Rosebud, A Hexie, A Giveaway, and My Stash Report

Hopefully tonight Blogger doesn't give me any trouble.  Sometimes it can work so well and at other times it seems a bit finicky.


Today's block is called Rosebud.  This block doesn't remind me of a rosebud, but I did look ahead today and there are a lot of flowers scheduled for the week ahead.  They seem perfect for May.  This is block number 127 of 366 and is a 9-inch block.


I still have a bag of hexies in my purse for those times when I'm waiting for one reason or another.  I had some time on Friday and decided rather than just sitting I could be doing something.  I have another one almost finished, and I'm thinking I might just use some of these in the border of the Vignette Hexagon Quilt.


Now for the giveaway.  I bought copies of these magazines and then received the same magazines in the mail yesterday.  Since I've already read my copies, I thought I'd share these two with one of you.  Just leave me a comment that you would like me to send them to you (wherever in the world you are), and I will draw for them on Wednesday, May 9.

Stash Report....

Used this week:  0 yards
Used year to date:  2.5 yards
Added to this week:  2 yards
Added to year to date: 96.25 yards
Net used for 2012:  -93.75  


I added nothing this week.  I did work in my sewing room this weekend, and I'm hoping to have a couple of finished quilts soon.  I should have some stretches of time coming up that would be perfect for bindings, if I could just get the quilting done.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen
