We've been on vacation the last week and a half. Needless to say, my stitching time has been pretty minimal, however, I got lots of exercise. We choose another part of the Rockies to visit this year, Utah. Salt Lake City has some amazing quilt shops, My Guy let me visit one in exchange for a day hike along one of the canyons near Elaine's Quilt Block. I stocked up on fat quarters for the Rainbow Scrap Challenger Sampler quilt.
Drama Teen found the border fabrics she wanted for the Jigsaw Quilt.
The green will be a narrow inner border and the blue/purple will be the final border. Not sure yet what the binding will be. Scrappy maybe?
So here's the damage to the stash report:
Used last week: 0 yards
Added last week: 8.75 yards
Used in 2014: 9.614 yards
Added in 2014: 266.3 yards
Net Stashed in 2014: 256.69 yards
I'm going to need to do some serious stitching if I want to make a dent in the stash. Guess I best get busy. For more stash reports, check out Patchwork Times. If you want to check out a few vacation photos, read on.
We stayed just northeast of Ogden in a little place called Eden. It definitely lived up to it's name sake.
Late in the week, we made a trek into Wyoming to see Fossil Butte National Monument. Gorgeous countryside of a different sort.
The Great Salt Lake was beautiful in the morning. But Antelope Island was pretty much an inferno by late afternoon. Still it was worth the trip.
Drama Teen decided to try out indoor sky diving.
She's definitely ready to go again. She also braved being seen with the ancient zombie bear at the Natural History Museum.
I have lots of pictures from this trip, but I'll save some for other posts. Now, it's time for me to get back to tackling the vacation laundry. I do hope to get some serious stitching in this afternoon.
