May SFS 2015-A Check-in

Here is my Check in for May for SFS 2015-A:

Month: May
Spent: $12.00 (3 yds of Clearance fabric for binding of future quilts)
Earned: $16.00 (Santa's Office)
Carryover to April: $145.00 (April Carryover 116 + 4 (from Above) + 25 from this months budget)

All in all, this month has been a good one from a budget perspective.

I have decided that I need to get back to setting monthly goals for myself as I have been slacking in the posting department.

So here are my monthly goals for June: (keeping in mind I have a 12 day vacation in Here)

June 2015 Goals:
1.) Post at least 4 times this month
2.) Get caught up on posts of finishes
3.) Complete Cross- stitch of Stocking for a friend
4.) Get Batik Bricks quilt to Long armer prior to vacation (That means finishing piecing the top too)
5.) Complete 4 Christmas ornaments (These are great car trip tasks)
6.) Finish gender neutral baby blanket and post about it
7.) Tuck in all the ends on knitting projects (It is my least favorite thing to do so I need to make it a goal to get it done.

Happy stitching everyone!

Knitting Progress!

Well...I have been hard at work on knitting baby Blanket's these days when I am not traveling. I remembered to take a progress picture of the first one which I am calling "Fruit Salad":

"Fruit Salad" Baby Blanket - Bernat Babysoft Yarn, size 11 needles
 I have since finished this one and moved onto a gender neutral blanket. I will have pictures in the next week on that one.

Happy Stitching everyone!

Brick Quilt in Progress

Just a quick of a Quilt that is in Progress for my cousin Andy. The risk has been the fabric and pattern choice being masculine enough.

Brick Quilt in progress - Batik Layer Cake (RJR Fabrics)
Hopefully he likes it.

Happy stitching everyone!

I am now working on one of 2 stockings for a friend that have been interesting.
