All I can say about the stash report this week is that life threw me a curve ball in that I was sick for two days. Thankfully it wasn't the flu, but it was some stomach/respiratory thing that came with a massive headache for two days. I made it to the sewing room, but not a lot got done. So though there is some out this week, it's not the big push I was hoping for.
Used last week: 0.52 yards
Used year to date: 57.43 yards
So I'd need to use 2.5 yards to break 60 yards out for the year. I'll never say never, but it's not likely. I'll give a full accounting in my 2017 wrap up post later this week.
Now for the other part of the stash stuff. Those who've followed me for while know that I try to spend 15 minutes every day in the sewing room. That started as a way to deal with a complete lack of sewing mojo back in 2011. That personal challenge to myself was so useful that in March of that year I started up a weekly linky party for anyone who wanted to join me in the challenge of finding 15 minutes of stitching time each day. I stopped the linky party in 2013 as it became too hard for me to reliably write a post that went live on Tuesday and interest waned in the challenge. There's been some interest in some of the newer bloggers I've met in applying the challenge to see if it helps them find time in their busy lives to do more in the sewing room (and some interest from past participants as well). So I'm going to restart the challenge on a trial basis for the first quarter of 2018. Here's the details (and a new button):
When: Linky party will go live on Sundays, as part of my usual stash report
What: Just report how many days of the week you found time to stitch (If you decide 15 minutes is too much or not enough, set your own challenge time). What you count as stitching time is also up to you, I count time in EQ designing projects and making quilt labels as stitching time since it advances a project towards completion.
How: You can track it any way you want to. I'm a spreadsheet kinda gal, so I do my tracking in Excel with way more statistics than anyone could possibly want. But here's what my spreadsheet looks like.
But you could do as well with a bullet journal or whatever tracking tool you use for your quilting projects.
Hope to see you next Sunday for the revived 15 Minute Challenge link up.
Linking up as always with Quiltpaintcreate for the weekly stash update.
