I finished the top for Moon Glow yesterday! I count these small finishes so I can celebrate the small stuff. I did add yardage though. My LQS had a Labor Day sale last Monday and knowing that I needed backing for Moon Glow and soon Hampton Ridge, I bought 17 yards of fabric on sale. So my net added for the year is 39.58. I’m not sad or frustrated or angry with the numbers being what they are though… I remind myself that last year at this time I was +60 yards and in 2013 I was +125 yards. So even though I’m up, my progression from year to year sees me adding less and less.
With all the yardage I’ve added and the scraps I’ve got, I’m really excited that Charlotte announced the cutting instructions for the next Scrapitude – “Scrappy Stars Around the Corner”. Here’s a link to her blog… It’s a lot of cutting but I think it’s a great way to reduce the amount of scraps I’ve got hanging around. First clue is released in January so there is plenty of time to get the cutting done.

~Have a quilty week!
Moon Glow turned out beautifully! Sometimes you have to buy before you can use. Good luck to have a record stash management year for you.
Thanks Dee Dee!
Small??? That’s a HUGE finish! And so beautiful. More fabric means more beauty in your life. =)
Thanks for the reminder Susan! It is a HUGE finish! 🙂
