I am back to working on Vintage Christmas.  These monthly packages "pack" a lot of cutting time.  I started around 9am and didn't finish the six blocks of Month 2 until 1pm.  No breaks in between!  I have six months worth and only now working on Month 2.  Month 7 is on its way so I am inspired to get up-to-date.

This is just a reminder of the six blocks of Month 1.  I will share with you the blocks of Month 2 as soon as I can stitch them up.
Here is the finished project that I am working towards.  

Hoping the rest of my Michigan project arrive today!  

I have a few fun things to look forward to this week.  Our first Sunshine Quilt Guild physical gathering on Tuesday night.  It is a bring your own dinner and lawn chair night.  It is also the night when the 2020-2021 Opportunity Quilt Winner will be drawn.  My next fun thing is on Friday having lunch with friends I haven't seen in quite sometime.  Finally, spending time with family in Riverside for the day on Saturday to celebrate one of three family birthdays that takes place on the 11th.  Wish I could be in Florida to celebrate with my brother and Virginia doing a happy dance with my nephew.  June is the biggest month of family birthdays.

Have a wonderful week ahead.  

Sunday Stash Report, June 6, 2021


I've been getting around ten of these done each night.  45 complete with 55 to go.  These finish at 4" in the quilt.  I know sounds like a lot but that's just over five evenings of sewing =^.^=

During the week I received the first of two shipments that I need to receive before I am back to Laundry Basket Quilts Mystery Quilt 2021.  Oh this quilt does have a name now coined by Laundry Basket Quilts; Michigan.  Of course I'm looking for a name for mine still...any ideas out there?  Mine is the blue that inspired Michigan's blue lakes and blue skies.

I have no finishes so just this one from Be Creative Quilting Fabric from Kooskia, ID.  Maybe that is an idea for a name?

Happy Birthday Kosmo and Kassy.  Thinking back four years to day we brought them into our lives.  Kosmo the lover and Kassy the fastest by far.  Chewy sent them a birthday card and look what Mom gave them...

Kassy is enjoying the mice with the feather tails.  The springs will have Kosmo racing up and down the hall.  Don't know if you noticed by the Churu treats have been licked up as fast as I can serve them.  As a matter of fact, Amazon has already delivered the next Churu Pops.
Kosmo is checking out the second part of their gift.  Not sure these cute dishes will remain for the cats.  They are a bit too shallow for the way they eat.  More ends up on the floor than in their tummies.
