June Monthly Report

Wednesday, July 3, 2019

Happy July! It's time for June's monthly report. See past reports here.

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I last posted! I didn't mean to take such a break, but I'm hoping to get back on track with sharing my makes this month. I went home to Ohio for a week, so I know that threw my schedule off a bit. This sweet quilt ladder is in the guest room at my parents, and just so happens to be filled with some of my quilts!

I actually did a lot of sewing last month, mostly gifts. It was my friend Amanda's birthday, plus my Mom's birthday and Father's Day, so I was kept busy stitching! First up, I made my Mom a fun little zipper pouch. This is the boxy pouch from my Triplizip Zipper Pouch Pattern. I used this patchwork cheater print from Echino and some Essex linen so it's got a nice weight to it.

I also made two more mini sewing tool organizers! I have loved making these little guys. One was for my friend Amanda, and one for my Mom. I used the #10 Sewing Caddy Pattern* by Sew Can She. You can see the other two mini ones I made here: Mini Sewing Tool Organizers.

Last but not least, I made my Dad a pillow to match a quilt I made him a few years ago. Thankfully I still have the matching fabrics, so it was a pretty straightforward project. Just a simple star block with a fussy cut center! I used up some leftover half-square triangles on the back too. Here is the quilt that goes with it: Deer Sparkling Cider Quilt.
To keep myself accountable for my stash goals, I track my yardage for fabric and yarn each month. Read more about how I track here. Here is how I did in June:

June Fabric
Used up: 13.75 yards
Brought in: 4 yards
Net: -9.75 yards
Year to date: -39.5 yards

June Yarn
Used up: 622 yards
Brought in: 0 yards
Net: -622 yards
Year to date: -426 yards

I finally bought some fabric! This was my first fabric purchase since March. We stopped at the Polka Dot Pincushion, which is one of my favorite shops that is local to my parents. Had to pick up a few things while I was there. Otherwise, I was still in the negative this month thanks to all the gift sewing I did. Plus I finished a quilt that I will be sharing soon. I also get into the negative on yarn, since I destashed a couple skeins this month.

Of course while I was home in Ohio we did plenty of thrifting. I was pretty lucky with vintage sheets this trip!

Have a Great Month!

  1. Happy 4th! Give George Bunny a hug from me.

  2. Polka Dot Pincushion is one of my favorites!! It's "local" (I'm on the opposite side of Cleveland), but not too local to bankrupt me, lol.

  3. Those little sewing tool caddies are adorable!

  4. Sweet George. He looks very content
    I love the vintage sheets. The pillow for your dad is superb

  5. Is that a Rainbow Brite sheet set near the top of your sheets? Because I totally had that when I was little! Too funny to think that it's "vintage"!
