Week 19 Status of the Stash

Happy Mother's Day! I was planning to sleep in this morning and spend some leisurely time enjoying my coffee. Instead I was awakened at 5:30 by my cat howling at some animal intruder he thought he could see outside (imaginary?), and by the pounding rain. So I got up and put on that coffee and headed to my sewing room.

This week I bought 2 yards of a perfect coordinating fabric to go with my Saturday Sampler blocks and it is folded in the bottom of that project box so it's there when I need it. I want to start on this month's blocks later today. 

The only finish I had this week was my grandson's quilt which I'll show later in the week. It's grey and raining today so it's not a good photo day.

In this week: 2 yds
In this year: 86.25 yds
Used this week: 4.5 yds
Used this year: 96 yds

Status of the Stash: 9.75 yards ahead of my stash! 

My Sunday morning sewing was spent making 3 more blocks for the friendship exchange (top photo). Only 3 more blocks to go. And I also started putting some of the strips together for another baby quilt (below) needed for a summer gift.  No yardage counted as yet in the "used" column for either of these projects.

The afternoon might be a good time to start adding embellishments to my summer row robin quilt so I can hang it up in the family room to enjoy.
