Design Wall Monday - November 10, 2014

Last winter I got got this Timeless Treasures panel and decided that it was time to do something with it.

I like the way all the motifs are etched in gold.  I was unsure what to do with this so with some simple piecing, adding borders and decorating with crystals I made these three wall hangings out of the one panel and still have 3 of the small blocks left for a future project.

I will take these wall hangings to my first craft show and see if they sell.

Other than preparing for upcoming craft shows and getting a start on Christmas shopping I have been working hard at staying on track with Weight Watchers (down 26 pounds) and back and forth to an eye specialist with eye problems.  Another of those appointments tomorrow, hopefully the last one.

Sunday Stash Report - November 9, 2014

Another week has gone by quickly, I can't believe how close we are to my craft show season and Thanksgiving.

I have been trying to finish up the last few craft show items but also have been battling some vision problems in my one eye so have not been doing as much sewing as usual.

I did get three small wall hangings made and a few things quilted in the last couple of weeks.

Current stats are:

Fabric purchased last two weeks:  0
Fabric used last two weeks:  7 yards

Fabric purchased YTD:  160.75
Fabric used YTD:  308

Net fabric used in 2014:  147.25

I think that is a pretty good total with practically two months still to go in the year.
