past week, the most I've had in a very long time. WOOHOO!! I finished off the cutting for the Playful Friends blocks, and sewed up all but the last 2 of the blocks. And I made up a backing for a Disappearing 9 patch that I made years ago. It's loaded and on the Millie, just waiting for a few hours of quilting time. I wanted to load one of mine, just to make sure everything is working properly after taking her apart and then putting her back together again.
It will be a good one for donating to the children's aid for an older child. I haven't quite decided on the quilting design yet. Part of me is thinking something free hand, and part of me is thinking a pantograph of some sort.
I've found my boxes of unquilted tops, so I decided to start unpacking them while I was up there earlier.
There are about 8 of them hanging there, with another 4 or 5 still waiting to be unpacked. I think I need to start adding mine into the quilting calendar line up. I have some new threads on order that I want to try, so that will be a good opportunity to try them out, and get some of mine done at the same time. It will also help towards my stash numbers by doing backs for them. LOL!! I've added a bit to the stash numbers this week. I've found a pattern that I want to do that is a Judy Martin design called Meteor Shower. But I needed to get more oranges for it, so I picked up 4 yards of various bright and pale oranges.
Used this week: 6.95 yards
Used this year: 39.7 yards
Added this week: 4 yards
Added this year: 131.25 yards
Balance: 91.55 more yards in than out.
I'm working this afternoon, so I'd best get linked up to Judy's Patchwork Times and then get ready to go. I keep forgetting to allow for the extra travel time to get to work, which could end up being not a very good thing, if I end up late to work.
