Stash Report 7/3/11

Well, it's way hot today also.  The high was 106.3   My DH put our portable AC in the living room together so it has kept the air around 82 so far.  I will gradually move a sewing station into it so that I can do some quilting in the coolest place in the house.  They're saying it will be in the mid 90s tomorrow.  I hope so.
Praying for rain for Texas or a vacuum to suck up the water in Missouri and drop it gently on the states still affected by drought.  Lord, hear our prayer!

Didn't use up much fabric - a total of 1/2 yard of 3 fabrics to start my practice piece when Judy Laquidara teaches us how to quilt feathers.  This has a lot of seams.  How do you handle units where flying geese meet a seam right at the middle where they are the thickest?  I thought I'd be smart and instead of having all those seams make flying geese to take out some seams from the pattern, but made thicker seams that way.  Help.  Your suggestions eagerly awaited.

For now since I've cut the pieces I'm turning over the rows and ironing the seams so that they nestle.

Since I only worked on my June UFO which didn't require more fabric, here are my numbers:
Used this week: .50 yards

Used/Donated Yr to date: 42.83 yards
Added this wk: 0.0 yards
Total Yr to date Added: -4.0 yards
-------------------------------------------
Total Yr to date Use: 38.83 yards

How did you do this week?  Go on over to Judy Laquidara's Patchwork Times on my left sidebar and see how others are doing.

  1. LOLLLLLLLLL....you are too funny. I'm sure Mississippi would be more than happy to share their water. I think we got 10 drops of rain today and a little thunder. There were a couple of showers popping up and there, but they missed us.

    I can't believe the heat you are getting. It's 90 right now and is suppose to be 98 tomorrow.

    Here's wishing you cool breezes.
