Premier Home Cotton for a striped short sleeved Sophie

OK, a little yarn knit and a bit more added. But it’s for a good cause. My cousin will be welcoming a granddaughter soon so a knitted sweater needs to happen ASAP! Shower is Dec 3rd in Virginia, where I won’t be, so it needs to be knit quickly and mailed even quicker. Will I meet my deadline? Who knows. More important, will the solid color cover the yardage I need? 3 month size says 180 yards, I have 140. Fingers crossed.

Fabric This Week: Do I have to confess?

Fabric In: 6.625 yards
Fabric Out: 0 yards
Net Fabric In/Out: +6.625 yards

Argh!!! It doesn’t help that I was gone, so no sewing happened. And then I come home and go shop for more fabric? Well, again, the intent is for a good cause. I need flannel for a pillow for the JG’s BF. And then some FQ’s jumped in the cart, and, oh I need some neutrals that are more white than cream, and look at that striped remnant, and well, might as well pick up these fillers!!!

Year to Date

Fabric In: 44.25
Fabric Out: 33.75
Net Fabric In/Out: +10.5

Just when I was getting close to zero!!! But for the most part the fabric above is going into something. Obviously the flannel for a pillow, the bright group has no plans as of yet, but I am seeing a fun Christmas wall-hanging for some reason. The plaid might not make it in the final product. The neutrals are for some pillows I want to make. And just maybe that bright group will make it into one of the pillows. The diagonal stripe is just because, a 5/8 yard remnant that rang up at $1.87!! And the last group are more for filling in, although both of the blues will likely make it into bags of some sort, but not together.

Bag It 2017, Christmas 2017, One Monthly Goal, Quilting, Sewing

Bag It #20

I am playing along with Elm Street Quilts Bag It 2017. This is bag 20/23.

 

I used the same fabrics when I made this Open Wide Bag for Diva Girl. I didn’t have any of the teal left so grabbed some aqua to use for the zipper facings. Just needed a pop of color since the inside, outside, and binding used the same color of fabric. Of course I added a contrast snap for another pop of color!

The end is near!! 3 more bags and I am done. Even though I already have ideas for more bags to come, I am not pushing for them to be Christmas present once I get the last items sewn for gift giving. It will just be a sew when the whim takes me. I have a Christmas wallhanging I want to get to!! And maybe a table runner for winter. Plus a Christmas wallhanging I just need to bind and it will be done already.

Bag It #19

I am playing along with Elm Street Quilts Bag It 2017. This is bag 19/25.

 

I used the remaining Fat Quarter of Batik fabric I had left from the Open Wide Bag I made. And the zippers were a hodge podge of colors from the stash. I could have gone and bought 3 pink ones, but I think the 3 colors make it more interesting.

Now 2 more roll-ups left to finish off. And add 2 more bags to the list! I forgot about some girlfriend’s of some nephews who will be joining us. Argh!
