Little red riding hood

This month I finished 3 pages. Only 5 more to go. Really hope to have it finished soon, but in the next two months there won't be lots of stitching time, but we will see.
Yesterday I bought myself two new glasses, new sunglasses and new normal glasses. The pair I have now is 7 years old, so it was time for something new. They will arrive probaly in 2 weeks. So in time for my vacation.

stashbusting 18-4-2010

Well it was a good and a bad week, but when it hadn't been such a good week, than the bad part was even worse.
First the good thing. Fabric went out like crazy with borders, backing and binding for turning pink and backing for the round robin quilt. Both backings were pieced form fabric from my stash. I made a ditch is my red fabrics.
Than there came fabric in from Martinique, Cherish Nature and Rural Jardin and also the new mysterie designer bom block. I have to say this bom block isn't my favorite so far.

Fabric in this week: 8.10 meter
Fabric out this week: 7.85 meter

Fabric in 2010: 77.80 meter
Fabric out 2010: 102.65 meter

Fabric busted in 2010: 24.85 meter

Turning Pink

Last night I finished the top from Turning Pink. I loved making this one very much as I just love working with jellyrolls. What will be next?

Turning pink and stash

Margeeth asked for a pic of my stash and off course I am always listening to questions, so here it is. About this first pic. These are the jellyrolls, fq-bundles, charmpacks and layercakes I owe. Behind the fqbundles there is also a jellyroll and you see a bit of fabric from astor manor.With the fqbundles, jellyrolls and layercakes I have already planned which quilts I am making of them.
Layer Cake Gypsy Rose - Ridley
Astor Manor fq bundle - Opening Day
Garden Party bundle- Summer Rental
Roses the noel fq bundle - Summer Wind

Than the next pic is the rest of the stash minus 15 yards black and 15 yards Ivory bella solids who are in front of the closet. The lowest blue box isn't with fabric, but with batting. The rest is sorted on color. And you see a bit of a small green box which is filled with 2.5 inch strips. The highest blue box is filled with fabrics that match the bundles, etc of the other pic.

I also wanted to show you a pic of turning pink as far as I am now.

Next to it is a row of boxes with stitching stuff. And at the other ends there are also two rows of boxes, but than with sewing fabrics for cloths.

stashbusting week 15

I just love stashbusting and I am really seeing my stash go down.

This week some fabric came back in the stash from the carolina christmas mysterie as I didn't like the outcome of the mysterie and because I wasn't that far yet I could stop easily. 3 meter in from the fabric that were leftover.

Than the fabric that went out. First I have busted fabric for the backings and bindings from the schnibbles quilts Sunday Best and Tagalong. I also busted fabric for the binding of the mysteriequilt on the pic. My mother called me wednesday that the quilt was finished. I think I gave it to her in september to quilt it by hand. She loved it very much and asked if she could quilt it. She wanted to finish it before it gets warmer (I said that she also could quilt on it next winter, but she wanted to finish it now) and so she did. So I made the binding and as soon as the quilt it home again I will finish the binding.
I also busted fabric for a new quilt. I started a new one and I call it turning pink. It is done with a Candy Kisses. Already going great with putting it together and hope to have it finished this weekend. I will also need some fabric from my stash, but don't know yet which piece and how big it will be.
Fabric in week 15: 3 meter
Fabric out week 15: 6.20 meter
Fabric in 2010: 69.70 meter
Fabric out 2010: 94.80 meter
Fabric busted: 25.10 meter
I have to say there is an envelope on it's way with fabrics, but I am sure they will get all used this year LOL.

2 finishes

These past days I have been very busy. First I needed to make some kilometers on my bike for training. Since tuesday I already done 45 km. Than I wanted to have the schnibbles I had laying around to be finished. First I started putting together the top from Tagalong, this months schnibble. I have done it in Bar Harbor and I just loved making it. I also learned a lesson, always clean your desktop first before you start to quilt, because maybe you will otherwise end up with a piece of other fabric on the back.
Than I also wanted to finish Sunday Best and so I quilted it to. Yesterday it was binding time and now both of them are finished.
