First, my stash report for last week - I'll keep it simple for now:
Fabric purchased last week: 0 yards
Total fabric purchased in 2012: 0 (not counting the bag of scraps in February!)
Fabric used last week: 3 yards
Total fabric used in 2012: 4-1/2 yards
** Although I started my stash report in February, I didn't buy any fabric in January **
I've been working on my traditional block project for June, and I've also made a few string blocks. It's really hard to count strings, you know what I mean? So, I'm doing a "guestimate" and saying 3 yards total used for last week.
I was thinking it's sorta early for strawberries - even if they're from Florida or California - so I bought these with one eye closed, as it were. I had some for breffus this morning and they were just fine... could have been just a touch sweeter and there were a few underripe green spots, but overall they were very good!
I have this cute little unfinished top that someone gave me that I want to work on; she knew she wouldn't finish it and didn't want to toss it out...
I like these pups! I measured the pieces for each block and figured out the measurements for the pattern, I know I'd like to make this one from scratch someday. It's approximaely 22 x 27 as is, I was thinking to enlarge it by adding at least one light- or medium-toned border, and another one using this fabric:
I think these playful kitties would look really cute with the serious-looking puppies (are they hounds?). I got this fabric from Hancock Fabrics when their store was closing in December, who knew it'd be the perfect thing for an unknown project! I might even fussy cut some of the kitties and applique them onto a border. I don't want the finished quilt to look too dark but you almost can't avoid it, given the background color she used for the blocks.
Now, did you notice all the strings attached to my design wall? I have a lint roller and I thought I'd see if it could pick up any of those strings...
Yep, it picked up quite a few but that's just the tip of the iceberg! I got some of the longer ones off though.
Well today it's errands, a bit of sewing and some basement cleaning time. I haven't claimed that extra hour of daylight yet, but it's out there! Have a great Monday everybody; let's see how much we can squeeze out of this week!
Sew forth and sew on...
