Stash Gone Wild

 005 Just a little peek in my sewing closet…and yes this is a stash gone wild.  My friend Teresa has inspired me to get it under control.  She recently donated 4 HUGE bags of fabric to a group (actually there were 7, but her mom captured 3 of them)!  I have donated a bag, given a couple kits to friends and mailed off a couple more to some  long distance quilty friends to add to their own wild stashes!

……then there was a bit of time to whip up a dish towel…….

004 

……finish up the Valentine Cake  hanging I started at quilt camp….

006

and make  pillowcases for some kiddos.  Sprinkled in here and there, some wonderful time with my favorite little dots.  Our niece is graduating from college Saturday and a big family celebration will be happening…….life is very good!

Happy Friday everyone :-)!!!

Your dish towel is very sweet! Your valentine's quilt is equally as sweet. I wish my stash was as wild as yours. but I can say that all the end of year teachers gifts that I'm working out came completely out of my (small) stash. Happy for that!

I have a wild stash too! I think all those fabrics party and boogie down at night...surely I did not make such a mess.

Isn't it awful how we end up (gladly) giving away fabric that we spent good money on in the past! Well hopefully it goes to good use.
