Yet again not a completion. But watch out for my numbers next week is all I can say!!

Stash Report, Week 14

I was able to finish the 4th Kid's Komfort quilt this week. My guild meeting is Monday and I want to turn them in. I am on a no buy diet this year and I am doing great. I did make a trip to JoAnn's last night for some bleached muslin to back a quilt. I am going to start quilting on it today and see where I am by next week's report. I am seeing my sister this week and will get her measurements in order to start her dress. I am hoping to have it finished so she can wear it for Easter. Looks like I am going to chained to my sewing machine for the next several weeks. Yeah for me!!

It has been awhile

It has been awhile since my last post. I really enjoyed my staycation and I got a lot of sewing done. Sewing has gone down hill from there. I do get to do a little hand piecing of  my Grandmother's Flower Garden while I am on the phones waiting for callers to find the answers to my questions. Last week we had computer issues company wide and it effected mostly the work at home people. I spend 3 days in the office. Call centers can be very loud. Not everyone uses their inside voices. I took Monday off and they finally got me fixed and now I am happily working at home once again. I have been working on yet another Kid's Komfort quilt. 


This is the baby quilt for baby Lily from next door. I dropped it off last night and it was a big hit with everyone. Mom and dad were amazed and Lily enjoyed cuddling in it. And the good news is that they are not moving after all and Brandon will still cut both our yards this spring and summer. Yeah!!

I try and do a little bit every morning before work and on my days off. I am finding such joy in using my stash. I have a bit of it in a rubber maid tote and I sewing and sorting at the same time. I also have to work on the April Kid's Komfort quilt. I want to have another quilt for the guild meeting the first Monday of April.

Updates

I am in the middle of my eight day staycation. I have gotten quite a bit of sewing done. No pictures yet. I have finished quilting the baby quilt for the baby next door. I will put the binding on today. I have made several blocks for my sister's car quilt. Picnic time is coming and she and the kids need a car quilt for their summer adventures. I have made 4 walker bags for the nursing home. And I will be making my living room curtains today.

I have been to a play with my mom and spent the entire day with my sister in Columbus. Went to a Racino and a casino and came home with money. We went to quilt shop just before closing time and I did not buy a thing. I am on a strict no buy diet and I need to stick to it.

I have four more days of sewing and I hope to get lots done and use up a bunch of my stash! No pictures yet and I have made a real mess of my dining room/sewing area. It will  be cleaned up by the time I go to work on Wednesday.
