Stash Report, Sorting The Sock Drawer Edition

I made some progress on the stash this week. A tiny bit out, but at least it was out!

Added this year to date: 47.28 m
Net Stash Busted in 2010: 7.36m

Despite having signed up for Jacquie's Spring to Finish Challenge 2010, I managed to find another project to work on instead of one of the 5 I registered - the quilter's equivalent of organizing the sock drawer during exams. I have a sneaking suspicion it's because I'm feeling somewhat stumped on the Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt's quilting. That's a separate post in itself. Stay tuned.

Anywaaaaaay, that "other project" is this trio of pillows made from stash fabric, and stuffed with leftover batting trimmings - the stuff I cut off after quilting and before binding. I've been dutifully saving those scraps for a while now, and I'm happy to say that my collection was enough to thoroughly stuff 3 good-sized pillows. A colleague volunteers with the SPCA, and they use the pillows to make the crates a little more comfy for the cats and dogs.

Here are a couple of photos of my little monkey helping me with stuffing the pillows - we had a ball!


  1. Out is out - no matter how much or little. And what better project than pillos to keep little monkeys occupied... Have a great week!

  2. Are you really wearing a Jam t-shirt? I'm sooo jealous...eBay here I come! PS. I'll give you $50 to get your hair cut in steps again!


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
