Sunday Stash Report, March 7, 2021


This is the second making of Star Struck that will be a Charity Quilt for YWCA, Betsy's House.  As you might recall from my last post I would be making two of these designs by Jenny Doan of Missouri Star.  The red fabric is from my sister.  If you look close enough you'll see that there are watermelon seeds all over.  The white comes from my Mom...her happiness and soon to be a child's cuddle quilt.

First arrival during the week was a FQ Bundle of Kimberbell Basics Whites.  FQs of white on white.  This came from of Moscow, ID.
Second arrival came from Mom.  This was a surprise package full of fun and silly things.  One even had me winning $10!  Not pictured here (because I forgot to include in the photo) a box of Mint Girl Scout Cookies.  It is that time of year to provide a little bit of support to the Girl Scouts.  In case you aren't aware I'm crazy about cat socks!  The batik will be used for the right project down the road and the ornament is adorable.  It will be added to the UFO #4 for 2021 project which hopefully will be done before it is time to adorn the tree.  Now if you want to know about the envelope marked "Emergency" you need to IM me, LOL!

Next in the mail on the same day no less came these two packages.  Vintage Christmas from of Quitman, TX.  This is month 4 and sadly I've only sewn up through month 1.  Kerry and I are doing this one and she's up-to-date if you want to check out these cute blocks...or you can wait on me =^.^= of Buda, TX had a deal on the Kim Diehl Butter Churn Basics collection.  Apparently Henry Glass Fabrics put these out yearly as one is the 2016 offering and the other 2018.  Now I have them in my stash for a future project.
Well now with two rather good size adds to my stash in the three FQ Bundles there has to be some sewing progress so Star Struck, Star Struck 2 and this very cute Bunny project by Ruthie Gordy from Rosie's Calico Cupboard Quilt Shop come out from under the needle.  I will be working on the stems and leaves for the flowers then sew down the outer border and add the textured tail.  This one goes to Greyson and the next project is another table runner for Mom called Springtime Bunnies.  Both the Star Struck projects and Bunny are using all scraps which helps with space to store the new!

Love the bunny quilt, and to make two of them is really special. Love the puff of the tail.
I am sure the USPS AND THE UPS drivers know where you live, something in the mail each day, lol
I am going to make the Star Struck quilt, really like it and I can follow Jenny Dolan in the making of it. Just can't cut up all the pieces at once, dear Arthur says "not so fast"
Sun popping out more each day, makes one feel alive again. Love you
