Stash Report – Week 43, 2017

Guess what?!?  Nothing In and Nothing Out!  And it was my birthday last weekend.  I almost succumbed to the pressure and almost went to my LQS on Friday but I didn’t.  I had no reason to go other than to buy and pet fabric.  Which I could do at home.  I ended up heading home, finishing up the frankenbatt for Secret Project #2.  I even basted everything together.  All I need to do now is quilt it.  On Saturday, I pulled everything out of my fabric closet to put the batting bin back when I had the very intelligent thought that I should probably get the batting ready for my next project.  That way I wouldn’t have any excuse not to do it and it was already out anyway.  I am feeling pretty smart about that decision, thank you very much.  Anyway, in reality, my next project is Celtic Solstice.  And if you recall, that baby is a pretty BIG quilt.  Capital letters B-I-G!  BIG!  So, I’m not going to frankenbatt that.  I’ll pull the batting for that from my roll.  The next one after that is Quilty Little Christmas.  And that is 2×5 and is going to be a wall hanging.  A great project for frankenbatting.  I laid it on the floor and got the pieces ready for another frankenbatt.  I was not in the mood to actually piece it together (everything from my closet was strewn about on the floor.)  So I cut where I needed to cut and pinned the sides I wanted to be together so I wouldn’t have to remember.  The batting is now happily in my project bin for that quilt.  Right now, my quilty mojo is still missing.  However I am able to work on one project at a time.  Right now that project is Secret Project #2.  It’s very slow progress but progress is progress and I’m happy with the little bit I’m able to do.
