Design Wall Monday

This is the week I hope to get all the rows sewn together for Aboretum and this top completed. It has been on my design wall way to long!

Bonnie Hunter, Chilhowie in christmas colors was also quilted and will be ready for binding this week.

As I get ready to leave later this week for my niece's wedding, I hope to also get to this cute little halloween quilt cut out and started. Hope to work on it this week at my sewing group. Should be a pretty easy one to get together.

Have a great week and happy sewing!

Sunday Stash Report

It has been a busy couple of weeks here in Arizona. Joe and I just returned from a week long road trip to Cottonwood, AZ and then to Flagstaff. We took a hike through the Aspens in Flagstaff and visited the Lowell Observatory. The colors were beautiful on our hike, we saw the eclipse at Sunset Crater, and enjoyed our time at the Observatory seeing the stars and learning a little history. It was a fun trip to celebrate Joe's birthday!

Needless to say, not much sewing was done, with only a small finish. My easy fall tablerunner below. This will sit on our entry way table for a little fall color.

With a wedding coming up this next week, and family coming the begining of November, my sewing time is going to be limited. But I hope to get in a little time here and there as I still have two more UFO's to complete this year and a new Bonnie Hunter Mystery starting right after Thanksgiving.

Not much progress in using the stash!

 Used this week: 2 yards.
Used YTD: 146 yards.
Purchased this week: 1.5 yards.
Purchased YTD: 47 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 99 yards.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Design Wall Monday


The picture is a bit dark, but this is Arboretum taking up my entire design wall. I have about 25 more blocks to go and the sewing all the rows together. The blocks go pretty fast, I just need to carve out some time to get it done.

Also distracting me this week is this cute little table runner by GE Designs. A super simple design that uses a 5" charm pack. I am making mine out of an autumn charm pack that I have had for awhile. I needed another smallish tablerunner for a spot in my house.

Blocks are already made and will be putting it together this week and hopefully getting it quilted. Backing and binding are ready!

Have fun working on your projects!

Sunday Stash Report

October already! The year is flying by. I missed my posts last week, so this will be catch up.
Not too much sewing going on the past couple of weeks. I have been prepping applique for a couple of other projects, Flowers for my Wedding Ring and Vintage Valentine.

The top for Flowers for my wedding ring was completed last year with only the applique to go. I have been working on making all the applique pieces and hope to get them all down and ready for hand sewing this month.

Vintage Valentine is a BOM from Stitchin Heavin that was started this year. I am happy to say that I have been able to acutally keep up with this one, a first for me! I am prepping block #8, with #9 to be here around October 15th.

Nothing used this week and nothing added to the stash. I promise, finishes are coming soon!

Used this week: 0 yards.
Used YTD: 144 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards.
Purchased YTD: 45.5 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 98.5 yards.

Have a great week!
