Net Stash Reduction Goal for 2008 – 150 yards
Net Used to Date – 26 yards
Net Yards To Go – 124 yards
I’m going to keep my stash totals at the top of all my posts til I reach my goal. I sometimes play little competition games with myself. I was thinking about making a deal with me that in 2009, I can buy half as much fabric as my 2008 net use. That means if I do use 150 yards in 2008, I can buy only 75 yards in 2009. I haven’t committed to that idea yet . . just thinking about it.
Chad had a cold and I now have it. I don’t usually catch things but I feel pretty bad with this. At least I’ll get it over with (hopefully) before I leave for Paducah so I’ll feel all good and energetic while there. Signing all those credit card tickets takes a lot of stamina!
Our guild sends quilts to some of the National Guard troops who go somewhere. Oh, goodness . . I shouldn’t even mention something when I don’t know all the details. I don’t know if it’s just local men or women or if it’s all the men and women sent from Camp Clark. Well, I do know the important stuff. The guild needs quilts and they need to be somewhere between 50″ x 60″ and 60″ x 70″. I have a ton of quilts here at the almost finished stage but just a few of them really fit into that size range. Here’s one I came up with and I’m starting to work on this afternoon. I’m also going to put the little partial quarter square triangles at the end of the darker rows of sashing but I was too lazy to draw those in.
When I first switched over to WordPress, I never could get the settings to where the comments would be mailed to me. I asked for help and tried everything I was told but nothing worked. I gave up on responding to all the comments so you probably all thought I was rude! But, over the weekend, I upgraded WordPress (still not to the most recent version) and was very happy when the first comment showed up in my e-mail account. Little things like that just make me so happy!
I’m off to start on the new quilt and use up some yardage! 🙂
