Sunday Stash and Stitching report, week 30

I've missed several weeks of stash reporting, since we've been away on vacation. We arrived home Friday evening, around 8 pm, parked the trailer in the driveway..... well, truth be told, our son-in-law Matt parked the trailer in the driveway. We removed the essentials, and the rest remains up there. We had a nice drive home, through some lovely country. We've never been to Eastern Ontario before, so it was nice to see it. There were several provincial parks that we passed on the way home that I would love to have checked out, but we were on the express to get home, so there were no detours, and no stops, other than gas. There are definitely advantages to traveling with a mobile kitchen and bathroom.
While we were away, we stopped at a number of shops that were participating in the Row by Row Experience. I had thought we got to four shops, but when I unpacked my purchases, I found there were five row kits. I think, once I get them together, it will be a fun momento of this summer's travels.
I've been working away at the last of the small rosettes for La Passacaglia. If I count correctly, I have nine left to do. I finished the second of these today, and then started another one.
 I'm going to leave deciding on the star points until I have all the centres done. That way I can get a better idea of colour balance. Here's a closer look at one of them.
So, now I have to come clean about all the fabric I bought while we were away. There are some large scale florals, for the Disappearing Four Patch swap Jannette and I are doing. There are the kits for the Row by Rows. Some greens I picked up because I thought it would be fun to do a quilt inspired by all the different greens we saw while on our hikes, paired up with light blue background to represent the sky. And some more Kona solids for the star points for La Passacaglia. I haven't got pictures of the fabrics.... sorry.

Used past three weeks:                          .6 yards
Used this year:                                   48.9 yards

Net stash added:                                 17.85 yards

So, now I'm going to finish off the evening with more slow stitching. Tomorrow is back to business again. I'm linking up to Judy's Fabric Report, Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching and Angie's WIPs Be Gone.


  1. Such lovely rosettes! I could probably make lots of those, but it's the putting them together that would be impossible for me :)
    Glad you had a fun trip!

  2. Love these rosettes. How big are they? The more I see of La Passacagalia the more tempted I am to make it!

  3. Wonderful rosettes, love your La Passacaglia so much. You are so far progressed already.

  4. Beautiful rosettes! Guess what I picked up when we went away for a few days? Large scale florals!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
