Earlier this week I showed these two quilts with binding ready to be sewn down.

Here they are with binding in place and ready for hand stitching.  I will be taking in my sewing machine for servicing while on vacation.  Today is the day it goes to Paradise Sewing for its spa treatment =^.^=  It should be running smoothly after all the attention it will receive!  I will be ready for sewing when I return.

Two days and counting!  My boys are going to miss me while I am away...

Kloggs so far.  There is still much more to cut for this king sized project!

It needs a little green...

and some warm colors...

there is a bunch of blue already cut, but I found another to add in.

Like most projects there is always a place for neutrals.  Hope to get to cutting these fabrics tonight.  Only a few more evenings until it will be time to pack!

What's going on in your sewing room?  See more through the links today at Patchwork Times.  Enjoy your week.


Sunday Stash Report, August 21, 2016


The quilts that are back from Kerry.  These are the first to have the binding stitched in place ready for hand sewing.  Aren't they going to put a smile on a child's face.  Project Linus is the destination for these.  The one on the right is glow in the dark fabric.  How fun will that be for a child as he falls off into dreamland.  Mom put these together when she was at the quilting retreat we attend in May.

These two are waiting for their turn.  The top one will be a donation to the Veterans Home.  Not sure what will happen with the red and white quilt.  Kerry has another four to finish.  It is possible to get them before my trip.  The plane takes off on Thursday with me aboard!
