|something fishy going on|
We are going to cut it into width of fabric strips, sew them together and she will hopefully have a quilt for her newish granddaughter. I bought this fabric a number of years ago for another little girl, the daughter of a cousin, a merchant seaman. I rarely have any contact though with this cousin, and decided not to bother and bought baby vests instead. Not even sure if I even posted those. Great to use my stash with no effort and hopefully it will be loved by this antipodean baby.
The only stash in this week was a spool of quilting thread. I knew I should have bought two the week before last. My stash has sort of increased though. The daughter had decided we need to clear the roof space, or at least introduce a system. She is nothing if not her father's daughter. Anyhow, in a box of photo frames she found a carrier bag of fabric. Fabric from my sewing first time around. So, new to me again fabric without being new fabric. No photos I'm afraid, but it has now joined the rest of the first time around fabric. Must bring that all down and sort through it. Sort out the chiff from the chaff, or is it the wheat from the grain? Or the sheep from the goats? And why do we have box upon box of photo frames?
As regards my own stash update, you will be glad to know I have finished ALL the quilting on my modern maples quilt. And trimmed the excess. Just the binding to sew on now. And, I bought a lovely brown spot last week for the binding.

Through this next week I have some exciting news. I'm taking part in a blog hop! Woo hoo!
I'll leave you with a photo of Anne's first sewing project. Give her a whoop whoop. A tote bag for her first project. I think I feel a little friendly competition!
