The first step in downsizing my quilter’s stash was to give a bunch to charity. Then, on Saturday, I held a quilter’s stash yard sale.
As I was setting things out, I was feeling melancholy. But then people came and bought fabric, and I felt great. There’s still so much left, that I’m having another sale this weekend, after I visit 2 or 3 quilt guilds and hand out flyers!

Several weeks ago my nephew Josh and I helped my mom lay out a quilt on the floor of the clubhouse at her apartment complex. This is an “Orange Peel” quilt, and my mom spent many years of her childhood in Florida, so she named it “Florida Sunshine”.
On Easter we took photos of the finished (GORGEOUS!) product. She wanted me to show it off here. I dare you to find a brighter quilt.
Here we are, Team Florida Sunshine:
It’s Spring Break for me and so Zach is using this opportunity to completely sand and refinish the hard wood floors downstairs. Here is a photo of him looking exhausted only 3 days into his labors, and a sneak peek of the floors, now sanded and puttied:
The good news is that I get to stay at my parent’s house and they get to have some quality time with the Boogedy. Here is my dad getting fed rice cracker snacks…this is the only time I’ve ever seen my father willingly eat peanuts:
My mom went outside and found a little friend for the Boogedy to examine:
And every night we get to sleep under the most glorious quilts ever made. This one is called Venetian Tiles my sister Jeaka made:
I topped that one with a coordinating “Woodland” throw my sister Marian made:
As the Boogedy says, “PECKY BOO!!”
