STASH REPORT - Week 49, 2012

Used this Week: 11 3/4 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards

Used year to Date: 203 3/4 yards
Added Year to Date: 103 3/4 yards 

Net Stash Decrease for 2012: 100 yards


Well, finally!!  :-)  I made 7 pillowcases this past week--5 will be used as Christmas gifts and 2 will be future gifts.  And I have 1 QOV quilted--so the backing was added to yardage used.  It will be mailed as soon as I receive an address.  I have the 2nd QOV ready to put on the longarm.  I'm seriously low on fabric I can use for QOVs, including fabric to back these quilts.  Seems that most of my backing fabric yardage is floral--and I hate to use that on patriotic quilts.  So, I need to bask in reaching my goal of 100 yards net usage before I mess up my stats by buying more patriotic yardage!!


I used the "sausage" method on the pillowcases--really like having all seams enclosed (and not getting out my serger!).  The instructions I was using was 24-12-2 dimensions, but I changed the 2 to 1.5 for the accent and like the smaller accent better.  


We have had some snow--but not nearly enough!  Roads were icy when we went to church yesterday, and temperatures have dropped drastically.  Last week we were in the high 30's--this morning it was 2 degrees when I got up at about 6:30.  The wood fire burning in the fireplace feels sooooooo good!
