Sunday Stash Report - Week 49

I am still suffering from a bad cold, but the squadron holiday party is over so maybe now I can recover. I celebrated by finishing the Advent Calendar!
The borders were on for the first day of Advent, and I got it quilted and bound yesterday and this morning. And yeah, I love it. The pockets are the perfect size - Rolos most days, Christmas movies on Saturdays (well, a note to check the DVD player), and Lego mini-figures on Tuesdays.
And the Dude made this! Okay, not completely by himself - he traced, a teacher cut, he sewed, a teacher guided on the curves. And when his teacher was Mom, she tried not to correct his mistakes....too much!
{That's the finished Saturday Sampler behind him.}

On the ins, I won this giveaway at A Quilter's Table. Not only is it a beautiful set of fat quarters - but next year, I'm going to make a Star Wars quilt in solids, so I see some Darth Vader, R2D2 and the Emperor in that pile.
And then there's this! I helped out with the Dude's sewing class yesterday, and my payment was the scraps. Woo!

Used Year to Date: 120.91

  1. Yay for the finished Advent calendar and yay for little one' stocking - very cool! (and yes, your win of those solids was pretty cool too!)

  2. I like that the little dude is sewing - now have you taught him about a needle, thread and buttons? The gals will love him if he knows how to do the basic sewing!

    I have a button tree on my post today - maybe that's something he would like to do?

  3. Hope you feel better soon, colds are definitely no fun at all. Love the Advent calendar, congrats on getting it all finished up. The Dude looks like he knows what he's doing, his stocking looks pretty cool.
