Honey Comes to Visit

No sewing done yesterday, but we did have a very special visitor!  Our Honey came!!!  More pics to come, but for now I’ll say we had a great first day, and look forward to two more. 🙂  How did we start out our visit?  Well, with a trip to Catfish Hole!  How many people drive from Orlando to Alma, Arkansas, for good catfish and hush puppies?  I know two that do!

Stash Report

What a busy week and day!!!  Cousin’s and Sister in Love have been here this week, and we have had fun, Fun, FUN!  They stopped by the house on Wednesday for final measurements for sundresses.  Thursday, they came by and picked up Little Guy could spend the night and play with Nifty.  Friday, Sister and I went and saw “Eat, Pray, Love.”  Left Little Guy again, and brought home the Niceys.  Late night, up till 3!  On top of all that, back to school monogramming started this week!! Backpacks, towels, and lunch bags coming out my ears!  Thank goodness, I need the business!  AND today, Coach and Jewel celebrated 40 years of marriage.  We are so blessed!

Stash Busters

Ok, think of movie theme songs, see if you can guess what I’m thinking…the words go something like this:  When the fabric over flows, and you can’t walk thru the room, who ya gonna call?  Stash Busters!
When all you can say is, “oh, where is that?” Who you gonna call? Stash Busters!

isn’t he a cutie
Lol! Yeah, I know I’m corny, but you gotta give me an A for effort.  Really, my stash makes me incredibly happy.  Just to see it and touch it.  Just last night Bonnie Love said, “Good night, mom.  Have fun ironing.”  Lol! BUT it has gotten out of hand.  I’m so very blessed to have a room in our home, just for my sewing, and I must apologized to my sweet hubby for the mess I have let it become. 
So what do I do?  Bring one more thing home, of course!  I bought this Monday.
 It’s full of great ideas for busting up a stash that’s been sitting for a while.   There are three quilts I want to make for sure in there.  It also featured 4 sewing studios.  I don’t know about you, but I love seeing where other people work!  The front cover also sported the words, “Get Organized!”  Seriously, who could resist? 
I’ve already started cutting strips for the quilt on the cover.
Can you guess what color I started with?  Just now getting to the blues.  Go, me, cutting into that stash an inch and a half at the time!  I know it doesn’t sound like much, but it does make me feel better.  A lot of these fabrics have been inherited, you see, I’ve lost my Mom and Grandma, both in the last two and a half years.  With all I had before, then all of their fabric, well, let’s just say, I’m blessed.  I feel them with me, and know how pleased they would both be to know they are still physically providing for me, even now.  One day I’ll get to tell them thank you, again!! Now that a post that was supposed to be funny, has brought me to tears…I better get to work.  Got some more strips to cut!!
I was just wondering what’s your favorite way to bust up your stash?
Have a great day!!
