Saturday Stash

Again I added to my stash. I really can't wait to retire so I can start reporting what I subtract from my stash.
Friday, AJ had to stop at Trader's Joe so I went in to JoAnn's to pick through sale items.
When I got home, I had received the fabric for the back of my place mats and my quilting magazine in the mail --- more stash
Saturday, we met AJ's sister and her husband for dinner. Naturally, we stopped in Chesapeake City at Vulcan Fibers. And naturally, yarn followed me home. You know I am an addict and I love the clearance bins.

Hello, My Name is Barbara

I am addicted to yarn...
My local yarn shop is closing and I was invited to a special before sale event. So, I really do have an excuse.
I am missing 2 skeins in the photo!

UFO Weekend

I spent this past weekend at Peggy's Sewing Center. I left Saturday morning, pieced, left my stuff overnight and came back Sunday to piece some more.

I loaded the car with the essentials

A set of place mats using fabric in my stash

Moda Bake Shop recipe using Moda's Bar Harbor layer cake

Of course, I had to replace my stash with some goodies.
And I can add some thrift store finds.
Found at a nice thrift store near the dentist
And look what I got on clearance - even got an extra 15% off.
