Cutting up some clothes

I have been cutting up some clothes to put into a quilt.  I can't share much about everything just yet.

It's taken a lot of interfacing, and there has been a lot of interesting fabrics!!  I think the most interesting is the ski jacket (the red & black).  I have also cut up some boxers, suit jackets, pants, jeans and khakis!  It sure will be an interesting quilt, but I needed to cut up the clothes before I got much further!

Cloth pads

I haven't posted about my cloth in a while, mainly because I've been working on other things.

But recently our washer broke, and if I don't get to the laundry enough, I've ran out of pads!

So I decided to whip some more up!

I started with flannel then PUL then terry cloth (that's new for me to try) and then some Birdseye cotton (I think that's the name of it, I bought it years ago before I was as organized about my fabric!). Then a snap on each wing finishes it off!!

July Goals

Well my June goals were in the middle of the month, so shall be my July goals :p  Things have been kind of slow around here, mainly because I cannot share pictures of anything :( BOO!!! I have one top done, and am close on others.

We spent last week at a lake cabin with my husbands family, I took the featherweight and got some sewing done.  Which I am hoping to show soon.

on to the goals!

1. Post in my blog 7 times a month.  This one will be a stretch this month!! We have been busy since we got back from the lake, we are moving at the end of this month, so the packing has begun.  I have also been working on going through some of my craft stuff to cut down, like the five billion quilting magazines.  Which I love, but I am culling them down.  Pulling out the patterns I like, and I will putt hem in page protectors in a binder.

2. Finish 10 quilts this year.  I am on track for this.  School is starting up again soon (ACK! when did that happen!) and with moving and some other things going on in our lives, hopefully I can get some stuff accomplished!

3. And last but not least, get some UFOs done.  I haven't worked on that one at all, I am too busy on some other things.  It will definitely move to the top of the list once I get those projects done!
