Stash Report Sunday - February 7, 2010

Momcat is back in my good graces. She's been pretty sick and is going to see a special doctor on Tuesday to help her. Even so, we've managed to get a few things done this week.

Used this Week:     4.25 yards
Used year to Date: 36.5 yards
Added this Week:    0 yards
Added Year to Date: 29.5 yards

Net Used for 2010:     7.0 yards
We made another pillowcase and three more blankets for Haiti. 
Momcat also has been working on a sample for the shop. We don't do applique very often and we've never made flower stems. This whole sample is a flower garden with stems that finish at 1/4". Even with doing a couple of practice stems, getting the machine blanket stitch to look just right has been a challenge.  Hopefully we'll finish it up in the next day or two and take a picture before turning it in.

If any of you have the book Toppers by Nancy Smith and Lynda Milligan, the sample is "Plaid Posies."

Hop on over to Judy's blog to see how everyone else is doing.

Happy creating (for at least 15 minutes a day)!
Pi and Momcat

I'm sorry to hear you haven't been well and wish you all the best for your doctor's appointment.
Intrigued to see what you've been working on.

Get well soon.

I'm looking forward to seeing the mastery of the machine blanket stitch. . .I'm terrible with machine work, unless it is just straight seams that is.

Seeing your pix of your "Tordie" is like looking at my Cydni....they are almost identical. How sweet! Aren't they the best kitties??

I hope you had good news at the Dr. I have the book "toppers"--I will have to go see the Plaid Posies.
