Sunday Reporting, 6-7-09

This past week has sure been a busy one! I was very busy at my day job last week, so I didn’t get a lot done on my quilting projects last week.  I did get some more sewing in on my sawtooth star blocks, during my lunch hours.  And since I’m not sure how I’m going to use them, I th0ught I better make sure I had some border fabrics on hand, just in case, you know. 🙂

That means my stash report is all about fabric coming in this week.  And it felt good! 14 yummy yards to fondle and fold.


YTD numbers:

  • Incoming Yardage to date: 52 yds.
  • Outgoing Yardage to date:  35.75 yds.
  • Total Stash Busted to date: – 16.25 yds.

Yeah, I’m going the wrong way.  Oh darn.

I have picked my knitting back up, for something to do when I’m just chillin’, watching TV and relaxing.  Or when it’s nice out and I want to sit in the yard under my shade trees.  However, I don’t think I’m ever going to graduate from knitting kindergarten.  Oh man, I seem to take out more knitting stitches than quilting stitches.  I make so many mistakes.  And I’m only doing a stockinette stitch.  I started this sweater completely over several times.  Hopefully, I’ll make it to the finish! And it will actually be wearable.

I bought some other quilty goodies this week. Connecting threads had a 30% off notions sale, and I have been wanting to try Clover yo-yo makers, so I got one of every size.


I’m a little too busy to be making yo-yos right now, though, so don’t expect to be seeing any soon.  I also got this cool stencil from Full Line Stencil.

They are made of a mesh like material.  000_9029

Even though I’m not using it on my 9P & Stripe, I tested it out on it, just to see how it works.  I like it!


And here is where some of my time has gone! Every minute worth it!  The first two pics are after the NTPGA junior tournament here in Perryton.  1st place with a four under par of 68!



And a first place in his age division at the Jim Hitch Memorial tournament in Guymon, OK.


I have gotten some more, though very little, quilting done on my 9P & stripe, but it’s just more of what you’ve already seen.  So I’ll save posting more pics til the end.

Have a great week, and remember to spend some time doing something you love,  and hopefully spend some quality time with someone you love!

  1. What a talented fella ! I don’t need to tell you good lookin’ too. I like your new “stuff” – especially your fabric! Here’s to you this week – enjoy whatever you do.


  2. I agree with Sammi about your son!! very talented and good lookin’ too.
    I am checking out the new stencils, so intriguing. I’m due to add some new ones anyways. thanks for sharing the site Randi.
    Have a great week!


  3. Love the new fabric – it would go with stuff in my stash!

    Congrats to your golfer! Is he thinking of continuing in the sport? The golf programs at OSU and OU have produced some good golfers on the pro tour… or do y’all think an OK school is a no-no? 😉

  4. Very handsome and talented boy you have there! I have 3 of my own whom I hope have such success at such young ages. I like these stencils and will be checking back for more!


  5. Randi,

    You must be so proud of your son!!!

    Thanks for the headsup on the new stencils – I will give them a try as I am not terribly fond of the plastic ones.

    Also, lovely fabrics that you had coming in! 😉
