Stash Report, 10/10/10 and Goose Has Left the Pond


My "long arms" are falling off! For over a week now I have been quilting tops.....one of them above. Some time ago, I finished "The Goose Has Left the Pond", designed by Larisa Key. The picture from the sewing machine bed was too dark, so this one shows the amount of piecing involved. My deadline for finishing the quilt is fast approaching, so I must behave and stay focused. I have another top with a pattern to share, however I want to completely finish the quilting and binding before the final pictures are taken.

Stash Report:

Used (finished) this week, (18.5)
Used to date, (351.0)
Purchased this week, 14.5
Purchased Year to Date, 276.90
Net Busted, (74.10) GOAL IS NET BUSTING 100 YARDS --- I REALLY NEED TO GET WITH IT!

I am taking a break and heading over to Judy's Patchwork Times for a "look-see" at other Stash Reports. If the weather continues to dictate how much we finish, many of us are in trouble. For two weeks now, South Louisiana has been gorgeous and I have been heading outside as much as possible!

Your goose quilt is beautiful - and sure has tons of piecing... Real nice colors, too. Good luck in hitting the deadline - and your 100 yard goal. You can do it!!!

Your quilt is so very pretty and you are getting close to 100 yards used! The summery weather is keeping me out of the sewing mode, too.

I love that pattern and the name. When we first got married eleven years ago, my husband would tease me that I knew where all my geese were, had the ponds numbered, and none were allowed to move. Now I tell him I am lucky to know what those geese are doing b/c they have all left the pond. Stay focused!
