Stash report March 25, 2018

A visit to goodwill and I came home with some treasures. I found 2 wool skirts for rug hooking.  The light color I can easily dye any color I want or need for a prroject.

 I found some shirting, but really chuckled over a packaged quilt backing. Do you remember paragon? They were the go to place and name for women's crafts. Apparently, that included packaged quilt backings.

 This week, I included pictures of sorting through my Christmas stash. One comment from Ruth caught my eye. She mentioned having a panel that goes with one of my fabrics. I knew she needed it and might actually use it more than I, so I sent it off to her.  I feel lighter already.

Here is an update on my rug hooking project that I will work on in my slow sunday time. I started adding the background to make sure I would like it. I do like it and it is now good to go.
