Let’s start off with what I got accomplished from last weeks list. It doesn’t feel like much or look like much when checked off on a list – however, there was alot accomplished that wasn’t “important” enough to make it on the list. You know, the kind of things that you just know have to be done and don’t bother listing. Yea… Anyhow, let’s take a peek at last weeks list and how I did:
- Move fabric onto my new shelf
DONE!!! The shelf came on Wednesday afternoon and by that night I had it assembled, everything moved, sorted and lots more space to move! It really made my day. I may or may not have 4 tall bookshelves already that are overflowing with fabric… It’s hard when you enjoying making things with all different types of fabric! It’s not like I’m just hoarding quilting cottons. There’s muslin, satins, stretchy fabrics, squishy fabrics, felt, tulle, organza, more types of blended fabrics than I can think of, brocade, silks, linens, faux leather, real leather, the list is endless.
- Sew up blocks 11-20 for the 100 days 100 blocks 2018
DONE! I actually ended up sewing together blocks 11-21 I’m really liking the way they are all looking together. Two things to note – (1) there will be more of the mustard yellow because I’m sashing the blocks and (2) the odd-looking blue-ish color is actually a green color but for some reason, I can NEVER get it to look accurate in the photos…
- Cut fabric for blocks 21-50 for 100 Days 100 Blocks 2018
Nope, hasn’t happened. What I did do though, was manage to make a cut list for the fabrics up to block 70. I’ll need to cut these out this week since block 22 is supposed to be posted on Saturday.
- Round 3 & Border 4 of Camp Oda May
Nope, haven’t even touched the quilt. However, I did get which path I want planned out. 🙂 That counts for something right?
- Dresses for my little girl
This hasn’t happened either much to her dismay. 😦
- The Farmer’s Wife 1920 FPP patterns
I did manage to finish some more of them. Currently I’ve turned 81 of the 111 blocks into FPP patterns. WHOOP WHOOP!!!
So I think that was a great accomplishment even if I didn’t get it all done! Specially considering I’ve been crunching to get everything ready for our year of kindergarten homeschooling.
Now onto this weeks list.
- Cut fabric for blocks 22-70 for 100 Days 100 Blocks 2018
Since I didn’t get to it last week I HAVE to get to it this week since I’ll be needing block 22 done for THIS SATURDAY!!! YIKES!!!
- Sew up at least blocks 22-30 but preferably more.
- Since I’ve not done much for the Camp Oda May #chooseyourownadventrue and they’ve added onto it considerably, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. This is one of the items on my 2018 Q3 FAL list.
- A dress for my little girl
She’s a smart little girl and she knows I “fix” things. She picked out a bunch of tee-shirts at the store and asked me to “fix them and sew skirts on them for dresses” so that’s my plan. I’m hoping to make at least 1 of these this week. Do you notice a theme? LOLOL Yea, she kinda really likes pink in case you can’t tell. 😉
- A leotard for my little girl
She’s due to start “real” dance classes around the middle of August and I’m hoping to have 4 finished by the time she starts. This week though I’m just aiming for one. These are also on my 2018 Q3 FAL list. I managed to score these 2 spandex fabrics off the Walmart clearance rack for $0.50 per yard so of course I bought all that was left on the bolts of both. 🙂 There was about 4 yards of the pink and just under 3 yards of the silver/black.
- Secret Sewing & Planning
I’m planning a sampler style qal for the start of the 2019. It’s going to be a big one – 99 blocks. The design is drafted and I’m currently working on the block patterns and sewing up the blocks myself. I’m thinking of releasing the individual block patterns in 3 different sizes, but I’m not sure yet.
- Not sewing related YET – but I need to harass hubby enough to go get our silver bullet camper home this week!
It was given to him in exchange for some work that he did in place of cash payment. It needs to be fixed somewhat on the inside so there will be sewing involved once it gets home. 🙂 I’ve never seen the inside of it… and I’m unsure what theme I’m going to do with it. I’m just going to wait until it’s sitting in the backyard and speaks to me.
So that’s what my sewing week is looking like. What do you have planned for this week?
