Sunday Stash

Well it was a bit of a quiet week here this week, which included me spending 6 hours in a local emergency department today before being diagnosed with a nasty chest infection. More anti-biotics and asthma medication to sink a large elephant.

Anyway, I did get a few little surprises during the week just gone.

This was a Bright Novelty 5" Charm swap that I went into to.  My charms were the green frog material. These were going to go straight into my stash, but then Kristy from over at Quiet Play is having a Polaroid Block swap which I think some of these would be perfect for!

Not crafty I know - but I just wanted to share this beautiful bunch of flowers that I got from our next door neighbours for looking after their little girl during the week. They look lovely in front of Mister W's art work.

I also managed a little trip into Spolight to get some Flat Fats and some yardage to do The Very Merry HST Block of the Fortnight with Alyce B over at Blossom Heart Quilts. I am a little somewhat behind - with the next block being released this Tuesday.  Oh Well.  I am thinking this quilt would make a perfect present for one of my Aunts for Christmas this year.

I also managed to grab a metre of this gorgeous nativity fabric from a FB destashing group. It is going to go perfectly with the Nativity stichery quilt pattern that I found in a Homespun Magazine a couple of months back now.  It will eventually be for my MIL for Christmas - but in the next year or so.

The Nativity Scene Stitchery Quilt pattern as seen in the Homespun mag.  Can't wait to get started, just waiting for my big embroidery hoop stand to come up from the farm so I can start.

And last but not least I wanted to share a gorgeous thing that my hubby did for me yesterday whilst I was cooped up in bed and he had taken the kids shopping to get out of the house.

The latest Homespun Mag! Unfortunately I have already read it front to back and vice versa, as well as covered it in a good layer of drool.  Now only to find time to raid my slowly growing stash, to make those adorable kitties on the front cover.

LOL - As I recap on my crafty week that was, it really wasn't as boring as I had thought.

Anyway, as usual, I am linking this up to The Sunday Stash over at Finding Fitfh.  Fiona also has an extra incentive this week - if she can get 10 or more people to link up - she will give away a gorgeous charm pack of  Kate Spain's 'Serendade'This would be a brilliant addition to anyone's stash.


  1. Oh hope you are feeling better soon Kelly!!

    Love the new additions to the stash - the planned nativity quilt is gorgeous!

    How nice of your hubby to pick you up a quilting magazine - very thoughtful!

  2. Sorry to hear you were unwell Kelly! But looks like you still had a good week. I'm looking forward to receiving my novelty charm squares! :) love Your son's artwork :)

  3. Man that's a long time to spend at A & E but best to have medical have intervention if you have underlying asthma. I like those green flat fats and like you I have not started my first Merry BoF either. Nice to have you in the draw today.

  4. There are some nasty bugs around at the moment, I too had a snotty weekend! Love your collection, it should make for some great creations!
