Sunday Stash – Bits and Pieces

This week, I finished the Polkadotamus quilt and got on with piecing two tops, the Bonnie & Camille and a smaller charity top.  Smaller top is below:

I also realized that while I posted the picture of the 1 Hour Basket last week, I didn’t account for that fabric in my spreadsheet last week. Bonus!

  • Used this Week: 6 yards
    • 5 yd for Polkadotamus quilt
    • 0.5 yd for secret project
    • 0.5 yd for 1 Hour Basket parts
  • Used year to Date: 131 yards
  • Added this Week: 0 yards
    • Woohoo!
  • Net Used for 2015: 60.25 yards
  • YTD Used for Charity: 65.75 yards (50% of total used)

  1. I just realised that I forgot to add some usage of mine from a few weeks ago too. I have been a bit slack with my report and in fact the last 2 months have just done an end of month report. I finished off a quilt for our patchwork club – put donated blocks together. I bought the fabric for the backing and binding plus had added some fabric from my stash for the borders and fillers on the front. I couldn’t claim the whole quilt as stash used since so much of it was from other people but I could count the bits I added and so I have put it on the spread sheet for next week. I will have a finish I get to count.

    Hope you are enjoying the holidays with the kids. I liked school holidays – no having to be so organised and get the kids moving in the morning. Mind you in Australia we don’t have as long over the summer (6 weeks) and I am not a work from home mum (well I wasn’t … I still don’t but the kids are all gone these days)

    Hope you are still finding your time to sew

    1. Your stash numbers look good to me ! (not that I’m grading your stash numbers)

      As far as made up words: the fathers of kids on my son’s soccer team talk about shankapotomus, when the ball totally misses the goal, several yards above or beside the goal, especially likely to happen on a penalty kick. Our kids are in high school, so no hurt feelings over the term.

      I meant to comment on the podcast where you were talking about your children losing teeth. Twenty years ago, when my middle son lost his first tooth, he wanted me to put it on a necklace, so he could wear it around his neck. I’m not sure where he got this caveman-like idea, but he was adamant about it. I couldn’t figure out how to drill through the tooth, so I just superglued it to a small metal bead and hung it on a chain. He wore it for a while. After I found it in his toy box, I took it, and it is now in my jewelry box along with a jumble of other baby teeth.
