    Did you get sewing accomplished this weekend?

    Maybe by posting our progress each weekend , we may encourage everyone ( including me) to get motivated with our sewing. So easy to stray curled up in my easy chair with my flannel rag quilt instead when I do have a little down time. So this is what I got done this weekend. Not as much as I hoped but I did make some progress. Just trying to use up some of what I have.

    1.finished wrapping my fabric on the comic boards. I now have 200 boards on the shelf. ( need more boards)

    2. Made 3 nice receiving baby blankets.

    3. Cleaned out two drawers

    4. Made 2 burp cloths and a couple of strip blocks.

    5. Cut up netting and made 8 nylon scrubbies.

    6. Sorted thru some material to donate.

    Felt good to get a little bit done, what about you?

    Wow, you sure got a lot done! I'm sorry to say...I didn't do any sewing at all. Some knitting, though and lots of planning,maybe that counts a little.

    I finished my second ever quilt top. Trying to decide if I want to quilt it or send it to a quilter.

    I finished organizing all of my stash while picking fabrics for a double wedding ring quilt I want to make for my son and daughter-in-laws 10th anniversary. Plus I did some work on a cross stitch design I am working on.

    YES! I was supposed to travel this weekend and decided against it so had some unexpected time and for once, I made the most of it. I have a top for my daughter's college roomate almost finished (pictures will be coming); I washed the fabrics for two quilts and have the strips cut for one and some of the pieces cut for the other, and I picked out fabrics for a baby quilt and it is in the washer as I type this. Even better, I used only stash fabric so I am feeling pretty virtuous about that. If only every weekend was so productive. lol

    I didn't sew or quilt anything this weekend. Actually, I haven't sewn anything since right before Christmas. I am cleaning and organizing my sewing area. Okay, I am really only giving it a half hearted attempt!!! I did cut some of my scraps into 2 1/2" strips, 2 1/2" squares and 5" squares today but alas, that was also a half hearted attempt. Just not feeling quilting motivated right now. . .

    I'm making a quilt with HST. I completed sewing all of them together in rows. Now my next step is to sew the rows together. Hopefully I can finish that tomorrow. I did go buy the backing and batting!

    I finished a baby quilt top and part of the mystery train. I also just got an accuquilt so I cut lots of 5" squares. I know people like having large stashes but having a lot makes me nervous so I plan to use up all my fabric scraps by February!

    Yes, I worked on my MIL's warm wishes quilt, made 2 blocks for a string quilt, trying to use up scraps and also spent some time on a Bow Tucks purse I'm making for a friend.

    I didn't spend as much time quilting as I had planned; but I did finish a machine appliqué block I had started earlier, made the 2013 Craftsy BOM for Jan, and did the sashing on blocks for a quilt top that I hope to finish tomorrow.

    Just wondering, would this be an antique or old quilt? My dsil left one with me to patch up for him and I have been stymied as to how to accomplish this. Can you offer any suggestions? it has lots of torn places, holes, and needs new binding also. Any help would be so appreciated. Thanks!

    No sewing, taking meds for the flu, cold, crud, whatever...it is so-o-o miserable. I hate being sick. Glad to see others being productive.

    I was able to do lots of stuff this weekend. After reading "Embrace Yourself" here on the board I went on a straightening up binge and made some decent progress. I quilted my third QFK on my Christmas present frame. Got my husband's quilt top 2/3s done. Just 5 more rows to put together and then some borders. Lastly I worked on a backpack for me. It is almost finished which is good as I am traveling next weekend.

    I finished up my first quilt for this year and started putting together pieces I had cut up last Dec. I ended up with enough pieces for three quilts, different sizes, two different patterns. Same colors. I sew about every evening and on weelends while I do laundry and cleaning.

    I cut lots of blades for a Dresden plate quilt, put 4 plates together, then I read NYPD Red by Patterson as I got it from the library and it is only 5 day checkout. Oh, almost forgot, did the laundry and vacuumed the house. Will sew tomorrow, kid finally goes back to school and I will have free time.

    Well, I need to cut and attach the borders for 2 tops as the long-arm lady will be ready for them in a few days. Because I absolutely hate to cut things out, I did nothing at all. I spent this afternoon curled up with my flannel raggy quilt and a novel. I also took a long nap. I head back to the classroom tomorrow....hope I don't oversleep!

    Didn't do any sewing...but did do some sorting...trying to clean out some items I don't need anymore in preparation for hopefully moving in a few months. Hard to do. I took down Christmas decorations today, and do have a box of items I can let go of....like, but don't love. Also went through my shoes and came up with 6 pairs I really don't wear so they are going to go, and some clothes that don't fit, and that I don't wear. Hardest for me is to let go of any of my sewing items.

    I wish I had a glass ball I could look in and see the future home where I would live so I would know how much room I will have and what kind of storage area so I had a better idea of what I could keep. Have to sell house first, selling "as is" and hope it will sell pretty fast once I am ready to put it on the market (my goal is March 1st).

    Won't be getting much sewing done for the next few months, but hoping once moved and settled into a new place, that I will be able to sew on a more regular basis again...would love to do at least 30 minutes a day during the week, and a couple of hours each day on the weekend.
