I have a list of things I need to blog about like the Six Year Coin Quilt and Izzy’s Quilt. The list is the first step right? Well this post is mainly to claim the blog over on BlogLovin’ but I figured other updates wouldn’t hurt.
Well let’s see here. If you follow me elsewhere you have probably seen I have gone quilting ga-ga once again. I am still sewing dolly carry bags and knitting though. Oh yes and cross stitch and all that other jazz. Quite multi-craftual.
Have I started on BlytheCon New York stock yet? Um…no. I started a list. Does that count?
Did I start on that rocket ship bag idea I talked about in October/November? The one that I came up with in talking to twitter and IG pals about the silver lame fabric I found at Hancock’s in Tucson? Um why yes I did get the protoype done last night. Overall it turned out well. Just a few things to work on to improve the wings and porthole. Oh and SpaceGun got me going on other future ideas. Dear my!
I did also start reworking the fabric stash gallery and made some changes so that it is easier to update. Which means I am more likely to *keep* it updated. It was terrible…someone would pick a fabric and I’d have to tell them I didn’t have anymore…then sometimes their top three picks went like that. Not good folks! Which reminds me that I need to take out a fabric already.
Quilty: Loads of Comma is in my fabric closet now for a plan I have for a lap throw for Spacegun my darling. Do hope it works out as well as it looks in my Visio plan. Emerald Challenge is due as well as a pincushion for swap at the April PHXMQG meeting so those are things on my mind. Scrappy Trip still only has 14 blocks. And paper piecing is faboo. I am working on catching up on my BOM (block a month) projects.

Knitty: Still working on Luxie Lou’s hat but on the decreases! Baby sweater one of two is nearly done but I hate the gauge and have transferred that feeling to the whole project. Think that needs a redo. Vitamin C cardi has no new updates. Yes, the knitting has lessened lately but some easy project need brought back into the mix for good down time work.
The baby sweater started out nice...
Stitchy: Woodland Sampler is not even started. I do have most of the floss though. Kawaii Winter Wonderland is at a standstill but hey I have until December now right? Another set of projects I adore and need to take time for. Going to pop general sewing in here too. Just received a new skirt book “The Essential A Line” and need need need the pocket one. I’ve not made clothes for me other than Halloween costumes in ages so a skirt is a good start. I have a sway back though so I need to drudge up all my info on pattern altering for a nice fit.
Remodel-y: Well we found some wall patching issues in the master bath when working on that so we are going to fix that before painting. Looks like at some point someone maybe leaned or fell on the extended counter and pulled it from the wall and they patched it badly. I am going to move on to the floor though so at least we can get back to a two potty household and safe some sanity. The bathroom is a ‘mini makeover’ so I am just taking up the stick on tiles I put down a few years ago and laying new vinyl blanks on top of the sheet vinyl. Also keeping the sad builder grade vanity and trying my hand at chalk paint and wax.
