I have fabric to count

I sewed a project bag for a dear friend
in my knitting group, who is moving
away this week.

I used 1/2 a yard of fabric, so

Fabric used YTD: 27.5 Yards.

No new fabric in.

I nearly completed my fabric challenge
project for my city's Heritage celebration
next month...still needs quilting.

I am continuing to work on the
Trip around the World challenge
on Facebook.

(Yeah...the photo actually worked this time!)
What are you working on?
How's the stash busting going?

Stash Busting

Ah ha...I have sewn this week!

First time in 2 months.
I made 4 blocks for a charity quilt
my quilt guild is donating to the
Primary Children's auction (Utah).
I nearly finished the top for my
cities fabric challenge....
pictures to follow.
I completed my first 9 rows of
a Trip Around the World challenge.

(Argh...can't post a photo!)
I didn't finish anything, so I don't
count it in the stash busting.
Still at 27 yards busted!

Stash Report-15 Jun 2014 changes!

Still at 27 yards busted!
I am participating in a Trip around

Stash Report

No new finished projects.
No fabric purchases.
Number busted still at  27 yards!
I did begin a new project this week.
I joined
Brigitte Giblin's Trip Around the World Challenge
on Facebook.
Hand piecing a Trip Around the World Quilt
in the old traditional way.
It has been a great project to do as I
still sit at home recovering from surgery.
In other news....
I was registered for both classes I wanted
at the Utah Quilt Guild Fest
coming up in September.
The Fest is being held close by my
home, so it will be a quick 20 minute
drive to go to classes and the vendors mall.
I am really excited to go this year!
Do you have plans for a Fest or Classes this year?

I have spent the week detoxing
my body from the overload of
drugs and pain meds from surgery
3 weeks ago, so.....
No sewing!
My stash busting still stands at 27 yards.
I have thought about sewing a lot this week
as I lay in the recliner.
Ready to be back to sewing
and knitting
and back to my life.
How are you doing...projects....finishes?

Stash report AND the beginning of the 100 days of Summer

Two months later....long story condensed into a few lines.
Shoulder surgery that went different than planned...
Longer recovery...
Kind of planning daughters wedding...
Revamping some major parts of my life. are all caught up!
Now...onto the stash report:
Over the last two months, I have used about 20 yards
on 5 charity quilts (2 QOVS-3 Family Shelter)
Adding that to my March total,
I stand at used 27 yards.
Low usage...need to get back to the studio!
Lastly...100 days of Summer starts today
and ends on Labor Day (September 1)
I am feeling very motivated to get some
project and goals done and off the to-do list.
Some of my random goals and/or plans...
Wear a skirt every day during June.
Complete my Physical Therapy on my shoulder
No TV viewing  for entire month
Go to the Utah Shakespeare festival with my Husband.
Go camping at least once a month.

I am back...
After months of not posting...
Life got in the way...
I think there is finally a break in the roller coaster ride I call my life!
The main reason's I haven't posted:
1.New computer that still has problems
2.Health problems
3.Daughter getting married
The daughter getting married isn't really a problem...just a very busy time for the entire household!
So, here's my first stash busting report for 2014
Fabric used: 9 yards
Fabric purchased: 1.5 yards
Total busted:7.5 yards.
I did not set a specific goal of how many yards I wanted to use this year. I also will probably be only posting a monthly stash busting report.
How are you doing in your creating?

I actually sewed something!

After 2 months without a
studio/sewing place/uncluttered house,
my studio is finally finished!
Well...finished enough I
could move into it and function.
So, I sewed my granddaughters
Tinkerbell costume for Halloween.
It was glorious!
It felt so wonderful!
I loved sewing again!
Since it was not my
material, I can not count
it towards stash busting,
but, at least I was
able to create again!
This weeks goal:
1. More sewing
2. Learn how to get my photos
onto the blog.
3.More sewing.
What are your creating goals
for this week?

Lots to do...where is my list?

There is lots to do, now that I have
an established sewing area again....
after 2 months of not sewing...
yes, 2 months WITHOUT sewing!!
Unfortunately, the new studio
is in complete disarray right now.
Piles of boxes to organize
and bags of items to go thru and
put away.
here in blog land starting
tomorrow, so I had better
get super!
Since I have not sewn
a stitch in 2 months,
my stash busting numbers
have not changed at all.
I will have some
change by next week though,
I promise you
What are your sewing plans?
