stashreport week 39

There came some yardage in from Mill house inn and some patterns from miss rosie (schnibbles). Also I made an exchange which used some yardage from my stash. I had hoped to do the bom block and the binding on my snowballs and ninepatches quilt, but I still have to do some quilting on it.

Yes a Finish

I just finished my schnibbles for this month. I just love miss rosies designs so much. Probaly will wokr on 40 T the remainder of this month.
But first I have to go and finish my exchange piece.

stashrepot week 38

Well not a great week at all as I only received stash and didn't bust anything. Astor Manor came in during my vacation and yardage for the somerset charmpacks and saturday BOM block 4 arrived. Hope to make that one today, so that will be a bust for next week and also I have to use some fabbies for the exchange I mentioned in my last post.
If I am a brave girls this week my last order for the year will come in and than only the bom blocks will arrive. Hope I will be a good girl.

Monthly stitching update

This past month I have been stitching again on Little Red riding hood off course, but more about that later in this post. First I want to show a finish. It is spring from Bent Creek. It is for an exchange, but I am almost sure she doesn't read my blog. I loved stitching it very much, because it was nice to do something differest than Little riding hood. It will be finished probaly in a bag.
Than off course you are waiting for the pic of little red riding hood and here it is. 36 pages finished, so only 20 to go (LOL). When I go on like this and don't count that therea few small pages still to do, than it will be finished in 10 months, but when I count the little pages less than I think maybe it can be even finished this year, but that is very wishfull thinking of me. We will see what happens.

working on my schnibbles

Thess past two days I have been working on Winter white (roman white) and I just finished the top. I hoped to quilt it tomorrow and do the binding, but now I have to work due to a sick colleague, so if it will be finished tomorrow I am not sure yet.

Loved doing this pattern very much. Not to much cutting going on.
And a pic of me being very happy to make it to the top of a hill/mountain (200 meters).

stashbusting report week 36

Well a good week as I busted some stash for the year of schnibbles, the pattern this month is winter white and I am using Roman holiday.
Also a package of charmpacks and yardage came in. For Somerset Cottage I already ordered yardage and as soon as the mill house inn yardage comes in I will be ordering that too. And well Astor Manor precuts arrived at the fatquartershop and I just couldn't resist that line when I saw it the first time and reserved already a fqbundle. So well this is not good for the busting, Rouenneries I am still thinking about to buy some charmpacks or not when the line will arrive. Probaly not, as that is not good for the stashbusting at all.

Fabric in week 36: 7.25 meter

Fabrics, lots of fabrics

Today we got to know the first pattern in the year of schnibbles. It is Winter white and I have to say it is one I like very much and as far as I can see not a lot of cutting on it, like you have with some of the other ones. I will be doing it in Roman Holiday as I decided I already had these charmpack in my home the longest and they really needed to be used by now. I have picked some cream background fabric for the flying geese blocks as I think the blue one will not work for that. I think the blue will be the backing for the quilt and the yellow for the outside border.
Today the PO box was filled with my mail. There were charmpacks and yardage from Flourish and charmpacks from Mill house inn and Somerset cottage. Today also ordered some yardage for somerset cottage. Those charmpacks probaly won't be used till next year.
Also got some fabrics in from de stoffenkraam for the future baby of my colleague and a fabric for my niece. These will be cloths this year.
