All "Song of Spring" blocks are finished...and the sale is OVER!


I finished the last two blocks of Lori Smith's "Song of Spring," and it was fun to pin them up and just look at them.

Each block finishes at 6 inches.  I am thinking about a swag border...

I have been so busy that I seem to do all my stitching in the car while waiting for my daughter or during meetings.  Thank goodness these blocks are quick and small...they make me feel like I am getting something accomplished.

Thanks to everyone who came to our sale!  Mary, Ola, and I worked very hard to get ready for it, so it was nice to have people show up and take stuff away!!

It was a good thing Mary had such a big basement...the weather was hit and miss.  The bins we had outside on tables contained fabric yardage in baggies.  Every time it started to rain, we would jump up and put lids on bins.

I caught Mary with the camera...I think Ola hid when I pulled it out and started taking pictures.  Then it got busy...

We had bins of loose fabric inside, along with all the books, patterns, scrapbook stuff, craft stuff, etc.  Here is half of the garage. Then Mary had her attached basement filled with a gallery of her finished quilts...I was so busy checking people out that I didn't make it in there until the 2-day sale was over.

If you want to have a stash reduction sale, do it with is so much more fun!  We each used a different colored sticker dot as we priced our stuff to keep things separated and Mary found a great garage sale "ap" to help us check people out.

It was a lot of work but certainly worth it!  It was fun to get to meet people, although it was a bit of a feeding frenzy on the first day.  I was working too hard to socialize!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)
