Stash Report and More, March 30, 2014

My numbers remain the same as last week. Nothing added and nothing used that I can count.
Fabric Added - 0
Fabric Used - 0
Fabric Added YTD - 2.25 yds
Fabric Used YTD - 9.28 yds
Net used for 2014  - 7.03 yds

However, I did make a little more progress on "Snow Friends". The final rows were added to the top and bottom of the center unit, but the snow people still need their eyes and mouths.  There will be a couple of borders added soon and then this top will be done.

Also, more blocks have been made for "Friendship Jewels".  This is what my graph looked like the first time I posted it

Look at it now!!   This represents 57 finished blocks out of 80.
I'm still digging through my scraps to find the right colors for the missing sections of the blocks.  It hasn't depleted my stash very much, but I'm having fun trying.  I can't wait to start putting the rows together.  I'm anxious to see how this design looks in "real life" fabrics instead of crayola on paper.

We had a QOV sewing day this week and we were treated to a surprise. A presentation of quilts was made to 7 veterans (6 men and 1 woman) representing service in World War II, The Korean War, VietNam and one had just completed his second tour in Afghanistan.

This was such a heart-warming event and a few tears were shed when one veteran spoke about what it meant to him to receive his quilt.  

To see what others have done this week, stop on by Patchwork Times.

  9. Hi Dar--thanks for stopping by to visit my blog. I'm sure you'll find socks addicting, too. And don't delete that email from KnitPicks--you may find the offering is a really good deal! Thanks, too, for your work with Quilts of Valor--my WWII vet father received one in 2012 and it was such a blessing for him receive this honor.
