::Sunday Stash #4

 I thought I would partake in a little stash reveal. I swear
I have the best intentions...such as when I started posting
Sunday Stash posts. Yet, it seems the last one was last 
April and I only posted twice. Yikes.
 So here I am jumping back on. Maybe #5 will 
be in 2020.

Shall we get done to the business of said Stash reveal... First up a layer cake that 
was a gift from my sister at Christmas. It is call Pastel Pop of the Michael Miller fame. 
It is an amassment of greys and yellows all gratifyingly designed. Yes, I like. 

Next up are a pre-Christmas purchase I made and intended them to 
become Christmas gifts. Oh crap intentions again. The beauty on the top
is Kokeshi by Suzy Ultman for Robert Kaufman. I am a little infatuated with it. 
Under that delightful print is a stack from Riley Blake. Whose designs
I am also a little infatuated with.

 My what big eyes you have..... I was the fortunate recipient
of a gift certificate to Fabricworm for Christmas from 
my husband. (he likes me) 
Riding Hood (above) by Josephine Kimberling, well 
I couldn't resist. And the rest of my stash additions
came from that. Whoot. 

The three crazy prints above are destined to be in 
Gypsy Wife as soon as I locate the book. 
The why of it being lost is a long story. 
I am hoping it stops hiding soon. 

On the same gift certificate I also got the  prints above. 
I just liked them thats why. The green and peach are
by Ana Davis, the pink/purple is by Allison Glass, the pink
and brown is Pippa by Blend.

To round it all out I had enough to get a few solids. 
Now I need to put these babies to work.

Year in Review

There is a bit of a theme a brewing with what I created this year.
Can you find it. Haha
In the collage:
We start out with a man cozie
a girly cozie, 
cozies again,
 t and x block,
 water bottle cozie, 
and pillow.
Not as much as I would like so here's to a New
Year and new creations.

Lost but not forgotten

It has been a long time, old space of mine, and so much has happened.
The biggest thing is that I have the honor of being a classroom teacher for the first time.
That in itself has taken much of my time and energy. I so love it!

New Dog  insisted on being in this photo, apparently Used Dog wasn't interested.
Because I live in the frozen tundra, school was closed today.
What better way to feel warm than a quilty post.
I did accomplish some things in the last few months.
 The above quilt for one.
 Inspired from this book, which I love,
it is much like the quilt on the cover of the book and so easy.
Every piece of it is a scrap.
And every scrap is a favorite.
I can look at it and I remember things made and who they were made for...
slippers (slips) for a beloved nieces wedding, a bag for a friend,
I bound it in a gray dot. Notice the gushers wrapper in the chair?
Well, I didn't until I put the picture up.
 Teenagers and their refusal to use modern conveniences such as the garbage can.
 I decided to use the picture anyway, it makes me giggle.

 Quilt without said dog.

The back.
 I used fabric from my stash in soft purples.
 The check is actually 17 years old
wow it sounds older now that I put it in print.
Kinda gives new meaning to the term stash. Yikes.
It is in one of my son's baby quilts from my sister.
A.Mazing how fabric holds up.
Sometime this fall I got a box from my mom with this fabric and pattern in it.
Also, a note that said she would like it made up for her for Christmas.
Perfect. Moms get harder and harder to shop for. Especially
when they don't need anything. Funny enough, she forgot
all about it and was somewhat surprised. Haha

 Lastly, I made these casserole carriers for my three sisters
for Christmas.

There is a spoon holder on the top. They are pretty quick to sew once
you get the hang of it plus, the tutorial is awesome.
 I would like one for myself now.
