It seems I am not getting anywhere on my stash busting but am sewing alot!  Working on magazine blocks, Bonnie's Celtic Solstice, JUQ Mystery and cutting projects for this coming weekend's Retreat. I am so looking forward to getting away, massages, challenge project, food wine and a quilt store is even coming to us. 
Second "kit" almost finished cutting, just the background to do. Hummingbird by Darlene Zimmerman.
We lost our LQS about 3 years ago and the nearest is about 40 miles, so it is always a planned trip. The area where we are going has also lost 2 shops in the last year so this will be our only shot at fabric/supplies shopping for the weekend. I do shopping online now and never thought I would do it that way. I love to touch the fabric and have it talk to me!

It was a fun week though, I got this: Best darn Bloody Mary mix I have tasted.
and this: a reproduction of a game I had as a kid, my sisters and I played constantly. I have never told them but I used to rig it so I never got the "dud" for a date. Pays to be the older sister. 
And this: I have been wanting this for along time and am loving it. Just started working with it and will take awhile to really produce something. Oh my, the possibilities! Thanks DH, you are the best! Oh yeah, he also got me a subscription to my favorite magazine "Quiltmaker". Talk about enabling but serioulsy he is the best for his support of this obsession.
In case you were wondering why I got all of this (and more) in one week, it was my birthday! I have the best family and friends, seriously...

I thought I should also take a hand project with me for the weekend so I started cutting my wool kit.
It never crossed my mind when I picked it about how many pieces I would have to cut for the hydrangea petals and they are small. Mission accomplished.

Don't stop here, go check out what others are doing to Stash Bust at Patchwork Times.

"Traveling Stash Box Winner"
And last, but by no means least, the (by the flip of the coin) Winner is: Denise
The Traveling Stash Box has left the building and it is going to Denise of Count it*all* Joy, I hope you enjoy it and keep it traveling safely.

As Always,



  1. Have a great time at your retreat. Nothing better than quilting with friends. Having a quilt shop on site is an added bonus.

  2. Happy belated birthday! :)

  3. I just installed EQ7 on my laptop last night and have yet to figure it out. Maybe today, I'll play around a little more and see what I can create.

  4. What a fun week, indeed! Just think, when you can count all that fabric you cut and sewed this week, it will be a big amount out! You cut all those petals by hand? Ugh!

  5. Have fun with all your new goodies!
