Sunday Stash Report

Saturday, November 8, 2008
This week I bought two yards of different blacks. I have already cut them up to use in my Bricks and Stepping Stones project. I used one yard of stash to make a pillowcase. I also got the binding ready for two quilts. I know it looks like I've been backsliding, but as soon as I put the bindings on, that will use some significant yardage!

Busy packing here, want to be in Mankato before dark. I have my featherweight, cutting mats and rulers, my pink and white sewing box (that holds all my "necessary" items), a plastic tote holding the bricks, and in the baggie are boxes containing the cut 4 patches and another project I cut out when I cleaned OFF the cutting table.


I may not have my clothes or anything else ready, but I have my sewing packed!

I don't have any fabric (can you believe that!) to make pillowcases out of for the Heartstrings Sew In the weekend after Thanksgiving. Yes, I know you find it hard to believe, but anything that vaguely resembles patriotic colors has been used. I have bits and pieces I can maybe do trim and ends with, but nothing in bigger pieces for the main part. BUT, I have a coupon for my favorite store, so will have to stop and see if I can find a piece that would work.

I don't know how you think you're going to be able to put Mason down long enough to sew anything!
