My 100 Day Sewing Challenge # 23

I was able to sew for 4 days this past week for at least 15 minutes each day.   Hoot!   Hoot!

These 4 days plus the 59 I've already completed puts me at 63 days!!! 

Here's what I stitched up ...




two more pillowcases ... 


and clue #3 in the mystery quilt I'm doing.  (Clue #4, here I come!!!)

See those little red clips holding the finished 'clues' together?  Those are the handiest little things for this kind of sewing!

Not shown is a diaper bag I'm working on for the little twin girl that spent Christmas with us.  I promised her diapers, and an outfit and diaper bag for her baby doll that she got for Christmas.  She asks me every time she sees me if I have them done yet.  I give her a progress report and she is happy!

What have you stitched up this week?

  2. I'm at day 69. I just got home from a 1600+ mile road trip, but I did take some hand work along with me. My mother is in hospice care, so while she was sleeping I was able to pull out some embroidery and make the most of the time. Humming/singing some hymns while I stitched. It brought comfort to me and I hope it did to her as well.

    1. I'm so sorry Cheri that your mother is in hospice care. Keeping your mind busy humming and singing hymns and your hands busy stitching while you sat with her sounds like it was a blessing to you and to her.

  7. I finished the 2nd vintage nine patch quilt on Sunday. https://pin.it/dqfkwpohhktefq
    I also made 4 more flannel Kleenex to give a friend. https://pin.it/5e3suypqkdayzp

    I spent a few hours clearing my sewing table, trimming down the leftover pieces of fabrics from my recent projects and adding them to the plastic shoeboxes that I have sorted by size for ease in making more quilts! You can see in the top right of this photo the tall shelving unit with plastic shoeboxes labeled with sizes of strips, bricks and squares- 2" up to 6". https://pin.it/x3mcdy3ctqfcia

  9. I really like the pink primrose pillowcase. It looks like Spring.

    My sewing area is in our bonus room and I think it is about 60 degrees in there right now so I don't even have the courage to go up there! I do have a set of Christmas napkins all cut out and ready to be hemmed sitting up there.

  10. Your quilt is going to be just beautiful! I've been cutting out denim shirts or jumpers that have shrunk with small zipper bags in mind to sell. I also have just embarked on a new project cutting a 16 inch square and making it into a cloth cube for storage - can't wait to see how that turns out. I also have 2 skirts with overlays - one is lace over chambray and the 2nd one is a blue floral tea stained material over - navy pirate wench style - both for my daughter's birthday - to many projects and not enough time!!
