STASH REPORT - Weeks 9-10, 2012

And here's how my week (whoops, 2 weeks!) went:
Used this Week: 6 2/3 yards 
Used year to Date: 56 5/6 yards 
Added this Week: 5 yards 
Added Year to Date: 9 yards 
Net Stash Decrease for 2012:  47 5/6 yards

Not an outstanding week, but I made progress.  I bought 5.5 yards to use in my March UFO (I'm nearly ready for borders) and .5 yard of a black fabric for a quilt on my bucket list for "someday."  I need a lot more blacks before I can get started on it.  So, the yardage used this week was for the Shadowbox March UFO.  I opted to make the larger of the two sizes--wow, 84 x 104 is really, really large!  I've got the vertical rows draped over my longarm and they trail across the floor; I will finish the sashing and inner borders today.  Some of the fabric used was leftover from a fall, 1996 project--I love that fabric!  I wonder how I ever managed to cut into it--I wonder why I didn't just leave it in the cupboard and take it out frequently to pet!!  Now it will be in a quilt that I can "pet" as I pass by!

I finished the large envelope for the back of my paperdoll quilt (Feb. UFO); I will button it to the back of the quilt after it comes off the longarm.  I backed the 2 dolls with felt and the clothing with fabric from the quilt top--voila, the dolls and clothing went into the envelope where they will wait for little hands to pull them out! 

We had snow yesterday, so the branches of our towering pines are adorned with mini-puffs of snow--it is really beautiful.  My (I've claimed ownership!) goats were grazing only about 6 feet above the highway yesterday evening--they are so beautiful! 


  1. Cutting loved stash is hard but then you can wrap up in it instead of just pet it.

  2. WOW, you've been busy. Can't wait to see the finished projects.

  3. Great ideas for the envelope on the back of the paper dolls quilt.
    Smart that you did cut into that fabric you loved, onow it can loe you back. Jane
