Stash Report Week 30, 2012 and Sunday stitching.

There has been progress in both areas..... stash and stitching. I like these Sunday stitching reports. They give another avenue of incentive to get some work done from week to week. We discovered a really, really good TV series this past week, called Downton Abbey. Scott had purchased the first season, and it was so good we watched it in a marathon last Sunday. We finished the last episode at about 8 pm, and Scott got up, and went right out to the store to pick up season 2, which we also ended up watching in another marathon over that same evening and then on Monday. It's amazing the amount of stitching that can be accomplished while watching a full year's worth of a TV series. LOL! There are about 150 pieces in this stocking, and I put #63 on last night, so it is almost halfway done. I think the rest of it is all the little toys.

For the stash report, I cut a lot for the July UFO, so there is yardage used.

Used this week:                                   4.4 yards
Used this year:                                  62.1 yards
Purchased this week:                             0 yards
Purchased this year:                     109.25 yards
Balance:                                               47.15 more yards in than out.
It is quite possible that my purchased numbers are going to go up this week. I've been invited to a "fabric party", kind of like a quilter's version of a tupperware party, but a whole lot more fun buying fabric rather than plastic. LOL!!
I'm linking up to Kathy's Sunday Stitching post.

  5. Aww, these are the type of stockings we use in my family! It was one of the first crafts I did for keeps as a teen. I have a new son in law and need to finish his before Christmas! Thanks for the reminder!

  6. A fabric party sounds like fun!


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.
