First the stash busting report because miracle of miracles, I have been quilting and I have finished (or finished enough to tally it) a project! It’s been a while since that happened. I even turned down an offer of a friend to stop at the quilt shop last Friday night – well if you aren’t doing much sewing it makes it easier to pass up a stop (plus I knew it was too late and they were already closed). LOL
Anyway Yardage used year to date : 27 yards Yardage added YTD: 5.75 Used this week: 10.5 Net busted YTD: 21.25
The border is now quilted on this one – got it finished last night. Thought I had made the binding at the time I made the top but perhaps not — or it’s hidden in one of the places I didn’t look but I was tired of making a mess in the sewing room and – AHA! – found there was still some of the plaid in the stash and that’s what I wanted for the binding anyway.
As I was looking for binding, I came across more Stack ‘n Whack style blocks. I call them the Mutant Frogs. Because of the spacing /repeat of the frogs, they don’t make quite as interesting kaleidoscope but they’ll make a fun little boy’s quilt I think.
And my second sweater is done – sewed the buttons on last night and if the weather warms up a little I might actually get to wear it (since it’s cold and damp and dreary today – raining raining raining – and it’s supposed to be that way all this coming week!) Not a great photo since it’s a bathroom selfie and the light in my bathroom is throwing off the color of the sweater but until I get a nice sunny day to take a photo…..
So my Knit the Stash totals – well there’s much more yarn added in so far this year than knit but with this sweater finish, I’ve now knit 7,945 yards so far this year – not bad.
Now, a bit of brunch to find, and then a bit of cleaning, and since it’s such a rainy dreary day, I think the rest of the day will be spent watching movies and either layering another quilt or knitting or both!
Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for…..
