Looking for my Blog Hop Party giveaway? Click HERE to go there & join in the fun!
Today is one of those really great days I look forward to with much anticipation!
Sundays are always a day of relaxation, spending time with my sweetie, watching sports and some Slow Stitching! This weekend I have been working very hard at reorganizing my stash closet - okay, so maybe that's not so much fun, but I will definitely enjoy the results :*) And I this afternoon I will be working on my latest Promises & Borders block while watching some sports on TV. This is my progress so far....
I'm really liking the lavender I substituted in the bottom left corner rather than the red flowers as in the pattern. Jenny's patterns are amazing, but I was getting a little fatigued at all the red flowers :*) It was nice to start adding some color too. I always begin by getting the neutrals of the letters, the tree and the borders out of the way first so I have the bright colors of flowers, leaves and birds to spur me on to the finish! =^..^=
Today we're looking forward to watching our Goodlettsville, Tennessee, little league guys go for the World Series Championship! Yesterday, the guys won the US Championship - the first time a Tennessee team has ever won.
We are so proud of them! Goodlettsville is a small town just north of Nashville. One of my favorite quilt shops is located there - Quilters Attic. **Hi Fran!**
We're also looking forward to the finish of the Barclays golf tournament - go Tiger!!! - as well as watching our beloved Carolina Panthers duke it out in preseason NFL football tonight. Fun times!!!
I bet what you're really wanting to know though is what is happening in the stash, right? Oh yeah! I know my followers :*) Okay, you'll be happy to know that there have been some really nice enhancements! See.....
|This gorgeous snowflake batik will make a wonderful background for a Christmas quilt :*)|
|These fat quarters insisted on going home with me :*) Love the browns which tend to be hard to find!|
My only finish was my small Twister Tree - you can go HERE to see my earlier post about the large tree and how the leftover scraps make this cute little mini-me tree!
I had already accounted for the fabric used in the trees, but I realized that I had miscalculated, so I get to add 1 yard to my fabric used for my totals this week. That works for me :*)
