In spite of all the sewing time, there's not that much outgoing on the stash report.
Used last week: 0.18 yards
Used year to date: 35.12 yards
Purchased year to date: 25.75 yards
Net used for 2016: 9.37 yards
A lot of time yesterday was cutting fabrics for both Blooms and Butterflies as well as for the next Vintage Dress. I expect a bit more to go out this week after all the prep over the weekend. That should be especially true if I keep up my goal of spending at least 15 minutes in the sewing room every day. I did pretty well at that last week.
Days with 15 minutes of stitching this week: 7 out of 7 days
Days in July: 9 out of 9 days
Days in 2016: 157 out of 191 days
Progress was also made on the stash closet reorganization. I've been slowly pressing and refolding fabrics in my stash so they stack nicely on the shelving in the fabric closet. This is how the closet looked back in 2013.

The big accomplishment was getting all the fabrics in the bottom shelf of the picture on the right all pressed and sorted into their proper place. Actually after these pictures were taken, I reorganized that 2nd shelf so that the fabrics weren't leaning anymore. Folding and stacking the fabrics makes it much easier for see what's in the stash. The next goal is to fold and organize the fabrics that are on the third shelf in the right hand photo.
Linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times for the weekly stash report.
