Although I've quilted 3 of the 10 tops that I'm planning to quilt by August 31, I didn't use any of my stash this week. Two were donation tops with the backing provided and the third was one of my Aunt's and she also sent the backing.
The good news is that I skipped the visit to the quilt shop yesterday and came home early from the HeartStrings Sew-in to pick Chesty up from the hospital so I didn't add any fabric either.
To make life easier over the next 8-10 weeks we purchased another crate for our main living level. This will save me some steps especially when I'm downstairs quilting - I'll only have to go up half the number of stairs.
I appreciate all the comments and emails with concern for Chesty. He's sore but the pain meds seem to be helping and he doesn't seem to mind the crate when he's mellowed out from them.
