I love Kathy's new Slow Sunday Stitching linky party! It's a fun new place to encourage and show off our hand stitching. A few weeks ago, I blogged HERE about the peaceful stitching view at my son's house while visiting them in Carolina. So last weekend I was visiting with my daughter and had the pleasure of sitting on Sunday morning for several hours on her wonderful front porch and again enjoying the beauty of God's nature all around me....
.... while stitching happily on my current Promises and Borders block.
Progress is slowly being made, but that's exactly what this linky party is all about - taking it slow and enjoying the journey!
Ahhhhh! How peaceful and refreshing!!!
On the Stash Report front, there are enhancements this week!
The Quilters Path got in several new batiks last week, and we all know how much I love batiks, right? So I hurried on down to Mt Juliet to see what goodies I could acquire for the stash :*) Oh my, at the lovely batiks! She has a lot of new oranges and blues!!! Several that have nice big designs too for border treatments!
But in the end, these are the ones that came home with me....
I got half a yard of this beautiful blue. It will sparkle up any quilt, whether it is a focal print in a small quilt or scrappy in a large one. It will sing!!!
And anyone want to venture a guess at how much I got of this AMAZING black/cooper/gold stripe? FIVE YARDS!!!

I also learned that I WON the Connecting Threads Light & Bright fat-quarter Sampler from my friend Connie over at Quilting by the River!!!
OMG!!! I am SO excited about this win! I'll show off the fabrics and report them in my stash when they arrive.
This is my report for this week:
Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD 2012: 83.25 yards
Added this week: 5.50 yards
Added YTD 2012: 166.50 yards
Net Used for 2012: -83.25 yards
Notice anything here? I have added EXACTLY twice as much fabric as I have used YTD - too freaky! LOL!!!
How about your stash? Have you added anything new or scored a finish this week? Share your report at Patchwork Times!
Hugs & Blessings,
