Stash Report – Week 40, 2017

My numbers have not been great. First, I’ve been out.  Last weekend, the hubby and I, and some friends took a trip to Solvang, CA.  It’s a nice little trip but a weekend was more than enough.  We’d been before but never for a whole weekend so we were able to try different things around the area that we normally do not get to try.

1st, we went to a lavender farm, Clairmont Farms.  The lavender was not in bloom but we got to buy a whole lot of lavender.  I have problems sleeping so I keep lavender next to my bed.  I love it.

2nd, we visited OstrichLand.  Who knew how aggressive ostriches are. I plan to go back when ostrich eggs are in season and try one of those.

3rd, I went to Creation Station, the local quilt shop.  I was able to buy 1.5 yards of fabric.  And learned that they periodically have weekend retreats.  I’m going to find out the details and see if I can make it one of these days.

We ate, we played, we relaxed.  But I wasn’t able to quilt so I’ve added a bit and used none at all! I’m okay with that.

The fabric stash:  

  • Used since last time: 0 yards
  • Used year to date: 31 yards
  • Added since last time: 0 yards
  • Added year to Date: 115.5 yards
  • Net ADDED for 2017: 84.5 yards

Slow Stitching Sunday

And for Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy at Kathy Quilts… well, I’m at a college thing with my daughter today so no changes in this part but I missed last week’s post to show what I was able to get done the Sunday before that –

A Rainbow Garden!

Here’s where I was last time:

Block 8 – in progress

Here I am now…

A Rainbow Garden
Block 8 – in progress

I even missed my mini group meeting this month so I wasn’t able to work on this then either.  Oh well – sometimes that’s just how it is.  Hopefully I’ll be able to work on this sometime this week.

~happy crafting!

  2. The block may be getting done slowly, but it’s getting done, and it will be great when finished. You’ve added a lot less fabric this year!
