Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Sunday Stash and Stitching report.

Now that La Passacaglia is finished, it’s time to start working on a new hand project. Last November Karen, who blogs at Faeries and Fibres, did a trunk show and workshop at our guild. She has a unique set of designs for doing hexagons, which I’ve been itching to get at. But I kept putting it off until the beast of La Passacaglia was finished. The centre star section of this piece was started when I decided I would take part in a mystery hosted by Tonya at Hillbilly Quilt Shop. I never managed to get any further than the centre, so I thought I could use it for this workshop piece. This is the basic layout I’ll be doing. There will probably be some sort of a border and them more hexagons around the outside. I’ll probably appliqué them down to a background.

I had some fabric come in this week, but my used numbers are keeping up.

Used last 2 weeks:                                 5.5 yards
Used this year:                                      25.65 yards
Added last 2 weeks:                                9 yards
Added this year:                                    20.45 yards
Net stash busted:                                     5.2 yards

I’m linking up to Judy’s Stash Report and Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.

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.
