Leo’s Mane Sew Along

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.


  1. The stockings are really cute - you are making really good progress on them.

    Sad to hear that your BIL is not doing too well. Hopefully, he has enough strength to recover.

  2. Adorable stockings...true heirlooms in the making!
    Thanks for linking up!
    Hope your BIL recovers from the pneumonia...my brother had it in March/April and is still not back on his feet...it's a long recovery.

  3. Cathy!!!I was so excited to see your stockings!!! What a nice surprise on my rainy day. Maybe I'll invade Kathy's Linkup. I've been working on some ornaments. I can get a stocking done in about a month but for some reason those little ornaments take several months.

  4. Your stockings are just adorable! I am enjoying Kathy's new linky party too :*)

  5. Pretty stockings! Love, love these!!! :)


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.
