I've switched up what I'm stitching. I've had enough of My Tweets for the moment. I think I'll put it away until the summer, when it can become my enjoy the outdoors project. So I pulled out an ancient UFO that's been on my mind ever since I found it while getting organized for moving last year. And I've come across it a few times since moving here, and each time I've thought that I should get it out and maybe try to finish it.The final incentive to haul this out was Kathy saying that the quilt she is working on is seven years old. She asked if we could beat that.
I'm sitting in my comfy recliner chair, quilting and enjoying the view out the window beside me. That weird shape in the picture is the screen. It's frozen in place, so I couldn't move it out of the way to take the picture. Our guild is having its quilt show in October. I think it would be kinda neat if I could have this done by then and enter it. So, I'll set that as a loose sort of goal. I'll try and get the rest of the components of this quilt sorted out, and get it up on the design wall by tomorrow.
As far as stash report goes, there is more out from the pinwheel blocks, and from the whites cut for my February UFO project.
Used this week: 1.8 yards
Used this year: 16.1 yards
Added this week: 0 yards
Added this year: 0 yards
Balance: 16.1 more yards out than in.
Those 0 yards numbers will be changing this week. Gail went on a road trip this weekend, and made a stop at Mad About Patchwork, which is actually an online store, but Pam will occasionally let people "shop her basement" as she calls it. So Gail had a shopping list from a few of us. I had a Kona cotton solid that I wanted, and then told Gail to pick out some stuff for me that is outside my usual box. It will be fun to see what she comes home with.
I'm linking up to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching and Judy's Stash Report. After I finish here, I'm going to go mix up some bread. While it is rising and baking, I'll go back to more hand quilting.
