December 26th, 2010 - The Final Stash Report

Well it’s the last report of the year already. Here are the numbers.

Fabric used this week: .974 yds

Fabric used YTD: 183.75 yds

Fabric added this week: 0 yds

Fabric added YTD: 181.985 yds

Net fabric busted: 1.765 yds

 At least I’m not in the negatives. I had hoped to have a better finish but I guess I buy way too much fabric. I’ve been good these last couple of weeks but that’s because I’ve been stymied by one thing or another. Hopefully the new year will bring all good things and lots of finished quilts. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a healthy, happy New Year.

December 5th, 2010 - The Stash

Well it’s week #49 and you know what that means. Only 3 weeks left to get to our goals. Oh no!  But there’s always next year to start all over again. If you wish, that is. I’m starting to re-think my goals for next year and maybe my whole quilting hobby. Not that I want to stop but maybe really slow it down and persue other interests. But that’s for next year. On to some numbers.

Fabric used this week: 2.125 yds

Fabric used YTD: 182.776 yds

Fabric added this week: 0 yds

Fabric added YTD: 181.985 yds

Net fabric busted: 0.791 yds

 Looks like I’m just breaking even. At least I’m in the positives. I did some sewing but forgot to take pictures. On Thursday, my husband’s aunt took us out to dinner and to see Celtic Thunder, which was very good. I made her a Christmas table topper as a thank you and I didn’t even get all the binding sewed on before I gave it to her. She said she would finish it. I felt kind of bad but you know how it goes. When you’re in a hurry to complete something, everything goes wrong. My new machine was skipping stitches and pulling the top thread down in to the bobbin area. I was getting really frustrated. I had no time to do all that unpicking but I had to do it. Needless to say, it still turned out okay. Not my greatest work but it was very pretty anyway. She liked it and I even gave her a hand made card too. Lucky for me, I have a stack of cards all made up and ready to go.  

That’s it for this week. Later! M-K
