July Monthly Report

Monday, August 8, 2022

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

This month's report is going to be extra short. I finished exactly zero sewing projects in July! This isn't all that surprising, I typically don't sew that much in the middle of the summer, and this July was especially hot for us here in CT.

Even though I didn't finish anything, I did work quite a bit on my vintage sheet bear paw quilt. I posted a progress check in late in July, you can read that here. I'm actually going to end up with more blocks than I need for this quilt, because I accidently over cut two of the colors (pink and green). My plan is to finish them all and make a baby quilt in addition to the throw quilt I had planned to make. I'm very glad to be done with the half-square triangle trimming and am just building blocks at this point.

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:

July Fabric
Used up: 0 yard
Brought in: 0 yards
Net: 0 yards
Year to date: -19.25 yards

July Yarn
Used up: 1000 yards
Brought in: 0 yards
Net: -1000 yards
Year to date: -1000 yards

No fabric went in or out in July, but I did destash some yarn. I was very happy to sell 5 skeins of worsted weight yarn on Ravelry!! I had bought it to make a sweater, but never got around to it. Felt good to let it go to someone who will use and enjoy it!

Time to check in my with 2022 crafty goals. This month I:
- I worked on my vintage sheet bear paw quilt which has been a long term WIP.
- I let some yarn go, which helps with my yardage goal!
- I knit a few rows on my mittens in progress.

Kitten is always near by to help me when I'm working. :)

Have a Great Month!


  1. Lovely pics, that vintage quilt will be gorgeous. I'm almost 50 and if I stay at my mum's I still sleep on those sheets. They're rather threadbare by now. I look forward to the next update.

  2. Those dahlias!!! I love seeing your gardening things.
