Stash Busters!

This morning, before anything else, I met with my good
This is my new mug.  I have two others I had been using, but my aunt(a nurse practioner) told me if the finish on the inside of your cup starts to wear away, and you see black, it's time for a new one!  so this is my choice.  Yeppers, it's from a set that belonged to my mom.<3

Remember the magazine I bought last week, well, the first block is completed!

I'm happy with it, most of the points came out ok.  My new favorite quote is, "If it's still ugly, you didn't cut it small enough!"  I have no idea who came up with that one, but it's great!  The goal is to only cut one 1 1/2 inch strip from each fabric in my stash for this quilt.  You may see a fabric in more than one block, but can't be more than one strip.  I think it calls for 140 strips, or 5.8 yards...? Think I can make it ,  uhmmmm....sadly(or gladly?), yeah I think I can.  Lol!!

Basketball started this week, that means cathedral windows came out of hiding.  Wonder how much will get done this year?  More to come on that one. 

Do you have pet progect that only comes out at certain times of the year?

I love that quilt! When I saw it on the cover of the magazine I knew that I wanted to make it. Looks like you are off to a great start.
