Stash Report – Week 16, 2016

For the fabric stash:

Last weekend, my baby girl and I went to my favorite LQS and took advantage of their anniversary sale.  I already added those numbers in so we’re good on that end.  But my baby girl decided she wanted to make herself a pillow.  So we bought her fabric.  Since it was for her, I didn’t include these in my numbers and I can’t mark them as used.  I didn’t help her with the color choices either.  She has a great color sense.

Anyway, after sleeping on it for a week, she decided that the color combo didn’t match the quilt on her bed (currently Scrapitude) or her room in general.  So Friday, she made another one to match her quilt.  I do not have pictures of that one because she’s still sleeping on it.  I’ll try to post a picture when she wakes up.  She shopped my stash to make that one! 🙂  So I’ve got a bit used!  I’m one thrilled mama to have my baby girl suddenly have a desire to sew.  She whipped out her bernette and started sewing.  I also let her use my Aurifil for the first time and she absolutely loved it.

Update – Here’s a pic of the new pillow…

  1. So good to hear of a younger generation wanting to sew. And she made 2 lovely pillowcases. You’re moving along on your blocks. Blessings,

    • Thanks Cynthia! 🙂 I hope so. She has a great sense of color but I don’t want to be too pushy so I’m trying to just back off and let her do as she wants. 🙂 And still help when she wants.
