Bloghop #1 of 2013

What was my biggest accomplishment of 2012?

Well  I would have to say organizing all my magazines into plastic zip bags in order by name and then in order by date. Also then organizing all my patterns into a large filing drawer alphabetically and also numerically for instance if I have multiple patterns from the same company such as PS. Or Cricket Collection.

What was my fav stash addition? How will I use it this year?

My favorite stash addition by far would be when I attended the Indy sewing expo in August. Rosewood Manor's Karen Kluba had her things all set up in a space.I already had one pattern of hers ...Flowers in the Crannied Wall. I love all the charms she uses and I love how they are based on quilt blocks. I got many patterns my husband spoiled me. I got Old Glory which came with dyed linen, Halloween Sampler...which is lots of fun. Halloween is a colorful holiday. I love fall. Also purchased was Oh Little Firefly, Honey Bees Quilt Sampler, and American Flag Sampler. They are all so gorgeous and amazing. I worked on Old Glory and Halloween Sampler last year. I would like to finish both this year as they are on my wips challenge from BAP-Attack. I got a video of Karen too explaining the creation of the American Flag Sampler as it was her first but I have to first upload it to YouTube. I will then put a link to the video in this blog.Visit all the blogs in this round of the Stitching the Night Away Stitching Blogger Blog Hop:

  6. Wow! It really sounds like you hit the jackpot at the Indy Sewing Expo! It always feels good to organize, doesn't it?
