Stash Report: Week 35 of 2016

I'm not sure where this week went.  We've had a lot going on in the evenings.  Parent night was Monday.  It's a bit of a jolt to think that was our last one for Drama Teen.  I worked late one night and then had a girls night out with DT another evening.  That didn't leave much time for stitching this week.  Most of what's going out of the stash this week happened last Sunday. 

Used last week:  1.33 yards
Used year to date:  38.63 yards
Added year to date:  32.75 yards
Net used in 2016:  5.88 yards

For me that's a pretty good week.  I should get to the backing for the Zombie quilt this week.  That will bump up those outgoing numbers nicely.  There wasn't much time spent in the sewing room, but there's been some time spent in EQ working out the piecing for the Zombie back and playing with the fabric placement in the next graduation quilt.  That counts towards my 15 minutes of stitching time this week.  Good thing or else this week's report would be pretty minimal. 

Days with 15 minutes of stitching time this week:  6 out of 7 days
Days in August:  22 out of 27 days
Days in 2016:  189 out of 240 days

Unfortunately there has not been an opportunity to sew this weekend.  We've been in Kansas City attending a funeral for one of My Guy's brother-in-laws.  If you've been watching the weather, KC received about 5 inches of rain Friday night, that made driving difficult to say the least.  The storms rolling in over the plains were pretty impressive to watch, not so fun to be driving in. 

There were tornado watches all around Friday night, but we didn't have any tornadoes.  It hit a lot worse north of here.  

That's it for me this week.  Linking up with Patchwork Times for this week's stash report.

Congratulations on the flimsy stage for Zombies in Paris, completing your dress, and the close to finished poinsettias. Your commitment to 15 mins a day is certainly paying off. So glad you are safe, and sorry for the loss. Good luck facing this year. I'm sure it will be filled with both memories of the past, joy in the present, and great anticipation of what is come. I think it is great DT commissioned the quilts for her friends.

Yes, 15 minutes of play has been very successful for you. Glad you were in a safe zone as those storms were awfull.

I am glad you were able to spend some time stitching on Sunday. I am sorry to hear about your Guy's BIL, that has to be hard on the whole family.

Your year end numbers are still looking good and you are moving in the right direction for busting your stash. When you get the backing done on your Zombie quilt, that will really help too.
