It's 9 F (-13 C) this morning. Thankfully we have no place to go today and can stay in out of the cold. It wasn't quite as cold yesterday when we ventured out for part 2 of Drama Teen's birthday celebration of lunch with friends followed by ice skating. It had snowed in Tulsa overnight and the drive down was quite pretty.
The photo looks like it was taken in black and white, but that's actually a color shot. If it hadn't been for the snow, it would have looked quite dreary.
My sewing time this week has been spent learning how to paper piece those Vintage Dress blocks. I don't have one of those finished, so the fabric going out this week is just 3 Allietare blocks from Monday's design wall post.
Used last week: 0.40 yards
Used in January: 0.68 yards
Used year to date: 0.68 yards
Purchased year to date: 0 yards
Net used for 2016: 0.68 yards
Still no fabric in for the year, so the fabric diet is holding for now. Last year I didn't buy any fabric till July. Since I've got a few quilts to make this year, I'm not sure I'll last that long as I'm already fairly certain I need to find a medium purple for Zombies in Paris.
This year I'm also tracking how many days I manage to make it to the sewing room for at least 15 minutes. The more I'm in the sewing room, the better chance of having a reduction in the stash and the UFO pile. It was a good week on that front too.
15 minute stitching days this week: 7 days
15 minute stitching days in January: 9 days
15 minute stitching days in 2016: 9 days
That's the summary of my stitching efforts this week. How did yours go? You can check out how other fabric diets are going over at Patchwork Times.
