Sunday Report Time

Well, I missed last week completely, so you’d think I’d have something substantial to report this week.  Not really.  I haven’t purchased any fabric, and today I managed to get four more rows pieced for my Eleanor Burns 9P & Stripes quilts.  I was going to sew up a storm today.  But instead, I seem to have managed to just fiddle fart the day away.  I did do some laundry and a wee bit of house work. 

My parents stopped by for a short visit today, on their way home from my brother’s house.  My mother will be the final recipient of my Wild Onion jacket.  She tried it on and it fits her PERFECTLY! No weird poof at the back of the shoulders, as it does on me.  I’m thrilled about that, as I wanted to make her one anyway.  So now I do have to get that binding done.  Then I can add that fabric used to my official tally for the year. 

Judy, I am waiting til I actually finish a project to tally the fabric used.  How does that sound?  And thus far this year, though I’ve pulled quite a bit of fabric from my shelves for the projects I’m working on, I haven’t finished any of them yet.  So my UFO list is growing….lol. To date, I have added 19 yards to the stash.

Weekly weigh in! My starting weight this week was 147.  My weight today was 144!  I lost a total of 3 lbs. this week! Yea! That puts me at a total of 10 lbs.  If I can lose 10 more, I will be so happy!

Finally, the NASCAR race is getting ready to start.  Rain delay…I was afraid they might postpone it til tomorrow, when I will be at work.  But they are about to go green!  TTYL!

  1. I’m so glad your mother likes the jacket! It is just beautiful, and will garner lots of compliments for her (and you, of course!!)

    Congrats on the weight. I’m back at square one, personally. With all the construction, I haven’t been able to get my exercise in– and whaddya know– I’ve gained all the pounds back. Pooh!

    BTW– I get lots of satisfaction when I read your and Vicki’s “stash reports”. Almost like I’ve gotten some of my own stash out. Well, I did say “almost”!
