We had lots of trick or treaters last night. My Guy and Drama Teen spent the afternoon carving the pumpkins, which as usual were a big hit with the little ones.
They went with the Jack of Hearts. Drama Teen's reasoning was that it was a Jack o' lantern, so why not? At any rate, they both had a great time with it and the kids loved it.
Did you set your clock back this morning? The one in our bedroom does that automatically, but we need to fix the other clocks in the house. I'm looking forward to the earlier sunrise, but dreading the earlier sunset. It will be dark leaving work, which is a bit of a downer.
Speaking of downers, this weeks stash report is a bit dismal. Not much stitching going on. Between napping and the trick or treaters, I've not managed to make it into the sewing room this weekend. So here's the numbers:
Used last week: 0.11 yards
Used in October: 8.81 yards
Used year to date: 38.79 yards
Purchased year to date: 24.25 yards
Net used for 2015: 38.79 yards
Even though the report doesn't look great this week, it's not bad for the year. I've used more fabric then I did last year and have bought a lot less than the previous five years. For the first time in six years, there is a net loss from the stash. So 2015 has been a good stash management year. Hopefully I can maintain that till the end of the year.
