Stitchin Saturday 53

2Heaven help us all.  It has been a solid year of BlinkingCat being a crafty blog.  I spent most of the year crocheting and listening to podcasts.  I shared with you different charities you can help with your crochet and knitting.  I did the Moogly CAL and gave you my hints on making the squares solid.  There were some pattern reviews, and some yarn reviews.  Overall I had a pretty great crafty year.  I hope you had as much fun as I did.

2018 is going to be even better.  I have started sewing clothes for myself.  I was informed by Mermaid that I need to make her some dresses too.  So there will be kid sewing to share at some point.  I am working on a bespoke quilt right now.  I just got in the quilt kit I bought with my Christmas money, so that makes 4 kits I have waiting to make for my house this year.

I have a few Make alongs that I am going to participate in.  There is the Moogly CAL 2019 – it is the same as last year with new squares.  I think I am going to make it in gray this year so that it can be given to any patient at the Ronald McDonald House.  Boys need blankets too.  There is a Solar System Blanket CAL that I am starting this weekend.  I am a week behind but I can catch up easy.  I will write up a post on it this week and let you know the details.  There is SewMyStyle2018.  I have a write up on it coming too.  I already did the first month’s project and I am hooked.  I have 2 more projects ready to go.  Both a jean bottom kind of thing.

I am not going to be doing the monthly round up of make-alongs this year.  I did a poll in December and very few people were using them. So I am just going to keep you updated on ones that I am participating in.  After I started the Moogly CAL last year I am hooked.  I love doing these things.  I just found out that Marly Bird has a Facebook group that is hosting a different CAL every month.  I am so going to be doing that.


modsew1400This week I am going to tell you about the Modern Sewciety Podcast.  She has the best interviews about all things sewing and quilting.  You need to check it out.  I can’t narrow down my favorite episode.  I love the quilt interviews just as much as the clothes ones.  If your a little craft scattered like I am your going to love this one.
