Slow Stitching and Stash Stuff
We are waking up to storms this Easter Morning. We attended services last night, so won't have to venture out in this mess until the worst of it is past.
Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes for My Guy's niece. She's doing much better, but it will be a bit before she can be released from the hospital. We spent most of the afternoon with her and her family. It's nice to see everyone, but we all agreed this is isn't our preferred venue for a family reunion.
I did get in some slow stitching while we were hanging out elsewhere.
There hasn't been a lot of time just hanging, so I'm still working on getting the binding sewn down the first side. I'm off tomorrow, so I'm hoping to make lots of progress on this quilt then.
In stash news, there's another addition:
Some very pretty Artisan Batiks. My Guy has agreed it's time for a new quilt on our bed. I've not picked a new pattern yet, but we agreed on batiks and bright. So once the graduation quilts are all done, hopefully I'll have a pattern picked out for this quilt.
Here's the damage for the week:
Used this week: 1.51 yards
Used year to date: 24 yards
Added year to date: 110.3 yards
Net added: 86.3 yards
My fabric diet has gone out the window this year, but I'm OK with that for now. Some stash enhancement isn't a bad thing since I've been mainly adding blenders. I've also been doing really well with finding time to sew each day, 105 out of 105 days for 2017. That's definitely a record.
Enjoy your family this Sunday. We definitely have plans for that the rest of today.
