Design Wall Monday....

Every Monday Judy over at Patchwork Times does Design Wall Monday.  Well today my design wall is extremely empty!  The cat and 4 patch blocks are leftovers from swaps I did in December.  This week I will have to get busy and make sure there is something up there for next Monday.

2009 Stashbusting Report Week 52

Well I have not busted any staash since my last report.  I did do some sewing, however no stash was busted as it was for swap blocks and I will get back what I used in blocks.  So I guess I can't count that fabric.  Darn! 

So here goes the report:

Fabric added this week 0 yards
Total fabric added this year 80 yards

Fabric used this week 0 yards
Total fabric used this year 73 1/2 yards

Total fabric busted this year -6 1/2 yards

Not bad considering I did add 80 yards this year!  The past day or two I have been going through swap blocks, kits, etc and listing what I have in those realms.  My goal is to get some of this out of here this year!

Sampling of why I've been MIA

I have been busy at the sewing machine making some terrific blocks for a few swaps I'm in.

This one is paper pieced and I love how it turned out!  I can't wait to get my swap blocks back and make this into a top.  Each block will have a different stocking!

I don't want to see another HST for a long time after doing this swap!  OK so I am going overboard by saying that, but at least not for a little while.  These will come back to me in different blues and with different blocks where my block is.  A different take on the bear's claw pattern.  This is gonna be pretty!
