Stash Report week #5

It's hard to believe its already the end of January. Despite it being so cold, there is not alot of snow around. I think my sister in Maryland is getting more than us this year, which is definitely not normal. Oh well it's rather nice to be able to run out to the garage with my flip flops on and not get my toes all snow. DH may be on to something about relocating to a warmer climate. But it's too soon to do that especially with the ages of the youngest grandchildren (4 and 1). I need to be near them at this time in their lives.

As for my stash report,

Used this week: 0 yards
Used Year To date: 2.5 yards

Added This week: 0 yards
Added Year To Date: 10 yards

Net Fabric Gained (Loss or used): 7.5 yards

Alas, despite a finish, I can not add in the amount used since it was sent with the pattern as a BOM. I am sewing, but no finishes to report yet. Here's a peak of what I am currently working on:

No hints, just trying to complete another PIG (project in a grocery sack) while at the same time learn and try another techinque that I've always wanted to do. Hopefully I'll be unveiling what it is shortly.

While trying to find that picture, I stumbled across a photo of something I mentioned I'd post and add at a later time from this post. Well it is the reversible APRON I made for a friend over a year ago but never gave until this past Christmas. I never took a photo of the finished item, but here are the fabrics I used, as well as my drawn illustration of what I embroidered in redwork. The stand for the cake plate I made was the shortest footed markings. With this I also used a soft brown colored pencil for the cake and a red fine tip marker for the scallops on the plate stand. I colored first and then embroidered with DMC 496 if I remember correctly.

Enjoyed a wind ensemble concert yesterday at PSUNY and today family commitments are on my agenda, so I won't be able to sew until later tonight.

Enjoy Life,

Yes ma'am it is cold and snowed about another 4 inches here so going to a warmer climate in the winter for a break sounds sooooo nice but not in the old budget this year. I get out whenever we have sun but it has been scarce over the past month. Sigh, can't wait for sunny weather, not hot just sunny.

Jane, I wasn't sure how to contact you but thank you for your comment on my blog. I am glad you are enjoying my craftiness :-)
I don't have the needlepoint eyeglass any longer but thanks for asking. I love your snowmat candle mat you made from wool. It is so cute!
