Weekly check in

I had some time this afternoon to make this cloth book for my cousin's new grand-daughter. I keep a few cloth book panels in my stash so I can quickly make a baby gift. This panel was purchased at one of the quilt stores we visited while on our way to the Beaver Island Quilt Retreat in September.  I will also be making the baby a pillowcase, as I have done for all the children (up to age 25) in that family. I include a bit of fabric from my grandmother's stash in each pillowcase.

This pillowcase is a Christmas gift. I am fairly certain that the recipient does not read my blog!  She likes horses.

The members of the Elgin Piecemakers were challenged by one of our members to each make a pillowcase for the local homeless shelter for our November meeting. Here is my pillowcase. I am hoping to find a bit of time to make another one before our meeting next week.

The London Friendship Quilter's guild met this past week. I have signed up for a Quilt 'til you Wilt day that has been planned for this coming Saturday. It runs 9am to 9pm and I hope to be very close to finishing off some Christmas gifts by the end of the day. Cathy, Christine and Carol and I will be sewing up a storm!  Tonight, I have some hand-stitching to do on some binding. No pictures yet--sorry.
My stash report for this week is not too bad...
Fabric used in the last week: 6.15 yards   
Total fabric used this year: 193.06  yards
Fabric added to the stash in the last week: 5.25yards (mostly already used up!)
Total fabric added this year: 151.66 yards
Net fabric used this year: 41.4 yards
My husband just made supper and it smells delicious!  Time to go and eat!
