I did get the inner border on and I started working on border #2. They are pieced and I’ve got 2 sides on the quilt. I’m working on the other 2 sides this weekend. I didn’t get a chance to take a new picture but here’s me working in progress…
I made 2 more drawstring bags this past week. I like these better than the first 2 last time.
I changed the drawstring. #1 and #2 used the same material that is the primary fabric of the bag and it was pretty thick and hard to draw. So for #3 and #4 I used the secondary fabric. It came out much better but the channel was too big so I had to make big ties to prevent them from slipping through the channel. Next time I’ll make the drawstring a little bigger and the channel a little smaller. Right now I’ve got my sock projects in the bags. I am thinking of labeling them #1, #2, #3, #4 in order of priority and then pick up the one I want to work on… I don’t know. Right now I’m only working on 1 primarily and the other 3 as I feel like it. I like making bags as they are quick finishes and add to my usage! 🙂
For the fabric stash:
- Used this week: 1 yards
- Used year to date: 2 yards
- Added this week: 0 yards
- Added year to Date:0 yards
- Net USED for 2017: 2 yards
For the Budget:
I bought more needles this week. I’m trying to find out which needles I like the best. I got Hiya Hiya sharps DPNs in #1 and 1.5 and I got a 9 inch circular in Hiya Hiya sharps in #2. I really like the Hiya Hiya sharp DPNs. They are so smooth and I’m knitting up a storm on my magenta socks. I’m hoping to get to the heel on the second sock soon.
Spent this week: $35.10
Spent year to date: $148.69
Slow Stitching Sunday
And for Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy at Kathy Quilts, I plan to continue my work on A Rainbow Garden!
Here’s the pic I showed last week:
I spent all my time last weekend looking for Block 7. I moved stuff around a couple of months ago and I couldn’t remember where I put the kits for this BOM from 2013. I finally found them in one of the plastic bins. I’ve got Block 7s kit ready and today I plan to trace everything onto freezer paper. There’s a lot of tracing and I’m not sure I’ll feel like doing much more than that.
