It's been a dreary weekend so far, cold and cloudy. But at least there hasn't been any rain since early yesterday morning. It's the kind of weather where you want to just stay snuggled under the covers or curled up on the couch with a good book. I did sleep in for a few hours yesterday, but only managed an extra hour this morning. I stayed up late last night putting the final stitches on the binding for Flame Test (previously know as the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler). I'm hoping to get some pictures of the finished quilt today. It's supposed to be cloudy all day so that may not happen. I forgot to snap a shot of the slow stitching on the binding, but did get picture of the label being sewn in place.
The hand stitching took a couple of days, so there wasn't much progress on my other projects. Most of the outgoing on the stash report is the binding and framing strips for the label.
Used last week: 0.69 yards
Used in May: 2.47 yards
Used year to date: 15.12 yards
Purchased year to date: 0 yards
So still more out than in so far this year. I'm doing well on keeping the incoming way down, but I would like to up the outgoing a bit. Hopefully I'll be making a backing for Grand Illusion next month and that will give a nice boost to the outgoing numbers.
I'm going to grab a second cup of coffee then check out all the stash reports over at Patchwork Times and the slow stitching going on over at Kathy's Quilts.
