Sunday Stash Report & UFO Progress

Fabric added this week:  0 yards
Fabric added YTD:  0 yards
Fabric used last two weeks:  1 1/2  yards
Fabric used YTD: 13 1/2 yards

My little sister is getting more interested in sewing, not quilting yet but she was excited about making another tote bag while visiting during the Holidays.  She found a 1 yard piece of fabric she liked and made this bag:
 I'm still working on piecing my NYE mystery blocks, I have 23 done with 19 more to go, I want to make my top 6 x 7 rows.  It's slow going...
Moving on to my UFO #6, Bears in the Farm House.  This is where the 1/2 yard used fabric went, my backing was short so I added two 9" strip to bring it up to the correct size.  It was layered together yesterday during my Saturday morning class:
I plan to start quilting it this morning (after a cup of coffee and a little stash reports reading) and see how far I get before babysitting duty later this evening. If all goes well, it will be ready for binding by next Saturday, fingers crossed.  Speaking of Saturday, my Saturday Morning Quilting group has a field trip to the Road to California show, I'm steeling myself against buying fabric, but I'm seriously considering buying a new sewing machine; it should make for a fun report next week.

Oh, a new machine! That's even better than new fabric...and you don't have to report it, lol.
