     Since my last Stash Report, I made 7 purses, 7 lanyards, 4 Tush Cushes, Froggy, Spring/ Christmas bed runner & bound BH Grand Illusions and Garden Maze Flag. But I don't remember what I counted or when, so I started over with what I knew I didn't count.
      I do know that there are over 10 empty comic cards since we started working on quilt show sale items. So my stash is looking leaner!
    I bought 2 yards of a brown floral that I miscut for a customer at J&B. I also bought 2 7/8 yards of a cream blender that I am using for center and corners of Reva Blocks. I now have 31 blocks done which is almost half of what I need to make a King quilt. My July goal was to make 10 but 1 extra just happened to get done.
 Now I am working on my 10 Wild and Goosey blocks. Marie, 16 month old DGGD, came Saturday and helped me sort the scraps. She would throw them all over and then when 1 hit her fancy she would bring it to me to iron.
   Marie also found chalk and redecorated the walls of studio. Good news is that we had planned for that and had a wall with chalk paint ready. She loved it!
   Well, I am off to clean studio, make Wild and Goosey block, clean house, and prepare for church.


  1. A virtual whirlwind you are! Where did you get all that energy? I can't believe Marie is already 16 months!

    I wanted to come to the show.........I am so sorry I missed it! We just didn't hear much about it.

  2. It was packed but with quilters and they don't buy quilted stuff they can make. LOL

  3. Sounds like you have been busy! Your stash numbers are looking great! I hate it that you lost count of where you were. I use a spreadsheet to keep up with mine, even then, I know that I cut things that never make it to the spreadsheet :)

  4. You are one busy lady. I laughed at your Marie decorating the walls of your studio. It was smart to have chalk paint put on them. That is so clever. Your stash numbers are looking good too. I have some of my batiks on comic book boards too, but they actually take up more shelf space than tidy folded stacks. Maybe when I get my stash down to a manageable size, I can use all that I bought. lol
