Week 32 of 2016: Slow Stitching and a Stash Report
It rained yesterday. That may not seem like news, but it's August in Oklahoma. It's usually pretty parched this time of year. It's nice to look out the window and see green rather than brown. Plus the rain took the temps down to the mid 80s from the low 100s. Unfortunately with the added humidity, it doesn't really feel a lot cooler.
The humidity outside made it a good afternoon to hang out in the sewing room. Progress was made on my August OMG, two more Zombie blocks are done. That's pretty much all the fabric that went out this week.
Used last week: 0.32 yards
Used year to date: 36.30 yards
Purchased year to date: 28.75 yards
Net used in 2016: 7.55
I did a lot better with finding time to stitch this last week.
Days with 15 minutes of stitching time this week: 6 out of 7 days
Days in July: 19 out of 31 days
Days in August: 5 out of 6 days
Days in 2016: 172 out of 219 days
I was able to bump up my stitching time last week by finally getting some time while we were on vacation to do a little hand work. We weren't up and out quite so early the last weekend of vacation, so I was able to pull out my long term emboridery project and make a bit of progress.
I've still got a long way to go on this project. Not surprising since the only time I work on it is when I'm not home. Maybe that will change next year and I'll find a way to incorporate some slow stitching time into each week.
Now I need to get going on laundry and other chores. Have a great Sunday.
