Okay time to do my 'stash busting' report. I have not counted all my stored fabrics yet - but they all will be counted. This 'count' is for me basically. I want to know how much I have in there.
Stash - 59 1/8 yrds
Fabric Bought - 0
Fabric Given - 0
Fabric Used - well, it's all been scraps. I will figure out this # when I have it closer to done.
Here is my project that is using up my scraps. It is called 'Morning Star' and it's from one of the nickle books. I still have borders to put on it. And I already have the backing and batting, so I am going to get this project done!! This was what I was going to wait till January to start, but now, it's close to being done, so I am planning on havig it done by the end (or sooner!!) or January!! All the middle squares are of flower fabrics and the side bars are batiks. The stars are either a pale brown/beige or yellow. No, it was not planned in anyway - I just threw things on my design wall, and just started sewing. I was not sure how I felt about it when it was in pieces, laying there, but as I sewed the pieces together, and the stars started 'shining' - I like it. It's not bright as in blinding, but it is a cheery little middle and I think, since it's just for the couch to curl up under, it will be perfect! I am thinking of naming it "January Sunshine" .
And the stars have litteraly come from my scraps pile. All bits a pieces that I sorted through, and now I have stars from material that some would have discarded. The points are from squares 1 1/2", the centers 2 1/2 " - it was alot of cutting tiny pieces, then making sure I had 8 points per star!!! Not all the stars have the same points!! But that is half the fun!!
