Happy Easter to all! Penny and I are wishing you a glorious Sunday! We're, yikes, cooking today! Jane and her sweet DH will be coming over a little later.
Stash report .... there was incoming and no sewing. Well, I'm working on stitching the binding on #6 quilt and there are two more to go. So some forward progress is being made, even though there's no stash busting involved.
This week's box included 10 yards for the Port-de-France kit and the backing, and 9 yards of backing for the Hearth & Home BOM. You've got to hand it to me - I sure have my backings lined up for when the quilts are done, don't I? :)
I wanted to cut out a kit this week but was too stressed each night to trust myself cutting. I'm going to be making the Rabbits Prefer Embroidery quilt by Bunny Hill Designs. I picked up the kit last year from the Fat Quarter Shop. I "audited" an embroidery class at Ginger's a couple of weeks ago and was inspired enough to pull this out. Although I won't get to touch it for a couple of more weeks, I'm looking foward to working on this project. Something to keep my mind and hands busy over the next few months when I'm too worried about my person at work to sit at the sewing machine. It was Anne's suggestion, so this will be my reflection project.
Next week will see another 18 or 19 yards landing of, I think, backing to go with a Martinque bundle, and borders and backing for a Rural Jardin bundle. See how I get in so much trouble? Bought those bundles and then had to get the go-withs!
Busted: 98.625 yards
