Stash Report 2012 ~ Week 37

I got some sewing done this week.  I'm so easily distracted, my sewing room err studio is such a horrible mess.  It desperately needs to be picked up and organized, I do so much better when things are organized - I like it neat, with things put away.  I started a different project that I had not planned on, an idea that just sorta came to me.  Not the project I wanted to get going but similar.  I now need to decide if this should be three small wall hangings or one large one.   When I get more done I should be able to decide.  Good news is nothing in and again nothing finished, so nothing out but progress made.

Have you seen these "Swatch Buddies"?  It is a reusable fabric swatch fan kit.  There are refills available too.  I pick up one at the store to try.  I've had the different types of books, cards and what not.  What I liked about the Swatch Buddies is you can write information on the label that is attached to the back of each card and attach the fabric to the front.  I can see where someone like myself might need several of these.  There are 48 cards on each swatch fan kit.

Stash Report 2012 ~ Week 36

I did get some sewing done this week  - eek! does mending count?  guess not.  I get some other embroidery started, but nothing finish yet.  So, nothing to count out.  I thought I hadn't purchased anything this week, but then surprise - surprise, part of an order  I placed in March came. Fifteen beautiful fat quarters of Sapphire Sea Silk Dupioni.  Ever hopeful this will be a better week and next week there will be more to report.

New FO's for August 2012

For August I went to Idaho to take a advanced class with Claudia  Dinnell, "Digitizing Large Redwork Style Designs for Multi-Hooping".   Oops!   As it turns out this is really a two day class she was presenting in one day, thinking more toward beginning and intermediate digitizers.  But we did spend some time with the advanced part of the class, enough to make me smile.  I had homework that would normally been finished in the second day of class and I'm OK with that.  I'm almost done with the digitizing,  now I want to find another image(s) to add to the wall hanging.  If I don't find something I'll just add more swirls I think.  What do you think?

Go on over to Barbara’s blog Cat Patches and see the new August projects that everyone has started.

Stash Report 2012 ~ Week 35

I'm back on the band-wagon - so to speak.  I've been missing for awhile, we took a "Road Trip" from the west coast to the east coast and back home again on another route.  I had my own personal shop-hop.  My dear hubby makes sure I get to stop at all the quilt/fabric shops of my choice that are close to our route.   I didn't always buy something at each shop, didn't always even buy fabric, maybe a book, pattern, magazine or gadget instead.  I've put away most of what I purchased on the trip but I didn't get it counted exactly - so for here I'll say it was about 15 yards total.

This week I added these fun Handbag Panels from Benartex Fabrics.  I saw them at BU made up with lots of quilting, embroidery and stitching embellishments.  Generally I don't like printed panels but seeing the finished project made me change my mind.  Both of these bags are much cuter than these pictures.
