I haven't been doing any hand stitching this week, so nothing to report there. And if it weren't for yesterday's workshop from the guild, there wouldn't have been any stash use either. We had a wonderful time, and very educational, learning how to make and insert curved flying geese, taught by Susan Clark, from the Burlington area. I've had a stack of 25 New York Beauty blocks hang in around for a few years now, the result of a couple of challenges I did a few years ago. As soon as I saw this workshop, I knew I wanted to incorporate the NYBs into it. This is what I got accomplished in the workshop. The long term plan is to continue with the curved flying geese, and incorporate all the NYBs into a full sized quilt, having the geese going around and under them. There will be lots more geese going into the grey background areas of this section, and then I'll move onto another being section. Note, I said long term project I'm not sure of the fabric used amount for this, since there is a lot of waste, but I'm going to guesstimate about .5 yards.
Used this week: .5 yards
Used this year: 104.5 yards
Added this week: 0 yards
Added this year: 118 yards
Net added: 11.5 yards
That net added number is going up, again. Thousands of Bolts had a fat quarter sale on last week. I indulged, just a little bit. I suspect, once those fabrics get here, that my hope of ending up in net stash used numbers this year is pretty bleak. But, I really can't say that bothers me. They will find a home in a project somewhere.
