And the winner of the Lame Blogger Award goes to... Me!
I realize I've been completely absent this week, but I've either been too busy to blog or to sick to. I hosted an all day sew-in on Wednesday for my quilt bee and spent the days before hand getting ready and the day after recuperating and putting things back in order. I spent a busy and productive day Friday in my sewing room but have been dealing with a migraine since then. (The two aren't related, just coincidental.) My head has finally eased up enough for me to try and post my stash report.
The only thing I managed to finish this week is a table topper (or small wall hanging). It's the Charlotte pattern from the book 3 Times the Charm! There are 7 patterns in this book all using one Charm Pack and a small amount of yardage. This book is written by the fabulous ladies behind Me & My Sister Designs. I love that they actually show each of these patterns made up in 3 different fabric choices. I'm calling this little quilt Holly Jolly and it used 1.75 yards for the top.

You know, I think it's still possible I can break even by the end of the year.
I have a lily out on the deck that has bloomed like crazy this summer. I probably got a good 15 blooms on this one plant and I just LOVE the smell of them.

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
