Weekly update: stash report and plaid flimsy

Sunday brought the first snowfall of the season. This is the view out the front door, late afternoon.

Stash report for November:
Fabric in:  33 yds, $15 (scrap bags at the quilt show)
Fabric out:  21-7/8
YTD fabric in: 378-1/4, $1353 ($3.57/yd)
YTD fabric out: 280

In order to come out even for the year I'll need to use (or sell or otherwise de-accession) 98 yards this month.  I don't think I'll manage to do that, but I may get close.

On Thursday evening, before the second surgery, I attached all the borders for Paths and Stiles. (5-1/8 yards, part of the December stash count.)

I kept my foot elevated most of the weekend.  I sewed some (see the previous post about my OMG handwork) and read a lot.  The post op appointment is Tuesday afternoon.

  1. I pulled my book out and saw how easy Paths and Stiles is. Putting it on my 2017 list!

  2. What a lovely quilt: it looks like a scrapbuster!

    Keep the snow, okay? I'm not Find of shoveling it or maneuvering on the streets.

  3. Great scrap quilt. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  4. Lovely scrap quilt! Add another to the bucket list!
    Good luck at your check up tomorrow.

  5. Congrats on getting the borders added! 98 yards is a lot in a month - good luck in reaching for your goal. :)

  6. Congrats on getting the borders attached, that's one of my least favorite activities for some reason. Good stash busting this year even if you don't break even.

  7. Ooh, the snow is so beautiful! We get snow so rarely in North Carolina. I miss that from when I lived in NJ and MN. It is just not the same to have the house decorated with Christmas lights and wreaths when there are PANSIES blooming in the flower boxes!! Glad you're still able to sew while you recover, and hope you're back to 100% soon.

  8. Beautiful. Love the tiny squares in the borders!!!

  9. Paths and stiles is my pattern for 2017 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Yours is lovely

  10. Fellow stashbuster here. Bunion surgery. All I can say is OUCH!!! Been there twice. Oh the pain. My thoughts are with you. I was so loopy there was no way I could have sewed anything. My daughter always laughs that that was the only time she beat me playing chess. (LOL)


Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I can't respond to every comment, but be assured that I appreciate each one.
