Sunday Stash Report

Sunday, October 11, 2009
Okay, let's get THAT out of the way. No change in the stash report. -10 yards.

But, I KNOW you think I've been slacking off. So I took pictures of a FEW things I did this week.

Yesterday I cooked and canned pumpkin, 17 jars. And made pumpkin pie bars and muffins--sent some of the baking home with my sister for her and my dad. See that big white bucket beside the jars--I noticed I was low on laundry soap, so I made a batch of homemade before I went to bed.




And after I made the soap I wasn't tired anymore, so decided to sew.

If you look carefully, left to right, there are 9 patches with tan sashings, the pink baby top, the navy blue/white stepping stones set into rows, underneath it is Alycia's #2 not so top secret quilt (needs some "unsewing") and the two boxes on the sewing cabinet arm--one holds bricks I cut (I HAD hoped to take some to Linda) and another set of 9 patches for MY quilt. And remember, I have another set of b/w bricks and stepping stones on ANOTHER wall sewn into rows. That is SIX quilts I can count in various stages of putting together. ROFL If I get them finished before the end of the year (and yes I plan to try to) then I think I might break 100 yards! All those quilts except the baby quilt are full size or bigger.

I filled an entire 40 gallon garbage can with batting bits and trimmings while cleaning my cutting room. I have a whole basket of noodles, and my bricks basket if at least half full AGAIN. The shelf cubes are looking much more empty.

You'll have a huge bust when you finish all those quilts. Can't wait to see your progress!

Hmm... a garbage can to store all those scraps of batting. That's a great idea, since I just have bags of scraps stuffed into the closet. It makes sense since i am starting to work on my fabric scraps into something manageable.

Now, to look around the house for something like a can, before I go out to buy one.

Now,now....you SAW the pictures of my stash. We need to find someone who really NEEDS those extra bricks...and then maybe I can slip her a few too!!!

Ugh, I don't like the looks of that snow. We had some the other day and I wouldn't be surprised if we get some tonight. My question is, "What happened to Fall?"

You have been such a busy bee! That pumpkin pie looks so yummy, and your design wall looks "delicious", too! You've got me all inspired to work hard today! :) Take care, Dianne

Wow, such accomplishments! How did you can 17 jars of pumpkin? I'd be interested in your process. I got two pumpkins ready for a pie yesterday and just getting the seeds and such out was a hassle. My hat's off to you!

Would you mind sharing your homemade laundry soap recipe? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Your homemade soap also got my interest. I do hope you will share the process.
