busy day

 Last night I sent my husband off to ride his motorcycle so I could complete my quilt top. It was way to hot to ride for me and I was ready to get the top complete. I hope the picture does the colors justice. I do love some blues and greens. Hoping to go to a low key guild meeting Tuesday night so I can make sure I am ready to quilt and get a few tips on best practice.

This morning bright and early I had to go into to work for a air handler shutdown which could have also shut down the lab equipment for the OR. After the all clear I decide I was overdue for a trip to the not-so LNS. I was able to pic up a few charts I had on order and a couple more that caught my eye while I was there. My frames were also in that I had ordered for the long forgotten basket pieces. They have been in for a while I just have had a busy summer and not able to break away for the stash therapy/stitching session. I got the new JCS fall issue, 2 of the 3 non-longer a mystery sampler charts. The mermaid purse with fabric by VS. A new Black Bird mystery sampler and a Moria Blackburn. three things sampler. Best of all I even managed to stitch today! :)

Here is a question for you, what do you think your projects purchased to projects stitched ratio would be if we were to look deep into the recesses of your stash? I'll tell if you do.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by,


  1. Wow, I love your quilt top! Blues and greens really do look pretty together.
    I don't even want to calculate my ratio of purchases to finishes because I fear it may be over 50 to 1.

  2. Love the quilt top! Really pretty colors! Glad you found time to go to the LNS, you made some lovely purchases! There is no way I even want to think about my ratio of purchases to finishes, nope not going there! lol

  3. You have got to be kidding. My ratio is too big to think about. Seeing your new stash just makes me want more.

  4. Love the colors in your quilt top!

    I do believe that your question is one of those that is taboo....something that really shouldn't be asked - along the lines of asking someone how much they weigh or how old they are! ;)

  6. Hi Pam... sorry about deleting the first comment... messed up. :)

    Your quilt top is very pretty. As to the ratio question, I'm afraid my ratio isn't too good. I tend to buy a project and then get side tracked and work on something else. :)

    God bless and keep you,
