Stash Report: Week 37 of 2016

It's been a nice weekend.  A relaxing one which is a welcome contrast to our busy week.  Drama Teen and I drove to Tulsa on Thursday to meet with a representative of one of the colleges she's considering attending and then had dinner before heading home.  I'll have to spend some time this afternoon going over her applications so she can get them sent in.  I still hope to get in a bit of stitching time though.  

It was a good week for stash busting.  Finishing the borders on the Poinsettias quilt and making a backing for the Zombie quilt really helped with moving fabric to the out column.  

Used last week:  4.68 yards
Used year to date:  43.70 yards
Added year to date:  33.75 yards
Net used in 2016:  9.95 yards

By the time I finish the backing for the Zombie quilt I should have used more fabric than I did last year.  Which is good because I've added more this year than I did last year. 

The schedule this week meant I missed getting in my 15 minutes of stitching time a couple of nights, but it still wasn't a bad week.

Days with 15 minutes of stitching time this week:  5 out of 7 days
Days in September:  8 out of 10 days
Days in 2016:  201 out of 254 days

I'm doing much better on getting into the sewing room than I did last year.  Maybe that's because I have some hard deadlines for a few quilts next year.  

In addition to spending more time in the sewing room this year, I've been walking a bit more.  This little lovely made my evening last week.  

Linking up with Patchwork Times and then I'm off to take advantage of the cooler temps do yard work for a bit.

That's a great photo! Nice work on your stash too. You are so consistent with your work that it puts me to shame.
