It's been a crazy and busy week. The saga of the broken washer continues, so it was back to the laundromat yesterday. We have more family coming to visit today. Last week we had Drama Teen's college orientation which required a 2 day out of town stay. When I got back to work on Wednesday my boss informed that I'd be moving into a new position this next Thursday. That requires that all of my project work be wrapped up this week. So most of today (before the family gets here) will be dedicated to writing reports rather than playing in the sewing room. Bummer. But that's how it goes sometimes.
Blooms and Butterflies is a finished flimsy, it will makes it debut on tomorrow's design wall post. All the border fabric got counted in this week's stash report.
Used last week: 1.59 yards
Used year to date: 35.61 yards
Added year to date: 215.55 yards
Net added year to date: 179.94 yards
Unfortunately the added column also got bigger this week. Drama Teen had college orientation this week, so I took the opportunity to check out the local quilt shops (another reason to visit her at college). I picked up a few fat quarters in colors that will be needed for this year's RSC quilt.
I'll need 16 small fan blocks of the orange and red violet when we get to those colors. My stash isn't very extensive for either of those colors so stocking up just made sense. I visited our local quilt shop yesterday on the way home from running errands. Of course you have to support the local shop or they don't stay in business.
The squiggly lines yardage would make a really cool background for a scrappy quilt using just the cool colors. I just couldn't resist the butterflies. No plans for either of these pieces just yet. I'm sure something will come to me.
I missed one day of stitching this week due to Drama Teen's orientation. Parent orientation pretty much wore me out and we didn't get back to the hotel till late. All I wanted was bed, so any thoughts of hand stitching evaporated pretty quickly. But I did manage to find 15 minutes the rest of the week. So I've managed to find at stitching time for 153 out of the 161 days so far this year. That's a 95% success rate. Not bad. The effort is showing up in completions for this year and in fabric out.
Linking up with QuiltPaintCreate for this week's stash report.
