Have yourself a little quilty Christmas!
8/15/2016

I put some of the blocks together and now I’m all done with the June and July kits.  I’m ready to get going on the August kit I picked up last week!

Here was my list last week:

  • Hampton Ridge – prep the backing … done
  • Celtic Solstice – continue working on these as my leaders and enders… done
  • Missing Ivy – head over to the LQS and buy white on white fabric.  Then, I can continue my work on step #14 … done.. I’m working on finishing Step #14 … 
  • Provence – continue working on the alternative blocks … not done
  • Spooky Halloween … Row 2, block 1 – continue to applique more pieces … done… but I’ve still got a lot of pieces before this block is finished
  • Have yourself a Quilty Little Christmas … Month 2: Block 3 and create my project page….  I finished the blocks but I haven’t gotten around to creating my project page… maybe this week!
  • Cross Stitch – For Bukid, work on row 5 … done

So this week, here’s my target:

  • Hampton Ridge – prep the batting … I want to get this on the frame this week
  • Celtic Solstice – hold off on this as Missing Ivy’s border prep is being worked on as my leaders/enders while I work on Spooky Halloween pieced blocks and Have yourself a Quilty Little Christmas
  • Missing Ivy – prep this border as my leaders/enders
  • Provence – hold off on this one
  • Spooky Halloween … Row 2, block 1 – continue to applique more pieces and get a pieced block done.  I’m tired of not getting anything finished for this quilt even though I’m working on it.  Handwork is so slow and I need to get a pieced block done so I feel like I’m making progress here.  I just picked up Row 4 so I’ve got pieced blocks I can work on in Row 3 and Row 4.
  • Have yourself a Quilty Little Christmas … create my project page and Month 3: block 1

I’m looking forward to a great week!

Moon Glow Finished! 7/31/2016

Moon Glow
Finished!
7/31/2016

Finally got a pic of Moon Glow all finished up.  I can’t for the life of me get a pic without it being all washed out.  😦  I’m going to have to pull out my real camera for this job and I don’t know when I’ll get to that.  Anyway, I’m taking this to my guild’s show and tell this evening.

Here was my list last week:

  • Hampton Ridge – prep the backing …  not done;
  • Celtic Solstice – continue working on these as my leaders and enders… done
  • Missing Ivy – Work on step #14 … started and I found that I need more of the white fabric.  I’m not sure where I went wrong but I need only a bit more.  I’ve looked everywhere for the original but I can’t find it so I’ll just go to my LQS and see what I can get that’s white on white.
  • Provence – continue working on the alternative blocks … not done
  • Spooky Halloween … Row 2, block 1 – continue to applique more pieces … done… 
  • Have yourself a Quilty Little Christmas … Month 2: Block 3 and create my project page. … not done
  • Cross Stitch – For Bukid, continue working on the 4th row. ….done. I actually finished row 4 so I need to get going on row 5. 

So this week, here’s my target:

  • Hampton Ridge – prep the backing
  • Celtic Solstice – continue working on these as my leaders and enders… done
  • Missing Ivy – head over to the LQS and buy white on white fabric.  Then, I can continue my work on step #14
  • Provence – continue working on the alternative blocks
  • Spooky Halloween … Row 2, block 1 – continue to applique more pieces
  • Have yourself a Quilty Little Christmas … Month 2: Block 3 and create my project page.
  • Cross Stitch – For Bukid, work on row 5

I’m looking forward to a great week!

Missing Ivy Step 13 9 patches for the border... 7/26/2016

Missing Ivy
Step 13
9 patches for the border…
7/26/2016

I was able to get step 13 finished for Missing Ivy.  These are a bunch (close to 50) 3-1/2 inch 9 patches.  Only 2 more official steps to get through so this top will hopefully be finished by the time I’m done quilting Hampton Ridge. 🙂

Spooky Halloween Row 2, Block 1 ...in progress... 7/25/2016

Spooky Halloween
Row 2, Block 1
…in progress…
7/25/2016

Here was my list last week:

 

  • Moon Glow … attach the binding … working on it.  I’m about halfway done. 
  • Celtic Solstice – I’ve got a number of individual rows done for Block B.  I think it’s time to put them all together and see how many rows I still need to prep.  Hopefully I’m pretty close to being done with the individual rows and I can start working on putting those blocks together soon.
    • 35 blocks are done and ready to be put together.  I need 61 so I’m about halfway through.  I’ll keep plugging along and putting the little rows together as leaders and enders while I work on the other stuff. 🙂
  • Provence – pull it out and figure out what I need to do next.  According to my notes, it looks like I’ve got one block left and then the alternative blocks.  If that’s the case then I would like to finish the last block.
    • finished the last block.
  • Spooky Halloween … Row 2, block 1 – applique
    • appliqued down a few pieces
  • Have yourself a Quilty Little Christmas … Month 1: Block 2 and 3 and create my project page.
    • Block 2 is done.  I posted a pic last Wednesday.
    • Block 3 – started this block but it required mini rickrack which I don’t have.  I emailed the instructor and she brought some to the first class (which I missed).  She offered to bring me some to the next class.  I accepted since I don’t have mini rick racks in my stash.  I have large rick rack that I use when I make baby quilts.
  • Raining Cats and Dogs … hand quilt …
    • I held off last week as I wanted to get the binding on for Moon Glow.
  • Cross Stitch – For Bukid, continue working on the 4th row…. done…. worked a good bit but the 4th row is not yet done. 

So this week, here’s my target:

  • Moon Glow … finish attaching the binding.  
  • Celtic Solstice – continue working on these as my leaders and enders.
  • Missing Ivy – Work on step #13 – the borders
  • Provence – start the alternative blocks
  • Spooky Halloween … Row 2, block 1 – continue to applique more pieces
  • Have yourself a Quilty Little Christmas … Month 2: Block 1 and 2 and create my project page.
  • Cross Stitch – For Bukid, continue working on the 4th row.

I’m looking forward to a great week!

Stash Report – Week 25, 2016

 

Happy fathers day

And now for the numbers:

For the fabric stash:

My guild met on Monday and I received 27 strips of black and white fabric.  I’m pretty sure the colorway was chosen to complement the yellow strips we swapped a couple of months ago.  So that’s about 1.875 yards added.  I’m in the final stages of quilting Moon Glow.  When I get back from vacation I plan to finish it up, get the binding and label on and count these yards USED.  Until then… I’m still barely in the black.

  • Used this week: 0 yards
  • Used year to date: 34 yards
  • Added this week: 1.875 yards
  • Added year to Date: 25.375 yards
  • Net USED for 2016: 8.625 yards

For the Budget:

I joined another quilty project at my LQS called Quilty Little Christmas.  I enjoy doing projects with my local quilty group.  But it’s taking time.  I asked my daughter to help with this project.  Since we’re away on vacation for the rest of June, this project will have to wait until we get back in July.  That means we’ll already be behind but hopefully we’ll be able to catch up when we get back.  I also still need to get the book.  Here’s the damage:

Spent this week: $40.25

Spent year to date: $3,417.71

For the yarn stash:

I’m working on my purple socks but they’re not finished yet…

Used this week: 0 yards

Used year to date: 300 yards

Added this week: 0 yards

Added year to date: 0 yards

Net Used for 2016: 300 yards

And for Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy at Kathy Quilts, I plan to work on A Rainbow Garden again today!  Here’s what it looked like last week:

A Rainbow Garden Block 5 unfinished 6/12/2016
