It's cold this morning. The high is projected to be only 7 degrees higher than the it is now (which is about 20 F). Thankfully I have no place to be so I can hang out inside all day. After a full frontal attack on the laundry, I do hope to spend some time in the sewing room this afternoon.
It's not been a bad week of stitching. The McCall's Mystery quilt is now a finished flimsy. No pictures as yet, it's much too big to fit on the design wall. Not a lot of fabric out this week as most of the pieced border on that mystery quilt had already been counted as out.
Used last week: 1.17 yards
Used in January: 1.85 yards
Used year to date: 1.85 yards
Purchased year to date: 0 yards
Net used for 2016: 1.85 yards
Most of the outgoing comes from finishing a few Allietare blocks. Next week should be really good as the next step for the McCall's Mystery is to make the backing for it.
This year I'm also keeping up with how many days I manage to find at least 15 minutes to stitch. Time in the sewing room equals progress and more fabric out.
This week: 7 out of 7 days
This month: 16 out of 16 days
This year: 16 out of 366 days
So far I'm doing a good job of not succumbing to the gravity well of the recliner in the evening.
That's good progress on two of my sewing room goals. I'm also doing well on this year's photography goals. My Guy has challenged me to take a picture a day this year. We've done this before, but it's been a few years. Typically taking shots of a WIP or two will save the day if I need a shot at the end of the day. But I didn't really have any progress to photograph yesterday, so that meant finding something else. My Guy opted for a walk, but with temps hovering around freezing, that wasn't one of my options. Here's what I came up with for my photo of the day.
That's it for me today. Now it's back to the battle of laundry and probably a second cup of coffee while I take a peak at who is winning the battle of the stash over at Patchwork Times.
