Quilting

Stash Report

Can’t believe a week has gone by since I was last on here!  I haven’t even READ any blogs in the last week!  Must spend some time catching up.

This week started off with a bang! :)) Glory and I went north to a quilt shop that had recently changed locations.  Before shopping we stopped at Red Robin for lunch, yummmmm!  Then on to the quilt shop!  I picked up The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt, by Laurie Aaron Hird, can’t wait to get started on it!
And…3 3/4 yards of fabric, already used some of it tho…  They had one of the “no photo” policies, next time I think I’ll explain more clearly WHY and HOW the photos would be used, I mean who doesn’t want FREE advertising???  BUT I was just a little sneeky and got this quick one of the floor! Lol

Had to act like I was checking a text, and a lady that worked there even came and looked over my shoulder for a second! Lol
Anyway, we had a great time, and even stopped at a second Red Robin for milkshakes on the way home!
Got my second block done for my Stash Buster quilt, so that would make two so far…
and
For the rest of the week, I made one little dress, two pairs of little pants, and a TON of monogramming!
On to the stash report…

On to another busy week!  My aunt from Orlando arrives on Tuesday, she has a job interview on Wednesday at noon, so everybody say a prayer!  We would so love to have her here!
Blessings to you all, jan

Stash Busters!

This morning, before anything else, I met with my good friend…coffee.

This is my new mug.  I have two others I had been using, but my aunt(a nurse practioner) told me if the finish on the inside of your cup starts to wear away, and you see black, it’s time for a new one!  so this is my choice.  Yeppers, it’s from a set that belonged to my mom.<3
Remember the magazine I bought last week, well, the first block is completed!
 
I’m happy with it, most of the points came out ok.  My new favorite quote is, “If it’s still ugly, you didn’t cut it small enough!”  I have no idea who came up with that one, but it’s great!  The goal is to only cut one 1 1/2 inch strip from each fabric in my stash for this quilt.  You may see a fabric in more than one block, but can’t be more than one strip.  I think it calls for 140 strips, or 5.8 yards…? Think I can make it ,  uhmmmm….sadly(or gladly?), yeah I think I can.  Lol!!
Basketball started this week, that means cathedral windows came out of hiding.  Wonder how much will get done this year?  More to come on that one. 
Do you have pet progect that only comes out at certain times of the year?
