Snips of the Week & Stash Report-Week 14

What a treat I got this week...Darlene sent me he leftover pieces of her Oh Cherry Oh so I could use it in my Whirlygigs...look at those cutie fabrics...I had all the pieces cut in no time and started stitching...I have a nice pile of Whirlygigs...these are so fun to do. I'm hoping to get these all done this week so I can start putting it together. This is going to be the cutest quilt.
Yesterday was Mom's 87th birthday...Andy and I went over and celebrated with her and took her to lunch...before we left for lunch the mailman rang her doorbell...a birthday package from
Hampton...
I don't think she could have been any happier. It was a great day. Happy Birthday Mom!



Here's my Stash Report for this week...not really very exciting...I did sell 7 yards of fabric this week so I'm going to count that...sadly that's all I have to count this week, but it is 7 yards off my shelf...YIPPEE!

Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date:10.75 yards

Fabric Used this Week: 7 yards
Fabric Used Year to Date: 86.5 yards

Fabric Busted: 75.75 yards

Tomorrow is a big day for Andy and me...our anniversary...35 years! I'm the luckiest girl around! We're looking forward to lots more years! It keeps getting better and better and lots more fun!
