Saturday Mom and I spent the day with Kerry.  It is always fun to get quilts back finished when I visit.  Krystals (Snowy Day by Bev Getschel) and Konstellation and Krown (Star and Crown by Pat Speth) came home with me.  They are both trimmed down, binding is ready for stitching as well as the sleeves.

Today is Mom's fifth day of her three week stay.  Not much change on Kayenne except some "reverse stitching".  I decided against a much lighter background for some of the blocks.  We both continue to get ready for the quilting retreat that starts on Thursday.  A small detour on Wednesday on our way to the retreat hopefully won't leave us without change in our pockets!

It has been a beautiful weather lately; hope that is the case in your area.  See more with Judy's Patchwork Times.

Sunday Stash Report, May 22, 2016

Not much to share today, but a small stash enhancement.  Mom and I have been quite busy getting ready for the retreat that starts this Thursday.  I did purchase a few FQs of white and black for a project I plan on making sometime in the future.  These purchases were made at Memory Lane in El Cajon.  The neutrals on the right were intended for Kayenne, but I decided not to use them.  The plan for Kayenne is to stick with more cream backgrounds throughout.  These were purchased at Paradise Sewing in Poway.

So for this week not much sewing.  See more quilters using their stash through the links at Patchwork Times.
