Stash busting Report - woohoo!

Tonight was the best Christmas party of the season - the Scrap Happens party! We had a great time and got a lot of loot! 10 FQs, needles, thread, a cool zipper small bag, a tin, magnet, mug,cooking whisk with kisses!, binding corner tool and then personal gifts too! It was heaven!

I can now tell you what I've been doing to bust stash. I cut 70 pairs of nickel squares for 8 people - mostly beige-ings from my stash. That's 18 1/2 yards!!!

I made a chicken block clock (1 yard) and for my mom a cushion for her walker seat for the dog to sit on and a walker bag to match (2 1/2 yds) For a grand total of ... drum roll here ... 22 yards! Now that was fun!!!!

I had to pack the chicken clock in a pizza box - so I got a second box for a quilted bag. My DH asked what the boxes were for - I said the clock and a quilted bag - and he said, "So you're giving her a watch???"

Now we can relax and enjoy the family Christmas!
