Judy's UFO Challenge

Judy at Patchwork Times has posted a UFO Challenge for 2017.  And like many quilters I have more UFO's than I care to admit!!  Here are my 12 projects that I will work on.

1. Home Tweet Home--11 of 12 blocks are done.  Needs to be assembled, sandwiched, quilted, binding, label,


2. Owl Strippy Quilt-- needs quilting, binding.  This will be a donation quilt for our NICU project.


3. Revolutionary Flare--top done.  Needs quilting, binding and label.  This is from  2015 from an Embroidery Machine Quilt Club.








4. Joy of Life Applique 4 blocks done 5 to go plus quilting, binding and label.  I fell as though I started this in a past life!

5. Aunt Mindy's Flower Garden-another top done that needs quilting and binding.
Needs quilting and binding.  This is a hand-stitched red work quilt that was started in another life-time.





6. 30's Four Patch Euro Swap.  Several years ago (probably almost ten years ago, I participated in a European Swap.  I love the top which I put together a few year ago.  It needs borders, quilting and binding.








7. Guild Sampler.  Needs quilting and binding.  Have you noticed I have started leaving off the label.  I suppose that should be a given.  But I am not always good about labels.
 

8. Underground Railroad.  I have 6 completed blocks.  I am not sure I will make anymore.  I had been thinking to make it larger.  But I think it is time to finish it.
 
9.  Leftover Jelly Roll.  Someone, somewhere gave me a bunch of 2 1/2 inch strips.  I put together a little lap quilt that needs to be quilted and bound.  I think I will try out some machine embroidery quilting and use it as a donation quilt.
 


10. Vintage Valentine.  This quilt was started 3 life times ago!  I have barely started hand quilting it.  I thought by adding it to the list, I would at least put in a few stitches.
This will be on every UFO list for next 20 years
 
 
11.  Aunt Grace's Garden Party.  Another large project that needs finishing.
 




12.  Labels for completed quilts.  I have several quilts that need labels.  This is true confession time.  I am not always good about labeling what I do.  I counted 5 quilts that need labels.

        Stash Report

        Thanksgiving is over, Advent has begun and soon 2016 will come to a close.  Even with the chaos of the holiday, I managed to use a little stash--both yarn and fabric.

        Yarn in this week:  898 yards
        Yarn out this week:  98 yards
        Yarn in YTD:  19303
        Yarn out YTD:  10397

        Fabric in this week:  6 yards for a backing
        Fabric out this week:  3.75 yards--a charity quilt and a pillowcase
        Fabric in YTD:  40.5
        Fabric out YTD:  94.75

        I still have a few weeks!!!

        On the Needles Friday (Saturday)

        I know I have been on a little hiatus from blogging, but imagine my surprise to find blogger has changed!  I think it is just a little but I will need to spend some time with it.  Life has been a little stressful for our family with medical concerns.  As a family we circle the wagons to take care of each other.  I was able to lose myself for a few minutes here and there to relieve the tension.
         This was a simple knit that doesn't require too much concentration.  I have another on the needles that will have a football on top and the Patriot's colors--red, white and blue.  I will be sending it to my Little Mr. C who lives in VA.  My son in law is a die-hard Phila. Eagles fan.  And since Little Mr. C is going to be a big brother in January,  I have started Wee Baby Blocks  in Liberty wool in a soft blue grey.

        Stash Report

        No new finishes on the knitting front but I did sort through a little of my yarn stash and gifted 3326 yards.  I met a lovely lady at our Weight Watcher meetings (actually I have made several friends there) who has taken up charity knitting with her church group.  I have some yarn purchases that make me wonder what was I thinking.  Also my taste in yarn and projects have changed over the years.  My friend J is very happy.

        Yarn in the week:  0 yards
        Yarn out this week:  3326 yards
        Yarn in YTD:  18405 yards
        Yarn out YTD:  10299

        Another PhD quilting project is done!!  I finished the binding on a string quilt.

        Fabric in this week:  0 yards
        Fabric out this week:  15.5 yards
        Fabric in YTD:  34.5 yards
        Fabric out YTD:  91 yards.

