Stash Busting Week 12

Well, it's Sunday again. How did that come back so quickly???

Here are my numbers for this week:

Stash - 164 yrds
Old Stash counted - 2 1/4 yrds

Fabric added - 0
Fab. added year to date - 15 1/8 yrd

Fabric uced - 2 1/2 yrds
Fabric used YTD - 9 yrds

Stash Count - 163 3/4 yrds

And I have my "Boxed Stars" blks all made now, and the sashing and border found in my stash!! That is what I counted!! It is good to use your stash - I bought the sashing fabric woundering why I even looked at it, but then I pulled it out and put by these guys and it looks nice with it. It's calming - then I have a green to go around the whole thing. I wil show it later.

And I am adding a book to my list of things I've read. This one is called "The Avian Ark" and it's all about a family who has made their home into a bird clinic and self-taught rehabilitators so these birds can be released healthy back into the wild. Interesting read. Drawn pictures of the birds, but I would have like actual pictures because I had never heard of some of these birds before!! Another Canadian book, and another older one. I have books that I have collected to read, and don't.... But, now I am!! And my book list is basically for me to know what I have read this year!!! And to remind myself to make time for reading.

Have a great week. It's SPRING!!!! And I will see you next week!!!! With a bigger report and things done.

Goals for this week:

-Get boxed stars sashing & border on

-Goose BOM next step done!!!!!!

-And don't start anything if not on my list!!!!!!

and I just got reminded about Double Delight!! I am working on - or going to be working on I should say - Step 5 of Double Delight!! Thanks to Isabel at 's stash report, she mentioned this quilt and a lightbulb went off!!! Thanks!!!

And with that, I am outta here!!! (going to see what you've been up to!!!) ;-)


  1. Do you keep all the books you read or just the ones that you really like. I try to keep the good ones and some hardcovers that artoo expensive to give away. And all the Canadian authors, of course! Reading and quilting, that's the life!!!!

  2. Your blocks look great! You have been a busy gal this week haven't you!!! Good stuff!8-)
    I am managing to get more sewing done now that my comp is in my sewing room... Nothing major, but slow and steady for sure... 8-)
    The temp here is +5C, nice enough for walking the fur-girls, but too sloppy and wet to be bothered with it...
    Happy stitchings!

  3. Your blocks are looking good and great goals!

    way to go! on finding stash to work with the blocks! :)

  4. Your stashbusting is going swell! I like the box stars more and more...

    I haven't started any new books. I need to go to the library tomorrow to turn some books and and pick up some holds.

  5. love those boxed stars! I will be watching for the finish.

  6. Love your boxed stars -- really beautiful work! Best regards, Dianne B. in England

  7. I love Bonnie's web site. Her ideas are so good. I want to make a Pineapple blossom quilt. I just finished a Sister's Choice. I need to get working on another top soon, the stash is calling to me.

  8. I need to make some of the boxed stars ... another pattern I've fallen in love with too. Love yours.
