Sunday Report

Sewing Stats
Fabric In: +3.90
Fabric Out: -2.24
Net Fabric: +1.66
Fabric YTD: +44.13
Spending YTD: 2252.49

In: A little. I needed to use a $5.00 credit, so I went to get some basting pins. And then picked up some batting to make microwave bowl cozies, and then stopped to look at remnants, and then why not buy 3 get 2 free on thread! So, my $4.99 package of pins cost me $26.00! I also wanted to pick up an orange Glide thread for future use, but couldn’t decide on the right orange, so bought a black instead. Oh, and 2 yards of fabric. 

Out: I used up almost every last piece of my Halloween Trio! Got a start on the Miranda Day Bag tutorial I am videoing for a SAL with guild members.

Got 2 charity quilts done for guild friends. I have 1 more to go before I am done for the year. Then next year I think I will focus on baby quilts. My frame just doesn’t accommodate anything over 50″ easily, and I am tired of shifting the quilts. I definitely think Santa needs to bring me a new 10′ frame! LOL

In: Nothing!

Out: Nothing, due to that boo-boo from last week.

And that’s my week! Link parties in the sidebar, come join the fun.

Update: Diva is feeling better, she just did too much going into work on Friday. Too much walking around and not enough hydration. But the only “clean” bathroom* she is able to use is across a PARKING LOT! Which sees a lot of SEMI TRAFFIC! Grrr. I am not happy with the situation, but she won’t make waves. I have considered calling the health dept.

*the closet bathroom is used by factory workers and truck drivers, and most of them have not grown up with indoor plumbing, the proper use of toilet paper or proper hygiene.


A knitter, sewist, quilter, mom, wife, and doodle lover!, but not necessarily in that order. Just ask my family, they'll tell you who comes first. Psst, it's the doodles!

  1. Ugh on the bathroom issues for Diva! I must have missed the details of your boo-boo. Hope it’s healing well. It’s a twin of my finger in 2013 when I cut it with a new knife! I enjoy your in and out recap. I’d love to have room for a 10 foot frame too!

  2. Yikes on the bathroom situation for Diva, and the stitches in your thumb! Hope you’re both doing better. You’ve gotten a lot done this week, and I love seeing your new stash additions, too!

  3. I understand Diva’s issues with the bathrooms. I had preterm labor many years ago. She needs to hydrate! So important. I ended up on bed for 5 weeks. I wish her all the best….you too with that finger injury! Despite everything you have been quite busy with so many gorgeous projects.

  4. Ouch! That finger looks sore. Fabulous Halloween runner and I must say, the charity quilt on the frame is lovely. Gorgeous pops of colour. Hope your finger heals quickly and you are once again stitching away.

  5. Lots of progress here and how exact you are with your stash. Amazing!
    Sad sore finger Chris. I avoided a near accident with my rotary cutter. It cut into my fingernail and part of the top of my finger. The fingernail slowed it down, I figure, if not it would have been worse. I’m extra careful now.

    1. Thanks Jocelyn! Eek! I’ve been there before, but thankfully I didn’t cause too much damage with the mandolin, it just needed a few stitches because it was deep. > >

Cat got your tongue?
