Stash Report 4/29/2012

I havent reported in almost a month. The first two weeks I didn't do any sewing...after that I was busier than busy.  Football season started for the little one and I was also really busy trying not to do the things that needed to be done so I wasted a lot of time., but I think I am back on track. Well, maybe not totally on track but I just decided that things aren't going to get done if I don't do them.  It doesn't matter if I like to do it or not but if I just spend a few minutes everyday doing something it will become a habit. Believe it or not just doing 10-15 minutes of something (sewing, knitting, applique, cleaning) every day...by end of the week you will be amazed at how much you get done.  I have a tendency to get side tracked on the computer (farmville anyone). So now with the new motto I have been able to cut kits, finish a couple rows of knitting, crocheting, still working on some of the cleaning though, and I feel tons better.

Anywho, back to the reason for the post.  I finished a couple of tops this week. I have the binding on my Orca Bay and can't wait until that is done (might be awhile....binding takes me forever). I also miscounted some fq's a couple of weeks ago, couldn't read my hand writing and I couldn't remember buying 60 FQ's..well a couple of days later I remembered---- I knocked over a brand new FQ tower I bought...my fabric doesn't even let me forget.

I have almost all of my blocks done for Dear Jane this month as well, just need to finish appliqueing two of them...I really need to force myself to finish them by Wed.

Used this Week: 19.84 yards
Used year to Date: 93.79  yards
Added this Week: 48.84 yards

Added Year to Date: 121.34 yards
Net Used for 2012: -27.55 yards

Not the greatest numbers but I did buy all of the fabric to make the top of my Sylvias Bridal Sampler...I have 2 more QOV to finish this week---one needs the binding the other needs quilting, and I have one more ready to piece together....now if I could just get busy....

For more stash reports head on over to Judy's .



  1. Awesome numbers! Your DJ blocks are adorable and can't wait to see your Sylvia's Bridal quilt come together - that is such a lovely quilt.

  2. Wow almost 20 yards out for one week! That's awesome.

    It is amazing how much you can get done even in just 15 minutes a day. My problem is just getting into the sewing room. Once there, I can stay for hours. I host a linky party every Tuesday for a whole crew of us that try to find 15 minutes a day to work on quilting, embroidery, knitting, or crochet. If I have to report on myself, I'm a lot more likely to follow through. Please come join us some Tuesday.

  3. It is really amazing how much fabric there is in a bunch of fat quarters. You DJ blocks are sweet. Doing a good job using your fabric.
