Stashbusting Report

I spent 24 years following my husband from US Army postings all over the world - 22 moves in 24 years, so my fabric stashes were constantly being purged.  Now I have been in OK for almost 11 years raising crops and animals, so have had little time for quilting.  But there is a shining star in every adversity.  My Lupus has worsened, so we are downsizing the farm work and I am upsizing the quilting projects -- hooray!  
Check my comment in Liz's stashbusting report to see my present projects.  I read all the reports weekly to keep my stashbuilding impulses in check.  Thanks for your help.


  1. there's something about men not wanting to sleep under flowers. And there is simply nothing better than a border collie!

  2. Stashbusting is something I've always found to be very freeing and difficult to do :)

    I also have lupus, I was diagnosed around 16 years ago.

  3. Ok what's happening to make your Lupus worse? Or is that just how it happens? How long have you had it and how did you figure out you had it? Lot's of questions from your cousin! blessings, marlene

  4. To Lori in South Dakota: Thanks for reading my blog and leaving a comment - and do you want a very nice female Border Collie? I noticed on your blog that you had gone to the birds.

    To Juli: I'm really sorry to hear that you also have Lupus. It certainly curtails my gardening and animal husbandry. I lurk around the farm from shadow to shadow.

    To Marnie: Too many years horseback riding and working in the greenhouse in blazing sunlight. The Sun hates me! Have had it since a teenager. Second Sister has serious Scleroderma and I have light Scleroderma and Lupus. First symptoms of Lupus were rashes and welts after a day in the sun. And now everyone knows why we keep the family skeleton in the closet -- there's no sun in there.
