Design Wall Monday

Monday, June 20, 2016
First, let's do yesterday's stash report.

Stash in 53 yards
Stash in YTD 216.25
Stash out--zilch
Stash out YTD--95 yds

Stash is ahead 121.25yds 

I bought 30 yards of solid colored backgrounds--gray, teal blue, lime green, celery green, tan, and antique tan.  $2.24 yd--I think it was a good deal.  The scrap bags I estimated 21 yds--7 scrap bags/3 yds per bag.  And I bought 2 yards of yardage for the centers of my blocks in the Apple Crisp quilt I'm making.  I love my purchases, I've already cut some of them up.

I made a few more Arrowhead blocks--

More "under the sea" colors.  Please see everyone's design wall posts at Patchwork Times.

Weekly Goals--

Sew a little

Yup, that's it.  Father's day was busy--Laura Beth, Nick, and the boys were camping over the weekend.  We hosted Ken's family for Father's Day--Ken made reservations at a local restaurant.  Then we had cake and ice cream at our camper.  

I cut the background for Double Square Star by Missouri Star Quilt Co.  I used my Creative Grids Stripology Ruler.

 I had cut 6 WOF strips then--

All the strips are cut!  I love the Stripology Ruler!!  

Hot hot days here.  I'm staying in by the air conditioner.  I plan to volunteer and sew this week--inside where its cool!

You've reminded me that I really need to start setting some small goals each week again so that I return to some bit of focus on the things I enjoy.

Wish I had spent some time sewing during these past hot days. I walked 9 holes of golf on Friday morning as part of an "event" that my husband took part in for 3 days. Glad we were part of the morning group. I might have had a heart attack in the afternoon. :-)

Hoping to sew a little early this week and then Friday/Saturday is the Heartland Quilt Show so I'll be too busy to sew.
