     I had three days off this week and spent it doing lesson plans, making 3 pinwheel churn dash blocks, and 12 of my favorite scrap block. These activities do not lend themselves to stash reduction at this time. Later the Churn Dash blocks will become a charity quilt and the scrappy blocks will be pieced into a top. My plan is to have one done for each of my grandchildren when I pass. I have 19 grandchildren and only 2 tops made so I can't leave for a while!

     Saturday I went to my job at the LQS and while there picked up the backing for MES's string quilt - a hot pink minky. The top and minky were left for Belinda to work her quilting magic on. I did not count it since it hasn't left the shop yet. It will be a wash when the quilting is done. 
     Since my DGD, Sammie, and my DD#2, Tanya, requested "receiving blankets like you made me" and Spring is on its way, I picked up 1 1/2 yards of polished cotton and 1 1/2 yards of sear sucker to make a reversible receiving blanket.
     Most of my purchases have been "PINK", but until Saturday, I had managed to stay away from soft pink! I surely hope that Sammie's soft pink urges quit when MES is born. LOL!
Lator Gators! I am off to make receiving blankets and do lesson plans. Keep making lemonade from life's lemons.

  2. This is the third try at posting. I amm a klutz tonight! Sometimes it is hard to find time off to work on quilting!
