My 100 Day Sewing Challenge #9

I continued to work on this blanket this week.  I actually got in 3 different days for at least 15 minutes of sewing/crocheting each day.  

This puts me at having completed 21 of the 100 days needed to complete this challenge!

I'm really enjoying this challenge and if you're doing your own challenge, I hope you are finding this method enjoyable too.

I also learned how to crochet hot pads, thanks to the patience and effort of a dear friend!

What about you, what did you get stitched up this week?

She looketh well to the ways of her household … Proverbs 31:27


  1. Have you tried the hot pads yet? I always seem to burn my hands with homemade hot pads. What's the key?

  2. I have completed one of two single bed crochet blankets. These will be gifts for my folks for Christmas to go in their new to them, caravan. I finally got to my sewing machine and made a market bag and a mans bathroom bag. Both have a hessian exterior and satin lining. One make gift in the present cupboard and many more to go.

  3. I didn't get to sew everyday but I did get to make my granddaughter a cute apron! I have two more to make the girls need them when they use their easybake ovens! :)

  4. Sadly, I did not get a lick of sewing done. I was working on some organizational projects, unrelated to sewing but will make it easier to sew.

    If I counted correctly there are 116 sewing days until Christmas!

  5. The potholder looks great and the varigated yarn adds a nice color combination.

    I have done no sewing or handiwork at all, although I have high hopes that I will get to it soon. Instead, I am canning every spare moment, which also makes me happy. The jars are filling up, the garden is winding down a bit, and the weather might even cool down a bit after this weekend.

  6. I took 30 vintage Bow Tie quilt blocks that were hand pieced in the 1940's, squared them all up and stitched them into a quilt top.
    I took a batting remnant from my stash and a fabric for the backing (also from my stash)!
    I quilted it with a Baptist fan pattern. I bound it and washed it with a Color Catcher. It was about 36" X 42". I put it up on Facebook marketplace and it was sold within 12 hours by someone who lived in a neighboring state. She also paid for shipping. So, after expenses, I made $72!

  7. I managed some mending on Monday, but no other craft this week so far. Your blanket is lovely!

  8. I have one of those pot holders from years ago and love it! I am trying to make one but I can't get a handle as to how many stitches I should chain and what is your finished size? Torn it out several times! Thanks for any help that you can give me. Nancy
