Back in the black!!! I had two finishes this week which brought my numbers back up into positive usage – yay!!!!
First, I finished up my Quilts in Progress wall quilt which was my NewFO for January. I just LOVE it!!!! It is so colorful and happy. I can’t help but smile every time I see it. Now I have to decide whether I am going to hang it over the doorway into my sewing room as originally planned or on the wall over my window. I’ll be sure to post a picture when it finally settles into its new home. I used about 3.25 yards fabric in this little gem.
Also finished this week is Anita’s quilt. The members of our Guild contributed floral snowball blocks for this lovely Floral Garden quilt to be given to the church secretary where we meet each month. Anita lost her husband last year and we wanted to give her a quilt to show our sympathy and appreciation for all she does for us.
I assembled the quilt and handed it off to others for quilting and binding. Many willing hands contributed to this quilt, and many others contributed fabrics. Special thanks go out to Ruth, Teresa C, Pat S, Joanne and Susie! I only used about .5 yard of fabrics from my own stash.
This brings my stash totals to:
Used this week: 3.75 yards
Used YTD 2012: 22.50 yards
Added this week: 0 yards
Added YTD 2012: 21.00 yards
Net Used for 2012: 1.50 yards
How is your stash coming along? Growing (fun!) or getting busted (more room for shopping!)? Go over to Patchwork Times to see how others are doing with theirs.
Hugs & Blessings!
