stash report #19 and a *roar* . . .

Nothing new this week:
Used/donated this week: 0.0 yards
Used/donated year-to-date: 12.25 yards
Purchased/added this week: 0.0 yards
Purchased/added year-to-date: 56.25 yards
Net used/donated for 2012: -44.0 yards
 
I've got a couple of quick projects in mind for the next week or so which will come from stash, so there should be some changes next week!   As ever, linking up with Judy Laquidara's Patchwork Times for the weekly stash reporting!
 
Now, just because there's nothing to show above, doesn't meant there's nothing to show at all!  I finally got Sawyer's dinosaur quilt finished (which was included in an earlier stash report):
Dino's Roar is its name.  I love this little quilt ... I hope he does, too!  I had enough of the dinosaur print left over to make him a little bag to hold his quilt. 
And I may have made it roomy enough to throw in a pair of pj's ... and I added a little pocket just the right size for a toothbrush.  Just in case.  You know, if he wants to spend the night with his Neesey!!  I'll get it to him this afternoon.  Whoohoo!  And the greatest thing?  I did not spend a dime on fabric or batting or thread on this quilt *and* I can cross a UFO off my list!  YAY!
 
My folks travel into town this afternoon and we're all looking forward to spending time with them this week!  They will be meeting Ellie for the first time!  Should be fun.
 
That's it for me; we're off to worship this morning ... have a glorious Sunday!!

Oh Denise, he will LOVE it and that bag is too cute! Bet he'll keep it packed and ready to go all the time...just in case! Don't forget to share pictures when you give it to him and enjoy your visit with your folks!

What a great quilt for an awesome little boy. I'm sure there will be many days when he'll pack his bag for an overnighter with his Neesey.
