Last week's great numbers didn't carry over to this week. Almost no sewing this week. Other things in life just took priority this last week. I did order some fabric this week, I'll explain why in a bit. Here's the numbers.
Used this week: 0 yards
Added this week: 9 yards
Used year year to date: 16.69 yards
Added year to date: 16 yards
Net Used for 2011: 0.69 yards
Fabric Budget: 13 yards for April to June
Bought/Budget: 9/13 yards
This is the first week all year that I haven't used some fabric. My Guy was out of town most of the week which meant I had to pick up some of his manly chores. That seriously impacted my sewing time for the week.
I ordered fabric to make a quilt for a friend's daughter. Two weeks ago she found out that her beautiful 4 year old daughter had a very aggressive brain tumor. The young lady has since had surgery to remove the tumor, but now faces a long road of chemo and radiation therapy. I want to make a quilt so she has something pretty to look at while she deals with all her treatments. This young lady loves pink and is a girly girl. Since Kiddo is not a fan of pink and tended to love superheros more than princesses, I don't have a lot of girly girl pink fabric. What did I order? Castles.
These are part of a striped fabric that also includes a row of geese that I will probably use.
and here are the coordinating fabrics:
I don't have a final design for this quilt yet, but I'm thinking 8" square blocks of the castles with some type of sashing. I want fast so I can get this to her quickly. Hopefully next week I'll have a little more time to work on sewing projects and can get this one started.
