Sunday Stash Week 29, 2012 and Stitchery report
I'm joining in with a fairly new linky party hosted by Kathy. This is the 4th week, and it shows what different hand projects we are working on. So I thought this would be a good opportunity to show the progress week by week on the Christmas stockings I'm doing for our adult children. While we were away in Algonquin a week ago, I finished up Rebecca's manger scene stocking.
And then there was still time to get a start on Noel's Santa's Workshop stocking. This one is going to be really challenging. It has a lot of 3 dimensional toys on it, which should be a lot of fun to do. I love the way the window looks. Having the linky party each week will give me incentive to work on them, beyond the fact that I want to get all 4 of them done by Christmas. However, when I get to Laurie's, I won't be able to show pictures of it, because she reads my blog, and I don't want to ruin the surprise of it.
I have some good stash numbers this week. I finished up a quilt top on my Friday afternoon and night sew-in, so I can count those numbers now. I usually count as I cut, but I forgot to write the numbers down as I was cutting this time, so it is a finished quilt to report this week. I'll put up pictures of it tomorrow.
Used this week: 6.3 yards
Used this year: 57.7 yards
Purchased this week: 0 yards
Purchased this year: 109.25 yards
Balance: 51.55 more yards in than out.
I'm happy that the used numbers are starting to go up. It gives a good feeling of getting something accomplished. I'm linking up to Judy's Stash report at Patchwork Times.
On a sadder note, Scott's brother is back in hospital with a pretty severe case of pneumonia, and he doesn't have a lot of strength left with which to fight it. So, we are waiting to see what happens there, knowing that it is all in God's hands.
