Stash and Sunday Stitching report

It is 11 pm. and we just got home from thanksgiving with all the family about 45 minutes ago. I was going to write this report while we were over there, but when I went looking for my stitching to take pictures of it, I realized that I had left it at home. DUH!! This is actually a 2 week report, because I missed last week. In the stitching department, I've finished up the second of the Promises and Borders
blocks, and I'm almost finished with the fifth of the blocks in the Grandmother's choice block of the week.

We had a lovely dinner tonight, filled with lots of love and laughter, but not a whole lot of talking. We were all much too busy laughing at Avery's antics. He is hilarious. He loves sweet potato casserole that his daddy makes. He did get some of it into his tummy.
And even more than sweet potato casserole, he loves yogurt.
He's very serious about his culinary skills. He's just about ready to graduate to 5 star restaurants. LOL!! After all that yummy food, he had to have a bath.
That's better........ all clean again. He is absolutely the ultimate in cuteness. And he looks so much like his daddy did at the same age. He makes my heart melt into a big pool of mush...........

Oh, wait a minute, this is supposed to be a stash report. I got sidetracked by grandson cuteness.

Used this week:                           2.6 yards
Used this year:                          94.1 yards
Purchased this week:                      5 yards Kona Charcoal for Great Granny Squares
Purchased this year:                   157.8 yards
Balance:                                      63.7 more yards in than out.

I'm linking up, better late than not at all, to Judy's Stash report and Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching , even though I didn't actually get any stitching done today. I mean, really, with all that Avery cuteness happening, who can find time to stitch.


  1. Absolutely! He is adorable...don't know how you could take your eyes off the little cutie!
    Love your sunflower block...that was a tough one!

  2. With a grandson that adorable, you can gush about him all day long, as far as I'm concerned!
    I still haven't started on my Promises and Borders blocks - don't even have any of them on fabric yet... Love the way your's are turning out!

  3. He is adorable, isn't he? ;)
    Thanks for giving him the bath. I enjoyed the little breaks I got this weekend.

  4. Oh my goodness, he's such a darling, darling, darling!! I'm really liking the look of your P&B blocks with the faux applique. I think I may 'copy' you on that!! :)


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.
