Hurray! My husband's home! The kids and I have missed him, but what I've secretly missed most (um, or maybe not so secretly - he might be on to me ; ) is the extra time to sew that his arrival reinstates. He is the most amazing house cleaner, dinner prepper, and children's dispute arbitrator, allowing me the next seven weeks until school begins to dive headlong into longarming. Hopefully I'll have some "hot off the frame" newbie quilting to show in the coming weeks. My mom sent a stack of charity quilts, as well as I Spy tops for my youngest and two cousins, so I have a few to start practicing on.
Here's my stash share for the week...
I have one of those kids who needs the length but otherwise is not remotely close to filling out her current size, so rather than take in pants, I think it'll be a dresses and leggings fall/winter wardrobe for her. Picked up this Jo-Ann's corduroy and two knits on clearance last week to make some tee dresses... assuming I get over my fear of knits! My MIL is fantastic at sewing with them, though, so maybe I'll sign up for a quick lesson with her first.
I found this stripe from Wrenly by Valorie Wells to use for the backing of my Supernova Friendship Block Swap quilt. I really wanted this, but the stripes match the palette perfectly and were on sale for half the price, and it's a goal of mine to exercise a little more self control and thrift with fabric purchases : )
And last of all, my June Stash Stack Club fabrics. You probably already know I love Dear Stella, so seeing Wild Hearts in Gray in the stack made my heart flutter! Now I want them in every color. What print are you crushing on right now?
Linking up with the super sparkly Sunday Stash!
