The princess quilt is done!  This raced job finishes so cute.  There is one small change in what you see.  The bird at the bottom right was moved down so that it is in the grass better.  I didn't put the project back up on the wall afterward.  Arrangements have been made to pass it to Kerry after the traffic on I52 calms down from rush hour.

Next steps for me are eyes, smile, binding, and label.  I should have Princess Julianna back on Wednesday evening.

Enjoy your week =^.^=

Sunday Stash Report, May 19, 2019

All the little goodies from attendees at the retreat.  We do have a lot of fun figuring out what to gift each other.  Just something small and inexpensive will do.  A few very clever items this year.

This is a photo of some of the ladies sewing away in our room.  I believe this spot was Marilyn's and I'm seated directly in front of her.  You can see the units coming together (yellow, pink, light green) for the princess quilt.  As heads down as I tried to finish Julianna's quilt...it just couldn't be done during the retreat.  I'm going to call in vacation tomorrow to get Princess Julianna done.  Kerry is standing by with an empty long arm table waiting.  We know in advance the quilting pattern and color of thread.  Baring any unforeseen events I will pick up the quilt on Wednesday night for final touches!  Let me say that I don't want another sewing project to sneak up on me anytime soon.  No pictures to share with you yet...

I'm cutting up the pieces for the Princess quilt that is for a 5 year old girl.  Julianna is part of our extended family.  I received the request to make a twin size quilt for her at Christmas time from her Grandmother.  This is the one project that I need to finish this weekend at the retreat.  I'll pass it off to Kerry for the quilting and get it back some time next week for finishing work.  It needs to be in the mail before June.  Why ever do we get ourselves in these predicaments?
