There are no Mistakes in Art

A friend obviously has heard me over and over and over !!! She brought me this unique pin from Australia. Isn’t it neat when friends know you so well!

Stitching Time

Kate, from Life in Pieces, is hosting “Stitching Stuff” and the goal is to sew for at least 15 minutes a day. I use Kate’s guideline, but my personal goal is to sew for 30 minutes a day. On those “blah” days, it does motivate me to sit at my machine and 30 minutes often turns into several hours. Thank you Kate for the motivation!

Stash Report

Donna at Quilt Paint Create hosts a weekly linky party where you can display your stash numbers. This has really kept my stash from growing (somewhat!) Before I buy anything, I am always mindful of the fact that I need to report it on my blog … That sometimes stops me in my tracks!

Nothing finished this week, nothing bought – so no changes to my stash!

  • Fabric Used since the last report    9.5  yards
  • Fabric Used this year:       62 yards
  • Fabric Bought this week:   0 yards

Design Wall

Donna, at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts, host a linky party for “What’s on your Design Wall” every week.


  1. “See Ya Later” Blog Hop: I’ll be using this beautiful fabric that was a gift from a friend who recently visited Australia. (the same friend that gave me the pin at the top of the post). The idea of the “See Ya Later” blog hop is to have something to do with travelling. You will have to wait until August 23 to see what I’m making!


  1. 3 Yard Quilt. needs to be quilted. And, since I have a plan for the quilting, it doesn’t have to languish waiting for me to decide on how to quilt it! I just need to start quilting it!

Upcoming Blog Hops

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

    Thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!
