Sunday Stash Report, Week 25

Not much to report this week, only 1 metre of Jade eyelet I used to make a cute summer dress for the birthday girl (and of course, forgot to take a picture of). At least I'm back in the positive, even if it is only by 4".  I do have lots on the go, but working full-time since I got back and for the next month is really cutting into my play time.  I think I'm going to whip off a couple of simple tops that need to be done for Christmas, just to bump those numbers in the next couple of weeks.

Used this Week:  1 metres
Used year to Date: 46 metres
Added this Week: 0 metres
Added Year to Date: 45.9 metres
Net Used for 2012: 0.1 metres

I can't believe Zoey turned one this week! She is standing by herself for a few seconds, at least as long as she doesn't realize it, then she plunks herself down. I expect she'll start walking in about a month to six weeks.  That will still be faster than her mother, who had crawled at the age of 5 months and liked it so much that she didn't walk until she was 18 months old.  I had never heard of a typical kid who celebrated a one-year anniversary of walking, but my kid did!  One thing about starting so late: she never had a wobbly stage nor fell down and was running within the week.

Zoey had a bit of a fever the day of her birthday party, but she was a little angel. This picture captures her demeanour beautifully, she is demure and dainty, and that pointer finger is very curious!  She touches everything with just her finger, very delicately.  Since starting day care three days a week last month, she is less shy and more outgoing, and loves playing with all the kids. It's especially nice for Alex, because it's the same day care he goes to, and he loves his little cousin so much - and I love it too, because it's right across the road from my home so I get to see my sweethearts when I get home from work or on my day off.

I finally got around to taking a picture of the fabric I bought in Italy.  It's a white and red toile in a traditional pattern.

I'm going to use it to make some pillow shams for my bed, and then feed the scraps into my Scrap-Users system, a la Bonnie Hunter.

I also found this picture on my camera - for more quilt inspiration!  I took this one in the bathroom in Munich airport - I love the colours and the layout, and see this as a fun quilt to do for one of the kidlets.

I might even try my hand at pattern-designing, if I have the time.


  1. Your little Zoey looks like a precious angel. Such a cute picture with her finger posed ever so delicately. I also love your shot in the German bathroom. Good inspiration for a quilt.

  2. Zoey is darling! I love that she uses her pointer so carefully. The bathroom tile is amazing. A quilt like that would be sooo cool.
