Sunday Stash - Climb Every Mountain, Bind Every Quilt

As I said over on Facebook, this weekend I turned 39, finished 6 pillowcases, made two quilts, and climbed a mountain. I’m done!

I’ll put the finished touches on Scrappy Swoon tonight for pictures tomorrow (assuming it doesn’t rain!), and will also post pictures of the two Aero Quad quilts for charity.  Right now I think my camera is still hiding out in my car and I’m not going downstairs to get it, since the mountain this morning was the equivalent of 60 flights of stairs according to my FitBit.

  • Used this Week: 22.25 yards
    • 8.25 yd for Scrappy Swoon Redux (binding is 2/3 done, and will be finished during tonight’s TV watching)
    • 6.5 for 6 ConKerr pillowcases (final stitches going on this afternoon, but a safe bet)
    • 0.75 worth of charms for grandniece’s gift
    • 3.25 yd for Aero Quad 1 quilt

    • 3.5 yd for Aero Quad 2 quilt
  • Used year to Date: 241.5 yards
  • Added this Week: 6.75 yards
    • 1.75 yd of Patriotic fabric from a friend for birthday present
    • 5 yd of mixed FQs from my MIL for a birthday present
  • Net Used for 2013: 126.75 yards
  • YTD Used for Charity: 113.75 yards (47% of total used)

    Great stash numbers. Will check out your Design wall to see your finishes tomorrow. BTW, I’m a FitBit user too. Want to be friends to encourage each other?? I’m just a newcomer to walking with it, but a little competition helps me keep going.

    We need a new word for when other people’s activities make you feel like you should be joining in, but are just not ready yet, ie all the Twilters using Fitbit and I know I should too, but don’t have the desire. No one is “guilting” me into it, so that’s not the word. Hmmm…
