Hello

Not much sewing around here. I caught the flu in the middle of August and it progressed to Asthma. Add the demands of work and life into the equation and you can imagine the rest.

I have not sewn a stitch, however,I am knitting a small bag. There is a small yarn store next my allergist's office. Last spring a knitted bag was displayed in the shop's window; it was knitted with a black cotton yarn and a lime green funky yarn. I am using the same black cotton yarn with a funky black yarn. Now I am looking for a beautiful handle, it's almost done, I need one more ball of funky yarn and done.

I've spent my time visiting blog land and enjoying it. I have a lot to share. I bought lots of fabrics this year, books, a 1929 table top sewing machine and I visited Seattle.

After reading Carolyn's blog regarding her stash, I have to confess that my stash is 3-4 or even 5 times bigger than Carolyn. My pattern stash is probably around 2000 (conservative number).
What I am going to do about this, it is time to purge. When and how more about this later...

I will post more about the above mentioned later.........

oh my goodness! That is one heck of a stash! I was so proud of myself that I used a length of oxford from stash to make a pair of pajama pants for my mom while she was visiting yesterday.

I hope you are feeling better, summer colds seem to be so much worse than the winter ones!

I'm sorry to hear you've been feeling so poorly and hope you're fully recovered soon. I love to knit-it's so portable. I'd love to see pics of your fabric and pattern stash!
if your stash is worst than Carolyn's that is bad because she has alot of fabric.
if your stash is worse than Carolyn's you are in trouble.

My cold is much better, I am planning to take the flu shot next month. Yes Carla I am in serious trouble. My stash date back to 1978 and to make matters worse, my co-worker mother-in law died in 2008 and she gifted me all her fabrics. My girlfriend grandmother died last January and she gave me her sewing machine, fabrics, tons of sewing supplies and many of her beautiful gowns and a channel type jacket. My neighbor used to work in a factory that made fabric and she cleaned out her garage and gave 3-suitcases full of beautiful fabric. HELPPPPPPPP

That makes for a humongous stash and glad that you are feeling better.

I hope you're feeling better and can get to using that great collection you have! I'd love to see the purse when you're done, I like knitting projects.
