Thanks to a baby quilt panel and finishing a paper pieced star miniature, I was able to add to my used numbers this week.  I have another baby panel pin basted and plan to quilt it today.

I finished step 4 of Grand Illusion yesterday - my fastest finish yet!  
We are heading north after Christmas.  DS2 and DDIL get the keys to their first house on December 31st.  Since our first grandchild is due in mid-January, we are going to help them get settled quickly.  We plan to clean bathrooms, kitchen and mop and clean the floors, vacuum the rugs on day one.  Then small boxes etc., will be loaded on day two.  I'm hoping that most of the kitchen items will be relocated, just leaving a few for breakfast on moving day.  Day three the truck, along with some volunteer helpers will move all the large items.   After 34 years of military moves, we're well practiced, and usually had our home organized in just a few days.  DDIL says that the most stressful part of this move, will be not helping too much!  She's been told that her job is to direct traffic, and order her helpers around!  We're taking a lounge chair on day one, so she can put her feet up and even take a short nap when necessary.

Check out all the stash reports at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.


  1. You have great numbers for the year. I hope the move goes smooth...and happy holidays!

  2. Oh, I hate moving! You're wonderful to help. Really great numbers for the year. I see your secret is not buying as much as I have.

  3. Great numbers! Moving Is stressful but when done worth the move.

  4. Great stash busting this year! Sounds like you'll have a busy New Year.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
