Stash Report - Week 43 of 2014

The calendar says it's fall, but you sure couldn't tell that from the temperatures yesterday.  The high was 88 F, so it fell more like summer than fall.  The majority of the trees are still green, if you look hard you can see a few that have put on their fall colors.  But there is one thing that assures me it really is fall, the change in the morning and afternoon light.  It's softer and more golden, absolutely perfect for photography. 

Which is what I did yesterday rather than spend time in the sewing room.  We made the trek to Tulsa to run a few errands and do some much needed shopping in the morning.  The afternoon was dedicated to walking in the park along the Arkansas River with our cameras.  The light was just gorgeous.  

As I said in yesterday's post, this week has been a bit of a zoo.  I did get in some stitching early in the week, but not much the later half.  Here's this weeks stash reduction report:

Used last week: 1.96 yards
Used in October:  5.14 yards
Used year to date:  25.91

My goal of using at least 1.5 yards per week was met, even with the lack of time in the sewing room.   As sad as it is, the 5 yards out this month is my second best for the year.  I'm going to need to get busy if I want to make my revised goal of at least 40 yards out by the end of December.  

That's it for me this week.  There are more stash stories posted over at Patchwork Times.

You should enter your picture in the state fair - it is a beautiful picture.

Any sewing/quilting time is better than none. Congrats on reaching your weekly goal.
