Day 18 of Family Sew 12 Challenge

Made another basketball journal for the assistant coach. She wasn't at a lot of the games, and I forgot about her :( Thank goodness the team is having an after-season celebration this week!

Also made the baseball journal for my co-worker.

Finished the basketball journals for Annalise's team! Won't the girls be surprised at the championship game?

Showed the journal to one of my co-workers, and she ordered one in baseball fabric for her grandson's birthday!

Day 15 of Family Sew 12 Challenge

February Day 3.

Today I stitched 4 basketball journal covers for Annalise's basketball team. These journal covers are an in the hoop embroidery machine project from

These journal covers are quickly becoming my "go-to" project when I need a gift for any reason. The cover holds a small notebook, and is perfect to slip into bookbags, a purse, or jeans pocket. I made them for Annalise's soccer team last fall (with soccer fabric, of course), and included one in the set I made for the school fall festival. Her class' theme was Road Trip, so I made the journal cover out of Route 66 fabric!

Day 14 of Family Sew 12 Challenge

February Day 2

Today I worked on the knit scrap yarn afghan for Annalise. I am on the third side of the outer border.

My parents came to visit this weekend, and Mom and I spent some time going through my yarn stash. Mom has been working on knitted and crocheted scarves as part of her projects. I gave her 2 garbage bags of yarn that I won't use. Mom finished 2 scarves while she was here, so she is working fast! Annalise helped with organizing, and I was able to get lots of yarn into 2 carriers. It is all stacked neat, and grouped by colors, so sstarting a new scarf won't mean having to search for the yarn that I want. Should have taken pictures of the before and after of the stash, but didn't think about it in time!
