It's been awhile, I know.  No excuses.

I had a bit of a scare and ended up in hospital in April, and it got me thinking about all of the quilts I have made and stored in the closets and under the beds, what am I going to do with them all!
My daughter, son and sister would probably take a few, but what about the rest? I've never thought of selling any of my quilts before, but maybe it's time to start parting with them.  But how?

And then there's my STASH!  Even though I haven't bought much new fabric over the past few years, my stash is out of control.  I try to use it as fast as I can, making one or two quilts a year, (which usually end up being stored in the closets or under the beds),  and I try to make one or two quilts for our guild's outreach program every year, but it doesn't seem to make a dent in it.

I remember when I was packing up Mom's apartment when she moved in with us, and I had to tackle her knitting room.  Mom was a prolific knitter, she had 3 knitting machines, and her closets were overflowing with yarns.  I remember thinking to myself that I didn't ever want my daughter to have to pack up all my fabric, needlework and quilting paraphenalia.  She's not a sewer and wouldn't have any idea what to do with it all, and heaven forbid that it all get tossed!

Hopefully I'll remain fit for a good few years and able to continue using up my stash, but I think it's time I try to find new homes for some of my quilts.

Here are photos of some of the smaller quilts I've made over the past few years, intending to publish the patterns, but never quite getting around to it! lol
