Sniff, sniff & Stash Report 3

Redwork block featuring a heart
Redwork block about marking fabrics

It seems like everyone has a cold and I hate to feel left out. Since the weather outside has been frigid, I don't mind staying in as much. I've worked on my bonus stitcheries from Bea's BOM. I also did the stitching for another armchair caddy that Helen designed.

red fabric basket about five inches wide using three rows of half square triangles that Shirley was throwing away
At the retreat last week-end, I worked on another DNP quilt for the UGRR and spent way too much time on two challenges that both involved ugly fabric. Shirley at the next table started giving me her cut off triangles and the pile grew to something I thought I could use to make a little fabric basket. The half square triangles finish at one inch. Before we left for home, I gave it to her to remind her that little scraps can be used to make something.


Here's my stash report for Week 3

Fabric added this week: 2 yards
Fabric added year to date: 11.5 yards

Fabric used this week: 16.5 yards
Fabric used year to date: 21 yards

Net fabric busted: 9.5 yards!!!!!!

Lucky Shirley. I would love to have one of those little bags. So, if our paths ever cross, be prepared to put your hand in your pocket and find it's full of triangles I put there. LOL.
