Last week went fast. That head cold kept me sidelined the first part of the week. But once Wednesday rolled around, I was feeling almost normal. I did spend yesterday afternoon in the sewing room, but didn't get much stitching done. A lot of time was spent prepping the back of the McCall's Mystery quilt for shipping. Today I'll do the finished flimsy. That has to be my least favorite part of the quilting process, the finial pressing and clean up.
So though not a lot of stitching got done, I've reached the point on almost all the active projects where I'm finishing blocks. That's the point I count my fabric as out. So this week looks pretty good in terms of stash usage.
Used last week: 2.31 yards
Used in February: 2.19 yards
Used year to date: 11.46 yards
Purchased year to date: 0 yards
Net used for 2016: 11.46 yards
The big blocks for the Midnight Mystery quilt use almost a half yard of fabric, so finishing up one of those makes a big jump in the numbers.
It also helps that I've been really good about getting in at least 15 minutes of stitching every day.
This week: 7 out of 7 days
This month: 6 out of 6 days
This year: 37 out of 37 days
It's amazing how just a few minutes a night can make a difference in progress. I usually end up spending about 45 minutes in the sewing room each evening.
I've also been trying to capture a photo a day as one of my 2016 goals. I haven't done as well with that goal, I missed a few days when I was sick. Wednesday's beautiful sunrise got me back on track with the camera.
It's always nice to start off the day with a pretty view. Have a wonderful week. Linking up with Patchwork Times.
