Stash Busting

Is it really June already? May went by in a blur of raindrops here. They say out of the last 60 days, 40 of them have been rainy. The inch of water in our basement confirms that. How I wish I could send some of it to those of you who are going through drought.
May was crazy busy, last Thursday Earl and I  cooked an appreciation dinner for 21 volunteers in our churches Children's department. Yard work, cookouts, and I have been trying to get through the yards and yards of fabrics I have in my stash. Time to stock the shop.  
I am having so much fun mixing and matching colors and patterns.  Who knew I had this much pink and green?  I hope to have some fun things for Hens in Daisies by the end of the week.
Now I'm grabbing an iced coffee and taking a quick walk in the cool morning garden before work.
 Any special plans for June?


  1. Morning Kathy,
    My lot's more sew!

    Love three colorful pouches...well done.

  2. Those are so darn cute! I love how you mix and match patterns. They're really adorable. I hope some pillows find their way into your shop(hint hint)!


    P.S. I made your sister's honey roasted zucchini last night - soooo good! It was a big hit with everyone!

  3. Loving the sneak peak of shop goodies Kathy!

    I am going to be working in the garden, finishing up so painting of furniture, working on getting my new Flea Market Makeovers blog up and running - which means trips to the flea market too!

  4. Yes, I do have special plans for June. They are to stalk your blog in hopes that you will have a giveaway with that cute little birdie bag in the front. That's about it though

  5. My plans for June? Keep mending after my recent shoulder surgery. And maybe clean and organize my sewing area so I can get to sewing again! Love your cute little bags. So cute! Just plain C.U.T.E.!!

  6. Those bags are absolutely darling! Makes me want to get out my sewing machine but alas I am tooooooooo busy with all my baking and personal care products for Farmer's Market. A very busy time of the year for me but I LOVE it. (Keeps me out of trouble! hehe)

  7. Cuteness all over the computer here! LOVE the bags, Miss Kathy! SEWWWW cute!


  8. Oh my gosh Aunt Kathy, I love the one closest to the front with the birds! Soo cute!

  9. Very cute! Love the ruffle tops!

  10. Cute cute cute!!! :o)
    I can't wait until you stock your Etsy shop!!! :o)
    I can hardly believe that June is here. So far I don't have any real specific plans, mainly finishing up projects that I already began. :o)
    I hope you are having a great week!!
    Sincerely, Trish

  11. Gotta love a fellow stash buster.... I'm doing the same only with my yarn. Amazing we are looking at the same colors today.

  12. Talk about cheerful looking creations!!! Beautiful, Kathy!

  13. Oh, you are so industrious! I love this bag in the foreground of the picture! I can't wait to shop, adorable!

  14. I just adore your mix and match. You are so good at putting things together that just take my breath away.
    June is softball for us for awhile..then..hoping things settle down to a sweet,long, hot summer. I love the heat when I can stay inside..;))

  15. per your usual! You just have a knack for taking little bits of nothing...and creating not just something...but something truly beautiful! Love you!!!


  16. June...hummmmm
    Maybe start some hand quilting and look for new quilt ideas!!

    Really like the bags....


Thank you for taking the time to say hello :)
