Sunday Stash – At Last

Greetings from the Land of Vampire Internet Access, where I only have home internet after 8pm. Whut.

We had some storms last week while I was traveling for work, so the best assessment from phone support is “there’s a loose wire”that only lets the internet work after everyone else in the neighborhood is done surfing for the day. Seriously, we’ve jiggled it and turned it off and on again multiple times, but we’re waiting on the tech to come out to the house tomorrow for a permanent fix.

Anywho, we had our live taping on Saturday this week, and I think it went great. We had a small but intense audience but several people wandered by the filming and recognition dawned over them, so we have that going for us! Lynn and I went through 7 quilt tops and give various suggestions for quilting them.

I also got the quilted project from Lynn for our 2nd magazine publication, which I’m shipping out Monday or Tuesday this week.  I just need to put finishing touches on the graphics and double check the instructions again and it’ll be ready to go! Picture from the hand binding to the right; I also had to hand stitch the sleeve and label.

So, with that, I have one finish to log, but the addition of other fabric. I got the pattern for the Amethyst project bag from Sew Sweetness so wanted to pick up some fabric for it.

  • Used this week:  7 yards
    • 7 yd for Islands in the Stream quilt
  • Used Year to Date: 51.25 yards
  • Added this week: 8 yard
    • 4 yd for pattern sample
    • 2 yd for Amethyst bag/stash
  • Net Used YTD: -6 yards
  • YTD Used for Charity: 11 yards (25% of total used)

You can see more stash reports at Patchwork Times!

  1. I cannot wait to see the Islands in the Stream pattern! Love the names you two come up with!

    Glad the taping went well and hope your internet stops being undead soon.

  2. Does this Internet thing mean you can’t work? My SIL (who just moved here from the land of underground electrical, cable, etc) constantly about the overhead wires. I haven’t particularly noticed problems with my internet or electricity so I wonder what her problem is. I don’t ask, though, as it isn’t polite. She has a big stash so I’d like to keep her on my good side. 😉

    Anyway, I know you have been going into the office (UGH!), but I am curious to know what happens if your Internet is down. Do you have a portable Internet hub supplied by work to fill in the gaps?
