From 80 and sunny on Friday to 47 and raining on Saturday. It's typical spring weather for Oklahoma. But boy, 47 definitely feels much colder after an 80 degree day then after a 32 degree day. Saturday was definitely a good day to spend inside.
It's been a busy week, but I still managed to get in at least 15 minutes of sewing time in each night, so for the year I've managed that 70 days out of 70. Definitely a record for me. I put the final stitches into the binding for Poinsettias earlier in the week. No photos yet. It was pretty dreary yesterday, but it's supposed to be sunny today. And I got started on the last graduation quilt yesterday. So it was a really good week.
Before I could get started on the First Amendment quilt, I had to wash all the fabric for it. Since I'm going to haul it down to the washer anyway, I grab any other fabrics in the color range that haven't been washed. After a load each of red, white and blue, my to be pressed pile is pretty tall.
Like cutting up scraps, pressing tends to fall to the bottom of my to do list. The blue was already pressed by the time I took this picture, but the top newsprint fabric has since been pressed and the red will probably get pressed today. I'll have to work my way down from there.
Since I count my fabric as it get's made into blocks and borders, all the fabric from Poinsettias has already been counted. But I made some progress on En Provence this week, as well as on the new quilt project. That's the bulk of what went out this week.
Used this week: 0.69 yards
Used year to date: 19.27 yards
Added year to date: 59.05 yards
Net added: 39.78 yards
There was nothing in, so I'm slowly chipping away at the hole created at the first of the year.
I'm hoping for a solid afternoon of stitching today. The plan is to focus on making good progress on the First Amendment Quilt, plus get the binding on Bejeweled.
Linking up with Patchwork Times for this week's stash report.
