Shopping in my Stash.

I follow a blog by Jenny of Elefantz. She does cute little embroideries among other things, and the other day she made me think, yes real hard,
about all the fabric in my stash.

My friend Alison was sorting out her sewing room, folding and sorting out her stash, and I am not sure which of us has the most fabric, believe me we have a lot. I was pretty ashamed of us both.

So this week I have shopped from my stash. Its not a big quilt I have put together, at the moment it is aprox 40" x 40", not sure if it is going to get a border or not yet.

Quilt so far, might add a few more leaves.

The pattern is by Edyta Sitar from Laundry Basket Quilts,and is called Rainy Day Trio. It takes just 4 fat 1/4's for the background, and scraps for the appliqué. I just love the background. This little quilt is going to be machine appliquéd, and hopefully hung on the wall in my guest bedroom.
To say the least, I am feeling very pleased with myself, as everything was from my stash. And as Jenny of Elefantz said give the fabrics in your stash a "Moment to Shine".

I finished the two pairs of PJ's bottoms too, so a good sewing weekend.

There is no way to make PJ's look good in a photo, unless someone is wearing them and Mr M refused.:0))
love the neat pockets.

All in all, it was a good weekend. I even had a lovely email from the Designer, Deborah Kemball, encouraging me on my BOM Floral Impressions. She is here in the UK, meeting up with Michael from the wonderful Oakshotts Fabrics. I wonder what they are cooking up, whatever it is it will be beautiful.

Now I must get on with our BOM. I have not yet stitched block 9 or written the instructions, it's all still in my head. I also have to go and makes some muffins as we are at the Bee tomorrow.

Stay safe and keep stitching……..Doti...
