Stash Report: Week 49 of 2016

Yesterday went so fast. Weekends always do, but with the extra holiday stuff it seems time moves even faster.  I'll have a couple of days off later this week, hopefully that will help me feel a little more caught up.  

Finding a few minutes here and there to sew hasn't been too much of a problem.  Though Drama Teen and I did wander down to the big city for some shopping one night last week and we got home a bit late for any stitching.  So I managed to find some time 6 out of the last 7 days to spend in my sewing room.  I have a finish to show off later this week if the weather cooperates and allows me to get some decent photos.  

There was a little headway on getting back to black on my stash usage. 

Used last week:  0.37 yards
Used year to date:  58.35 yards
Added year to date:  69.02 yards
Net added year to date:  10.67 yards

It's very rare that I'll use more than 10 yards in a month.  I'll get closer to break even this year, but probably won't end in the net used column come January 1st.  But you never know, maybe I'll get lots done the last week of the year.    

The tree's not up yet, but some of the other decorations have slowly made their way out of storage.  Drama Teen always gets her Dad a nutcracker for Christmas.  

Now he has enough for a band of sorts.  Need to find him a drummer this year.  

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

Your hubby's nutcrackers collection is too cute. There has to be a drummer out there somewhere. I'm hoping for more sewing time between Christmas and New Year to use for stash. Maybe that will the case for you too.
