Stash Report Week #11

I didn't accomplish my one goal this week as I was off on a *sewing tangent*. You see, my niece, who I haven't spoken to in about 20 years, sent me a birth announcement for her second child. Can you see the *tangent* I followed?! yes! I am in the process of making two quilts~one for the baby and one for the older brother. I also found out that a friend of mine is in the hospital~she is expected to be hospitalized for three weeks. So I was thinking about visiting and taking flowers or a plant then I thought, why not a quilt? and another *tangent*! :) I added backing fabric this week for my friend's yet to be pieced quilt.

Here is my report:

Fabric added this week: +4 yards
Fabric added this year: +57 yards

Fabric used this week: 0 yards
Fabric used this year: - 76.5 yards

Net fabric for the year: -19.5 yards

What I accomplished this week:

  • pieced and quilted Mermaid Baby
  • pieced and quilted Cars for Big Brother

Goals for next week:

  • bind Tent Flaps, pattern by Pat Sloan
  • bind Mermaid Baby
  • bind Cars for Big Brother
  • piece, quilt and bind hospital Friendship

I only have another week then Spring will be here. Looks like I will have a few carry-over projects from my Winter list...I guess that is only fitting when one experiences *sewing tangents*!

pass the IBF, please~for all that binding work! :)

Nothing wrong with tangents when you are being a blessing to others by veering off the list!

Hope you are having a good time while you sew, quilt and think about the ones who will receive the quilts----yeah, even when you work on all that binding too.

off on/ata tangent, digressing suddenly from one course of action or thought and turning to another

Good luck on all your "tangents"
