Stash Report for Week 23 of 2015

Where did the last week go?  It was one of those weeks where there was lots to do, but nothing seemed to get done.  Since mid-year is almost here, there is lots to do at work.  It was a week of going in early and staying late.  After being on the computer all day at work, the home computer wasn't something I wanted to mess with.  That explains my absence in blogland, no posts written, none read.  I'll make up for that some this morning.  

I didn't do a lot of stitching this week either.  The long days at work made it really hard to get myself up the stairs to the sewing room.  All that went out was stitched last Sunday. 

Used last week:  0.14 yards
Used in May:  2.62 yards
Used in June:  0 yards
Used year to date:  15.26 yards
Purchased year to date:  0 yards

I'm not using fabric at a blinding clip, but at least the incoming flow has been has been very minimal this year.  Nothing in for 5 months. Since I've been working on UFOs that have all the fabrics they need, it's been easy to just delete the emails and stay out of the quilt shops.

While Drama Teen and I were clothes shopping yesterday (both of us needed shorts), My Guy went to the local Lowes and came home with a few flowers to brighten up the back patio.  The daisies were my favorite.  

I'm not sure why but the red makes me think summer.  The temperatures were in the 90's yesterday, so maybe that's why. 

After ditching chores for the shopping expedition yesterday there is lots to do around here.  I do hope to get in some stitching this afternoon, before I have to buckle down this evening and get some reports finished for work.  

Have a great week.  You can see more stash status reports over at Patchwork Times.

I am so impressed at the way you are plugging away at your stash this year. And I love the pink daisies too. So neat that your dh is the one who brought them home.

Adding 0 yards this year is a big accomplishment, I think!

Hoping your work load slows enough to get you back into the sewing room this week. The red daisy is lovely!

It is impressive that you haven't bought anything yet this year - good job! Hope you had a chance to do some stitching today!

Beautiful daisies. I don't think I've seen them at our Lowe's. It's even better that your DH bought them for you. He's a sweetie. Good job on holding steady on your fabric buying.
