Both Poinsettias and the Zombie quilt are at the add borders stage. Next to backings, that's one of the fastest ways to use yardage. The two narrow borders have been added to Poinsettias, that's most of what went out this week.
Used last week: 0.51 yards
Used year to date: 37.30 yards
Added year to date: 32.75 yards
Net used in 2016: 4.55 yards
The widest borders will probably get added this week to both Poinsettias and Zombies, so that should make for a good week next week. Then come the backings for both. That will really help with the stash numbers. You can see more stash reports over at Patchwork Times.
I've also been keeping up with how many days at least 15 minutes of sewing happens. The more of those 15 minute session, the more likely it will end up being a hour session, so the more that gets done each week.
Days with 15 minutes of stitching time this week: 5 out of 7 days
Days in August: 16 out of 20 days
Days in 2016: 183 out of 233
I've been told it's easier to focus on a goal if you have a good measure of your progress. This one works for me.
We've had gorgeous weather in Oklahoma the last week, much color temps than typical. I took advantage of the lovely weather and wandered out with my camera. I'll close today with some end of summer images.

Have a great week!
