Hooray!  I have finished several things just in time to count them for the end-of-the year report!

We had the annual Christmas fair at school, and I made bags again — this time in several sizes.  The small gift bags were the best sellers, especially the ones sized to hold DVDs and CDs.

I also made the usual grocery-shopping sized bags in bright fabrics.    Here is my table in the corner of the school hall.  A coat rack makes a great display for hanging bags!

I made this green String Quilt top for a friend and have already pieced the backing.  Now it just needs quilting and binding.

And best of all, I finished the purple and green Puss in the Corner quilt in time to give it as a gift on Christmas Eve.   It has gone to our older daughter’s long-time boyfriend, who admired the colours when I first started working on it, many months ago.   He was really pleased to have it.  🙂

The full-length picture turned out a bit dark, but here’s one during the quilting that shows the true colours better:

I quilted this project using a Continuous Curve motif designed by Carla Barrett.  Then I went back and stitched a quarter inch inside the edge of each large centre patch.  The backing was pieced using large left-over pieces of green and purple fabrics.

All that activity brings me back into positive numbers!  Here are my totals:

Bought this report:  0
Total fabric in this year:  54 yards
Used this report:  32 yards
Total used this year:  76 yards
Total (net):  22 yards

Thank you, Judy Laquidara, for hosting the Stash Report.  I would like to continue participating in 2011 and hope to be more regular in my reporting.  🙂

Happy New Year, everyone, and Happy Quilting!
