May 24th, 2009 - Stashbusting Report Week 20 & 21

 Sorry I haven’t posted for 2 whole weeks but I’ve been very busy. I decided this year that I should do some gardening since we were having a little family get-together and my yard looked like crap. We didn’t do anything last year, not even put out the patio furniture. Two weeks ago my hubby cleaned off the patio and went to get the furniture out of the garage and couldn’t find it. Oh yeah, we got rid of it in the fall. So I had to go find some new stuff. Then if I had new stuff, I had better make the yard look as nice as the furniture. So after many hours of labour I managed to make it look great. Now to make sure it’s watered.

Anyway here’s 2 weeks of stashbusting.

Fabric added these 2 weeks: 0

Fabric added ytd: 68.28

Fabric used these 2 weeks: .25 yds ( a class I just took today)

Fabric used ytd: 96.02 yds

Net fabric busted: 27.74 yds

Hopefully tomorrow I will post a picture of the photo landscape wallhanging that I made in this class today. The teacher, Michele Dobrin, has taught all over Canada. She has been in the 2009 Quilting Arts Calander.  And I think she was in the year before also. I would really like to take another class by her. She does some kind of embellishment class where you dye paper towels and dryer sheets and stuff like that. She has also coloured some Tyvek with paints. I think it would be a lot of fun.

Happy quilting.

    You are still doing quite well in stashbusting… and gardening is also a worthwhile task. I consider gardening to be my summer exercise with all the bending, weeding, lifting, etc.

    It make sitting down at the sewing machine oh so wonderful and relaxing…

    Enjoy the family outing in your backyard!
