Stash Report for Week 35 - 08-31-14



You've heard the expression: "nothing ventured - nothing gained"?   Yup - that explains this week!  The ONLY thing gained was another block for Toes in the Sand!

And yes, most of the week I did spend in bed - 2 days reading like crazy! (2 books finished!) and 2 days not feeling good!  (don't know if it was the whatever that is probably going around - or results from ultrasound - at least on Friday!)  Ugh!

so - stash report - like last week.  I can't count the Toes in the Sand until at least the entire flimsy is done!  Which I think I'm going to cheat - and move ahead anyway! and maybe complete a block a week!

Still - am feeling a LOT better this week - and may be posting the "NEW (at least to me)" a lot sooner! (I want to work on Judy L's Tell It to the Stars - and haven't even started yet - so ANYTHING done there will be a major improvement! But, again - that is both a mystery and a BOM! so there won't be any yardage posted from that either!  But it'll be FUN!!!!)

                  Ta Da for Week 34 - 08-30-14

                  QUILT
                  Toes in Sand - Block 8 (August's block!)
                  aka Santa Monica (as stated by Jaybird Quilts)
                  Other than the above block, I did NOT do a lot of much in terms of quilting!  Last Sunday - I quilted (discussed that!), Monday I worked on my studies - and house! which DESPERATELY needed it!  Tues and Wednesday - I - uhm - found an interesting couple of books - so that was that!  Thursday - I did NOT feel great - slept most of the day and Friday - I had an ultra sound!  Now, ultrasounds really don't hurt.  And there was NO reason (that I can think of) for my back, kidneys, to go beserk and try to keep me up all night with pain!  (I don't like to take pain medication and then go to sleep - just a horrible phobia of mine - has to do with fear of not breathing!)  STILL hurt - a whole bunch!  Body STILL rejecting that ultrasound!  NO idea why!
                  But then - I'll get over it - or not!  Either way - not to worry!

                  EDUCATION
                  Um - not a lot of much happened - I am STILL trying to play catch up!  Although I now have a "game plan" and hope to get caught up a LOT faster!  I truly need to - and no, I'm NOT saying how far behind I am - although if a person thinks about it a bit, it isn't hard to figure out!

                  Worst, of course, was - Botany - which has NOT been what I expected it to be!  With the second worst being the course I call the Earth (think history) - which I THOUGHT I would enjoy!  And in some ways do! third is Russian - which I keep going back and reviewing - mostly because it seems that almost all the basis for grammar is in the first 30 lessons!  and there is quite a bit!  Although, truth be said, not nearly as much as with English - and a lot more consistently (mostly) than English!

                  Foolishly, I put my math and creative writing on hold until I caught up.  That is one mistake I won't repeat again!  I should be OUT of those books and into the next set for sure!  Urgh!  However - over all, despite being behind - I think I AM enjoying my self-inflicted (LOL good choice of words there) homeschool study plan!  Do I feel "smarter"?  You've GOT to be kidding!

                  GARDEN
                  Still have LOTS of green beans! I picked one side of bean beds (plural!), still have other side to go!  And yes, some are BIG and shelly - so am drying and will thrash beans out and use like dried kidney or pinto beans!
                  Greens - uhmmmm - definitely large.  What is funny is that I have planted purple kohlrabi - only where I THOUGHT it was, it isn't!  No kohlrabi's forming!  Instead - there are quite tall and lush purple-y plants that MIGHT look like purple broccoli - but isn't - no flowerets forming!  So - am harvesting like I do other greens, removing center ribs like I do with collards - and cooking that way - either stir-frying like my favorite way of doing collards, or cooking up like I do with greens!  Delicious - whatever kind of cole plant they are!

                  FOODS - PRESERVATION AND OTHERWISE 

                  Other than putting up what I have, I can see that I will definitely be buying in most of my foods this year!  Especially fruit!  Strawberries were delicious - but I need more - a LOT more!  Raspberries never made it to the house!  Same for blackberries!  And I want to move both those plants! 

