Stash Report Week 32
We are having some rather un-August like weather these days. It's also the last week before school starts. This is the first summer I've had to entertain my 6 yr old. Other mothers must be made of stronger stuff because I can't wait for the first day of school!
Yesterday DH gave me a day off. He took DS around to his various activities - soccer, gym, and such. I hung out in the basement with my good friends, Pandora and Amazon Instant Video, and got a few things tidied up. First was the flying geese for the Star Surround QAL.
Then I got started on the Easy Street star blocks. The pattern calls for 9 and I had 2 together, after a bit of ripping last week. Each block has 25 components - that's a lot of seams and a lot of pressing between seams!
And since I'm not the speediest sewer in the stable, it took most of the afternoon, with a few breaks, to get 4 more completed. Three more to go.
There has been a most welcome stash enhancement. I won a "tassle" of strips from Pat Sloan's newest line, "Bobbins and Bits." Pat sent almost 2 yards worth of strips varying from approximately 1.5" to 6" in width.
There are prints and batiks - yeah!
