What’s Working on Wednesday

I’d like to say lots of things have been working but that’s not true. Maybe it’s the cloudy, ugly rainy weather we’ve been having but the only thing I did since Monday was tidy up the sewing room a bit.

On Saturday I did make a table runner with part of a Moda precut I won a while back at Vroomans. This was leftover and I’m making a candle mat/mug rug for myself, just needs quilting.

DH and I took a trip to Ikea on Sunday. I needed a lamp for the family room so I could do handwork while I keep him company in front of the TV. The previous lamp has found it’s way to Arcadia University with a certain college student. I never leave that store without buying things I didn’t go in for. So I came home with a new Aqua colored spray bottle, 5 journals to cover and a nice new cushion for my sewing chair. Ahhh, boy did that cushion make a difference! Thank you Ikea!

I finished the border on my Cinderella shawl and blocked it last night. Ta Da!

I enjoyed making this shawl and will probably make it again only larger.

What’s Working on Wednesday

I must say not a lot has been working in the sewing department. I got an order for business/credit card holders, so that’s what I’ve been doing.

I have been working on my Cinderella Girl shawl in the evenings. You can’t really tell from the pictures that the yarn is gray with purple parts here and there. I love this yarn.

Lately I’ve been having a bit of a problem with all of my blog comments going into my spam folder! Haven’t had time to figure out if it’s blogger or Verizon but I’m working on it.

What’s Working on Wednesday

I’ve spent lots of time this week checking out things to do with charm packs. Looks like I have more than I realized.

I did get to finish up my Kaffe mini. I quilted it yesterday with gray Gutermann thread and this evening I hope to hand sew the binding down while I watch TV.

I have done a little crocheting but not much. I’m still watching the DVD for the sock loom. I’ve worked on this shawl. It’s a CAL in one of my Ravelry groups.

If you have any charm pack quilt patterns that you love I’d really like it if you’d share them with me.

Today, as always I’m linking up with Quiltsy.

Scrap Happy Saturday 2013

I’ve joined this years Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Although I didn’t post anything January’s color was pink. I did get to work with my pink scraps a little. This is the only thing I finished.

This month’s color is purple. Believe it or not I don’t have too many purple scraps. Only one little pretzel tub. I have a few scrap blocks made and I pulled this old paper pieced block out and hope to do something with it.

What to do When it Snows

If you are on the east coast like me you will probably be spending some time indoors this weekend. I have lots of things to do. Some not so much fun (cleaning and laundry) but many fun things too.

I have tried to learn to knit since I was a teen. Looks like that’s going to be one of those things I can never do well. Two years ago I got this as a Christmas gift. I’ve wanted to knit socks forever. So this loom is the only way that will happen.

I hope to spend some quality time with this loom and have something to show you next week.

I took a little trip to my local Joann because thread was on sale and I needed some Gutermann. The fabric seems to be getting better there. I’ve never been a fabric snob I’ll use anything that is good quality, don’t care where it comes from. I really do like some of the new stuff I’m seeing. So I had to get these chevrons and dots but like I promised I used my gift card. I don’t want anyone to think I went off my fabric diet. Lol

Those of you in the path of the storm be careful. Stay indoors if possible!

What’s Working on Wednesday

Remember the new addition to the sewing room? Well she has a name now. Meet Georgie Girl. She was shipped from Georgia so I thought it was appropriate.

Here she is working on her first project making HSTs.

The original idea I had for these wasn’t quite working. So here’s the new idea. What do you think?
