Ha! See what I did there? I got a lot of sewing and crocheting done this week. A LOT! This is what happens when you have the weekend off and don't leave your apartment except to grab something to eat and work out. I could totally do that every weekend. I don't mind being home when I have things to do.
Block 8 of Beginner's Quilt Along - I kinda wish that the stripes would've either all lined up nicely or where all wonky enough to not line up at all. I probably could've made that happen, but it would've been more work than I was willing to do. I'm not lazy, I just don't feel then need to do extra work if I don't absolutely have to. There was a lot more sewing that needed to be done.
Added four more rows to Oh Lucy! I didn't want to stop sewing, but knew I had to work on other things. I did ignore my hungry tummy for an hour though. She's much bigger than I thought she was going to be. Oops. Oh well. This one has been a learning experience for sure. Also, I think I will be naming all my quilts with people type names. I don't know why, I just think it'll be fun.
Quilts for Kids - This sucker went together quick. I finished most of the top except for the borders. I thought about doing them, but wanted to get some more work done on Lucy. I think part of why this went together so quickly is because I received the kit with all the parts already cut. The only cutting I did was for the four square blocks. My only frustration at this point is that some of the cuts they made were uneven. It's okay though because I made it work.
Made a few more card holders and added one to my etsy shop. I'll make a few more for this weekend as well. I've had interest from one person so far for one. Hopefully I'll get a little more interest in them soon. I think they'd be good for school. Keep your money and ID in them and throw them in your pocket or back pack.
I cut some 2.5 inch squares for the Scrap Vomit Appreciation Society swap. I have to cut 100. I've got maybe 20 done. I'm using up my scraps so if there's enough left for a 2.5 inch square it gets cut. Easy peasy. Not even sure what I'll do with the squares I receive. Maybe make a pillow or two.
I've finished another cowl and a few more hats for Sew Loco. A few more to go and I'll be ready for
Saturday. Anything left after Saturday I think I'll put up on etsy. I need to find some models for them though.
No progress on the sewing machine cover, the great granny square/baby quilt or the zipper pouches. I don't expect to make any progress on the sewing machine cover until after my fabric freeze is over...unless I win some fabric in a giveaway or credit to a shop or something.
I did end up making a dress this weekend too. It's kinda see through though, so it either needs a slip or a tank and some leggings to go underneath. I ended up making it more difficult to make then it needed to be. Lesson learned.
