November 1st and Stash Busting Report Week #44

What a difference 4 weeks makes in the backyard! As you can see, most of the leaves have fallen and the flowering plants are gone. I have noticed an increase in the squirrel activities as they prepare for winter hiding their acorns.

I came down with a cold this week. The whole 9 yards: stuffy, runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat and scratchy voice...but I am on the mend as the whole stuffed up head congestion thing seems to be 'loosening up'. (That's about as delicate as I can describe it!) I don't remember the last time I had such a complete cold so, hopefully, this will be my major sickness of the season :) Although being sick, didn't stop me from attending the guild's Shop Hop and doing a little stash enhancement.

My report for this week follows:
  • fabric received in: 11 yards
  • fabric used: -8.5 yards (used)
  • net fabric for the week: +2.5 yards (added)

Net fabric for the year: +19.5 yards (added)

What I accomplished this week:

  • quilt and bound R/W/B Bento Boxes
  • pieced 'Orange Sunshine' to a flimsy

Goals for next week:

  • load, quilt and bind 'Orange Sunshine'
  • pick a project to do!

This will be another short week as I have my Gammill Textures class at Quilt Center in Janesville on Friday. I have a list of projects I need to complete but I'm not exactly sure which one I will do...so this week, I am leaving that goal open ended.

Stash enhancement....lol, I just love the way that sounds. You had a good week though and got your Bento Boxes done to boot. And finally, you'll get your quilting class. I'll be spending a few days at MQX in April and am trying to (intelligently) choose a couple classes to take. The show is moving to Rhode Island in 2010 and no longer accessible for me, so this is a one shot deal. Feel better!

The texture class looks like a good one. Have fun, get over your cold. And maybe while you're there you can have "SEX" and exhance your stash!

Janesville, eh, I think we need to go to Wisconsin....couldn't link to the new store though without a pass word. My aunt and uncle live in Brown Deer, not terribly far from JV, or at least they're closer than we are now! It's way too much fun to enhance your stash, isn't it?

The grass is still staying green but I bet that won't last long if you start having overnight frosts?

Sorry you aren't feeling so hot---starting to wonder how any one head could produce so much liquid??

Sounds like the long put off quilting class is back on--hurray for you! Can't wait to see how that effects your long arming. Just hope the cold is better by then.

Hope you are feeling better. I'm just getting over one myself. Must be making the rounds in Wisconsin :(

Sorry about your cold. Hope it leaves you very quickly. Where is Janesville in relation to West Bend?

ah, good to hear you are getting over that cold- I seem to fighting one off myself now-have fun at your class- it sounds terrific!
