It's been a nice week of stitching, visiting and eating lots of good food. The Scientist in Training has been home for the long weekend and we've had a lot of fun hanging out together. She heads back to school after lunch, so I'll head to the sewing room then. I've not had a chance to get started on Bonnie Hunter's mystery, so that will be the first order of business today.
There was some stitching going on every day this week. Though I reverted to hand stitching over the holiday weekend as that's both portable and more socially acceptable. So far for 2017, I've found at least 15 minutes of stitching time 91.2% of the year. Hopefully I can maintain that as we head into the busy holiday season.
Fabric usage was up this week. Those never ending 4-patch borders for En Provence probably had something to do with it.
Used last week: 1.19 yards
Used year to date: 54.26 yards
I'm still way off my goal of using 70 yards for the year. At this point I'm just hoping to break 60 yards out for the year.
I've written before about my geeky spreadsheet of quilting metrics. One of my working theories has always been the more time I spend in the sewing room, the more fabric I would use. Here's how that looks for my sewing time versus fabric out over the years.
There does seem to be a trend for 2014, 2015, and 2016, but the theory that more fabric is used with more time in the sewing room doesn't seem to hold for this year. And that's with 7 finishes this year versus just 4 last year. Hmmm, obviously it's not a simple correlation.
Linking up with Quiltpaintcreate for the weekly stash report.
