I suppose I need to pick a 'method' then stick to it, eh? I think once I've cut for a top, the fabric is pretty much committed to being in that top. I don't usually cut fabric then put it back on the self...well...maybe...but not too often. I think once I have the top pieced, I'll count the fabric as out of my stash :)
My report for this week:
- fabric received in: 5 yards
- fabric used: 16.5 yards
- total fabric year to date: -19 yards (used)
What I accomplished this week:
- finished Putzy to a flimsy
- pieced Putzy's back
- pieced Putzy's binding
- pieced a spring-y tote
Goals for next week:
- finish cutting and start sewing Rachel's MSU quilt top
- make 40 day guild participation prizes
Wow! Putzy (the black and gold quilt) was a real stash eater. I had to add up the yardages called for in the pattern twice to believe it...she was 15 yards worth!
I decided to treat myself to a 'me' sewing project since I finished Putzy and her back and made this spring-y type tote that I will use as a purse. I'm hoping to leave the snowflakes behind and see some flowers popping up soon...very soon *s* DD had brought home some of her art work so I decided to include it in the photo op. The tote pattern is from Atkinson Design's Happy Hour Booklet. I've made this pattern twice and each tote turned out a little different :) must be my sewing...
I'm conducting a survey for my day guild and want to make a little something to give out. I've already brought some seeds and was thinking about a fabric postcard. Would you like to receive a fabric postcard as a give-away? and would you want it to be 'a St. Patrick's Day' theme or a 'Friendship' theme? I'm going simple and fuse fabric on the front and back then zig-zag around the edges...
EDIT: I forgot about the 5 yards Mamaspark sent me of Sparty fabric...yikes...How could I? (12:52 pm)
