Stash Report

With the quilt blocks that came for my birthday, other goodies came too.  I can’t tell you how overwhelmed I feel with all of the good wished and blocks sent my way.

The Friday before my birthday the mailman came to my door with three packages and a big stack of birthday cards.  One of the boxes was this from Gretchen.


I lifted the card and the magazine to find a box full of batiks.  Oh my….I was in shock….in love….amazed…joyful.  I can’t believe the gift.


The note that came with was extra sweet too.  Gretchen remembered that Kelli and I have said we want to make a batik quilt someday.  Well there is enough here!!  Plenty for us both to enjoy.  Now I need a little computer time to come up with a design.

Thank you, thank you Gretchen.  The fabric is over the top- AMAZING and I can’t express how happy I am to now have batiks.  Our friend Helen has gifted up some before too so not only do we have enough fabric to make one we now have enough batiks to make a scrappy batik quilt.


Thanks so much Gretchen…your thoughtfulness is truly appreciated.

  1. Is anyone else having trouble pulling up your whole post since you’ve gone to the new format? I can get the first part, but when I hit “Read more”, it goes to a dead end. I usually have to read someone else’s post and come back to yours, and then I can get it to work. I loved it when the whole post appeared as soon as the website opened.

  2. I am cleaning up my sewing room over the holiday break, so the batiks are all going in one pile/tote. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
    I am not having any trouble with the read more link, mine transitions right to the whole post.

  3. Can’t wait to see what you come up with using the batiks. They look so bright and cheerful! I’m not having any problems with the “read more” link.

  4. I would like to have a “More Posts/Older Posts” label so that I can click to see what I might have missed. I don’t see several post beginnings all at once, just the current one.

  5. Well, there are only two posts that show up at a time with the “read more” label, and I know you post frequently, so I don’t want to miss anything! Please, put a more posts/older posts label at the head or foot of your blog.
