Hello! Stopping in to make a quick announcement about my moving sale. I'll be listing destash items for sale on my @jenidestash Instagram account this Saturday morning. There will be lots of scrap bags (quilting cotton, solids, knit, voile, rayon), some yardage, stash boxes, hand dyed indigo FQ bundles, books, project leftovers, etc.

On Monday, I’ll start listing items for my sample sale, which will be held in my online shop (quilts, bags, minis, etc). I’ll share more info about that on Monday.

Shop News: Money Saving Pattern Bundles

Thursday, November 9, 2017

Happy Wednesday! Today I have a little shop news to share. You can now find three different pattern bundles available in my shop! These bundles come with pre-selected patterns and offer a discount over buying the patterns individually. Hint, hint: These bundles would make great gifts!

The Bag Making Bundle
First up, the Bag Making Bundle. This bundle features three of my bag patterns: the Lined Drawstring Bag Pattern, the Triplizip Zipper Pouch Pattern, and the Elemental Tote Pattern. All three patterns feature easy to customize bags, and are suitable for beginners. Even if you've never made a tote or installed a zipper before, you can make these bags. For seasoned sewers, they're all great basics! The bundle is available as digital PDF download or physical paper copies. It's $20, so you'll save $7!

October Monthly Report

Monday, November 6, 2017

Happy November! It's time for October's monthly report. See past reports here.

So, for the past three weeks we've been traveling. This included time at home in Ohio, a much needed vacation to the beach (Captiva Island, FL), and a short trip to our new state...Connecticut! We spent a whirlwind few days in our new city of New Haven finding a place to live and getting a quick look around. We're moving sometime in early/mid December, so we are in major moving prep mode now that we're back in Madison. It's been pretty stressful, but it feels like we can see the light at the end of the tunnel which is good.

To lighten the crafty load, I'll be having a big moving destash of fabric/yarn and a sample sale this month. I'll post here with more details soon.

Finished up my house quilt last month, see the block tutorial for this quilt here. Will share the finish soon!

It was a quilty month! Finished and shared my Halloween Nine Patch Quilt this month. Just in time for Halloween.

And finally, shared my finished Harvest Log Cabin Quilt (and tutorial) this past month! Yay for quilts!

To keep myself accountable for my stash goals, I'm tracking my yardage for fabric and yarn each month. Read more about how I track my here. Here is how I did in October:

October Fabric
Used up: 27.25 yards
Brought in: 6 yards
Net: -21.25 yards
Year to date: -178.25 yards

October Yarn
Used up: 0 yards
Brought in: 0 yards
Net: 0 yards
Year to date: -3731.5 yards

I'm really pleased with how much I was able to get done this month, especially considering I was away from my sewing room from the 17th until the end of the month. I kept the incoming fabric down and managed to finish two quilts!

I think we can pretty much breeze past the goal section from now on. I am not expecting to be able to work towards too many of my crafty goals the rest of the year. I'm sad that I haven't been able to make more progress, but know it will be easier next year once we are settled again.

I'm sure no one is surprised that I organized the shells I picked up on vacation by type and then size or color. Not all of these came home with us, but I love shelling. My favorite beach activity!

Love this snapshot of George, who took a nap on his log. :)

Have a Great Month!
