Another row down.

This is for Sammie. Can you tell Sammie likes purple? And they are all purple not blue like the picture looks. You ladies would love Sammie. Besides being just the sweetest person you could ever meet she's a big time collecter of fabric. You just THINK you have a stash. I'll let you in on a little secret if you promise not to tell her husband. Sammie has a storage building just to house her excess stash. Not a little shed in the back yard mind you, but one of those offsite rental storage rooms. Boy wouldn't you like to spend an afternoon digging thru that? LOL!

Today's offbeat photo. In the little country subdivision where I live there are 7 small lakes. Ponds really but they call them lakes. Every year when the ducks migrate back and forth there always seem to be a few who decide maybe this would make a good year-round home so they stay. This little lake is right beside the mail boxes so often I'll sit and watch them for a few minutes in the evenings when I'm on my way home. I love it when they dive for whatever they're diving for and all you see is a duck butt sticking up out of the water. :-) Click on the photo so it comes up bigger and check out the second one from the left.

when does a stash become a store that's just not open to the public? I'm almost envious of a stash big enough to require off site storage!

Oh so cool - an entire storage unit full of fabric.

We have a fair number of ducks around here, it is always nice to watch them, esp. when they have their ducklings. I love your comment "duck butt" too funny.

I think I would paralyzed into making choices if I had that much fabric. How could you even begin to think about using it?

Anyway, I'm a fan of purple too. I like your purple row.

Have fin with the batiks. Your quilt sounds beautiful.

Vicky said...

Great picture! Your area is so beautiful - duck butts and Oreo cows! Never a dull moment. The row is great!

Carole said...

Nice row, I like purple! Storage for her stash hey! Hum.... does that mean she has to drive to go and fondle it? lol Thanks for the pictures. It's nice to get a glimpse of your world. I may just borrow your idea one day! lol Happy quilting!

I saw thoe purple blocks, and the name Sammie, and for a second I thought it was me ;-)

But my stash fits in my sewing room.

I may spend the rest of my morning daydreaming about a building sized stash, though!
