Sunday Stash: Myriad

I finished quite a few projects this week; my 4 improv pieced blocks for our Modern Quilters challenge, and some journal covers and zip pouches for Wellspring Living recovery house.

I also made myself new potato steaming bag for the microwave; there was an unfortunate smoldering incident with the previous (!).  I also finished two baby quilts, and a zipper pouch to accompany one of the quilts as a gift.  Nina has discovered these in the “to be washed” pile.

I was also super tempted by a sale at an LQS having a 9th anniversary sale to buy 9 yards, get 9 yards free. However, I have plenty of fabric, and I had to work some yesterday so I wasn’t able to take advantage of it. Alas!

  1. Great job avoiding the sale! I was only slightly tempted by the sale. I have to admit I have been in 4 quilt shops in the past 4 weeks and have purchased nothing. Sorting from the move has had a significant effect.

    You have been very productive – me not so much. I did spend 4 hours Saturday at the Central Florida MQG sew-in and will be attending their monthly meeting tonight.

  2. I love the kitty peeking out of the quilt! I’ve decided my husband’s cat finally decided to accept me as 2nd Human because I leave quilts and piles of fabric for her to curl up on. I’m behind on podcasts, I’m listening to the special guest episode right now. Speaking of books that look like nice lady books but aren’t, check out The Ghost Bride by Yangtze Choo. I found it at the library, and reading the summary on the jacket, I thought it was like and Amy Tan sort of book. A ghost bride is married to a young man who died before he could get married, and pretty much lives with his family and takes care of his mother and does the rituals that a widow would. I thought the book would be about a young woman who ends up stuck in this other family married to their dead son until something came along and set her free. Wrong! The ghost husband is this obnoxious dude who won’t stay out of her dreams, and to get rid of him, she goes on this crazy trip through the underworld. It’s a lot more supernatural than I was expecting.

  3. You are booking! Everything looks so great. I bet it feels good to have some finished projects to show.
