The Week That Was–2/8/2015


The week started with some cold weather and a smattering of snow.  This was just about all we got.

The rest of the week was windy & cold.  With temperatures down in the teens and wind-chills much lower it was great weather to stay in and stitch!

My sewing machine set up to chain-piece some HSTs. My husband took an old piece of office furniture – a table with one center drawer – cut a hole in it and created a shelf where the drawer was. Now I have a sewing table which allows my machine to sit down and have the sewing tray level with the table top.  I love it!

  • Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks:

We’ve received a couple of more blocks to test.  Here I’m auditioning fabric for one of the blocks. I spent one day going through my scraps and re-organizing them.

I’ve got some plain piecing to do, appliqué and reverse appliqué to do.

  • Fabric Café:

This is one of the two tops I’m working on.  Fabric is all cut.

I could not believe my eyes.  How many times have I worked with stripes only to have them come out a bit wonky when stitched.  Honestly, I did not do anything special, but when this seam was stitched look how straight the stripe is!

I can’t show this top yet, but once it is available I’ll post it! I think you’ll like it!

  • Stitching for Good:

Friday was our monthly charity sewing day.  Our projects included quilting, making pillowcases to be donated to a hospital and Bead Bags of Courage for children battling sever illnesses.  I spent most of my time helping other stitchers and cutting fabric for pillowcases and quilts.

  • Besides the normal, cooking, cleaning, bill paying, grocery shopping, and my sewing, I was able to visit with one of our littlest neighbors while her mother took a run. We had fun dancing, singing and playing!

Hope you were able to get some stitching in this week!

Happy Stitching!
