Stash Report

Hooray-Hooray, Mail today!!

I got a box of fun in the mail.

Stash-0
There are all sorts of goodies….The strips are going right into my string quilt blocks that I’ve been working on.The floral sunflowers and going into the box of floral prints I have.  I am saving them to make Bonnie Hunter’s Floribunda pattern.

I really smiled when I saw one of the red Civil War reproductions.  I used the last of mine not to long ago and had lamented as it was a favorite fabric of mine.

I think my favorite part of quilting will always be the petting and sorting of fabric….I LOVE IT!!

This was an anonymous box of goodies…all I know is that “M” in Texas made my day!  Thanks for the great goodies.  I really appreciate it.

    I’ve been saving strings too, could you tell me roughly how wide yours are – I’m wondering how narrow is too narrow to bother keeping.

    I love the boxes of assorted scraps too. They seem better when they come from someone else. I have a large bag I am saving for my cancer surgery tomorrow. I know it will brighten my day when I come home.

    Jo, I don’t get to read your blog everyday, so I usually want to read today’s post, then the previous one, and the one before that…just sort of catch up. However, I don’t see on your blog how to read anything but that day’s post. There is no ‘older’ link to click. Some bloggers have a list of posts on the right margin and you can select a post’s date to click on to read that post. But for today’s post, all I could read was what you posted today and that’s all. Am I missing something? It might just be me, and there’s a way to read it all! I enjoy your blog!

    This is for Sally. You have to go back to the first page of the post. Scroll down and you can find 3 or 4 day of previous posts and than you will finally get to the “older posts” link.

    I need fairies to send me strings, too. I’m working on Bonnie’s String-X pattern and don’t have a lot of scraps myself. It’s so fun when I get some from someone else and get to look through all of their fun fabrics. Enjoy yours!

    For Jen B- anything less than 3/4 of an inch is too small and I go up to just under an 1 and half. If I can get an inch and a half strip, I put it into the Scrap User’s System (Bonnie Hunter’s blog has details on that. Hope that helps you!

    This is for Connie:thank you! I knew it had to be there somewhere because it seemed I had used it in the past! I also now see the “archives” on the right side. It’s very organized!
