Sunday Stash Report

I haven't done much sewing this week. Being away from home for all but one night doesn't help! I have bought some fabric though so its a case of going backwards!! 

I visited a little patchwork shop in Sarina and ended up buying .25m of another Betty Boop fabric and and the same of a nice red and white spot - so that's .5m all up. No photos to share as I didn't get around to taking one.

I am now in Sydney and hope to call in at another craft exchange place - so that might well be more fabric in. We shall see if I get there :)

The reason I have come down to Sydney is that my second eldest sister Joy turned 70 and we had a special celebration for her. I had made her a quilt and I gave that to her before the party and she was suitably delighted by it.

With one of my great nephews

With all my siblings and their partners at my sister Joy's birthday (I'm seated on floor on left if you were wondering) Can you work out which are the siblings and which are the spouses? Hint there are 6 girls and 2 boys in my family

Linking up with Patchwork Times


  1. Freshening your stash as a memory aid for the event. Each time you see those 2 fabrics you will think of Joy.

  2. I like your quilt, and it looked like you had a splendid time. A little stash enhancement is good for the soul.

  3. Fun quilt! Looks like your sister was delighted. You are still doing well with having more out then in. Refreshing the stash is necessary occasionally.

  4. Guessing...I'm guessing that the woman with darker hair (not the sister on your quilt pic) and seated far right on a chair is not your sister. As for the men...I can't quite guess, trying to check the eyes, noses and smiles, but...

    1. no she's my sister 8 years older than me and looks about 10 years younger. The ones standing along the back are all the inlaws. One brother is divorced and my husband couldn't come so we aren't claimed. The rest of them are basically standing behind their spouses. The sisters sitting on the floor with me have spouses in the back row
