Going and Sewing!

This has been a full day!  We had several errands to run in the closest larger city (about an hour away) and spent a good part of the day going from one place to another.  I was glad to get home because this type of thing just wears me out!

Once home, I sat down and made a list on my phone of all the sewing patterns I have.  I also sent the list to myself via email so that I will have it in 2 different places.  This way, when I'm in a fabric store and find a pattern sale going on, I can check to see if I already have a pattern I'm considering purchasing.  (Please tell me I'm not the only one who has purchased the same pattern twice!)

(Getting this list of patterns on my phone completed the things I wanted to do in organizing my sewing space in week #1 of the 52 - Week Sewing Challenge I'm participating in.)

Then I sat down and did the following sewing while listening to the live December podcast of the 'Glory' study I'm doing by Cindy Colley of Digging Deep in God's Word.



I repaired this little fellow for one of my grandchildren.  He needed 'stitches!!!'


And worked on clue 6 and 7 of the 'Frolic' mystery quilt I'm doing by Bonnie Hunter.  I didn't get either clue finished but I did get a few done ... sometimes I have to baby step my way through a project!

(The challenge for week 2 in the 52-Week Sewing Challenge was to finish a WIP.  I finished up 3 pillowcases this evening that were WIP's.  I'm counting this as having completed week #2 challenge.  Week #3 challenge is to stitch up something related to a healthy lifestyle/fitness … I'm going to have to think about this one!  Do you have any suggestions?)

(I'm counting the sewing I did this evening as day #32 in my 100 Day Sewing Challenge!)

Our high today was 63 degrees with a rain shower in the afternoon!


I hope you've had a great day!

Until the next time …

  1. Hey, Patsy! How about sewing a water bottle holder? Here is a link to a free pattern: http://artzycreations.com/water-bottle-holder-with-free-pattern/. There are other designs on-line, if you want do a search and look for one you like. You could use the holder while doing gardening or while traveling out and about!

    1. Rhonda, I like the water-bottle-holder! That would be something I would use and that would be helpful. Thank you for the link and suggestion.

  2. What a cute little guy. I agree with you about the errands and not patterns, but essential oil double purchases.

    We shopped Dollar Tree for Valentine's day cards and small items to go in the grandchildren's envelopes. The meat sauce for the freezer is made and frozen. Eight easy meals ahead plus last night's dinner.

  3. Patsi I just want to say that I love this new format for your newsletter folk like me. I love these peaks into your day. You are so busy and I envy your energy! Many of the things you are doing don't relate directly to my kind of day but I learn something new all the time from you. Thanks for all that you do.

  4. You have certainly been busy, Patsi!

    For week 3, how about a water bottle cover or a headband for working out :)

    1. Jennilee, the water bottle cover/carrier is getting some serious consideration on my part! I like the headband too!

  5. Dear Patsi,
    Shopping around the city wears me out too! I'm always glad to get back to a peaceful home.
    I like your idea for cataloging patterns and the system you have in place that you shared a couple of posts ago. It is the most practical one I've seen.
    As for your healthy lifestyle sewing project, all I can come up with is a farmer's market bag or reusable produce bags. Looking forward to seeing what you make!
    Love, Kelsey

  6. An exercise mat? Sweat bands? The only other thing I could think of is sewing athletic pants or tops.

  7. I joined the challenge, too. Thanks for inviting me. I am working on an apron that I started just before I got my cancer diagnosis. It's been lying dormant for over two and a half years now. I'm ready to finish it now. I cut it out today, but I need to buy some bias tape before I continue.
    Be blessed,
    Laura of Harvest Lane Cottage
