November 1st, 2009 - Stash Week #44

Slowly but surely, I’m creeping closer to the positives. As long as I don’t buy any fabric and make 10 or so quilts by the end of the year I should reach my goal. Like that’s going to happen! But at least I’m aware. Isn’t that one of the objectives of this report? Well it’s one of mine.

Fabric added this week: 0 yds

Fabric added YTD: 230.44 yds

Fabric used this week: 2.43 yds

Fabric used YTD: 218.04 yds

Net fabric busted: -12.4 yds

 I made a few more of the photo wallhangings. I need to dye or paint some dryer sheets. They make the most perfect leaves and greenery. The gauziness of them blends all the raw edges  of the green snippets and makes it look like leaves up in a tree.

 During the week I drove a friend of my son’s home and she said that some people were standing in front of her house taking pictures of their tree. And later in the week on my mail route I was walking through some leaves the same colour as her tree and I had this great idea. All I needed was a picture of the same kind of tree with the same colour leaves all on the ground. I asked my sister to get me such picture and she asked me where this tree was. I said it doesn’t matter where it was, it’s just needs to be a tree in those colours. She thinks I’m nuts. She takes all my photos for me. I just tell her what I want and she shoots away. You know when you get an idea in your head and every other idea is stuck in neutral. I think I better take my sister out to get me that photo.

Have a great weekend.

    I can’t wait to see your project….almost all our leaves are gone after the windstorm we had.

    Those little wallhanging quilts are so adorable. I have always been afraid to try to use the photo transfer technology to fabric-print jam etc.
    I like them both very much. Good job.

    I don’t think you are nuts, I know you are nuts.
