In: A few 1-2 yard pieces to use in projects.  Not pictured are a few more coming from Etsy shops. Yes, that’s a few of those Halloween prints I made all those projects with. But the stripe was out of stock, so I had to order it from an Etsy shop! And that black with color spots is for a back of a charity quilt. 


 

Out: Some bowl cozies, a block from leftovers and a table mat flimsy.

It’s been a rough week! I spent the first part of it in Evansville due to my Mom being in the hospital again, but she got sprung Friday! Then I was home for a day and half before we took off for camping with our friends. During the weekend we headed over to watch our friends’ kid play in a Semi State soccer game. They lost, boo. But at the end of the game it was determined that rain in the near forecast would impact our last night and morning at the camp, so we rushed back and packed up in a slight drizzle and came north to hang with ScientistGirl and ElectricGuy at their new house. Much warmer!!!

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

In: Gah! I need to stop buying. Good thing most of these are just Fat Quarters. The first photo is from Always In Stitches, the peachy one is the border fabric for EC’s quilt. The rolls are called orphans, usually 9″-12″ X WOF pieces. The strips are $.10 a piece! The 2nd photo is from the University of Sewing trailer that came to visit the guild on Monday. The last is from our Steals and Deals table at guild, those 3 purples in the front were ones I didn’t get last month, and couldn’t leave them on the table this month! I don’t like purple? LOL. 

 

Out: Basically nothing! That’s what happens when you make small items. Cut some more squares for another placemat. At sewing with the guild buddies I made my BOM for November and started piecing the feathered star from a patriotic fabric pull.

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

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.
