I know it seems I’ve been missing in action, but to tell you the truth, I’ve been head down, tail up working at getting my stash up and running!!!
….aside from the fact my camera’s batteries went flat and every time I went to the shops, I forgot to get some!!!!! However, that little mishap has been rectified now and I’m up and running again….soooooooooooo, to show you what I’ve been up to…..
four more blocks for the Sandy Quilt Block Drive stitched up and ready to go today….
3 hot-pads for the birthday stash box…
and a quilt that qualifies for the birthday-love stash aaaaaand…..
a UFO finish for our 2013 Sew it’s Finished group…
which you can find more out about HERE…..
d’awwwww, aren’t these puppies soooo cute????
This was a flimsy I picked up at my local Lifeline store last year and it’s been sitting there waiting for a ‘friend’. It was my boss’s 50th birthday over the weekend, and she’s a fanatical dog-lover, so this li’l flimsy found a pal!!!! All it needed was a border, sandwiching, quilting and binding and shazzaaaam! Done!
This one has already left the Birthday-Love stash box and it was very satisfying knowing I had it there ready!!!! (and the boss was over the moon too!…..noice!!!)
Speaking of Birthday-Love Stash boxes….have you organised one yet?
I just found a pretty storage box from the cheap store for a couple of dollars, put a label on it
…and now my ‘stash’ has a temporary home until each gift finds its way to its ‘owner’!
I’ve organised my calendar too….have you???? I picked up a pretty diary……
and added my birthdays to each month….it was very comforting knowing I had everything organised (knowing the terribly disorganised person I normally am!) and I could actually plan ‘ahead’ for a change! ….even better knowing there weren’t many birthdays in January and I could get myself ahead!!!! *phew*
It’s not too late to sign up for January’s Birthday-Love Stash……Sign up using Mr Widget HERE , stitch some love, write about it in your blog and we’ll all come visiting you via your Mr Widget link in the week before the last weekend in the month (yep, I know I’ve changed it again, but it’s an idea that keeps evolving in my head….scary thought!!!…..but I thought that might be easier!!!). On that LAST WEEKEND in the month, I’ll randomly choose someone to receive a little ‘birthday-love’ creative assistance. This month it’s going to be this gorgeous charm pack….
Wouldn’t that help to make some beautiful additions to your Stash!!!???
Looking forward to seeing your creations….I’m off to make a birthday cake for hubby’s birthday today!
sugary hugs xox :O)
