I have been busy lately mostly with hand sewing.  Kerry's Quilting has me busy and I'm loving every bit of it.  I now have all the rick rack that is the flower stems of Krazy Kookoos done.  Each one of those stems took nearly an hour to sew down...of course some of that time was intermittently interrupted by KoKo.  When he wants attention there is no sewing!  He has to sit right on the spot I'm trying to sew.  Oh but I love my fur baby =^.^=.  Eyes on Krazy Kookoos still need to be sewn on.  I'll have a bunch of green eyed kookoos soon!  Kool Krystals sits ready for hand sewing too.

The sewing that I have been doing has been on Quilt Carry Bags.  I'm brushing up on the instructions as I will be giving a workshop at Paradise Sewing next Sunday, May 31st to make it.  Mom will be in town then at helping me.  If you are in the area and interested in having one for your own call them and join us.

I hope that you are enjoying your Memorial Day and remembering the many who made it possible.  Enjoy your week ahead.  I'm hoping mine goes by swiftly because Mom is coming to visit arriving Friday.  I haven't seen her since September although we talk nearly every day; it is not the same as being with her.

Sunday Stash Report, May 24, 2015

A little late with this post, but one that is important to keep me accountable!  DH dropped me by Beverly's in Clairmont for that dark piece that is blue for the binding of Kool Krystals.  This project by Bonnie Hunter called Scrap Crystals was made in a workshop with her late last year.  I just picked it up from Kerry's Quilting on Friday.  The binding has already been prepared and machine sewn in place.  More time to sit in front of the television with DH and very soon Mom!

The other three pieces are all FQs that will soon go into my Komatose project.  Komatose is Bonnie Hunter's Lazy Sunday.  So this week there is another enhancement.  Overall though I'm doing very well using my stash.  I'll be counting a couple of Quilt Carry Bags soon.

Nothing this week on my Design Wall.  All my work has been on my lap.  I'm in the process of sewing down the rick rack on Krazy Kookoos.  (Design by Buggy Barn called Bird Brain.)  I have many of them done now.  It is an easy process just a lot of turning the project around to get the best angle for the hand sewing.  Once the rick rack is secure the button eyes come next.
