Weekly Report

 I finished another hat this week.

Finlandia Hat

This is another hat for the H4S (hats for sailors) project

Since most of my quilts are needle turn applique, it takes me forever to finish one.  But I do enjoy the process.

September OMG

 Participating in Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal (OMG) has helped get back into my quilting groove.  I am going to continue making progress on my Vintage Rouge Quilt.  This month I want to stitch down the Dresden plates to the background.

Catching Up

Where did the month go??????  For the first time in two years, we had all of our kids, grandkids, spouses and sweeties together.  It was noisy, chaotic and wonderful.  And then I went to Virginia to help out with child care.  I certainly felt my age trying to keep up with a 14 month old, 4 year old and 6 year old.  

Needless to say not much knitting or quilting was accomplished.  But I did manage to complete two projects.

Stash Report and Weekly Plan

 My last weekly stash report was back in May.  I am not sure where the time went.  But I have been making slow and steady progress on my projects.  So I think I will summarize what I have done for the first seven months.


My knitting obsession this year has been hats.  I have been having so much fun with them that I am hosting a Hat knit along (KAL) via Zoom for my LYS.  Our first hat was Sunflower Dreams Hat.   

I still need a photo of the finished project.  Last night I completed the sixth and final hat of the series which will be our project for November.
Caiseal Hat

Now that I have found Hats for Sailors, I know what I can do with them.  So far this year I have knitted 18 hats.  And 10 of those hats I will be able to send out to Hats for Sailors.  

Yarn In YTD:  11,083 yards
Yarn Out YTD:  7105 yards


I was able to get back to my sewing room a few days this week and managed to finish assembling two quilt tops.  Hopefully I will get one of the tops basted this week so I can start quilting.  

This week's plan:
Crochet 7 stripes (21 rows)  on Ripple Afghan.
Baste Euro Swap Quilt Top

OMG August

 Now that the petals to the Medallion Block are stitched together, this month I will attach it to the background and add the center circle.

I am going to link up with Elm Street Quilts.

OMG Finish for July

 I did it!  I did it!  I really did it!

This was a small goal that took me two months to finish.  The blades are together and ready to be appliqued to the backgroun.
