Stash Report 11/21/2010

Family weekends are great! My niece Kristy, her husband and four girls came in from Texas. Along with my sister's grandchildren, we had all seven little kids running around while we sewed. Our goal, Kristy wants to sew! She left this afternoon with a sewing machine (her great grandmother's Singer we bought in 2001), ruler, fabric, rotary cutter, thread and lots of other goodies we set her up with. We had lessons in threading the machine, filling bobbins, rotary cutting and making Pillowcases -- the perfect project for simple sewing.

Didn't hurt the stash report at all:

Finished (out) this week, (5.6) yards
Finished year to date, (369.85)
Purchased this week, 1 yard
Purchased year to date, 277.90
Net Busted, (92.95)

How nice to get your niece started sewing!

Pillowcases are a great way to start!

That sounds like a very fun time. Pillowcases are a great way to introduce beginners to sewing. So great to get someone addicted.
