July 6th, 2014 - I’m Back

Finally, I get to be retired! My brother is much better and has returned to work and out of my house. Much as I love my brother, I don’t want to live with him again. Ever! I hope he stays nice and healthy or gets a wife to care for him.

On the quilting front, not much has gotten done and I just can’t seem to get anything done either. I finished hooking a rug, stitching the last panel of Winter Wonderland and now am trying to finish hand-quilting something I started a few years ago,  maybe 6 or 7 years ago. I need to get my mojo going as I have a table in a craft show in November. Hmmm…… what to make that would sell. I have lots of ideas, just have to get busy.

Now for my meager stash report.

Fabric used since the last time: 1.92 yds

Fabric used YTD: 72.88 yds

Fabric added YTD: 41.35 yds 

Net fabric busted: 31.53 yds

I spent the last month in Barrie ON and visited a few quilt shops. I managed to buy only books and threads. I couldn’t even muster up the creative germ to look at fabric. I kept thinking of how I just wanted to go home and sew. Looking at quilting blogs and magazines only made it worse. Now that I’m home, all this house stuff is keeping me busy. Leaving 2 guys here alone for a month is trouble. I’m hoping this week to start sewing something.

Have a great week and keep cool!
