fourteen, fifteen. . .

Stitched up blocks fourteen and fifteen last night.  I left number sixteen up on the design wall because I was determined to go to bed at ten.  Then stayed up well past eleven reading the Fellowship of the Ring to the boyos!

two more Cool Yule blocks

Only THREE more blocks to go!

some vacation sewing

I spent some time sewing on my vacation.  I first made two shark pin cushions (I gave one to my sister) to celebrate the new Sharknado movie.

The largest pincushion is a Buttermilk Basin pattern.  I had liked this pattern since last summer but didn't order a kit until this month.  It was really fun to make.

Two of the RWB pincushions are Schnibbles Liberty Tuffet patterns.

The churn dash is from a block exchange so I just turned it into a pincushion.

The little spool is a hand-pieced block I made and turned into a pincushion.

Fabric report

I finished four pairs of pjs this week (one was a pair for my brother from last summer that only needed hemming).  I am so close to being positive on my usage for the year but I succumbed to 3.5 yards of camping themed flannel at JoAnns.  DH just suggested a few things I could make for him that would bring me over into the black. LOL

Fabric Used this Week: 7 yards used 
Fabric Used year to Date: 47.75 yards

Fabric Added this Week: 5 yards

Fabric Added Year to Date: 52.25 yards

Net Fabric for 2016: -4.5 yards used (so close!!!!! negative means I need to use more fabric!)


 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
