January 30th, 2011 - The Stash

Hello quilters. Long time, no post but that’s my plan. I spend way too much time on the computer so I decided to only do a monthly  stash report. and here it is.

Fabric added this month and to date: 0 yds

Fabric used this month and to date: 3.47 yds

Net fabric busted: 3.47 yds

 I’m trying to finish the ever growing pile of UFOs in various stages of completion. They mostly need quilting so I’m working on that. Then there’s the comfort quilt list that just keeps on growing. So many really ill people that could use a little hug from a warm and cuddly quilt.  I have a few of those quilt tops almost done but after I get all these baby quilts out of the way, I’ll be working on them. 

 So on that note, have a great week and I’ll talk to you all later. Mary-Kay

January 1st, 2011 - Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a great 2010. Now it’s time for 2011 and lots of plans and maybe some resolutions. I really hate making them but sometimes it’s not a resolution but a change in the way you do things. I have lots of changes I might make, depending on how I feel. 

 Today I feel like quilting , so that’s what I’m doing and lots of it. I’ve already sewn the binding on a large bed quilt and it’s now on the bed. I finished 2 Christmas table toppers and they will be put away for gifts for next year. I planned on giving them away at Christmas but I never finished them. I was ill over the holidays and am now on the road to recovery. I think quite a few people have had this cold and it seems to linger for a few weeks. I’m drinking lots of water and getting lots of rest so hopefully it will be gone just as quickly as it came.

 I saw on JudyL’s blog, she has an UFO challenge going on. I was thinking of doing it but I’ve decided to keep my life simple for the next year. No challenges, no design wall Monday and maybe no weekly stash report. I didn’t do very many Design Wall Mondays but I did the Stash Reports. It takes a lot of time to make each post with some pictures and then read everyone else’s post for that week. Comments need to be read and some need answers. I think I waste way too much time on this computer and I could be using that time to quilt. So, I’m limiting myself to monthly stash reports and that’s it. I hope to read everyone’s blog not right away everyday like I usually do but as a break from quilting. Your blogs aren’t going anywhere and they’ll still be there when I have time to read them. So on that note, I think I have some quilting to do. See you all later.
