Oh, this math is getting complicated! I just rounded so I wouldn't have to get in the "12ths" of a yard. Not much fabric used--I counted a guesstimate for the applique used in my Santa blocks as I was using fabric scraps from my applique stash. I spent a lot of time sewing--well, not counting Monday when I read instead of sewing! My Santa quilt is progressing (good thing--need to start preparing our tax returns!); it is assembled in 4 segments and I have 2 put together. I will count the sashing next week; I had hoped to have all 4 segments put together, so I could count it this week but the book was just too enticing! I have one more machine embroidery block (there were 6 total amongst the applique blocks) to do today and then I can put the final 2 segments together :-) and start thinking about borders. There is a lot of blanket stitch when you have 34 blocks. My husband asked how many "pieces" are in each block, so I counted the one I was working on at that time--24 (some have more, some have less)--but that's not counting all the starts and stops for overlaps, etc. I'm ready for this quilt to be done!!
What a weird winter/spring it has been! We have had so much melting this year--makes me afraid for summer forest fires. Our roof had only about 6 inches of snow remaining, and some of it is completely free of snow. The forest floor is showing, and the catkins are on the native pussywillows. We've seen more birds returning--and it's still March on the mountain!! I'm beginning to get spring fever with the nice weather.
On another note, I may have to learn to use the camera so I can add more pictures--but maybe not! Gives my husband a reason to get out of his shop and visit the sewing/quilting room!!
