Stash Report Nov. 19

Not a lot of sewing going on this week. As I've said to a couple of people already today, working gets in the way of so many fun things. I did get some cutting and a little bit of sewing done on Make Your Point and am hoping to get a bit more done before going in to work this afternoon. Most of my time this past week was spent on quilting Sweet Treats I am having a blast, now that I've figured out how to do them, with doing the background fills with feathers. I'm hoping to have it finished this coming week. And I am having a really hard time resisting the pull of the newest mystery floating around blog land. I have a bunch of leftover blacks and neutral bits of fat quarters sitting on my cutting table, crying out "use us, please use us, please cut us into 1 1/2 inch strips and use us" So far, I'm ignoring them. LOL!!! Now, for the numbers:

Used this week:                   4.3 yards
Used this year:                   139 yards
Purchased this week:              0 yards
Purchased this year:            162.5 yards
Balance:                                 23.5 yards

There are other stash reports over at Judy Laquidara's Patchwork Times
Hmmmmmmmm, if I did the mystery, that would use up more yardage............. must resist........ must resist...............must resist............. must resist................... HELP!!!!!!!!


  1. Hahaha!! What's one more mystery, right?!?! Cathy, your blog is so much fun to read -- you have such a fun sense of humor! :)

  2. I"m resisting that mystery too...but I am printing it up just in case...

  3. Can't you hear their suffering little voices? "Use us!"
    Come on... it'll use more stash! hehehehe

  4. Really? You haven't cut into them yet? You haven't started making cute little quarter square triangles? Really?? You are making me play all by myself? Can you feel the love?

    Good have some darn good restraint going on if you haven't started the mystery yet. :o)

    Have fun quilting your fabulous quilts!

  5. So far, Bonnie's mysteries have turned out great - it really would be a shame to resist!


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.
