This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all

I am starting to think that Old Man Winter might be staying for the summer!  Can you believe the snow this morning.  YUCK!  Ok they are promising warm weather but even the 14 day i saw last night yes it was warmer but brrrrr not as warm as it should be.  Oh well I'm going to be positive.  Not too cold means no furnace.  Not too warm means no air conditioner.  My checkbook likes those options!

First reminder the Pirates season starts tomorrow!  Get your knitting needles ready!  If you are like me.  I will have a calender marking the wins and losses because I know I'm going to get behind........lol

I got the clasp on my bracelet and started a second one for a birthday present for a younger cousin.  I just love these colors. There is a red one calling my name but I'm not sure if I'm that sick or not to do another one!  lol



I also have been working on creating the next quilt along!  Hopefully I will have it done soon so I can give you all the details and we can start in May!  I have to make sure I get some pre-cuts in for you all first before we start.  I mean what's the purpose of having a Quilt Along if I can't entice you to buy new fabrics!  :-)

This week I will be doing another glitter thread quilt!  Gotta get it pinned on first!  Also working on a big King size quilt at home.  I hope to find some time to get more of it done this week.  I hate when I take two weeks on a quilt and get off schedule..............lol

I will show you my Pirates scarf next Sunday if you show me yours!  Email me pics on Saturday and I'll include them in next week's Success Stories!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Fabric Fabric Fabric!

It seems likes bolts and bolts have been coming in!  Come check them out!  Yes there is some yarn too.  I thought this would be good for the Pirates Knit along but the yarn that looks black is chocolate.  :-(  Oh well it would still work if you want something a little different.

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Sunday again and it's a tad bit dreary and cold!

Wondering if Spring is every going to show!

Well I promised you finished stuff and I'm almost there on two things.

However, I will show you both.

First is my Laura Nelkin Pioneer Cuff!  All I need to do is get the clasp on but it took me too long to block to get that far to totally finish it!  Plus I want Kristen's advise on how to do that!  I will post another pic next week once that is done.  You can see the beads on the outside and if you look real close you can see the larger beads going down the middle!  Sorry about my blocking forks sticking out!


I also have been working on my baby penguin sweater for the Knit for Nature charity.  I will send you an email soon but I will admit you will be getting a whole bunch of them this week so I will wait another week until I send it!  However, this is how much I have done.  It's larger than it should be.  I'll be making several so this might be a store decoration.  I apparently have not been reading patterns well the last two weeks!


Have a great week!

Success Stories @Quilters Depot Retreat

First, It's time to get a new phone!

I lost two pictures.  I am so pissed at my phone because one of the ones I lost was the quilt everyone was talking about!

Anyone has a picture of Sarah's animal quilt send it to me!  I will then post.  This was the quilt and I am so sorry i lost it.  The second picture I do not even know what I lost :-(   Oh wait I lost JennE's gloves.  (sigh)  Sorry Jenn!  Bring them to knit klub and we will take a picture again!

Here are a few of the success stories though!  This is just a couple of the awesome work that was getting done!  There were soooooo many that got done.  I only took a picture of a few!  Great work everyone!

What's New @Quilters Depot

I will admit there are bolts in the supply room that need logged in.

Hopefully by the time you are reading this Monday afternoon I will have them logged in.  Oh who am I kidding.  I will be lucky to get them logged in.........lol

My goal is just to get unpacked from the retreat and have all the products back where you can all find them!

Wish me luck!

This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

Just got back from our Spring Retreat! Great time had by all.  

The one project I totally finished were my mittens!  They aren't perfect but since they are mine it doesn't matter!



The only other thing I worked on is I started my first sweater for the baby penguins.  I have it on my to do list to send you all more information!  If you were given the instruction at knit klub and you need help let me know.  It's in European vs American and parts of the pattern is missing. However, if you go to the website they have better instructions and so will you when I get my butt moving!
