Weekends always seem to just fly by. We had stuff to do in the big city yesterday, so we weren't home for most of the day. We had a nice lunch, plus Drama Teen and I had a nice chat about how things were going at school. So it wasn't a wasted day, especially since I got to sew for most of the evening.
There's been a lot of stitching going on this week. But not much to to show for it on the stash report.
Used last week: 0.25 yards
Used in January: 2.10 yards
Used year to date: 2.10 yards
Purchased year to date: 0 yards
Net used for 2016: 2.10 yards
The back for the McCall's Mystery quilt should get done this week and that will provide a nice jump in the stash numbers. I had to piece the back and it's taken longer than I thought it would (quilt math tripped me up a bit).
As part of the effort to use more stash and finish more quilts in 2016, I've also been counting those days where more than 15 minutes gets spent in the sewing room. The thought there is that more time in the sewing room equals more progress on projects.
This week: 7 out of 7 days
This month: 23 out of 23 days
This year: 23 out of 23 days
It may be tough to keep up the momentum this week. I have a conference to attend the first three days of next week. Though I'll be home each evening, it won't be till much later than normal.
It's still pretty chilly in our part of the world, with not much sunshine this last week. Though we've had it really easy compared to north and east of here. I felt the need for something to remind me that spring will come before too much longer.
The bright pop of color on the kitchen table is a nice reminder that in a few weeks they'll be blooming again.
