Time flies!

This summer has just flown by so quickly!
I have missed blogging for weeks now.
For my stash repost, I did do some sewing
that I can count towards the used side. I
sewed a dress for granddaughters birthday.
Used during July: 1.5 years
Total busted: 14 yards
Sad number, I know, but in the next few
weeks, I will (hopefully) have numerous
projects coming together at the
same time. My numbers should at least
double, if not triple!
I have been busy knitting. I am still really
new to knitting, so any time I finish
something, it's a pretty big deal for me!
Here is my first lace shawl, finished 2 weeks ago.
The pattern is called Old Shale Shawl, which I found it
on Ravelry . I learned how to knit two together,
yarn over and the Russian bind off method.
It will be a gift for my sweet neighbor, when
the weather starts to cool in the Fall.
My projects for the next couple of weeks:
1. Flannel baby blankets for a friend who is expecting
   twin boys any minute.
2. Four quilts for charity to be tied at my
Church. They will be donated to a local
family shelter thru the Utah Quilt Guild.
3.Back to school clothes for the grand kids!
What are your sewing plans?
