Stash Report and Sunday Stitchery

Well, I can't say that there has been a whole lot of sewing going on in my world this past week, so not a whole lot to report for stash usage. And there hasn't been a whole lot of hand stitching this week, either. A large hunk of time last week went to planning for our move into our new apartment that needs some work. And before those meetings was a large hunk of time just getting ideas of what we would like to do with the space. It is fun planning it, but it sure does take an awful lot of time. But I'm sure it will be more than worth it in the end.
However, I did get the first stitchery block for the Promises and Borders BOM finished, although that isn't saying that much since there wasn't a whole lot left to do on it. I added in the yellow centers in the orange flowers, painted on the textile fixative to make the coloured pencil permanent, and pressed it. After I finish here, I'm going to get the next square ready to do.

As for the stash report, here goes:

Used this week:                                            .7 yards
Used this year:                                          84.4 yards
Added this week:                                           0 yards
Added this year:                                      147.3 yards
Balance:                                                     62.9 yards more in than out.

I'm linking up to Judy's Stash report and Kathy's Slow Sunday stitching, although there is nothing slow about this Sunday for me, considering I have to work this afternoon. But tracing out the next block in the Promises and Borders series will slow me down, and focus my mind on where it should be, on my Father in heaven, and His promises.


  1. Cathy, I really like the coloring on your Promises and Borders stitchery -- you did a great job!! These will go very fast this way, won't they?! Don't work too hard!! :)

  2. Such a beautiful block...great job with the shading.
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!

  3. I have all the Promises and Borders BOM printed, but I haven't started on any of them yet. I love the way you've done this block! I'm probably just going to do the embroidery - it never occured to me to do anything else!

  4. Great job on your block Cathy! I really love the coloring effect :*)


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.
