Sunday Stash Report

Sunday, January 31, 2010
My week has been busy but quiet.  Is that an oxymoron??  I have worked on the blue blocks and the bricks and stepping stones and made great progress.  I also picked out a top to load.  But I haven't made pillowcases yet, I still have time.  Maybe!! 

My totals are the same as last week.  Nothing in and nothing finished.  I count "experiments into fashion" the same as I did Mason's crib sheets!  But I'm feeling good as I can see finishes coming up.  Stash reports make me focus and stay on track.   But, I still have lot of fun!!

Bought Year to Date -34.35
Finished YTD 36.85
YTD  +2.50 yards 

Tonight went went to my sister Kathy and FAVORITE BROTHER IN LAW PAUL'S and had snacks and played cards.  I am sorry to report that the women WHUPPED the men BAD!  I made 5 kuchen today--4 cherry and one prune,  and a cheese ball, Ken picked up pop, chips, salami, and cheese at the store.  Tomorrow we are heading to Yankton to the Lewis and Clark Visitor Center for "Eagle Days".  I'm not sure what the program will be, last year there were several types of raptors and it was VERY up close and personal!

I've been having a great time--what have you been doing?  I find out all SORTS of things reading stash reports!!

And, as I watch the weather dumping snow all down the east coast, I am saying "Thank you Lord!!!"  I am counting down the days until spring!

Have fun at "Eagle Days!" I LOVE birds, so that sounds like so much fun to me.

Sounds like you got a lot done this week. Good going!

Wish I could join you at Eagle Days!

Are you rubbing it in that we're getting snow in the south and east and you're not? Well, I guess you've had your share so that's okay! I'm a former Black Hills resident so we try to keep tabs on what's happening back home:)

Kuchen sounds yummy!

We had a snow day on Friday for DH, and the Assistant had a ball sledding, but I too am ready for spring - or at least a little balmier temperatures.

I've been watching an eagle cam and it is fun when the birds land nearby. They are just beautiful. I'm hoping that they use the same nest this year.

Have a great time at Eagle Days!

Just knowing that a finish gets to be counted as stash gone keeps me going. I can hardly wait to see what you are so close to counting. Hurry! Did I mention that patience is not one of my virtues? LOL

Best wishes on your numbers this week.
I was talking to my daughter in Maine this AM. She said it was 3 degrees, of course that was after telling her how cold we are 48 degrees at the time, but it has been raining off and on. She laughed at me and called me a "baby" I can't help it, the dampness is in your bones and I'm getting older.

Spring. Hmm. Oh, yeah, I vaguely remember what that is....

We're supposed to get yet another snowstorm this coming weekend!

This time I'm OFF!
