Last year, I was going to figure out how much fabric I have. I counted alot of it, but I also left a fair bit uncounted. It's going to stay that way. So, my numbers are going to work for me - I am starting 'fresh' with the number I had as my total last time I did this, and it will change as I finish things, so can count that fabric as used, and if I buy anything to add to the pile.....
My stash stands at: 173 yrds
nothing in and nothing out
And that is where I will start the year at. Here is to finishing everything I have started.
And yes, I started a new thing yesterday..... "Piece & Goodwill" from the Quiltmaker magazine #130. I was just going through my stash looking for the scraps I could use in this - reds, greens and neutrals. Then, I put them all into seperated bags... Then thought, why not cut some pieces, while you are not feeling good and are just watching TV anyway, so I did....... then I got up yesterday morning and found more little scraps I could cut from all three bags...... then, well, how hard is it to do that square piece on the green rectangle?? Do I have to mark every square so it lines up right on the rectange and will work like it's supposed to??? Had to check out my skill, so, now, I have actually started working on this project!! I am still going to be doing it as leader/enders, but I am having fun with it right now.
Yes, the Christmas Lights is still waiting for border #2, I have them cut and waiting. Border fabric #3 is still waiting to be ironed!
I love to sew little pieces of fabric together. I really enjoy that. Cutting out and working with large pieces of material.... not so much!! But borders have to be cut and sewn on too, so it will be done!
