Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Stash Report, Week 8, 2014

These wonderful fabrics were added to my stash this week, the first addition this year. There are 8 yards of Kona Maize, and then 13 really fun fat quarters. I had hand to hand delivery service for these. Gail went to Ottawa this past week, and stopped in at Mad About Patchwork, with instructions from me to pick up, in addition to the pale yellow that I ordered, some fabrics that were "outside my box". She did good. They are outside my usual choices, but I love them. They will be fun to make up into something, as yet undecided.
I've had a very productive sewing week. My 2 1/2 inch leaders/enders project, which was February's UFO, is now finished, and I got a backing made for Thanksgiving Leaves, which had been loaded onto the quilting machine. So, in spite of the additions this week, I remain in positive stash used numbers.
We had a really fun sew-in day for the guild yesterday, which is when I put the last seams into this month's UFO. Each time I go to one of these I enjoy myself more. I'm getting to know more of the ladies, and feeling much more comfortable in the groups. I am a solitary quilter no longer, and it feels wonderful.

Used this Week:                               7.4 yards
Used this year:                               23.5 yards
Added this week:                            12.25 yards
Added this year:                               12.25 yards

I'm linking up to Judy's Stash Report.

  1. Your new prints are so pretty! They make me think of springtime, which we could all use a bit of about now!


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.
