  1. Stashbuster totals for July 14 Gold Medal Winner! A tie! greyhoundgrandma +10 and TexasPurl +10 Silver Medal Winner! darski +2 Holding Steady PBLKNP 0 NO SHOOT THE MOON!!! Great job, all! Enjoy the yarn and keep on hooking!
  2. I’ll be posting the scores around Noon tomorrow. So far, I have 0 for a score, but I may use up a skein this evening. Not sure!
  3. That’s really wonderful! I always get a lot of satisfaction from crafting for charity.
  4. Oh my! Okay, but it’s all worth it! I’ll make a note to do the scores next week...
  5. Yes, it’s going to be ugly sewing together all the pieces, but I love my niece! She’s thrilled I’m going to be making this for her.
  6. Well, I finally counted the Herrschners shipment for the Norwegian Star Afghan: Stashbuster Total: WTD -22 YTD -68
  7. When I get back from our 4th of July shindig I’ll open it up. If I do it now, I’m not going to want to leave the house! 🤣🤣🤣
  8. My Herrschners order has arrived...I suspect I may be shooting the moon this time around!
  9. Oh, my...Shoot the moon for the MONTH! It’s going to be worse next week when my Herrschners order comes in!
  10. I seem to have tons of WIPs, but no movement on stash. The issue is going to get worse, as my niece has requested an afghan for Christmas. Not a great hardship, as I’ve had my eye on a Herrschners afghan kit (Norwegian Star Afghan) for a while now. I send her a picture, and she loved it! I ordered the kit and it’s coming next Thursday, so next week’s totals are probably going to be through the roof! But, in the meantime... Stashbuster Total: WTD +0 YTD -46
  11. Stashbuster totals for June 24 Gold Medal Winner! Inkked0317 +48 Silver Medal Winner! greyhoundgrandma +32 Bronze Medal Winner! pineknott +9 Using up that stash! Darski +4 Holding Steady howieann 0 PBLKNP 0 SHOOT THE MOON!!! TexasPurl -10 Great job, all! Enjoy the yarn and keep on hooking!
  12. I’m a big 0 for this week, as I didn’t buy anything, but didn’t use up anything. I’m still working on my tree skirt. I’m probably going to post the scores in the afternoon.
  13. It was fun! According to my bud who spins, it does take quite a while to get good at it. She assures me that my first attempt itsn’t TOO terrible! LOL... I’d like to try a drop spindle class, to see if that might be any easier for me. At least the drop spindle is cheaper than a spinning wheel. I checked out the wheels on the floor at the store where I took the class, and was aghast to find out the cheapest was $680! I will make a note to do the totals next week!
  14. I just took a wheel spinning class today at Webs! While I really was the worst one in class, creating nothing but one pathetic lumpy skein...it was in fact a skein, so: WTD -2
  15. The Stashbuster Totals for June 10, 2018 Gold Medal Winner! darski +8 Silver Medal Winner! TexasPurl +3 Bronze Medal Winner! greyhoundgrandma +2 Holding Steady! PBLKNP +0 No Shoot the Moon this time!!! Thanks, all!
