Can we have a woohoo, hurray??? I’ve taken the whole project down from my upstairs design wall, and brought it downstairs so I can lay out the parts that need to be sewn together. I have better access to them down here, and I can now take them directly off the wall and make sure they get sewn in where they should. I am thinking at this point that I’ll keep the top and bottom halves of the project separate as I sew in the white edging pieces, just to keep the bulk and weight more manageable. I must confess that I am getting to the point on this project that I am ready to have it done and move onto something else. But I am determined to get it done, so I will persevere.
One thing I am having no problem doing at all this year is adding to my stash. It’s so much fun to get fabrics in the mail, regardless of what it does to my stash numbers. The new and fresh stuff is great to have come in.
Fabric used last 2 weeks: 1.2 yards
Fabric used this year: 67 yards
Fabric added last 2 weeks: 11.2 yards
Fabric added this year: 110.7 yards
Net stash added: 43.7 yards
Somehow, I think getting into net stash busted numbers this year is just a pipe dream, at this point. But, since I only do this for fun and curiosity, rather than as a keep track to make sure I use more than I buy thing, it doesn’t really matter.
I’m Linking up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and Angie’s WIPs Be Gone. Then I’ll have to make a decision...... do I start sewing it all together, or do I do the last two rosettes?
