Stash Report - week #10 - 3/6/11

No change from last week on my stash report. I had hoped to get my UFO #1 quilted yesterday (then I could have counted the top and backing) but my dla, Olga, must go to the APQS hospital.
She is a very sick girl. After spending a long time on the phone with a very patient and helpful Dawn in the nursing (service) department, it was decided that the ole girl needed some major tinkering back at the birthing center. This past summer I spent about $500 getting her a spa treatment (overhaul) from a local medicine man but poor Olga didn't feel a whole lot better when she returned. It could be early April before they release her back into my care to fully convalesce. It will be very quiet here without her. We have been BFFs for 10 years.

I made great progress on a new tote for Judy's brown monochromatic challenge, I made 3 mini log cabin blocks so I'd finally have something to report for Jill's Tiny Tuesday and I made lots of four patches for Angela's green Rainbow challenge. But since none of these projects are finished, I don't count them. It certainly is an incentive to get things finished. Hopefully this week. I also plan to trade numbers on my UFO list. I can't work on #1 (it is already a finished top) without Olga so I might as well work on #2 as it needs piecing.

So do you have to send the whole thing to the hospital or do they come and get it or what??? Now you won't be able to get things off your ufo list if what is left means machine quilting.

What are you doing with your nickeles??? There was a quilt shown on one of the blogs where you take 9 charm squares,sew them together as a 9 patch,then cut the block in half both directions then mix up the blocks. I love it!!!

That's a long time to without her!!

I may end up spending a few months away from my longarm later this year but I'm looking forward to using the time to piece or maybe even hand quilt.
