Sunday Stash and Stitching Report, week 5

I must confess to being totally obsessed by this project, La Passacaglia. It has completely taken over almost all of the time that I spend with hand projects. It's even eclipsed the late night knitting I usually do and the evenings spent with my sewing machine.  I looked at the clock last night, and I was still working on this at 11:30. My eyes have usually given out for hand work by that time. Each time I add a round on this, I'm thinking ahead to the next one, wondering what fabric will work the best. I am having so much fun with this. The medium grey at the top is going to be the star points for the last round that goes on next. I'm not exactly sure yet, what will go in the centre of the stars or in between them. More stash digging will be involved, I'm sure. There might be a peach or light orange in there, to act as the compliment to the blues. Hmmm.... yes, I like that idea, I'll have to give it a try.
As for the stash report..... there's been a little that I can count as used..... some binding and a few rows of Texas Chain sewn together.

Used this week:                        1.8 yards
Used this year:                          14.05 yards
Added this week:                      0 yards
Added this year:                        15 yards
Net stashed:                                 .95 yards

Next week should see me back into stash busted numbers. I'm linking up to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching and Judy's Stash report. Then, I'm going to go back to work on this hand stitching project.

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.
