A little departure from my normal schedule today to show you guys a little something different. Have you ever wondered about this list in my Ongoing Projects?
A Box Full of Alterations and Random "Fix It" Projects.
Well today is the day that I will show you all what was in that box and get rid of that item in my Ongoing Projects!
I bought this fabulous purse, carried it for a week and the huge silver grommet fell off. So annoying! So I figured I could fix it....
I zig-zag stitched the circle opening, to seal the layers together, and thought I would try to work the grommet back on, holding it with glue.
Then I noticed the other side was coming undone also. So I got aggravated, and threw it in the "maybe I will do something later" pile. Maybe one day I will come back to this project.
Quilt Bee Blocks (Click HERE
to see them)
Two shirts that needed new hems. I hated the elastic at the bottom, so I cut if off and sewed in a normal 1" hem. Sorry no finished pictured, but you get the idea!
Organizing my OUT OF CONTROL Fabric Stash (65% complete)
Bottled Rainbows Ticker Tape Quilt-Along (5 of 16 blocks complete)
Lily's Quilts Quilt-Along (Using Sherbet Pips)

A Box Full of Alterations and Random "Fix It" Projects. (This will be GONE next week!)
I wore this shirt 2 times, only to have the elastic dry rot and basically stretch out 3 times the original length. Don't you just love when that happens!
I yanked out the old elastic and undid a bit of stitching and then just replaced the elastic (on the inside) and stitched it on, and then sealed the open side seams. Good as new!
This Week's Stats:
New Projects - 2
Completed Projects - 1 (This will stay on the list because I have more to make!)
Currently in Progress - 8
What happens when you give your toddler your favorite necklace? Oh yeah, he manages to break it in 100 pieces.
Fixed it! Yeah!

Cheater Panel that I will turn into a zipper closed pillow case. This project is also on my "Ongoing Project" list individually now and is a current wip.
Those were the six projects in that box! Four are complete, and the other two are now on my project list! It felt good to go through that box and knock some stuff out. Now I can wear my shirts and necklace! Here's hoping you had a successful week too!
