Stash Report

Image result for july 4th clip art vintage  Happy Fourth of July!!!!

I had a lovely visit with my sister this week.  I talked until all hours of the night.  I miss her already.

So I thought I would catch up.

Fran and I went to a quilt shop and a few yarn shops.  I did find some background fabric that I wanted to add to my stash.  I have a few machine embroidery quilts in mind and wanted to be prepared with some choices.

Fabric in this week:  14.5 yards
Fabric out this week:  6.5 yards. Backing and binding for two quilts
Fabric in YTD:  63.5 yards
Fabric Out YTD:  60.5 yards

Eat Sleep Knit Challenges 2015

This will not be the first time I have mentioned my love affair with Eat Sleep Knit (ESK) and their Yarnathon.  I am a proud member of the Cowlette Team and I have completed several of the KAL.  You can see these projects and others on my Ravelry page.

I haven't told the Big Guy yet but I want to plan a trip to Georgia so I can visit the shop!  I will  let you know how that works out.  But for now I am very happy with shopping on line.

I just received my latest box of loveliness.
In the back row is some fun multi colored yarn to make an Owl quilt for the crochet badge.  The two skeins on the front row, left side are for socks.  The middle two are for a scarf for someone for Christmas and the last 3 are for a shawl.

Another finish for the 2015 Finish Along challenge. 
I will have some significant yardage to report later this week.  The first time in a very long time

A Finish!!!

I have been on a roll!  Our guild had a little challenge and I just finished binding it.  I have been participating in the 2015 Finish A Long with the hopes I would finish stuff.  In case you didn't guess I love bright colors.  I need to get this ready for Wednesday's link up.

Design Wall Monday

I seem to have gotten my sewing desire back.  I have finished one top and backing.

And have the blocks for another quilt up on my design wall.
I am feeling rather productive!! I am headed over to Judy's to see what others are doing.

On the Needles Friday on Saturday

I finished my Aran block for June. I am having a problem getting a consistent size on my blocks.  It will be a challenge to put this project together.
I added a few more rows on my mitered square blanket.  Progress is very slow but I am plugging along.

Yarn report

I seem to have been on a yarn buying frenzy.  I had promised myself that I could only but yarn for a specific project.  But I have gotten a little caught up helping my ESK team the Cowlettes.

Yarn in this week:  5223 yards
Yards out this week:  0 week ( I am knitting but haven't finished anything!)
Yarn in YTD:   18182 yards
Yarn out YTD:  2366 yards

The skeins below I picked up at my LYS.  The are Mrs. Crosby's Hat Box and Train Case.  I am going to make shawls from both these color ways.  I have a need to make sure my LYS stays in business and I feel duty bound to help.

 The yarn in the back row is for a darling crochet owl blanket.  I am not much of a crochet person but I want to take one for the team.

The yarn in the front row from left to right:
  2 skeins of sock yarn because I really like it and I go to sock club on Thurs.
  2 skeins of pashmina for a scarf
  3 skeins for a shawl.
I really need to get knitting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
