Sew Your Stash Thin 2013

So I'm feeling way more motivated since posting yesterday.  Thanks to everyone who has visited and taken the time to comment.  Your lovely comments mean a lot.  So my advice to fellow bloggers who are on a bit of a downer - BLOG!!  It is amazing what a bit of encouragement can do for the soul.

So I thought I would take advantage of my returning motivation and post this morning what I hopefully plan to WILL accomplish today.

I joined in the Lucky Star BOM at Don't Call me Betsy and today I am going to sew the first 2 blocks!  I was originally going to make it an all solids quilt but I've decided to join in AJ's Sew Your Stash Thin 2013
sew your stash thin 5
So with that in mind I am going to use fabrics from my stash.  So my Lucky Stars won't be exactly what I wanted but I'm sure I will be able to find something I like from the stash, right??


  1. Good title, i need to sew my stash thin, instead of it expanding!! I'm really looking forward to seeing your Lucky Stars. :)

  2. While I love the idea of sewing from stash, I don't love that you are going to make a quilt you don't love. I mean, it'll be gorgeous ever way, because the stars are fabulous and you are an amazing stitcher, just make sure you pick colours (from our stash) that you like.

    (oh, and I didn't say it yesterday, but I missed your shiney happy blog for the last few weeks, and I'm glad you're back :-D)

  3. Hello Mara from Greece, I feel we are soul sisters from reading your post below, I was a massage therapist before kids. And would totally think it would be awesome to open a sewing cafe (I think they need them in hospitals, do some EPP while waiting). Thanks for joining my blog I am reciprocating.

  4. Hi Gillian, thank you for stopping by my blog - really appreciate it! I am so jealous of your stash!! I wished I had that many fabrics to play around with. Looking forward to seeing your lucky star block