        I wish my Weight Watcher numbers were as good!!!

              Stash Report

              A few not so positive changes.  I needed some backing fabric and of course nothing in my stash was right for the project.

              Fabric in this week:  5 yards
              Fabric out this week:  0 yards
              In YTD:  34.5 yds
              Out YTD:   71 yards

              My yarn numbers did not change this week.  But I know I will be having more come in before the end of the year.

              On the Needles Friday

              I finished the first sock for Knit Purl Hunter's Cableship KAL.  And the second sock is ready for the heel.  This is my first attempt at Judy's magic cast on.  I do like the technic and will use it again.









              This was also the first time I used a Russian bind off.  It is very neat and pretty.

              Back from a little adventure

              I have been off on a little adventure visiting Miss Meg, Rob and Little Mr. C in VA.  Since he isn't quite two he is still a little shy when I visit.  But he is a love and his smile melts my heart.  Miss Meg is expecting in January but we don't know if it is a boy or girl.  That makes it a little limiting for knitting and quilting but I hope to manage a few items before the big day. 
              I was able to do a little  cooking while I was there.  The mom to be had a craving for tomato soup and grilled cheese.  I tried this recipe.  We didn't have cream only half and half.  It was a good first attempt.  I would like to add a little parmesan and some oregano and basil.  I think I will work on this.  We had grilled cheese with apple, cheddar and Munster.  The following night we had meatloaf from  Keeper's recipe book. Pancetta makes everything better.  There was also a little baking marathon with Oatmeal Raisin cookies and Monster Cookies.
              Now back to my routine.

              Design Wall Monday --ok Tues

              At my LQS there is an Embroidery Quilt BOM program that I have been doing the last couple of years.  This year we are using Anita Goodesign's Landscape Animals.

              This is my progress so far.  It is a fun project.

              Stash Report

              I have bee avoiding this post like the Black Plague.  I mentioned a few posts ago (I think) that I went on a yarn crawl with three of my Wooly Friends.  We each had a shopping list with a few items--nothing extravagant.  I was looking for a specific gauge ruler.  And I wanted to purchase yarn for a baby blanket for the new little grandbaby due in Jan.  We saw lots of amazing samples that got our creative juices flowing but we exercised remarkable restraint.


              We purchased our "passports" at our home LYS.  The canvas bag had some knitty loveliness.
              These were my purchases after visiting 5 shops.  I think I did well.  The yarn at the top right is to make a cowl.  The yarn is soft and feels wonderful against the skin.  The left forefront is Sueno in a blue gray for the baby yet to come.  And tucked under the gauge ruler is a skein of encore and a hank of roving to try my hand at thrummed mittens.

              So now that I have tried to justify my purchases I am going to fess up to my numbers. 

              Yarn in since I last calculated:  2719 yards
              Yarn out this week:  0 yards (lots of WIP's)
              Yarn in YTD:  18405 yards (No I am not missing a decimal point!)
              Yarn out YTD:  6538

              Falling Off the Wooly Wagon

              Do you ever feel the need for a little accountability with yarn purchases or fabric purchase?  I always have good intentions but often times have a few special things that just beg to come home.  Such was the case when working last week at my LYS.  Like most well intentioned knitters, I don't NEED any stash yarn.  But I will purchase yarn on special occasions such as the yarn crawl I went on a few weeks back (more on that latter).  Several of my knitting friends (aka Wooly Women) are going to participate in Knit Purl Hunter Cableship KAL. I am not a proficient sock knitter and thought the KAL would move me in that direction.


              This is my yarn choice.  It reminds me of watermelon and I wanted happy socks.  The yarn is Zauberball and it feels lovely.

              I only want to buy yarn for specific projects that I will work on in the coming months.  But I am weak.  these two lovelies found their way into my work bag. 
              So the big question is will I stop buying yarn for the time being.  Well-l-l-l-l!!!!!  Not exactly.  I found a darling poncho pattern for my granddaughter, and I think I need to start it.  Maybe just one more project's work of wooly goodness.

