Sunday Stash Report: 2/23/14

by Valerie



Yesterday felt like spring, this morning it’s snowing.  The Sochi Olympic Games are coming to a close today.  Yesterday my son turned twenty, away at college, but we had some peeks through social media.  There’s “unrest” in Ukraine and Venezuela.  Life on Earth.

On the personal sewing front, I’m making progress on the stash.  Quilts of Valor sent me about 2.75 yards of fabric and a free pattern from Swirly Girls Design as my prize from the QOV Sew-In in early February.  The fabric is remnants donated by Connecting Threads, and also real star field (seconds, never part of a flag) from Embroidery Solutions (sorry, don’t know where to link this).  Very cool.  Makes me want to start a new quilt, which I’m sure is the point.  Thank you, all four organizations.

I finished the two commissioned quilts and mailed them off, so that’s 10.5 yards out.  Coming along.

This week:  +2.75 yards,  -10.5 yards YTD:  +30.25 yards,  -42.5 yards Net stash used 2014:  -12.25

Currently working away on a couple other all-stash projects, which feels good, a little like Spring cleaning.

Hope you’re doing what you want with your stash.
