Sunday Stash Report Week 9 - A finish and an accident!

I got my sewing machine back from repair on Wednesday afternoon, and by that night I was back to sewing.  Of course the highlight of my week was getting my new Featherweight machine, and I hope to try it out soon (as soon as I know it's properly greased!)

My report is positive this week, some fabric out - about a metre of strings and strips given to my friend who decided to start her own Orca Bay quilt and a finish, a play quilt for my granddaughter, which will be completely bound tonight while I watch the Oscars.  And only a quarter metre in, a couple of fat 1/8's for the scrappy bin.

Used this Week: 3 metres
Used year to Date: 33.5 metres
Added this Week: 0.25 metres
Added Year to Date: 14.65 metres
Net Used for 2012: 18.85 metres
Here is the little play quilt for Zoey - I love the bows that can hold those toy clips so her toys can be easily reached.

And here is the full quilt.  My daughter didn't want it too big, so I left off borders. I still feel it's missing something, but she likes it!

It's made in flannel, a panel cut up and minkee on the back.  I did have a little accident - I ran the sewing machine needle through my finger - I haven't done that since I was 18. 

I split the nail but luckily the needle bent (and broke) and it didn't lodge in the bone, like it did the last time I did this.  That required a trip to the hospital and 3 needles of freezing. 

Luckily, I didn't get any blood on Zoey's quilt!


  1. Ouch !!! I bet that was painful - hope it heals quickly. Love the little quilt!

  2. Oh my! hope that finger gets better quickly and that you get to try out your FW soon.
