My family is back home safe and sound after their trip to Colorado with Drama Teen's school. Both were happy, but tired. Not sure what's on the agenda for today, other than DT asked to be allowed to sleep until she woke up on her own. I'm sure photo viewing will be part of today. They both came home with full SD cards.
A lot of sewing happened while they were gone, but it's not really reflected in the stash report. I think because I'm working on smaller blocks and two of the projects have blocks with a lot of pieces, so progress is a bit slow.
Used last week: 0.68 yards
Added last week: 0 yards
Used for 2012: 18.54 yards
Added for 2012: 161 yards
Net stashed for 2012: 142.46 yards
A little out, nothing in. Not a bad week. Fat Quarter Stars still needs the backing cut and sewn together. If I get that done this week, next week's report will look much better.
I'm still working on getting my stash organized. Shelves were installed in the stash closet back in April and all the fabric was moved out of the plastic totes onto the shelves. Then I started ironing all the newly washed fabric and folding it to a consistent size to go on the shelves. In mid April there were two totes completely full of fabric that needed to be pressed and folded (on the left below). I've been pressing at least one piece of yardage before I start sewing for the day. It's made a dent.
As of yesterday, the "to be ironed pile" is down to one tote which is about one third full (on the right above). So not bad progress. It's been nice to get all the fabric pressed, folded, sorted and onto the shelves. Now I can see what's in the stash without pawing through all those totes. There is still a lot of organizing to do. It's been a slow process, but it's getting there.
That's it for my stash report this week. I'm linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times this week.
