It's been a slow weekend around here, which is good. I didn't get much sewing done yesterday, but did get some much needed cleaning done in the sewing room. I do hope to get some serious stitching in this afternoon once laundry is caught up.
For lunch yesterday we ventured out to the new coffee shop that opened recently. Drama Teen ordered a Coke-a-Cola and it was delivered to our table in a tall glass bottle. She was a bit surprised, she's never had a soda from a glass bottle. I can remember when glass bottles were the only way you could buy soda at the grocery store.
After her first drink, she said it definitely tasted better than what you get in the plastic bottles. I didn't think to get pictures of our food, we were all hungry. But the food was good, the latte I had was heavenly, and Drama Teen will definitely go back for more Coke-a-Cola served in a glass bottle.
The business trip to Houston took me out of the sewing room for three days, so I didn't get much sewing done last Sunday. But since I finished up the back for Mon Ami, this week doesn't look so bad.
Used last week: 1.58 yards
Added last week: 9 yards
Used for 2013: 57.46 yards
Added for 2013: 157.83 yards
Net stashed for 2013: 100.37 yards
I did push some buttons last week. Connecting Threads had their batiks on sale. I'm hoping to start a batik quilt for Drama Teen this month and decided to order some of the sale batik to use as backing for it.
The black batik at the top is what I ordered for the back. Since I'm pretty sure you can never have too many batiks, I also couldn't resist ordering a yard of the blue, red and yellow fabrics as well. Even with this addition, I'm just a bit over my goal of keeping the net stashed for 2013 below 100 yards. Hopefully by next weekend I'll be back on track.
That's it for me this week. For more stash stuff, check out Patchwork Times.
