Sunday Stash on Monday

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Mine was a blur: Roxy/Quicksilver sample sale with kids Friday night, then set up retreat, 14 hours at retreat Saturday, B & T overnight hike with Scouts from 7 p.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday, D on a sleepover, 8 km walk with doggie Sunday a.m. followed by whole house vacuum & folding of multiple loads of laundry, retreat unpack (sort of), afternoon of family games and pizza downtown with friends. I am super tired and attempting to keep my blood pressure in check because this is gonna be a very busy week.

I intended to jump on the "Sunday Stash" blog- bandwagon yesterday, but decided to take a much-needed break from the computer. So friends, now I give you Sunday stash on Monday:

Hope Valley

I'm probably the last quilter to acquire this delicious Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt. My LQS is having a 30% off anniversary sale - DANGER - so I did a bit of stash-building last week.

My stash reds tend towards burgundy, so I just had to buy these nice, clear, bright ones. Really, I need them! My very talented flickr/blogger friend Carol just published this great pattern and my plan is to make this for my sister's family in time for Christmas. You read it here: Christmas project underway (sort of) 8 months in advance.....will she get it done, you ask? Keep an eye on me, and get ready to dish out some encouragement. You know how these Christmas projects always start with the best intentions, then summer comes along and the garden needs attention and before you know it, it's Hallowe'en costume-making-time and suddenly it's Dec.24th!

Moving along, these next ones are just because.

Kaffe Fasset spot, paperweight & kona solid

A fun Kaffe Fasset spot in brown & aqua, his Paperweight in lime (my all time fav Kaffe print) and a Kona solid, likely destined for sashing on some project or other.

And now to my busy week.....things may be quiet here for a few days!

I love that tree skirt design! Get to work! :) Things are going to be slow here for awhile too. The baby is sick....again.

Oh my, what a crazy weekend, are you still in an upright position? Great stashbuilding! How could anyone pass by a 30% off anything quilty; that's why I try to stay away from quilt shops, local and online...

I love those kinds of weekends. Hope Valley is so pretty!

Here's to a weekend and a week of burning calories!!! (just think of it that way)

Can't wait to see that finished Christmas project. Believe me, it's easy-peasy and should only take you about 2 days. Really! Glad you survived the weekend!
