Sunday Stash Report

One small finish this week, one of the Tree Table Runners. I am still working on sewing the other 4 together, in between quilting the Tree Wall hangings. Three are done with two more to go. I did not get to putting the borders on my Under the influence quilt- so no finish there yet.

It will be a short week here in Scottsdale as I am off to San Diego on Wednesday to see family and friends. Looking forward to my trip, but probably won't get too much sewing done.

Updated Report:

Used this week:  3 yards.
Used YTD:  116.5 yards.
Purchased this week:  0 yards
Purchased YTD: 75.5 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 42.0 yards.

Have a great week!

A walk up Pinnacle Peak

Image result for pinnacle peak

We live close to Pinnacle Peak and can see it from our front yard. This is a well know landmark in the Scottsdale area and is a park with a challenging hike. DH and I decided to hike it today and made it all the way to the end and back- about a 4 mile hike with  a lot of ups and downs.

At the top.

View of Valley
The Peak.

With all the ups and downs of the trail, think stair master, we were pretty tired after this hike. But it was worth it for the great views that you get on all sides of the peak.

Design Wall Monday

Nothing on the design wall this week, but pieces are cut out to make 4 more of the tree table runners. These will be given as Christmas gifts to some of my family members. 

Hope to have them sewn together this week, but I will also be working on quilting all the Tree wall hangings for Sunshine Quilt Guild. Below are the first two that I will tackle. There are 3 more after these.

Sandi over at Kwiltnkats put them all together from blocks that I won many years ago. They all turned out great and will go into the craft show in December.

Have a great week and happy sewing!

Stash Report

Happy November!!
Hard to believe there are only 58 days left in the year and we will be into the next decade!

Nothing used this week, but a couple of adds to the stash. I needed a couple of fabrics to complete the Christmas tree quilts that Sandi and I are finishing for Sunshine Quilt Guild. Sandi has mailed them to me for quilting, and hope to get them done this week when they arrive. Check out her blog at Kwiltnkats to see what we are working on.

Christmas Fabrics
