Stash Report Sunday - July 25, 2010

What an easy-peasy stash report. Nothing in, nothing out.

Used this Week:                0  yards
Used year to Date:      117.5  yards
Added this Week:             0 yards
Added Year to Date:    47.75   yards


Net Used for 2010:     69.75 yards
This is the shop sample that Momcat just turned in. We had a lot of fun together fussy cutting the 5" squares. It's such an easy quilt to make that we've already started on another one.  The pattern is called "Go Fish" and is from the Dealer's Choice book by Atkinson Designs.

Speaking of the shop, the sign blew down a few months ago during a severe storm. It broke in the parking lot. Best Friends Quilt Shoppe's owner, Jan, took the opportunity to add a little pizazz. Take a look at the workmen installing the new awesome hot pink sign!

The front door arch is going to be painted in the same color. Very exciting!

Now take some time to visit Judy's blog to see how everyone else is doing.  Have a great week!

Momcat's Helpers

Momcat's still working on her Doggy Big Shirt. She's finished with the sleeves, discovering that only one was sewn on backward. Since she realized it after she'd already put the cuffs on she's leaving it this way and will just establish a new trend of wearing your cuff buttons on the front of your arm.

This is a pretty typical scene at our house.  You can see that the sewing room is fully staffed.  That's Trouble on the bed, Maggie on the floor, Sundance on the ironing board with me and...wait, where's Butch?  He's our only male and we sure have to put up with a lot from him, so where is he when there's work to be done?

Typical. Catching a few ZZZZZZs in the kitty condo away from his sisters.

Letting sleeping cats lie,

Doggy Big Shirt Update

Mwaaaahahahaha!!! I am rejoicing that Momcat has hit a snag in making her Doggy Big Shirt.  She's at the point of making the sleeves and doesn't understand the directions. I heard some bad words and then something about going to the shop to get some expert advice from Cheryl, who teaches the class.

Here's what she has so far:

The front.

The back.

The sleeves and buttons.

I'd help her out of her dilemma if she were making a feline version. That'll teach her to play favorites with the DAWG!!

Stash Report....Monday? Three Weeks & A Day Late

This is what happens when Momcat gets busy doing things other than quilting. She forgets about the Stash Report! 

Fortunately, we busted a little bit, but brought in some as well.  Momcat has stayed true to her New Year's Resolution of making no fabric purchases except what is needed for a specific project.  In October the shop is promoting the Eleanor Burns' book Quilt Block on American Barns as a Block of the Month.  That required a little yardage for barn texture, sky and animals.

Momcat has been working on her Big Shirt, little bags, 9 Patch A Day Blocks, and Rotating Snowball Quilt Along Blocks.

She spent the day at Cathy's on Saturday. Both of them busted some projects.

Momcat is on the left, Cathy is on the right. 

Cathy's baby quilt using yellow bubble Minkee for the center and borders.

Cathy's potato bag.

Momcat's 9 Patch A Day Blocks for July.

Cathy's beautiful Rotating Snowball Quilt Along flimsy.

And that finally brings us to the report:

Used this Week:                4  yards
Used year to Date:      117.5  yards
Added this Week:             2.5 yards
Added Year to Date:    47.75   yards


Net Used for 2010:     69.75 yards
