Sunday Stash Report, June 30, 2013

Let me start this last day in June...and...the halfway mark of 2013...with a purchase :(!  I'll be using it up pretty quickly though...  As a matter of fact I've already used all of the greens and neutrals on Kaskade :)!  I'm busy putting the pieces together.  A little more each time I find myself in my sewing room.

As with many projects one needs to purchase some fabrics to complete them.  I am going to love Kaskade, but it may have been more of a reduction to my stash if it had been made with a different shade of neutral and blues or blacks/grays.  Oh well I'm sure another project will come that will help me reduce those two stash containers.

I ran into a shortness of fabrics working on Kerry's patriotic project.  That has been rectified so I will get to working on it again.  I promised a finish for Independence Day which is what I plan to accomplish.  There are other projects going on that I will share progress on tomorrow on my Design Wall post with Patchwork Times.

I'm anxious to see the Thirteen in 2013 Parade today with Aunt Marti.  Mine is Kloudburst.  I selected both thread and quilting pattern at Kerry's Quilting on Friday.  Gold thread and a design called Twirly Feathers.  I'll be anxious to see how it turns out.  Monday Aunt Marti will announce the July UFO...excited!

I found time to sort out the HST Swap on Saturday.  The participants packages are either in the mail or in my trunk.  Liz has already been to pick hers up.  I hope to get to El Cajon Library at noon today for a little Opportunity Quilt for Sunshine sewing.  Perhaps there will be others in attendance who will claim their package.

So for today I have 7 quarter yard and 4 half yard pieces to bring up my purchase status.  Nothing to claim, but come next Sunday Kaskade just might change my Net for 2013!  See other quilters using their stash through the links at Patchwork Times.

Such pretty additions - love your pattern. Those spiky stars are a favorite and it already looks like it's moving.