                  Mulberries - I think I got only 7 berries - but the tree is very young and needs my other plants moved AWAY from it!  NO cherries this year - drat it! and only 1 peach which is still hanging on the tree, greener than a gourd!  I DID have apples - but every single one of them vanished! Probably during June drop!  Do have pears though!  And I may have to trim out the middle of that tree - esp since it is now starting to get really tall!  Problem is though - if I do that, it will then shade over a much wider area - which means I will definitely need to move my side garden!  And yes, the blueberry bushes - vanished!  Totally!  Not cut off - just gone!  

                  Grape vines are coming along beautifully - and, yes, I need to transplant the one that has sprouted in my raspberry bushes - it is vining this year!  Which means that either I didn't transplant ALL of the grapes I had "temporarily" planted there - OR that I must have left part of a root - or a vine there!  Other two - the original and it's "daughter" plant - doing wonderfully EXCEPT there is no fruit!

                  Re the grapes, lessened raspberry crop (blackberries just starting to come in to their own), cherry tree, peach tree, and, I suspect, the apple tree - we have a very sudden, unexpected late frost this year - after several lovely warm weather days - and I think that caught all the fruit buds - at least to some degree!  Only ones not affected seem to be those plants that ordinarily bloom later!

                  So - end result - I will DEFINITELY be buying in cans and jars this year!

                  Design Wall for Week 34 - 08-25-14

                  I know what I want to do for borders!
                  And definitely I will be using walking foot on this one!

                  Optical Illusions - aka by me as St Paddy's day table runner!
                  Needs quilting!  Probably walking foot

                              Thanksgiving table runner turned wall hanging!

                              Stash Report for Week 34 - 08-24-14


                              08-24-14 - Week 34  I worked on - and finished the Thanksgiving table runner (which is too large for my table and therefore becomes a wall hanging!!!).  The back is NOT pretty - and at some point I may do pumpkins and viney leaves yet in the border!  Just not now! 

                              Also finished - but can't count it until the whole quilt is done - another Toes in the Sand block - which means I'm caught up to today for class!

                                            Design Wall for Week 33 - 08-18-14

                                            MACHINE QUILTING

                                            Considering that I am now #10 on the Stashbuster Queen of the UFOs list...........

                                            Thanksgiving table runner.
                                            I need to finish quilting this.
                                            Wish me luck - borders will be FMQ!!
                                            and this is the first time I've ever done that!

                                            Front of the table runner with corner turned up.
                                             PIECING
                                            Jamestown Landing - still!
                                            And this is part of this week's offering!

                                            Buckeye Beauty!!!
                                             I made too many 4 patches (this is only a part!)
                                            I have enough for 3 baby blankets!

                                            Irish Double Chain
                                            I want to finish the flimsy!
                                            Barring that - I'd like to at least get the blocks into rows!


                                            Toes in the Sand.  This is Block 6.
                                            I'm behind only 1 block now, although I'd like to get August's offering done as well!
                                            Maybe both this week!

                                            This group of 4 patches goes in the mail tomorrow!
                                            Wendy and I are discussing whether the same for NEXT month's 4 patches!


                                            Ta Da for Week 32


                                            No finishes - BUT.....

                                            Education - Worked on backlog (a serious one!!!!) of schooling projects - Religion is caught up mostly from Spring!  Still trying to finish up other areas!

                                            Cooking/food preservation -..... well, moving right along....

                                            Quilt -  Again - no finishes - but here is what I DID do!!!!!!!

                                            Buckeye Beauty!
                                            I made entirely too many patches for 1 baby quilt of this!
                                            I think there's enough for 3-4!!!

                                            Irish Double Chain
                                            This is B block.  A block is already done!
                                            Almost ready to turn the blocks into a flimsy!!!!  Maybe by next week?

                                            Jamestown Landing!
                                            String blocks!  And I'm wondering if I will EVER run out of strings!!!!

                                            Toes in the Sand - this is Block 6
                                            I don't remember the specific name of this one
                                            (each block has a name of a beach along the coast in CA!)


                                            Stash Report for Week 33 - 08-17-14

                                            Although I did a sew-a-thon Friday and Saturday and part of Sunday - no finishes!  DID get another step closer on Toes in the Sand - but that won't count until it is ALL done! And although I did an excessive number of 4 patches for another baby quilt - in fact about 3 baby quilts!!!  They aren't completely done either!  And the Irish Double chain is so close I can taste it!
