Evening Star

Another day, another block with 40 triangles...but this one is a 9-inch block instead of 10.

I spent a lot of time choosing my fabrics (okay 5 minutes), and then I started cutting and sewing...and when I was finished I hated it.  I absolutely hated it.  I couldn't tell you why, but there was just something wrong.  I brought it to my husband and asked him why I didn't like it, and I told him not to tell me to take it apart and redo it.  He took one look at it and said, "Okay, don't, but you need to."  Oh my goodness..not again, two of the green triangle sets were upside down.  Then he says to me, "you sure you are feeling alright?"  :)  I feel fine...but I do need to use my design wall. It is just staring at me, and I need to use it.  Then I could lay my block out before sewing it and make sure the placement is correct.  So, my goal now is to get all the stuff off my design wall that doesn't belong there (pictures, started projects that are never going to happen), you know the drill.  Anyway, this is block 22 of 366, and now that it is put together correctly, I do like it.  

Now for my stash report....which isn't so great.  I added to it.  I made it three weeks without adding to it, and then I had to.  I'm also not counting used fabric until the projects are completed.

Used this week:  0
Used year to date:  0
Added to this week:  11 yards
Added to year to date: 11 yards
Net used for 2012:  0

How's that for buying nothing.  At least I'm honest. :)  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen
