Week 4 Sewing

Last week was week #4 in 52 Weeks of Sewing and it was to sew something red.  So I mad a Valentines shirt.  It's really comfy and was super easy and quick to make.  I do need to shorten the sleeves.

And of course Trinity had to help me! LOL

Things I have been up to lately

I am in a Facebook group called 52 weeks of sewing.  They have prompts for each week on what to sew.  Of course if what the suggestion is doesn't work for can do something else.

Week #1  Organize your sewing room

 Week  #2 Complete a problem as I have a ton of these hanging out...

I choose to work on Gracie's blocks from a secret Santa we had participated in a number of years ago. I put solid blocks with them and made a flimsy, which sat around for roughly a year!!  So I got it out and finished it and sent it up to my Niece Brekayha for her birthday!  She loves it!!

Week #3 Make something from a pattern you have never used

So I dug around and found a lounge pants pattern and some fabric and worked on them...well let's just say it's been a looooong time since I've sewn clothing and read a pattern.  Needless to say I need to rip these out, as I sewed the legs for the waist...ugh... and do it correctly this time LOL

My 2019 UFO's

My goal this year is to accomplish getting these all finished.  A couple of them are not started yet, so I guess they really are not UFO's but are projects I want to complete.  A couple of them have certain time frames to be finished my.  So I will need to stay focused and consistent in my efforts this year.  

1.  Moda brights  (top completed; needs quilted)
2.  April/Tim wedding quilt (kit bought)
3.  Quilt for Jayson (need a plan)
4.  Christmas stockings ( top completed; needs quilted)
5.  Debbie Mumm Christmas wall-hanging (embellishment on blocks/make top)
6.  Dresden Plate Wall-hanging (top completed; needs quilted)
7.  QLH House BOM ( Finish making blocks)
8.  Teal mystery ( top completed; needs quilted)
9.  R/W/B Jacobs Ladder ( top completed; needs quilted)
10. Pumpkin swap blocks ( blocks completed; make top)

I've been sewing!

It's been awhile  but I have played with my sewing machine this week.  I was able to get a UFO into a top.  Now to look for background fabric.

Random thoughts for the evening

Yesterday we were so happy to have the horticultural debris from Hurricane Irma picked up....finally no more looking at that everyday.

So we fall back tonight, my body has been doing that all week with my sleep schedule, it thought that it was time last week!  LOL

I've been on the computer looking at different projects that I would love to start and think oh wait I need to do this or that for Christmas presents and so I save the ideas for another time.  I've been in a funk for quilting again and am slowly coming out of it.  I have six Christmas stockings that I need to embroider name tags for this week,  also make some burp cloths.  Really need to make a list and focus or I'll never accomplish what I need to by Christmas.

Hard to believe July is almost over

Where has the time gone?  It seems like yesterday and it was still June.  My time away in June was fantastic, great catching up with some family and going to a Quilt Retreat is always fun!  Spent a day or two in Paducah, KY doing some shopping and seeing some sights.  After retreat my Aunt Becky, Leslie and I stopped for 2 nights in Shipshewana, IN.  Really a neat place, did a bunch of shopping!  Want to take Jim there sometime.  I'm making progress on getting the sewing room usable again.  I picked up this chest last week and am slowly filling it up!
