The work week was crazy, but the weekend has been a slow one. Even better, Drama Teen seems to be on mend. If they had not had a snow day on Tuesday, she would not have missed a day of school. That would be a first since the end of January. She's been having a lot of problems with respiratory issues since she's had the flu. My Guy is home after being on the road for most of last week. The project he was working on is done, so he should be home for a while.
After such a crazy work week, I decided Saturday was really a day of rest and didn't do much around the house. I did spend a lot of time in the sewing room. I can't say fabric is flying into projects, but I've definitely been using more than usual. Which is good because I pushed a few buttons this week. I fell in love with a new fabric line over at Connecting Threads.
I may have plans for this fabric. I have a friend who is probably going to retire this year and this fabric fits her to a T. So I'm going to play around in EQ see if I can come up with something for her.
So here's the damage:
Used last week: 1.88 yards
Added last week: 17 yards
Used for 2013: 13.97 yards
Added for 2013: 20.75 yards
Net stashed for 2013: 6.78 yards
I'm not so far in the hole at this point, that making a single quilt back won't get me out of it. I'm on border 4 of 6 for the Sofa Quilt, so a pieced back should be in my future.
I definitely did my part for the economy this week. Check out the links over at Patchwork Times for more indicators on the economic health of the fabric industry.
