Some of This, Some of That

First off the EPP papers giveaway is still active. See top, sidebar.  As to the stash:  Nothing came in - yeah.  Used bits of scraps for my applique block and hexies to the total of a 0.06 yd.  Another bit of scraps in leaders and enders hourglass blocks for another measly 0.04 yd.  Then I made a neonatal top using .62 yd.  and donated 2.13 yds of fabric to the guild. My YTD is now 12.93 yds destashed.  I'm going to have to be more ruthless as I go through piles of fabric and just "let go" of some of it. Sigh.  Do you have that problem?

I had made a goal of finishing off my hexie ring, doing a bit of FMQ quilting [curvy lines instead of straight] on that St. Anne's quilt and start on my next WIP (I refuse to call them UFOs -hehe) for 17 ---- for 2017 for last Sunday.  They turned out to be my week's goals. I did work on two of them and got a bit done. Here's the quilt in progress and one fourth of a scrap block:

As soon as I publish this I'm off to do some hexies and maybe get a motif in on my ancient one.  That should do it for this week's slow stitching.

What are you up to?  Are you doing some slow stitching today?  It's a beautiful clear, 80 degrees day outside.  The patio rocker is calling me to come out a sit a spell.  Hope you get to ply a needle today. 

Linking to Judy's Patchwork Times and some other linky parties in my tab above. Blessings,

slow stitching is so much more relaxing but apart from binding quilt none done this week but today I hope to start hand quilting my maggies dance quilt.
We shall see if anything goes out of the stash tomorrow but if not it looks like January 2017 will see with 31.67 yards out and 1 1/2 yards in from that fateful trip to Road to California. Be blessed my friend. So sad to hear about Alice.

Hello Angie,

Goodness you have been busy!

Curved lines over pieced squares work really well - they batten down the seams nicely. Such wonderful colours - I love the vibrant greens.

Thank you for linking up with Free Motion Mavericks!

Love, Muv
