Stash Report - February 21, 2010

Very little sewing happened here this week. Momcat finally got to the ear, nose and throat specialist. She's on a third round of antibiotics, three different decongestants, has a CT scan scheduled in two weeks and will have a flex scope after that. She's been croaking and a bit draggy from all the meds.

She did start quilting a top that she finished in April of last year. I don't know why, but she doesn't like laying the quilt out on the floor to baste it only to have all five of us kitties helping her. Sundance is really good about repositioning the masking tape holding down the back. Butch likes to smooth out all the lumps (sometimes he makes new ones). Trouble prefers burrowing underneath the backing just to make sure there's no dust on the floor. Logan sits in the very middle of everything. I like to ensure that all the safety pins are closed, so I follow Momcat along as she pins. I really don't understand why this frustrates her so.

I did get to help her with some knitting. I love knitting! Unlike my younger siblings, I don't grab for the yarn or try to get the needles. I just like cuddling up next to Momcat on the recliner knowing that she's going to be there for a little while.

Oh yes, the stash report. Our numbers are great this week because Momcat donated 25 yards of fabric to a local charity. Even though we didn't sew it, it comes from our stash for a good cause. So we're counting it as stash used. 

Used this Week:     25 yards
Used year to Date: 64.6 yards
Added this Week:    0 yards
Added Year to Date: 29.5 yards

Net Used for 2010:     35.1 yards

Here's a hint of what we're likely to finish next week. You can see that Butch and Sundance are holding Momcat's place until she feels like getting back to the sewing machine.

Now hop on over to Judy's blog to see how everyone else is doing!

And don't forget to take 15 minutes to create,
