Sew30SewFunJune2017 Challenge Check-in

Heeeeeelllloooo...




I apologize for not doing the check-in sooner.  But, my laptop was having KUHnipshunz with internet connections the last couple of days.  So, I couldn't log on to blogger in my usual way and upload pictures, etc.  I hope this didn't discourage you in your quest to get some sewing done for the challenge. 



How has your sewing time been going?  What projects have you been working on...maybe finishing?
Reading about your projects in very encouraging =)





My sewing has been going slowly.  =(.  But on Thursday at our local quilt group meeting I was able to get in an hour plus.  And, I did to a bit of sewing on Sunday.  My total for last week was approximately 2 hours.  I'm still *in-progress* with my Glam Clam quilt.  I've had some glitches.  I can get hung up on choosing colors when doing a scrap quilt.  And, I was having a hard time choosing extra borders.  Then, a glitch in the bottom "muffin" pieces for the last row.  Ugh...sigh...it can suck the momentum out of a smooth sailing with so many glitches.  But, I'm going to persevere.  =P
 
 
A great mug with some words of wisdom. 
Bought it a wonderful local yarn shop.




The challenge continues to help me get more sewing done, working towards finishing projects that otherwise would be sitting sadly in a container on a shelf.


Besides sewing I have been working on other crafty projects =D.  I regularly have to switch tracks with my craft genres (knitting, crochet, spinning fiber, weaving...) to keep my interests from getting too stale in one area.  I hope to share some of these projects in future blog posts. 

Do you have other handcrafts besides quilting?  If so, what?

I've been stitching up a storm! I took a quilt guild class on Friday, and have been hand stitching all the embroidery parts (takes lots of time). If I haven't been stitching, I've been starting to document my sewing machines. That project will take a long time. I'm thinking about stitching a block on each of the 'working' machines (several I've never tested or cleaned yet).

My sewing's been going really well! I've sewn almost every day since Memorial Day, and have also been trying to put a little time every day into organizing and cataloguing my fabric stash (and, probably most important, pulling things out to donate!)

I also love to embroider, though I don't have a lot of time for that right now! I hope to get back to it later in the summer.

It's a good thing I knew June was going to be too busy. It has been! I'm lucky to get to sew one or two days a week.

I've been trying to sew every day, but June is SO busy that it's been hard. But I've made a Hipster Cat quilt, worked on blocks for my Long Time Gone quilt, assembled a string quilt top, and recovered a set of sofa seat cushions, so I guess it hasn't been too busy!

I'm pleased with progress this week. Managed 2 hours hand sewing Thursday and spent today finishing off a couple of bags.

Not a stitch here! Well, not with any thread...just yarn. Crocheting a blanket for one of the grands. His sister should be getting her own first quilt, so I figured I'd better have something comparable for him...and we are currently on the road in the motorhome, so crochet it is! Unfortunately, we downsized into a coach that doesn't have room for the sewing machine. I know,I know,HOW did I let that happen???? I'm still wondering, myself.

But, we are here, visiting the grands this week, so, if I guess right, I'm guessing I'll be helping one of the girls make her first ever dress! Or maybe a shirt. I dunno, she has 2 patterns and I'm not sure what the fabric budget is, so I guess I'll see when I get over there.
