Stash Report 8/5/18

Sewing Goals: 
All my projects are long term projects using scraps and strings.
1) New Project  - Piccadilly Circus by Kelli Hanken and Jo Kramer. It is featured in Quiltmaker September/October. It is string piecing to make star points and slab piecing for the centers. White background instead of black for a change. My goal is to make 1 full block this month.
2) Current Project  - Boxes of Strings by The Electric Abuela: 16 blocks made. Now, I  need to cut & draw 12 foundation pieces and cut & glue black triangles to each. My goal now is to make 5 this month

3) a PhD - Loosey Goosey 3" blocks: My goal now is to make 2 this month.

6) Stash Management/Organization
  • Limit purchases -Use Fabric Stash FIRST for all projects.

 Hopefully, the red wedding quilt will be quilted soon and I will be in the black by year's end.
 Sure does feel good to be sewing again. However sporadic!
  Wednesday, I have an appointment with the doctor to see what the next step is in my cancer journey. Hopefully, the cancer responded to the treatment and no surgery will be needed.
Lator Gators.

Design Wall 7/23/18

Design Wall:

I am working on Boxes of Strings and Loosey Goosey (BH's Wild & Goosey).
   10 BoS blocks have been made. I have a long ways to go!
My goal this week is 4 more and 2 more Loosey Goosey blocks. The LG blocks are just an unformed idea for a wall hanging!
  DD#4 is working on DGS#9's quilt. It is just a simple basket weave in burgundy and grey. She has misplaced the burgundy fabric and my Phaff is acting up.

Pouting

  Me-New has been pouting up a storm and giving me the stink-eye.  WHY?  Because I haven't posted a picture of her since she was a small kitten. 
  Then she saw pictures of Sadie(who looks like Me-New) and Smithy on their mom's blog. She seemed to like Smithy and wanted him to see how purrty she is.

7/19/18 Thursday Morning Wonderings

Outside my window... clear sky and a warm breeze.
I am listening to... Spirit typing on her computer.
One of my favorite things... hugs from children.
One of my least favorite things... falling out of the bed in the middle of the night. Ouch!
I am missing... DGS#9. 
I am planning... on visiting the doctor. First he wants a scan done.
I am remembering ... how nice it was when my studio was set up properly.
I am wondering...  how long my muse and mojo will stay away this time. Also energy.
I am thinking... about projects that have to be done soon.
I am super thankful... for my family and friends.
I am sewing on... Boxes of Strings and Loosey Goosey blocks.
I am deciding... if I want to try to attend the KS Retreat. First, I need to know when my doctor's appointments are.
My future includes... more doctors.
I am hoping... for the best news.
I am waiting impatiently... for normalcy to return.

Lator!
