It hasn't been the best week for stitching. As expected, work stuff took over a few evenings, so there wasn't a lot of time spent in the sewing room. I did manage to get in my 15 minutes each night, but that was about it. So stitching happened for 7 out of 7 days this week. But it really was just 15 minutes each night, so no much got done. The stash report pretty much shows that.
Used last week: 0.37 yards
Used year to date: 50.14 yards
I've broken the 50 yards out milestone. I'm hoping to reach 60 yards out for the year. My goal was 75 yards, but at this point, that's probably not happening. Though the stash goal isn't going so well, finding time to stitch has gone well in 2017. I'm really happy with finishing six projects so far this year.
While hanging out with the SIT as she did homework, I used part of my time to start getting a label ready for En Provence. I'm still sewing blocks together into rows but I'm hopeful it will be ready for quilting next month. Here's two options for that label:
I like both labels. A lot will depend on what I choose for the backing fabric. Do you always keep the name of a pattern or mystery quilt along as the name of your quilt? I'm struggling a bit with these labels as the fabrics I used for En Provence are Asian themed. The backing fabric I have in mind is left over from a previous project that used some of the fabrics that show up in the En Provence blocks. Here's the proposed backing fabric:
