March Fabric stash report

The time is just flying....
I can not believe it is already the end of March!

My household, including myself,
have spent the good part of the month
sick with coughs and flu's,
so I am kind of glad to see the time go quickly!

Being sick, I spent quite of bit of
time laying around, which translated into
knitting and not sewing.

I did manage to do some cleaning
here and there too, so into the donation
pile flew some fabric and other things.

Fabric in this month: 0 yards
Fabric in during 2012: 0 yards

Fabric out this month: 8 yards
Fabric out during 2012: 22 yards

Slowly, but surely, I will reach my 100 yard goal!

How are you doing?

Forgot the Friday Finish post (again!)

I've been taking care of sick people
(myself included) this week,
so I just got a little knitting done.


Big Welt Stitch
and


Giant Welts

I have kept up on my goal
of knitting a block per week.

Now, if I could just get everyone
in this house healthy all at the same time.

Easter dress marathon with the Friday Finish

Skipped last week from posting my Friday Finish.
Not only was I still sick (going on 6 weeks now)
but my granddaughter had croup and a ear infection.
Not a happy house!
I finished 3 more knit blocks

Square to Square


Checkerboard


Garter Rib block
I also began the annual sewing of the Spring
dresses for all the granddaughters...5 this year!

Youngest, Miss M, was the first...


I love this Simplicity Pattern.
Used it with my daughters 25 plus years ago.
Used it so much I wore it out,
Purchased another copy when my
first granddaughter was born 7 years ago.

Miss E was next..


Same pattern, but instead of pleats
across the front I gathered it
and added a under skirt with a ruffle.

It's National Quilting day tomorrow....
maybe I'll switch up to finishing some
long overdue bindings.

Any plans for you?
