Trip Around the World-Row 23

I am currently on Row 23 of my
Trip Around the World project
(thru Bridgit Giblin Facebook group)
We were suppose to finish Row 30
last week, but I am behind.
I am very much enjoying the
relaxed hand sewing process.
Friends ask how much larger I am
going to make it. I don't know.
I haven't put a deadline on this
project. It will be finished when
I feel like it is.
Also, sewing with 2 inch squares,
it will take a very long time to
create a very large quilt.
What is your Slow Sunday Stitching?

Finally...some changes in my numbers!

I have a knit retreat with my local knit
group coming up soon.
I made 13 fabric project bags,
so each knitter will have a small
gift to carry her current knit project.
Used this week: 13 yards
Purchased this week: 10 yards
Used for 2014: 30 yards
I am continuing to sew on my
Trip Around the World project
I was suppose to finish Row 30
this last week, but I am just
beginning Row 23.
Sewing 2 inch squares, this is going
to take a while. I am not sure how
much more I am going to sew. It
is very relaxing and I am enjoying
the process of hand sewing.
This weeks goals:
Start/sew a QOV
Cut Rows 25-30 for TAW
Sew 4 Christmas Presents
(Library book bags for grandkids)
What are you current projects?

Slow Sunday stitching

This is my first time posting as
part of the Slow Sunday stitch group.
Sunday is my day of rest,
so slow stitching fits the day!
I am part of a group project
on Facebook who are creating a
Trip Around the World quilt
completely stitched by hand.
I started the project back in early Summer
while I was recovering from surgery.
Technically, I am behind...I
am suppose to be finishing out
at about Row 30, but am at Row 20.
The fabric I am currently using is a
gift fabric from another member of
the project.
We are also all using a red dot fabric
throughout the quilt.

Back in the swing of blogging

One of my goals for this next year period
is to blog more often, so I
think a stash report is the perfect
way to do it.
This week in: 2 yards
This week used: 1 yard
New total: back to 27 yards used.
I also want to start posting my sewing goals
for the upcoming week. I have seen
others do this, and it seems to keep
them motivated and accountable.
Sept 8-14:
1.Sew each day during (September) National
Sewing Month.
2,Sew 1 knit project bag (pink with brown bottom)
3. Cut out 5 more knit project bags.

4.Hand sewing on Trip Around the World
project on Facebook.

What projects are you working on?
