Stash Report Sunday 12/1/13

December already?!! How in the world did that happen? The race to get ready for Christmas is now in full gear. Stand back, it could be a bumpy ride!

Last week I decided to try adding a second design wall space in my sewing room. My current design wall is very large, but it is in a hallway, and I have to stand in the bathroom to see it or take photos. There is another wall in the sewing room where I usually have a quilt on display, but I am going to give it a try as a design wall. I had hoped to get either grey or taupe solid flannel to put up there, but couldn't find either of those. I ended up with this taupe with white dots--maybe I can use the dots like grid lines to keep my pieces straight. I bought 6 yards, and used all but .5 yard for the new design wall.

The other fabric used for the week was for my first finished Christmas gift for the year. I am making placemats for several family members, and finished the first set yesterday. That used up 2.25 yards. I better get back to work on the other placemats and get those gifts done!

Used this week:          7.75  yards
Used year to date:     85.5 yards

Added this week:          6.0  yards  
Added year to date:    79.5 yards

Net year to date:   
      6 yards used

  1. Still in the black, so you are doing good. Great new design wall. I'd be completely lost without mine.

  2. Homemade gifts are the best. I need to find a space in my home for a design wall.

  3. congrats on the new design wall! ~Melanie

  4. Now that is a big new design wall, Julie. You're still in the black and that's good.
