My 100 Day Sewing Challenge # 10

Now that the threat of Hurricane Irma has passed (we are so thankful that we only got rain and wind) and I no longer have to think about preparing for her, I can return to my sewing challenge.

Thus far I have completed 21 of the 100 days I set as my goal.  This week I can add to more days to that bringing me to a total of 23 days.  

One of the days was while we were at a friends house while traveling.  She had been given lots of full and partial skeins of yarn along with some uncompleted projects. She asked if I wanted any of it and my answer was yes.  So, we sat and talked and wound yarn into balls. We unraveled uncompleted projects and wound that yarn into balls too.  We made an entire evening of it even getting my husband in on it.  We had such fun, laughing, helping each other untangle yarn and transforming something unusable into something usable.  Who knew that something as simple as winding yarn could be such an enjoyable task!  (These were the same dear friends who helped us break all those green beans ... yes, we are blessed beyond measure to be able to call these dear ladies friends.)  What will I do with the yarn?  I will use it on an afghan I have started that is specfically meant to use up scraps of yarn. (This whole basket is not full, below the yarn balls are small children's toys that we keep on hand when the little ones are visiting.)

The other thing I stitched up, and I did do this last week, was this table runner made out of burlap.  I had some burlap leftover from another project so I dug it out, cut it to the desired size and stitched around it to keep it from raveling out.  It took very little time to complete and now I have a much wanted 'fall' table runner for our antique meat box.  

I'm in the process of pulling together a fall arrangement to go on this meat box that will incorporate that big jar I found at the thrift store while traveling.

That's it for me this week, what about you, what did you get stitched up this week?

One more thing ... Don't forget to check out this week's featured post!
