Stash & BDSI Report

I haven't stopped to take time to post with the holidays and time with family, but I do have a little stash usage to report and I also did some sewing yesterday along with the Boxing Day Sew-in crowd. 

In the stash side, I had a good week. I made a pillowcase, finished gifts for the kids teachers, made a Christmas wall hanging, and cut out the parts for a new quilt. All of this makes my stash report look pretty good! 

Fabric added this week: 0 yards
Fabric used this week: 5 7/8 yards

Fabric added year to date: 45 3/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 121 3/8 yards

Net fabric used: 76 yards

And, since the wonky trees was a pattern in my stash, I get to count it as a pattern used, so now I am at -1 pattern for the year. Not sure that I will get to zero by the end of the week, but I am glad to be just barely in the hole! 

Last night at about 9 pm, I finally got to my sewing room and finished up a UFO. It is a pillow/wall hanging for Jenna and she will get it when she moves to her new room (my current sewing room) this year. I have some basement cleaning out to do before I move out, then we will paint and she'll move in. I made it so that it can have a pillow form put in it or it can be hung on the wall, so we'll see what her preference is when we get there. 

After I got one marked off the list, I started a new quilt, one of the items on my goal list for the year. I know I won't have it totally done by year end, but would love to have the top put together. I have 8 blocks made and will show pictures later this week when I have a little more done. For now, I am heading back to make a little more progress while the kids enjoy a little tv and all their new toys!
