Sunday Stash Report, May 11, 2014

Happy Mother's Day!  I hope you have treated your Mom right and for you that are Mom's your children are making a fuss over you.  My brother and sister and I treated our Mom extra special starting on Wednesday and culminating with telephone calls today.  Karen found time on Saturday to take Mom out to lunch and spend some time at a fabric shop.  Wish I could have joined them, but 3,000 miles separate us.  Mike is separated by 850 miles too or he'd have joined us at least for lunch.  Mom knows we think of her always.  She's the best!  Soon she will be here visiting just a few short weeks away now.  I'm pretty anxious for Mom HUGS!

These are my purchases this week.  All five fabrics are 1/4 yard cuts.  Two different projects needed just a bit more to complete them.  The blue is for my May UFO that I'm calling Koliding Krosses.  I am at the point with it where the blocks and rows need to be sewn together.  Perhaps today will see it finish into a top.  It would be nice to finish ahead of schedule.  Like to get the projects with deadlines complete so I don't feel pressured.  The three remaining fabrics are for my turtle wall hanging.  I took a class with Karen Brow yesterday at Paradise Sewing in Poway.  I want to work on this a bit today.  Everyone who took the class will be sharing on Tuesday at Sunshine Quilt Guild meeting.  

Then there's the Whisper Challenge project I'm working on.  And the cutting of Scrap Crystals for an October workshop with Bonnie Hunter adds to the business of my sewing room.  See what others have been doing with their stash through the links at Patchwork Times.  Have a wonderful day!

I'll bet your Mom is looking forward to giving those hugs, Sandi!
I, too, am impressed that you are so forward thinking as to already be preparing for an Oct. class with Bonnie. I hope someday to have the chance to get a class with her, but if it ever happens, I'm pretty sure I will be preparing at the last minute. : )

Glad Betty will be getting out to see you soon. Are you guys doing a quilting retreat?

What a super time Karen and I had. We shared a lot of hugs and kisses. Was so nice. Now I will soon be sharing some more hugs and kisses in the near time frame. Can't wait to be with you.
Holidays are the pits when your children live so far a part. Sure miss those special times.
