Let me start from the last units finished.  This is Kandiyohi Part 7.  It took previous parts and put them together.  There are 200 of these units!


Kandiyohi Part 6.  Once again a previous unit was assembled to the melon triangle that was cut in this part.

I worked on a birthday project for DH, but can't share it until after he opens his gift.  It is "toast worthy"!


These are trinkets that are often times left at the retreat on each of our sewing areas.  Many creative gals in and attached in some sort of way to our group.  The photo in the frame was last year's retreat group photo.  This item was shared by my Mom for everyone...from the hands of my Sister's scrap booking talent.  I'll be replacing it with this year's group photo that I shared yesterday. 


I also was lucky to win not just one, but two door prizes.  Candi our guild's retreat coordinator always keeps us happy with fun sewing notions and games.  I've always wanted a finger pressing tool and the strip pack will make up into something wonderful.  Until next time =^.^=

Sunday Stash Report, May 20, 2018


There was a bunch of sewing going on during the quilt retreat, but nothing finished.  Of course I did need more fabric when it came to a quilt shop run to Primitive Gatherings.  I also had to have a pattern!

Chrome yellows are hard to find so four FQs of them and the two purples were all that came home with me.  I am working very hard not to purchase since I have so much awesome fabrics in my stash.

Now don't say OH NO Another Crazy Project!  Good Golly! by Susan H. Garman tickled my fancy.  Not sure when this one will start, but Kerry says she'd love to swap units with me.

Bonnie won the seven Candy Cat blocks she's sure to be excited when her project is completed.  Lot's of very wild and crazy cats!

Janet won the Candied Pineapple blocks which there were plenty.  I made four, but by far the one I added sunglasses to was the talk of the blocks turned in.



I'll share progress on Kandiyohi on my Design Wall post tomorrow.

Used YTD:  44.75 yards
Purchased this week:  1.5 yards

Kandiyohi Part 5 is complete.  Once again pressing should take place.  Oh do I dislike the iron!

Part 6 was easy to cut.  It is already for the teal/brown Part 4 pieced triangles.  All of this project is headed to the quilting retreat that starts Thursday.  Mom and I will be enjoying the company of 24 others for the weekend.  The weather promises to be nice which is a plus.

This is a recent pattern I picked up from Tina Curran called 100 Houses.  Hey Janet want to make a bunch and swap?  This project finishes at 24" x 24".  The units (houses) finish at 2".  Going to use a bunch of scraps on this one.

Have a great rest of your week!