              October Goals, Hopes and Dreams

              I know I sound like a broken record but where does the time go!  Halloween candy has been out since July and I am seeing Thanksgiving and Christmas ads everywhere.  As you can see from my list, my expectations are over the top.  I wish there was a way to give up sleep.  It seems like such a waste of time. I wonder how much of my list I will cross off this month. How much green will be on the list???  The green items I just happen to add on any given month.  They are unplanned items.  I call it being flexible.  Others call it distractibility!

                      Yarn Crawl Adventures

                      Having been busy with a Yarn Crawl and a road trip to visit out of state family, I have had no time to share my Yarn Crawl experience.
                      Although there were 13 shops participating in the Crawl, we were only able to visit 5 shops. One of the 5 was our home shop.

                      My three wooly friends and I set out early Thursday morning to visit our first shop--which for us was the farthest.  We packed snacks and water to sustain us.  Even though I made a resolution this year to limit my yarn purchases, I knew I would purchase some lovely wooliness for specific projects.
                      The grey Sueno is for Wee Baby Blocks.  We have a new grandbaby coming in January and there was a request for a grey blanket.  At the top right are three skeins to make Big Fat Stratus.  There is some roving on the left.  I am going to make thrummed mittens.  I will add up the yardage for my stash report on Sunday.

                      Friday, September 23, 2016

                      On the Needles Friday

                      I am definitely in the home stretch with my Great American Aran Afghan.  Block 22 is done.








                      And I hope to finish the pieces for block 23 tonight.  This square has a mini Aran sweater stitched onto a background block.
                      I am off to Judy's to see what others are working on.

                      Saturday, September 17, 2016

                      September Goals

                      Goal setting sounds so formal.  I think I have to start referring to them as good intentions.  To say I was side-tracked this month is an understatement.  In my knitting world I have been concentrating on the GAAA squares.

                        Stash Report

                        True confession time--even more wooly loveliness found its way to my stash.  But to be truthful it is ear marked for a KAL or two that will be coming up.  I am knitting feverishly but haven't completed anything.  I am working on a few large projects. 
                        And in the fabric department, I finished 3 little quilts that will be donated to a NICU.

                        Some lovely wooly goodness found its way into stash!  And it is here to stay.  But I am very happy to have finished a quilt.

                        Yarn in this week:  2248 yards

                        On the Needles Friday

                        There has been a definite improvement in my knitting skills since I posted thishttp://appliqueand.blogspot.com/2016/08/some-days.html.

                        This is what it looks like today.
                        But before I made much progress, it was time to cast on the next square.  In just two days this is the progress I made:
                        I hope to put a good dent into these two squares this week end.

                        Some Days!!!!

                        Today is one of those days I should not have been allowed to play with sharp objects.  I have been working on the Great American Afghan.  And after almost 2 years I am ready to be done with it.  Several of the blocks have been very challenging.  This block I am about to show you wasn't all that difficult, a little fussy but nothing drastic.

                        After much scratching of my head,  I realized I used two different sized needles!!!!!  It is time to put the needles down and walk away from the yarn.

                        On the Needles Friday--a day late

                        For some reason I always manage to miss my Friday knitting post.  But I am happy with a little progress this week.  I finished another GAAA block.  The challenge for this block was to knit the border first and join with a Kitchener stitch.  The pick up stitches to complete the center section also in the round.
                         
                        I cast on another block also a little tricky.  It is worked entirely in the round.  I started on a circular needle and have made my way down to DP needles. 
                         
                        
                        I am hoping that blocking will really help the squares!

                        August Goals aka Hopes and Dreams

                        I am not disappointed with July.  Especially when I consider that I had cataract surgery on both eyes.  Those procedures really cut into my quilting, knitting and reading plans.

                        The items in green represent things I did that I hadn't planned on.  Sometimes I have a short attention span and drift into other areas.

                            On the Needles Friday

                            I am plugging away on my projects.  I know I am making progress but it is slow.
                            My Cape Cod is lovely to work on.  I love the yarn and the pattern.
                            And it is beginning to look like a sweater!!!  YEAH!!!
                            I am working on Block 17 of the Great American Aran Afghan. 
                            It is the border of a block that is grated together.  I have already finished it once but I did a terrible job on the grafting and decided to redo it.  I did the provisional cast on with a larger needle.  Wish me luck with the grafting.

