Week #5 Stash Report

This has been a busy weekend, however I have only 1 item finished....the baby Saints quilt my sister and I teamed up to make (pictured on yesterday's post). I waited late to post in hopes of finishing the quilting on the string quilt - no luck. I tend to become side tracked with those things like washing and folding clothes, vacuuming, dusting. Oh well.

Used (finished) this week: (5.00) yards
Used year to date: (53.25)
Added this week: -0-
Added year to date: 38.80
Net year to date: (14.45)

Next weekend is the Super Bowl AND the first Mardi Gras parades. I have never seen Mardi Gras decorations in Black and Gold. When the Saints WIN the Super Bowl, Mardi Gras will end up being twice the celebration. I have a niece and nephew who both in Mardi Gras next week I will bring pictures. I had hoped to also finish quilting Bonnie Hunter's Christmas/Mardi Gras top in time ... but no problem ... Mardi Gras colors never go out of season here.

That's going to be an exciting weekend in Nawlins for sure! Will be rooting for the Saints with you, and wishing I were at Mardi Gras!

My husband is a reserve deputy in Lafayette parish and we contemplated coming down for Mardi Gras (we are currently in TN due to military PCS) to enjoy the festivities with friends and let him get his required time in but scheduling conflicts presented it. Now, I'm VERY glad he won't have to deal with the happy or sad crowds. Still, we are rooting for Brees and the Saints!
