Monday Morning Star Count on a Tuesday, June 23

Hello everyone! There was not much stitching going on this past week. I did finish the 7th block for my table topper and now need to continue with stitching the white stars. 

I placed an order for some more paper pieces for the 2 inch diamonds which came yesterday so I can start basting the white stars. 

And looking thru the catalog was so tempting to think about another project since EPP is so very addictive. I have to keep telling myself that I must finish some of my WIP before even thinking about another project.

I am linking up with Jessica over at Life Under Quilts. (Http://lifeunderquilts.blogspot.com) for a Monday Morning Star Count. 

Happy Stitching!

Monday Morning Star Count, June 15

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. It was a beautiful weekend here in New York. Unfortunately, there was not a lot of stitching going on this past weekend. I have been working on these stars for a table runner. I have one more colored star to finish (the gray boarder) and than I will move on to the solid stars. I am using Ruby by Bonnie and Camille for MODA. 
(Sorry not a good day to take photos)

I am very happy that Jessica over at Life Under Quilts has brought back the Monday Morning Star Count blog post. I am linking up with Jessica today, so check out her blog (http://lifeunderquilts.blogspot.com) and see what everyone is working on in the English Paper Piecing community. 

Happy stitching!

Stitch from Stash Update February 2015

Month: February
Spent: $12.68
Earned: 0
Carryover: $12.32

I did much better this month with my budget than last month. I was in the red last month so I didn't spend anything this month and subtracted the overage from last month for the carryover. 

I did finish the JBW Design - French Country Spring Basket, done on 16ct cream Aida fabric with Classic Colorworks - Eve's Leaves floss. I stared this design Spring 2014. I am happy to see it finished. 

Now to pick my next stitching project from my stash. 

Happy Stitching!

The Totally Useless Stitch A Long 2015

This in my first posting for the 2015 TUSAL. The TUSAL is when I post a picture of my ORT jar on the day of the new moon. (I am a day late)  An ORT is a little bit of something left over which for me are threads or sometimes little pieces of fabric scraps. 

I emptied my jar on 12/31/14 and started new for 2015. 

The TUSAL is organized by It's Daffycat and all the rules can be found on her blog. (Http://itsdaffycat.blogspot.com) 

These green and red threads are from a Christmas piece I didn't finish in time for Christmas 2014, so I already have a Christmas piece done for 2015. 
Thank you for visiting.

Monday Morning Star Count

I am almost finished with my Grant Park hexi table runner. I have the binding ready to go and the backing all picked out. It just needs to be sandwiched and quilted. I find the quilting part to be the hardest decision for me to make when it comes to quilting. I can't figure out how I want to quilt it, free motion, hand quilt, so it will sit around in a plastic bag for awhile. (so sad) 

Sorry for the fuzzy picture, not a good picture day. 

I am linking up with Jessica over at Life Under Quilts for her Monday Morning Star Count, 

Thank you for visiting.
