Get It Done

Journaling my goals has helped me see where I've been, where I am and where I would like to be.  In the past it would have bothered me not to complete everything I planned.  But it is ok to stray!  I like the little side streets I take every now and again.

Although I have more quilt projects started than I care to admit, my knitting is different.  I can only have one project at a time--go figure. that is not to say I don't have a  large yarn stash--Oh but I do!!  I have two challenges coming up so I get to buy more yarn, since what I have just won't work--hmmmmm.  Do you believe that last little tidbit? Since I  did not like how the Ma Belle was going together, the yarn will be repurposed.    My gauge and measurements were accurate but I wasn't happy with finished project.

Stash Report Week 12

I have some good news and not so good news.  The good news is that I went to the quilt show in Lancaster PA.  It was amazing.  I am always inspired by other quilters' creativity.  I don't really think of the next bit of information as bad news but there are some in the house who would disagree.  I added some lovely yardage to my stash.  16 1/8 yards to be exact.  I love every square inch of it.

My numbers so far look like this:

In this week;  16 1/8 yards
Out this week:  0  (I was way too busy shopping to sew!)
In YTD:  18 3/4 yards
Out YTD:  44 1/4 yards

Stash Report Week 10

I tend not to report when there aren't any changes in my numbers. But this week I have a finish!!! I will be sending off a Quilt of Valor Heartstring top, backing and binding.  If you notice below,  I have brought in only 2.25 yards of fabric so far.  But I will confess now to a significant change is about to occur (probably)  My sister and I are going to the Lancaster AQS show on Friday.  I can't imagine visiting all of those vendors and not purchasing some significant yardage!!

Fabric in this week:  0 yards
Fabric out this week:  15.5 yards
Fabric in YTD:  2.25 yards
Fabric out YTD:  44.25
