Additions to Stash this week. 16.5 yards of various blacks and oranges and a wide backing arrived. That brings my yearly numbers to--
Stash In--16.5 yards
Stash Out--0 yards
Stash In YTD--65.5 yards
Stash Out YTD--17.5 yards
Stash is ahead--48 yards
The numbers look bleak you say? NAY!!! This week I machine sewed binding to 5 tops! They are ready for final hand stitching. One small quilt, and the rest are anywhere from 72" square to queen size. I have two more to sew the binding on while I have the extra table set up behind my DSM. The Stash numbers are heading the other way! See how everyone's done this week at Patchwork Times.
This week we had a winter storm--rain, sleet, ice, and snow. We lost power for a few hours--Ken and I got out the propane heater, butane camp stove and antique kerosene lamp. Then we took showers before the water heater cooled off. (Can you tell we've done this before??) Power was restored in a couple of hours--but about 30 miles east of us it began to get worse. Much more freezing rain and lots of damage. The news says there are still some areas without power Saturday (4 days later).
I hate the cold, I leaned out the door and took this picture the other morning--
See the snow pile? The snow was so wet and heavy our snowblower could not move it. Dan the tractor man plowed the snow by the vehicles.
Weatherman said another winter storm possible next week. I don't think I'll be working in the flower beds any time soon. One internet friend said it had been 74F and the air smelled wonderful. She said it smelled like SPRING! It smelled like spring here too. Spring is when everyone cleans their cow lots and hog barns! Its just part of life here and it doesn't last long. Soon we'll smell fresh dirt and newly mown hay.
Besides sewing on bindings this week I put together a yoyo block center and completed all the blocks to my Scrappy Trip Around the world. One binding made. Finished quilting Henrietta's 30s top and then I quilted Little Boxes. Didn't follow my goal list but did lots of sewing.
How was your week? Was the weather nice? Did you follow a list or were you distracted??
