Sunday Stash Report, December 11, 2011

Tick tock just two weeks till Christmas...are you ready?  I'm still getting there.  Today the big tree went up along with a couple of smaller ones and all the seasonal quilts I had wall space to hang them.  Two are draped over furniture and one is saved for my office.  I'll be baking today...the house is going to smell some kind of good by 10am!

Part 2 trimming up with the Bloc Loc ruler

Part 4 trimming up

Part 4 cut horizontally in half and trimmed
 I've been moving right along on Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Orca Bay.  I'll be calling my quilt Kordova Klosure; appropriate for a sunset at the harbor Orca Bay touches (both of course normally with "Cs" rather than "Ks").  Part 3 is in the iron and trim stage at the moment.  There are 350 of these HSTs to trim up!  I'm using my Bloc Loc 2.5" square for this step.  If you don't have one of these rulers--get one!.  Part 4 is all sewn and in the iron, cut horizontally in half, and trim stage.  I've got lots of clean up ahead of me.  It sure was nice to finally use the reds.  Indeed the blacks and whites will sure make this a spectacular project, but the reds are much more fun to work with (wink)!

Not anything to report used or purchased.  Bonnie mentions that we will either have eight or nine total steps for the Mystery so looks like there won't be much to report in the used category for awhile.  Well maybe I can squeak something in; sure was hoping to have a net of 150 yards.

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 235.25 yards
Purchased this week: 0 yards
Purchased YTD: 111.75 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2011: 123.5 yards

Everywhere I go I see red strings - the mystery sure is coming along and I think four steps to go. Happy sewing. Judy C

Congrats on getting those stringy HSTs done. Mine are all stitched, but I've yet to trim or remove papers :)

Looks like you are moving right along with the mystery project. Hope your Christmas preparations are on track.

I've read about the Bloc Loc rulers and I do think I want one.
