Sunday Stash #9: Off to the moon

I can definitely blog about my new additions to my stash today but alas, my 30/30 Sewing Challenge was a bust this week. That was mostly due to the hubby’s arm:

  • Wednesday – having to get up at 4am to the hospital, kind of limited extra curricular activity
  • Thursday –  7 hours at the hospital for the surgery, I did however get some hand sewing done on my Hexagon quilt for a couple of hours.
  • Friday / Saturday – the care giver of two, took over 🙂

Good news though, the hubby’s collarbone is all fixed now and he is moving about. He landed up with a plate holding his collarbone together.

So onto the fabric additions, which is far more interesting ;-)..First up, is a selection of the Rocket Age line….perfect for Chair bags/Chair pockets and pillow cases, I am thinking.RocketAge_HawthorneThreads

Also, purchased some miscellaneous fabrics…

Linking up with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash and Sarah @ Berry Barn Designs for 30/30 Sewing Challenge (need to own my not so good week).

30 / 30 Sewing Challenge check-in

It has been a challenging week for more than one reason or another. The biggest news, was when the hubby rang to say he broke his collar-bone playing soccer at work. What you might find shocking, is that this was the second broken bone (two different ones), that he has broken in the last 12 months, in the same arm, playing soccer at work…..I know, right!!!  😀

I still managed to get most of my time in this week for the challenge, starting with some paper piecing, trying out my new pattern. I hope to finish these Week 2 of March.

The rest of the week, I spend most of the time cutting the first half of my X & + blocks.


And on Saturday, I was in going through the motions…. “sewing, sewing and keep on sewing”.

So this upcoming week, I plan on finishing the tapa star cushions and completing 1/2 of the X & + blocks (which is 24 blocks).  Linking up with Sarah @ Berry Barn Designs for the 30/30 Sewing Challenge check-in.
