Stash Report…..week 2

Where has this week gone?  I’ll tell you where!  Well……on second thought, this blog is rated G… :-/ Lol!

Ok, let’s try again.  What has been accomplished this week….that’s better. πŸ˜‰  We started back to school…Joy of Joys!!! Hehehe…  Monday and Tuesday afternoons were spent with a person on my list of favs! My sweet Auntie, she is from Florida, yes, just like my Honey.  My Daddy’s oldest sister, and the person in the world who is most like my Grandma…Love.  We laughed, told stories and cried…all good. πŸ™‚

Wednesday choir practice started back.  Boy, could I tell we had had a few weeks off!!  Pipes were a little rough.

Thursday morning went and had my toes done with Glory and J’s girl.  Hehehe I do have pics of that!  Wanna see?
My wonderful next door(read across the field) neighbor, Glory… She is just as feisty as she is sweet…hope to grow up to be just like her!

 And….guess what I saved this pic under?  Hobbit feet….because that’s what those spacers make your feet look like.  The color?  I did not choose it…I’m more of a pink kinda girl, Glory made me!  Remember, she’s the feisty one. πŸ˜‰

Oh, my goodness!!!! Did I just show you my naked feet?  I MUST be desperate for material!!!!
ο»ΏThursday night we had three basketball games….
Friday was a goodbye to a Dear Man, Dr. Calvin Bradford.  You will be missed, your boys did a great job! 
Saturday morning I met with a new client, a new interior decorator, Julie of Decor Flare.  It was a great meeting and I got to say the words, “You better just order a whole bolt.”  Woooooooohoooooooo!!!!! DO YOU KNOW HOW GOOD THAT FELT?!?!?!?  Then I was on my way to 7, yes, I said SEVEN, hours of basketball…..the good news? We won!!  The bad news….no sewing.  Although I did get some monogramming done.  Does that count?
So, after ALL my EXCUSES…..my stash report….Let’s just keep it simple…
ο»ΏNothing In…Nothing out!
(but quite a bit has been ordered…hehehe)

Until next week….oh, it may be bad…  :-/

Stash Report (here we goooo…….)

New years resolution number 102 – use up some of this fabric!  πŸ˜‰

Who of us doesn’t say this….EVERY YEAR!! Hehehe….

Last year I joined in mid-year, and in my perfectionism was conflicted.  The conflict?  Well, I use my stash for more that quilting, and, on a good day….it even brings me a little $$. πŸ™‚   I think I’m past that though.  Quilters are some of the nicest people I know, and even if my purposes are a little different than yours…I’m praying you will just take me as I am.

This is some of my stash….

I’ve got the flatfolds…
And sometimes I get busy(did I say “sometimes” Lol!) and things get messy….and uhmmmmm stay that way…hence, have you EVER seen a full picture of my sewing room.  Nope, and you probably won’t. πŸ˜‰
And there are containers…that look like this after a mad search.  When I’ve been whispering under my breath, saying, “It’s in here, I know it’s here, where can it be….” Sound familiar?

And then  there are the bolts…yes, bolts.  Some of them are near full.  Oh, my.  Well…I got a “deal.”  How could I resist?

There’s more, but I’ll spare you.  Yes, I know you’re grateful. Lol…..

Brown Baggin’ It….(almost done;) )

Here we go…..one…more…time.   Hate to tell you, but it won’t be the last.  πŸ˜‰  The back of my Brown Bag quilt is done!  But……I don’t have a picture of it, completed.  I will show you what I do have pictures of. πŸ™‚

I saved this as blue and green make neutral. πŸ˜‰  See I found some black with leaves(the pic refused to upload :-/ ), and saved it as “closebutno”, you understand. So to make my back the size it needed to be, I simply added this allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the way around.  It’s not too bad, if I do say  so myself.

 This is what  it looked like before I added the “blueandgreenmakeneutral.” 

 And….if it’s not lying perfectly flat, *ahem-clears throat*, it must be because my youngest, decided it was a great spot to take a rest. πŸ˜‰  She would be the reason I HAVE to use a cutting table.  Like her momma, she loves fabric, in fact, it must call to her, as it does me, because if a piece is spread out or put down, she is gonna be on it! :0)  Her name is Ella, and she is my cuddle buddy, nap partner and co-fabric hound.  Hehehe
