I wasn't sure how today's stash report was going to play. I *finally* finished quilting the commemorative block and got the binding on it. It's now hanging in the mini-stand!
I'd already counted that out in stash usage, so that sweet little finish wasn't going to change my report. But I was also able to get in some glorious time in the ol' Nook. I got all my HST's trimmed and stitched up the four green blocks for Lil' Charmer.
I also played around with it in EQ and added a substantial border to it, so I could do some fun hand quilting in it with my variegated rainbow thread.
I thought I'd get a lot further and have the whole top pieced by the end of the day (which would make a substantial difference to my stash report), but by lunch time, I knew that wasn't going to happen. When I took a lunch/potty/FB break, I stumbled on a darling little Easter craft and saw the promise of instant gratification, so I printed out the template and headed back to the nook.
It didn't take me long to find the perfect fabric and put one together! And so that's how I spent the rest of the afternoon . . .
Bunny Sachets! (Or pattern weights -- right??!) Aren't they darling? You can make your own . . . the free pattern and tutorial is here! And those are what kept the title of this post from being "broken record". Because the five of them used about a fat quarter's worth of material! So here's my stash report for this week . . .
Finally. A little something happening! I know it's not much, but at least it's not much in the right direction. :)
And last, but not least, I do have a little something new to be working on for some slow Sunday stitching. Joc ordered matching dresses for the girls . . .
She ordered the blue -- but they have plain collars like the pink -- only she wants them embroidered similarly to the blue. LOL! So I worked up a little custom monogram design . . .
It's a go -- that oughta keep me busy for a couple of Sundays! Linking up with Patchwork Times and Kathy's Quilts.
It's cold, but sunny and beautiful, today. I'll take it! Y'all enjoy your Sunday!
