Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Sunday 2 February 2014

Stash Report, week 5, 2014 and monthly goals

I didn't do a whole lot of sewing this past week, or at least not as much as I usually do. No energy to do much beyond the basics, these days. And it continues. I was up until after 3 am, before I finally fell asleep this morning, and woke at 10 am, and it wasn't solid sleep up until then. I have a sleep disorder that kicks up every now and then. I won't be doing any hand stitching today, since I don't seem to be able to concentrate. I'll do a little more on my pink scrappy blocks for the Rainbow scrap challenge, and maybe one or two Three of a Kind blocks. They don't require a lot of thought. But, on the other hand, I may just sit and knit and watch movies.

Used this week:                                          1 yard
Used this year:                                          12.4 yards
Added this week:                                      0 yards
Added this year:                                       0 yards
Balance:                                                 12.4 more yards out than in.

I have all kinds of pieces prepped for sewing up more Three of a Kinds, and also the scrappy triple four patches. I can add them as used as soon as I get them sewn.
I've been trying to think about which UFO I want to get done this month. I think I might concentrate on a couple. I did some four patches and 16 patches out of 2 1/2 in squares as my leader/ender project a couple of years ago, and they've been sitting waiting to go together ever since. So I think this will be the primary one I focus on. After all the leaves and the complex layout of last month's UFO, I think I'm ready for something a little easier. But I'd also like to get some more done on Cactus Rose. We're having a guild sew-in day towards the end of the month on the 22nd, and I'm thinking of taking that to work on then. I'm also hoping to get another one of my own quilts actually quilted this month, hopefully Thanksgiving, which was last month's UFO goal, to get the top finished
I'm linking up to Judy's Stash Report and also to the goal setting link box for the February goal setting party for the Lovely Year of finishes.


  1. I'm sorry you can't sleep and were up so late. I'm a natural night owl. I get a burst of energy usually around midnight and then it's hard to turn off my mind and go to bed. So I stay up until 2 or 3 am.

  2. I hope you start feeling better soon and that you find more energy to do the fun things!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
