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 organized...fast!
 
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?

I'm here..still...even on a Friday!

I normally work on Fridays,
so I have not been posting on
"What's on the Needle".
 
But...today I am off...(happy dance)
 
So....
 
I have completed 2 scarves (for me)
and 1 shawl (for charity) in the last
month of knitting.
 
Currently working on a cowl.
 
Unfortunately, no photos.
 
This is a new computer for me,
and I have not figured out how
to get the photos from my phone
to the computer.
 
What are you working on?

Stash Report-Sep 8th

No changes.

Again.

Studio still not moved.

I haven't sewn in forever.

Frustrated.
 
Still holding at 34 yards
of a 100 yard goal.

Stashbusting Report

My life is a little crazy right now.
 
Moving my studio from an upstairs
finished room to the unfinished
basement of my Home.
 
 
Crazy disorganization!
 
 
Batting and yarn (and flannel and other fabric)
that were stored in the closet are now in the front room.

 
The studio is now going to be the
Office/Exercise Room.
Computer has found it's way into the closet.
 
So...
 
No sewing...
 
Stash report is still the same...
 
34 yards of a 100 yard goal.
 
I better get my new studio set up....fast!
 
How are you doing?

Stash Report

This will be the Summer of no blogging for me...
 
I am only posting about every 4-6 weeks.
 
When everyone starts back to a regular
school schedule in about 3 weeks, I will
hopefully get back to a more productive
schedule myself!
 
In terms of sewing...finishing many, many
(many) QOV tops for a friend here in Utah.
The state is opening two VA Homes, and
QOV is going to need lots of quilts.
 
So with the donation of two QOV this past
week, my numbers stand at:
 
Fabric out this week: 12 yards
Fabric in this week: 3 yards
 
Total stash busted fabric YTD: 34 yards.
 
Sad total, I know. I am going to sew, sew, sew
like crazy for the next few months. I exceeded
my 100 yard goal last year, I can do it again this
year too!
 
How are you doing?

Stash Report

I am SO close to finishing
multiple projects....and I do not
count my fabric in the "used"
category until a project is finished....
 
So...no changes.
 
Still at 25 yards used of a 100 yard goal!
 
And I have not purchased any fabric....
 
I need to start setting goals and staying
accountable to those goals, so...
 
This week:
 
Sew on borders on Scrappy Star QOV top

 
Buy/make backing for QOV top
 
Make binding for QOV top
 
Get QOV top over to quilters
 
Vacuum & dust studio
 
Sew yarn bag for gift (by Saturday's gift exchange)
 
How are you doing with your sewing goals?

On the Needle

Wow...did not realize how long I have
NOT posted here in blog land.
One month can go so quickly! 
I have been working most Fridays,
so I keep missing the posting time.
 
So....

This is a finished shawl I donated to
a friends Prayer Shawl Ministry.
It was crocheted using Homespun
in the color called Fiesta. I still have
3 skeins of the Fiesta. May do another
shawl (knitted) for her group.

 
When you donated your first shawl,
my friend gives you this cute little
knit pin as a thank you!
 
This is one of my two current
knit projects...knitting another shawl.
Not sure if I am going to keep this
one for myself. I really like the
blue color from Caron.

 
My other knit project is my first
sock...it's going very slow...no photo.
 
What are you working on?
