I must confess I do have a yarn stash that will outlive me 馃檲 The 53 grams that I used for this bobble hat isn't much of a destash but it is a start. (Unless I go and buy more yarn. But I won't. Not until majority of my yarn stash is used. Promise.) #yarnstashbusting #yarndiet #knittingmystash #knitting #beanie #bobblehat #knitted #knit #yarn #handmade #pipo #neulonta #neulottu #neulottupipo #k盲sity枚 #lankavarastontyhjennys

I wish there were more hours in the day... but then again birds need to eat too, right? And to be honest, if there were more hours I'd spend them sewing not picking any more berries. My freezer is full! 馃榿

My block certainly lives up to its name!
I'm sorry for the headless angle though 馃檲

I'm not sure whether I ever use it but at least it is finished!

Just in time for autumn I finished this m枚bius scarf 馃挋
I followed the double sided m枚bius scarf tutorial from @verykerryberry - fabrics from #ottobredesign are soft viscose with beautiful drape!

So many non-sewing related projects going on here but I will catch up with my Gypsy Wife blocks. Eventually.

I'm grateful I have my aunt living nearby. I love mushrooms but wouldn't know which ones to pick without her. Or where to pick them, for that matter 馃槄

I've had the pattern booklet for few years. I've had the fabrics pulled for about an year. I've even sorted the fabrics in order to make sure I have enough for the strips as many of my fabrics are fat eights or even fat sixteenths. I guess I could say I'm more than ready for the #GypsyWifeSal 馃

I'm thinking of joining #magnoliamysteryquilt with @meadowmistdesigns... I am, however, a bit scared of the amount of background fabric in this quilt as the only fabric large enough for the background in my stash is pure white 馃槗馃槄

Maybe this black and white binding will tone down a bit the sweetness of the backing (in previous post) 馃檪 I just love love love #squaredelements by #artgalleryfabrics !!

I decided to tackle some of my wips tonight. So it's one (almost overly) sweet quilt backing in the making!

My 2017 finish along Q1 wasn't very successful and I totally missed out Q2 馃檮 So there's really good chance I do better this time 馃檪 Here's to #2017falq3!
From top left:
. Already made a fabric pull for the bucket bag from Anna Graham's book
. Pillow top from leftover blocks needs quilting and backing
. Really want to finish these So Sweet Socks
. Quilting of my Midnight Mystery quilt is way overdue!
. My quilt as you go table runner needs quilting and binding
. Balade shawl needs washing and blocking

It's finished! Could do a little happy dance now 馃檪
I will definitely make another Sew Together Bag some day! And perhaps try a little less stiff interfacing, Pellon craft fuse I used this time feels a bit too stiff for my very basic sewing machine.
Thank you @bobbypinbandit for hosting the sew along!

After a very busy week I made some progress with my #sewtogetherbag today! Exterior is now quilted and all other pieces cut, I also fused interfacing to pieces that need it. Oh, and I also changed my mind about the fabrics, that probably took the longest time 馃槉
