Sunday Stash Reporting, A Day Late (and a link to assist horses and cattle displaced by Ike)

  • Incoming Yardage to date: 84
  • Outgoing Yardage to date:  105 & 5/12yds
  • Total Stash Busted to date: 21 & 5/12 yds.

My stash numbers didn’t change any this week, either.  However, Thousand of Bolts was having one of their end of bolt sales, which is usually a big weakness of mine.  I allowed myself to “shop” and put the fabric I would normally buy, into my cart.  But instead of checking all the way out, I only went as far as getting the total cost, with shipping charges.  Then I emptied my cart.  I saved $101.47, which will be put into my little “stash savings” I’ve started.  I’m curious to see how quickly it adds up.  Sure takes some control to get it into the cart, and put it back, though.  🙂  Especially with my husband saying, “why didn’t you go ahead and get it?”  He’ such an enabler! 😉

I did get the machine stitching done on the applique for the fall wallhanging.  Now I have to see if I can do the “hand embroidery” parts with my Bernina, and do the pieced blocks. 

Yesterday morning, I looked out the back window, and there were all these little water drops, from the sprinkler, on what is left of some of my parsley.  The sunlight was hitting it just right to make it look like it was covered in little crystals.  I tried to capture it for you with my camera, but this was the best I could do.  I wish I could have caught all the brilliant colors I could see with my eyes:  red, blue, green, purple, orange, yellow.  It was so pretty.   You will have to click on the pictures, to open them up larger, to see what I’m talking about.









Something else I meant to mention in my blog over the last few days, in case you are so inclined, is that apparently there are many displaced horses and cattle, from Hurricane Ike.  They are in desparate need of food, water, and other supplies for these animals.  There was an article about it in our local newspaper.  If, like me, you want to make a donation to this cause, you can do so at this site.  Click on the “No Fences” link to donate.

  1. Beautiful, beautiful pics! Congrats on emptying your cart – I did not at eQuilter … and now have the fabric for my next three quilts. Good thing I’m not stash busting, isn’t it?? Why is it I have shelves and shelves of fabric but never the “right” one in the “right” shade …..

    I made my little donation to “No Fences”, thank you for the link. My heart just aches for all of the animals.

    Thank you, Sammi! You are so sweet!