                            On the Needles and Stash Report

                            This will be a multi tasking post!  My attempts at blogging need to be better organized.  But I have been busy working on my GAAA (Great American Aran Afghan).  I am doing this along with a couple of friends.  Another block is finished and another one begun.
                            
                            Church Block
                            The blocks will look  much better once they are blocked.  This was a fun block to work on.







                            The next one I am working on is a little tricky but I think I have the hang of it.  I needed to purchase more yarn to finish this project.  Fortunately, my LYS owner had put aside several skeins of the yarn. 



                            I made a little progress on my Cape Cod.

                            So while nothing has been finished I am making steady progress.

                            Yarn in this week:  910 yards
                            Yarn out this week:  0 yards
                            In YTD: 8014 yar
                            Out YTD: 6538 yards

                            On and Off the Needles

                            Another week has flown by!  Do you ever ask yourself  "where does the time go"?
                             
                            I finished another block of the my Great American Aran Afghan.  And hope to finish another one today.
                             

                             
                            I am making slow and steady progress on my Cape Cod.  It probably doesn't look much further along than last week.  But I am almost ready to separate for the sleeves.

                            On the Needles Friday

                            I am not sure I can even say slowly and steady progress.  But there was some knitting and I am happy with the few stitches I managed to do.

                            I made a little progress on my Cape Cod.  And I managed to cast on another block of The Great American Aran Afghan.  With one cataract surgery down and one to go, I am not sure how much of anything I will get done this month

                            GAAA

                            Get it done July

                            I had hoped to be more productive this month.  But I did dabble a little here and there.  My first cataract surgery put a crimp in my plans.  I will be having my second eye done in a few weeks.  So I think my plans for July are ambitious.

                              I have made a little progress on my Cape Cod.  The yarn--Three Irish Girls--is lovely to work with.  It is a top down sweater from Baby Cocktails.  I am going to link up with Judy and see what others are working on.

                              Stash Report

                              I got a little carried away this week.  I needed some fabric for two quilt tops that are almost done.  And I needed to "supplement" my stash with just a little more fabric for my Machine Embroidery Quilt Club.  My little adventure added 26 yards!

                              My fabric report for the week is:
                              Fabric in this week:  26 yards
                              Fabric out this week:  0
                              In YTD:  29.5 yards
                              Out YTD:  47

                              There has been no change in my yarn numbers even though I knit everyday.

                              On the Needles

                              I  managed to finish another Aran afghan block.  It was a little tricky but I like the final block. 



                              

                              This is #15.  Just 10 blocks left!!!


                               A gentleman at Church asked if I would knit him some dish cloths.  That is one project I have never done.  He gave me some yarn that his late wife had not used.
                              I finished one and gave it to him earlier this week.  He was so happy.

                              Stash Report

                              Are you a knitter?  Do you know about the Plucky Knitter?  Three years ago I participated in a KAL and loved everything about the project and the yarn.  I suppose life got in the way and I didn't keep up the site.  But I have fallen in love all over again.  I ordered two skeins of Traveler DK in Maverick and Goose.  I think it will make up into a lovely cowl for a Christmas gift.  Plus I purchased 7 skeins of Primo Sport in Run Forest for a sweater for me.

                              On the Needles Friday

                              I promised myself that I wanted to knit a sweater for me.  I have not been a successful garment knitter except for baby sweaters.  Fit isn't as critical.  Babies and kids will hopefully grow into it.  Our LYS is offering a sweater fit class and our first class of Wednesday evening.  We made our swatch and did the math calculations for our pattern.  I am going to attempt knit Baby Cocktails' Cape Cod.  I have chosen Three Irish Girls Knit Springvale DK in Cherry Ginger ale.  I have wanted to be a successful sweater knitter and I am determined to do it

                               
                              I am still plugging away on my Great American Aran Afghan.  This is block 14 in progress.
