Adding, adding, adding..... (stash report week 26)

More of this...

leads to more of this...


Yep - more fabric has been added to the stash!  There are 5 yards of Dear Stella and 1 yd of Moda and one FQ lollipop that I got at our guild meeting Tuesday.  The 3 yds of fabric on the right is going into a project box with a Midwinter Reds layer cake.  The other two cuts are slated for two swaps happening next month.

I cannot tell you if this fabric is still available because I am not looking at the Hancock's of Paducah web site for a while.  Why tempt myself?!

On the strange weather front, cold air has moved in and it 66 degrees here as I type!  That's crazy low, lovin' it, windows open, a/c off, birds singing - WooHoo!!  Our high today is supposed to be 78 - one year ago the weatherman says our high was 105.

I have some yard work to do before more rain comes in this afternoon.  Can anyone say, "sewing time?!"  Looking forward to the best of both worlds today.

We caught this pic yesterday as we waited out a brief thunderstorm under a steel bridge in a paddleboat in Forest Park (yeah - that was smart, huh?)  Most of the storm was a downpour, very little thunder or lightening.

That is the St. Louis Art Museum on the hill.  Our goal was to paddle around the fountains in the Grand Basin at the base of Art Hill, which is from the 1904 World's Fair, as is the oldest section of the Art Museum.  The rain lasted just long enough that we decided to the get to the Grand Basin another day.

Have a great week!


  1. I'm following the same strategy you are and staying off the Hancock's web site.

  2. Now that paddle boat ride sounds like fun! I've had an add this week will make the week we record a USED that much better for us. Like your lollipop. Sandi

  3. Kris, don't you wish that rain was here today (high 94 and still going up?) It brought back memories of when I used to spend a lot of time in Forest Park doing fun things. Great picture too. I'm so behind in reading and posting on blog things. I had a bad couple of days, so I've busied myself with surfing the blogs. You also reminded me that some where in this messy house I have a lollipop too. Wonder where?
