Sunday Stash Report

I have been sewing my block exchange top together. You can read about my difficulties here and see the top so far. I have used 2 yards of fabric in putting this top together. I have a total of 1.25 tote full. It will really start to move out the fabric when I put on the borders and prep the back for quilting.

I have plans to make more tote bags for instant gratification! I am going to open an etsy shop this afternoon to try to sell some of my things. I will put it on the side bar when ready.

We are going to start seeds today from some purchased locally. The big seed order went out yesterday and we looked at nursery's most of the morning. For lunch, we ate at a New Orleans syled resturant called "Pearls." I loved it, a must to go to again even though it is an hour away. I had a great time, now I am inspired to make a fairy garden like the nursery had. They had a castle and all. I would settle for some statuary mushrooms, gnomes and fairies. I need to look at the miniture plants they had in it and see what will grow here.

The block quilt is cute! I love the look of it. In spite of it's challenges, it is turning out very nice.

Good luck with your garden.

I am glad I am not the only one running into trouble with lining up. It looks beautiful and as you say the back should help use some fabric from your stash. Good luck!
