Mill House Baby

Mill House Baby

This is my latest finish. Mill House Baby is for a Coworker who is due in May. She is having a baby girl.

I used one charm pack of Mill House, vintage cotton lace and fabrics from my stash to finish off the borders.

Looks much better in person as the rain is still coming down here in California.

Stash Report #1

I have decided to start reporting my stash usage. As my husband can tell you, my stash is reproducing like bunnies! I am determined to use my stash this year. I didn't do well yesterday as I went to our local Quilt Show and added 14 yards to the stash but I couldn't resist the prices. I found a large piece (7.5 yds) of vintage goodness. I am a sucker for 60's-70's fabrics and this one was just singing to me, loudly, it even made me smile when I saw it. It made an older lady give me a weird look. I'm sure she was yelling to herself, no don't! But I did and for $5 it was the bargain of the day.

So without further a do here is week #1 stash report:

Date 4/11/10

used y-t-d: 4.653
added this week: 36.5 (yikes)

Spring is here, finally!

Yes I know it has been a long while since I have posted. It has been a long and crazy winter/early spring. I have been planning projects, purchasing fabric I don't need, and day dreaming of the time to transform said fabric into completed treasures.

I did come across a great find.... this Katie Cupcake pattern.

I can't wait to make it and I even pulled fabrics from my stash last night so I can whip it up this weekend!!!
