Stash Report Week 50

This is it for me for the year. I have two weeks left to bust something ... anything ... but with the holidays, I don't see that happening. I'm not going to give up just yet.

I added another 6.75 yards to a charity box that I still haven't mailed out. It's in the QuiltMobile so it'll be out of here this week. I need to go ahead and send it because it's getting heavier and heavier. LOL

The fabric I ordered last week has arrived. Nature's Chorus. I just love this stuff. There were a couple of other miscellaneous pieces, but the total was 20 yards purchased. I can't wait to start using this fabric. It's for me, for my bed! Gosh, I feel selfish even typing that it's for me, but it is! :)

Today was Day 1 of the 12 Days of Christmas exchange that I joined in an online group. Day 1 was a bag, any kind of bag. Well, here's my bag! It's gorgeous, huge, and has my initials on it. And it's full of the other 11 days' presents!

The small blue ball was a gift in there for Daisy. This little ball talks! No kidding! My secret partner mailed the box to Jane so I wouldn't see from where it came. Jane said when the FedEx guy delivered it, he expressed concern that "something" might be wrong with the package because it was making noise. The ball activates when it's jostled or moved. It talked to Jane in her car, and it talked to me in my car. When I got home with the box Daisy was intrigued by the box. I decided to find the source of the talking for her when I opened the box today. It's so funny watching her with the ball. She nudges it with her nose, and when it starts talking, she backs away from it with her butt in the air. Hilarious! I'm going to have a ton of fun taunting her with that this year!

I've slept so much this weekend that I'm wide awake now at 2:00 a.m. I must head back to bed to see if I can get back on a normal schedule. I need to go into the office for a while today to sort out the pile that I'm sure accumulated on my desk after I left early on Friday.

Year-to-Date Totals:

Busted: 491.25 yards
Purchased: 776.00 yards
Net YTD: <284.75> yards busted

Can you imagine that poor Fed Ex guy? What a fantastic bag! Can't wait to see the rest of your goodies! Hope you feel much better today.

Jean said...

Nice bag, and a fun toy for Daisy. My cats would like that too, I think. Can't wait to see what else is in the bag.

Donna said...

The ball is too funny! Everyone at Fed Ex that moved that box must have been looking around to see who was talking to them.

I would love to see a video of Daisy! And can you imagine the looks on the people at FedEx? Hey, can you blame Judy for some of your buys??

Bon said...

Vicky, are you feeling any better tonight? I sure hope so. Can't wait to see the rest of your haul that is in the bag.
