This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all

Spring is here!  At least for the week!

I didn't knit this week.  Mr Onyx the cat thinks that if I am home after dark and not at work that means he gets to sit on my arm and lets me do nothing.  I have learned to grab my phone and remote before he does this.  Yes, I could move him, but I feel guilty i leave him alone so much.  Yes, I am aware he's a cat..................lol

I did get two rows sewn on the Elegant Elements.  My goal is to get it done by Saturday.  This weekend is a Stitch N Bitch weekend with two friends/employees. I hope that I can knit all weekend!

That's about it.

Support your Local Police @Quilters Depot!

This is the week!  Our charity project starts this Thursday!

Have you registered yet to help Verna with her Charity project?  Register now!

Machine Embroidery—Police Key Fobs (Charity Event).  We are doing something different for Machine Embroidery Club this month.  We will be making Police Key Fobs and donating them to the Castle Shannon Police Department.  If you donate the fobs you make, the club is free.  If you decide to keep your key fobs the class will be the usual $15.  We would like to have enough to support more than just one of our local police departments.  Did you know if you are going north bound in front of our store you will be assisted by the Bethel Park Police.  If you are traveling south bound in front of the store it's the Castle Shannon Police or vice versa.  I always get confused.  The fact is we are protected and served by two police departments.  Let us show them our thanks and support!  Come help us make FOBS!
When: Session 1: Thursday, February 16th @1 to 4pm.  Session 2:  Thursday, February 23rd 6 to 9pm.
Hosted by: Verna Spargo.  Cost: Free or $15.

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

I love the warm weather but it seems like it will be an up and down week again.

I quilted two quilts this week for customers at the store to free up my Sundays some.  I am working on a quilt that mom pieced and will be mine so i'm doing free hand quilting on it. I usually do not do free style but since it's mine i figurd i'd go for it.  That means it's going to be a three week project and i've done 6 bobbins already!  Hopefully only two more bobbins and I will be done.

I also felted my slippers this week.  Not happy with the outcome of the felting, am not sure if it's because of the yarn or something i did.

I also started a knitted t-towel top.  Hopefully I will finish that tonight.  Mom wants me to do a second matching towel and then i need to start on a pair of slippers for a friend.

Have a good week.  Stay warm and dry or cool depending on the day!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

So I am horrible and I forgot to take pictures of my clogs.  I am half way through the second one.

Hopefully I will be finished by next weekend and I can take pictures.

Nothing else is much new.  Had a few nights off last week so I didn't get anything crafty done at the store.

I know boring.  Why do you read this blog..........hahahahahahahahaha

I don't have much to tell you all week either so this is the only entry for the week!

Remember Knit/Crochet klub is Thursday @5pm!  come finish your clogs or work on whatever you want.  Emily will be there by 530!

So that's it!  Stay warm and safe!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!


Last week I promised you this picture of what I have done so far on my Elegant Elements.  I really thought I'd get another row done this week but didn't.  so far i like 75% of it.  I'm not sure what i did wrong on the top left corner..........lol  I have no missing blocks so i think it might have been embroidered wrong or i just totally did the wrong block............lol

oh well that will be my big mistake for the quilt!




I also finished one of my two felted clogs.  Hope to start the second tonight.

Have a great week!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

BRRRRR  it's a tad bit chilly out there this morning.

This weekend was a mini Quilt Retreat for me and two friends at my apartment.  We all had high hopes and did finish stuff but not as much as we all wanted.

i hemmed 4 pairs of pants.  seemed like more but there was only 4.........lol

I am now a little bit over 1/2 way putting my Hoop Sisters Elegant Elements together.  I like it except the top left corner.  not sure if i pieced something wrong or if it's my color choices.  Hopefully in the next few weeks i can get the whole thing done!

I was going to post a picture but my dropbox is not working as i write this blog.  (i'll post next week)!

I also am working on a pair of knitted felted slippers!  didn't take a picture though.

Have a great week!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy BRRR Sunday!

At least it's a good day to be inside to watch Steelers and Pens!  Sorry for any of you sitting out for the game............lol

I don't think I'd survive sitting outside for a football game.  I think the arena is too cold!

I didn't do anything again this week.  Not sure how that keeps happening.

Two of my friends and I are having a mini retreat weekend next weekend at my apartment.  I hope to get my Elegant Elements quilt done and hem about 4 pairs of pants.  Is it doable?  We will see!

Stay warm and come buy fabric that will warm you even more!
