Yesterday was beautiful and warm, in the 80s. Today's highs are supposed to be in the 50's, definitely a good day for a sewing room retreat. I was contemplating staying in my pjs for the day, but I think not. Jeans and an old sweatshirt would be warmer. My sewing room is pretty chilly on these kind of days, at least till the sun gets into the western sky.
I'm not doing so hot on the fabric diet this year. I bought fabric yesterday. There are plans for most of it.
The blue yardage is for the last graduation quilt. The reds are for this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt, as is the green. The blue polka dot is likely to end up in the last graduation quilt. These all came from a new quilt shop that opened in town last weekend. They are just getting started, so they don't have a big selection of fabrics, but they've got some fun classes scheduled over the next few months. It would be nice to have a shop in town, rather than having to run to the big city. But they'll only be able stay if they do well, so I'm trying to do my part in helping them get off on the right foot. (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)
Here's the damage:
Used year to date: 12.72 yards
Added year to date: 59.05 yards
Net stashed: 46.33 yards
I still have all year to overcome this early purchases, so I'm hopeful of reaching the black before the end of the year.
This week was also pretty good in terms of finding time to sew. I managed 7 out of 7 days again this week. So I've not missed a day yet this year. Those 15 minute to hour long sessions each evening really do help move the projects along. All the blocks for Geometry are made, so I was able to start sewing the top together last night. Fingers crossed that it's a finished flimsy by the end of the day.
Linking up with Patchwork Times for this week's stash report.
