Santa was very good to me. Then I was very bad. Here is a shot of my Christmas loot. Also in the background are the gingerbread houses my kids put together yesterday evening. They had a blast.

I had 4 jelly rolls come in plus a small fat quarter pack. I also bought backing fabric for my Wild Thing quilt which I managed to get on the quilt frame but I wasn't able to quilt it because I did not have the right color of thread. So all in all it was 22 yards.

Before Christmas I finished one quilt for hire, one minkee throw for my MIL and one fleece throw for my DIL. Too bad none of that counts. I did manage to get the applique done on the basket blocks then get the center of the quilt sewn together.

I have been working on the borders but had to stop and iron a bunch of leaves. I still have a bunch of leaves to go but progress is being made. I am able to do some of the applique in the border but I will have to attach the border before I can finish all the applique. That will be a pain.

I did not meet my goal of breaking even. I am glad the quilt police will not come and take me away. Although DH may take away my Visa. I am waffling as to whether I will do the stash report next year. I will probably keep track of what fabric comes in and goes out but I just won't tell. How about you? What are you doing?


  1. You did good this year - sometimes I wonder if gifts should be included, but down the road, we would want to claim those yards as being used!

    I'll be continuing with the stashbusting and reporting - somehow, it just helps in stash management. And, there is nothing wrong with stash enhancement & management.;-)

  2. I love stash reports! The numbers are interesting to see my patterns of buying--but I'm not worried about the numbers. (yes, stash *won* this year!) DH is not taking away my Visa, as I found some large pieces of equipment he's bought that were never mentioned. Wish he'd take up golf.
