Happy Saint Patrick’s Day. And Happy Birthday to my Dad, who’s 88 today!
I’ve been watching Tales of Irish Castles on Netflix, so I am dreaming of Ireland.
Last Week: 58,409 yards/308 skeins
Knitted: 89 yards/1 skein
Purchased: 0 yards/0 skein
Ending Stash: 58,320 yards/307 skeins
Spending YTD: $204.32
Fabric In: 5.65 yards
Fabric Out: .98 yards
Net Fabric: +4.67 yards
Fabric YTD: +29.20 yards
Spending YTD: $374.60
In: FQs and remnants from guild meeting. 2.15 yds for $6.50? I’m game! FQs, F8ths, and a ruler stand purchased at a local Quilt Show.
Out: Afghan Square, April BOM, binding for Kidney Beans flimsy cut, blocks cut for Spring Fling(a DrEAMi* I just had to start), and yarn for a Pacer’s hat.
FOs: Maybe a Re-FO? Quilting added to a top I made last year, Irish Eyes just needed more. And I guess the hat really is a FO, but it doesn’t count for yarn out because it wasn’t my yarn. Yes, I knit it, but it didn’t reduce the stash numbers, so it’s just a FO.
No, I didn’t stitch 100%%, just 100% LOL

I would be disappointed with my progress this week.
I did work on deep cleaning the house and some gardening, though!
You’ve had a lot on your plate recently! And those items you got to were important. I don’t think I have EVER deep cleaned my house. LOL! As it’s only 2 years old, I hope it doesn’t need that much cleaning yet. > >
Love Irish Eyes!
Thanks! Me too. The designer has a larger version of the quilt in print now. It is stunning in batiks. http://www.inquiringquilter.com/questions/2019/02/18/my-new-pattern-for-island-batik > >
Happy St Patrick’s Day to you!

happy birthday to your dad!!! Bummer your hat doesn’t count for yarn out, still a finished project is something to be celebrated!!
Thanks. I called to sing him Happy Birthday and told him he was my favorite oldest dad. He always tells me I am his favorite youngest daughter, because I am his only “youngest” daughter. My sister is the favorite oldest daughter. LOL! > >
Very striking quilt. I don’t think I have seen that design. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!
Thanks, it was designed by Jennifer at Inquiring Quilter. > >
Love your Irish Eyes! Great pattern for St. Patrick’s Day 🙂
Thank you. It will hang in my hall every March from now on! > >
Congrats on another successful week of stitching. All your stats look good. Hope you have another successful week of stitching/knitting. Thanks for linking up with the 15 Minutes to Stitch.
