Sewing – a whole day spent sewing – does it get any better than that? I was up at 6:30 and in the sewing room soon after that and now it’s 6:30 p.m. and I think I’m done for today. But I did finish the top I was working on.
It’s not exactly up on the design wall straight but it’s up there. I had to put it up sideways to get it to fit. I’ve got enough fabrics left so I can make a matching pillowcase to go with it (great for storing the quilt in when not in use) and it will probably be a graduation quilt next spring.
So that project definitely helped my numbers out since it all came from the stash. Hmm.. the design wall is empty – well except for all those loose threads stuck to it. Will have to go see what project needs to go up there next.
Used this week 6.5 (plus 3 yds I forgot to add in last wk) so total 9.5
Used year to date: 179
Purchased year to date: 139 .
Now there’s some barbequed ribs and sauerkraut that’s been slow roasting in the oven and it’s smelling awfully good so better go make the rest of dinner to go with it cause its making me hungry.
Tonight I hope to finish off the sock I’ve been working on – not many rows left – and get started on another one to match one of those lone socks I’ve got.
A great looking finish and a stash buster to boot!!
Looks great. I’m hoping to finish a sock tonight and maybe tomorrow I’ll mail off a package that’s way past due! 🙂
I love it!
