Sunday Stashbusting Report!

Well I've been quite the stashbuster the last couple weeks. I finished all of my Christmas gifts (on time) without buying any quilting cottons (I did have to buy some polar fleece to make scarves but I don't count that because it wasn't adding anything to the quilty stash). Here's what I've accomplished:

  • Finished 2 bucket totes (used 4 yards of stash)

  • Finished a fabric wallet (used 1/2 a yard and some scraps)

  • Finished a scoop purse (used a yard of stash)

  • Finished step 2 of the mystery on quiltville (used approx. 1 yard of stash)

  • Cut out a mystery that will begin on New Year's Eve (cut approx 6 yards of stash)

  • Bought no quilty fabrics!

Here are my goals for the coming week:

  • Finish steps 3 & 4 of the quiltville mystery

  • Finsh the NYE mystery top

  • Finish my addition to 2 round robins

  • Avoid buying fabric

Here are pictures of step 2 of the quiltville mystery as well as the fabrics I chose for the NYE mystery.




















And a gratuitous picture of 2 of my kitty cats. Here is Anabelle snoozing with her arm around her mother, Sneak.

Very pretty 9 patches for Quiltville mystery!
What is the NYE mystery fabric for?
Is it the Planet Patchwork one or am I missing out on another mystery?
