Stash Management - Week 19 of 2016
Happy Mother's Day! Mine got off to a bit of a late start, I slept in this morning. Not because it was Mother's Day, but because Drama Teen kept me out way past my bedtime last night. DT conned me into buying tickets to see Pentatonix early this year. They are amazing live, so I'm glad we went.
My plan for today is to spend some significant time in my sewing room watching movies and stitching. A one day solo retreat. It's my family's Mother's Day gift to me. But before I head up to get comfortable for the day, it's time to look at last week's stash and time management progress.
Not much going out last week. I've been sewing Allietare together and the only fabric going out has been the setting triangles.
Used last week: 0.43 yards
Used year to date: 25.28 yards
Purchased year to date: 17.75 yards
Net used for 2016: 7.53 yards
The yardage going out will pick up a bit when I add the borders and make the backing for Allitare. That should happen in the next two weeks.
On the time management front, I did a pretty good job of getting into the sewing room most days this week.
Days with 15 minutes of stitching time this week: 6 days
Days in May: 6 out of 7
Days this year: 105 out of 128
It's amazing how much gets done even with just 15 minutes a night in the sewing room. Granted usually it ends up being more than just 15 minutes. But those short sessions of cutting fabrics, pinning pieces and stitching seams during the week really do add up.
Wishing you an amazing Mother's Day. Now I'm off to enjoy mine.
Linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times for the weekly stash report.
