Stash Stuff for Week 24 of 2017

It's a stormy Sunday morning here in northern Oklahoma.  Lots of lightening and thunder, very impressive stuff.  It's been a frustrating weekend.  The washer shopping didn't go very well.  The local big box store doesn't have any of the models we want in stock.  Two to three weeks to get one on order.  We do have one small appliance store in town, we'd never been there.  They have one I like, lower price than the big box store, but he sold the last one he had in the stock.  He supposed to get more this week.  Fingers crossed that I have a new washer before next weekend.

It wasn't a totally desolate week in terms of finding time to sew.  I did manage 5 out of 7 days to find 15 minutes to stitch.  But most days this week it really was just 15 minutes.  I did take Friday evening off from the report writing.  You can only stare at a computer screen for so long.  And I got in a bit of sewing last night after dinner.  I finished piecing the back for Blooms and Butterflies, so there's a bit of stash going out this week. 

Used last week:  2.67 yards
Used year to date:  38.28 yards
Added year to date:  215.55 yards
Net added year to date:  177.27 yards

At least being busy with work stuff keeps me from clicking on any of those quilt shop adds that show up in the email.  There was nothing in this week for a change. 

The "must do immediately stuff" should be finished by Friday.  My plan is to indulge in a sanity replenishing solo sewing retreat day next weekend.  I'll be more than ready for one by then.  

I did get in a couple of walks in this week hoping to avoid the typical shoulder and back problems that occur when sitting at the computer for long periods of time.  The Black Eyed Susans are blooming.  Aren't they pretty?

Linking up with quiltpaintcreate for this week's stash report.  


  1. Hope the washer saga is resolved soon and the reports for work too. Good job still making some time for sewing and hope that all comes together so you can sew next weekend! The flowers are lovely!

  2. I like the idea of a "sanity replenishing solo sewing retreat day next weekend". Maybe we can sew solo together using internet at certain times to show progress. Our problem child is the dryer so I am making trips to get them dry.

  3. It's so hard to be without a washer! Hope you find one this week.
    Lucky you getting walks in. The heat and humidity were so bad this week I had to exercise indoors.

  4. Hope you get the washer soon. Good for you for holding out for just what you want. The flowers are gorgeous!

  5. I love love black eyed susan's--one of my favorite flowers and I miss them living here in Fl--booo!!!
    Hope the week goes fast and well for you--
    enjoy the moments, di

  6. Beautiful pics of the black eyed susans and so sorry about the washer woes. That is something I just cannot do without for very long!

    I think 15 minutes a day is a good minimum for maintaining sanity. More would be better, but that will help a lot.

  7. At least you have pretty fabric and flowers to look at when you're away from the computer and laundromat! Fingers crossed for you.

  8. those flower photos are awesome!!!

  9. Sorry to hear that the washer woes continue. I hope you get it resolved soon.
    Your flower photos are gorgeous!

  10. Good luck as the washer hunt continues...beautiful flowers!
