Celtic Solstice update (stash report week 12)

Now in bloom!
This week was spring break.  We didn't do anything special. Luckily, the weather was nice most days and DS and his friends on our street got to play outside.  However, by Friday, they were so "bored" that they even helped me gather leaves into the tarp and throw them over our back fence into the wooded ravine.  Now, they didn't last long at the task, but that was four loads that I didn't have to do alone!

Friday out temps reached over 72 degrees and it was the only day that I really got to do some outdoor cleaning on both patios.  Prior to that, I was running errands and inside tending to housework - uggh.

However, on Thursday, I'd had enough and escaped to my sewing corner while the boys were at someone else's house.  I just needed to stitch.  I didn't need to think or put on a binding or cut any fabric, I just needed to stitch.  So, out came Clue #4 of Celtic Solstice.

 And all 120 four patches are done.  Geesh, I love strip piecing!  Of course, I now have about 20 or so more 4 patches than I need - lol!

That's it - I haven't shopped or finished another project this week.  So the numbers remain unchanged.

Used this week: 0
Used YTD: 3.77
Added this week: 0
Gifted this week: 0
Added YTD: 30.42
Net used YTD: -26.25

Have a great week!!  Please also check out some more stash reports at Judy's Patchwork Times.


  1. Glad you were able to squeeze in a bit of quilting time this week. It is so wonderful to see flowers popping up, the colors are so refreshing after the harsh winter most of us have seen.

  2. Oh, your flowers look so pretty - ours haven't bloomed here yet, but there are green shoots peeking out of the soil. Looks like your total number may be off... unless there's another 20 yards hiding somewhere :) We are on spring break too - three weeks here due to a year-round school schedule, but I haven't heard one "I'm bored" yet...and hoping I don't!

  3. Your little crocus flowers are a sure sign that Spring is just round the corner. My Celtic Solstice is still in progress too. Haven't gotten the urge to work on it since my other mystery is not finished. Just too many starts and not enough finishes. Maybe when I really retire I'll have more time!! lol


Please leave a message. I love to hear from you.
