Stash Report for this week

All of my quilting time this week has been spent on finishing more blocks for my Joseph's Coat quilt. All of the fabric I used has already been reported. The picture above is a few of my finished blocks laid out to show how they will (eventually) look when they're all joined together.

Due to the sudden arrival of warm weather here, I have been spending much of my time getting lawns done and flowerbeds ready for planting. It's hard to believe that two weeks ago, we had some major snow and now today it is 25C, flowers and trees are blooming! Both of my neighbors are already running their air conditioning units. I've enjoyed sitting outside in the evening this week working on my applique for my Joseph's Coat.

My projects to finish for the PhD Challenge are falling behind. In order to meet the number I committed to, I will need to do at least 2 this month and 2 in June. I'm not sure if that is possible but will hopefully I can find a bit more time now to work on those.

My Pink Lemonade quilt is still hanging on the design wall. How long does it take for a project to switch from being a WIP (Work In Progress) to a PhD (Project half Done) to a UFO (Un-Finished Object)?? Is there a guideline somewhere? I've also fallen behind by two whole blocks on the Hazels Diary Quilt-along. I guess I'd better get off of here and go work on something!

  1. 25c? Wow, here in Windsor ON, it's a lot cooler than that. It's still jacket weather. Actually it was really rainy this past week and today was a little cool. Hopefully, the weather will warm up but there's still rain in the forecast. And your Joseph's Coat is looking beautiful. And no I don't want to start one at this time. Maybe in the fall once I get to see your finished quilt.

  2. Joseph's Coat is looking spectacular - I really like it, just wish that I liked to appliqué . . .

  3. Joseph's Coat is looking great!
    The weather is 25C here too! Time to be outside! Yeah!!!

  4. I do love that Joseph's Coat. Such a lot of work, but it looks like it's worth it.

    I think something becomes a UFO when you've forgotten about it and find it when you're looking for something else (or making your to-do list!).

  5. Hey Edna!
    Your Joseph's Coat blocks are looking great, and I also love the look of your Pink Lemonade blocks! Awesome! 8-)
    I just happen to be making the rounds to the PhD participants this morning... finally! Bit by bit we will conquer them! 8-)
    Happy stitchings!

  6. What beautiful blocks! You're doing Joseph's Coat proud.
