Thank goodness we've made it to the middle of the week.  All down hill from here and I certainly hope it comes quick...  Monday is Memorial Day; a holiday day for me.  With Friday of that week an off Friday...  A very short week with many taking PTO.  Next week should be an easy week.

So I wanted to take time to gather all the swaps to show what lovely blocks the Aqua/Blue Swap brought each of the participants.  I will be getting Mary's in the mail before the week is out.  Everyone else will get their portion of the swap when next I see them.

As you can see there is a lot of variety...the goal has been met!  I will be sort through these tonight.

I am working away on Kanton Kull.  This is Chapter 9 in work.  The Nine-Patch Border was this round along with stitching more of the Shoo-Fly Blocks, Large Triangle Sawtooth Border, and Friend Star Border units.

Until next time...happy sewing.

Chapter 8 is nearly complete.  I have the dark red 2" solid border to stitch yet.

This chapter had me stitching all of the Four-Patch Border units together.  It is the ones on the top left.  Also put together more of the unis for the Large Triangle Sawtooth Border...with many still yet to go in chapters to come yet.  Finally the first time touching Ohio Star block.  These first units are for the Odds & Ends units.

Above is Debra's blocks.  Good to get more on the light side of the aqua and blue.  Without a lot of checking I have only noticed a couple of fabrics repeated between the participants.

These are from Debbie.  Her DH was nice enough to get them to me on the due date.  Debbie's have a great batik in the strips in my opinion!

Hoping the rest of your week is perfect =^.^=

Sunday Stash Report, May 21, 2017


Today I am working on Chapter 8.  There is a lot of sewing in this chapter of Pam Buda's A Prairie Gathering.  For those new here my project is called Kanton Kull.  The Checkerboard Border was the first to finish.  This photo has the two sides and the top and bottom units sewn together, but not yet attached.  I need to iron first.  It is measuring up just fine with the rest of the project YIPPEE!

Next to sew were all the Four-Patch Border pieces.  The units on the left are the corners.  Next for these is a press and trim.

The Large Triangle Sawtooth Border units are next in line and then the beginning of stitches on the Ohio Star Border.  I will be working on this chapter probably through the beginning of the week.



Both Teresa and Jennifer had their swap blocks to me this weekend.  Jennifer tucked in her package some thought filled goodies.  The green kitty is for making kitty shaped ice cubes...too funny!  The black kitties are chip closure clips which will definitely be put to use.

Used this week:  0 yards
Used YTD: 52.25 yards
Purchased this week:  0 yards

Nothing changed my fabric stats this past week.  Kanton Kull is coming close to changing my used category...  Join me tomorrow for more on Kanton Kull and the revealing of the last two swappers blocks.
