It's June Already!

I just can't believe that it's June already today! How time is flying and it seems little is getting accomplished but I know other things sometimes take priority over unfinished projects and starting new ones. I've been busy the last couple of months with my photography business since it's the busy time of year but I sure have not hung up my sewing needle and thread. I've been working on a Block of the Month with a local quilt shop, Sew This in Abita Springs, LA - the program is designed so that we have the top pieced by the end of this year! Yup I said this year! I'll try to get some snip-it photos up soon of what I've accomplished thus far. I've also been busy shopping for fabrics both locally and online - I just couldn't pass up the 50% off sale at a local Walmart that is going to close and open in a new supercenter but of course, no more fabrics in the supercenter -- dumb move for Walmart if you ask me! Anyways, I made several trips to snatch up as much quilting cotton as I liked and also snatched up several other fabrics for home dec projects and gift items for the soon upcoming holiday season --- I need to start cracking open those projects soon too.

My stash is grown quite a bit recently so I had to reorganize things a bit and get the yardage into more manageable and friendly piles - so I decided to fold anything with a yard or more of uncut fabric into what you see here. It's working great to glance to see what I have lots of on hand and the grouping by color also helps too!

There are a few novelty prints that I have acquired too and some of those are already separated out into project bags with a pattern for this or for that. I also have been gaterhing up lots of chickens and roosters lately too! HMM not sure what i'm doing with all that foul yet though but i'm sure something will cook up!

Enjoy the beginning of summer! It sure has gotten hot here
in New Orleans lately but thank goodness for air conditioning - I would not survive here otherwise.

Well that's all I have for now. I hope I doesn't take me another couple of months to update my blog --- isn't the idea of a blog to update it very often --- I should live by my own advice. LOL.

Here you are! I was about ready to send out search and rescue!

Good looking stash you've got going there! Love those blues. I see beautiful quilts coming off that shelf!
