It's the fifteenth week of 2018. A third of the year is almost over! Wow, how did that happen? But I'm getting off topic, it's end of the 15th week so it's time to stop and take stock of how much sewing room time we were able to fit in this week.
I did well this week at finding time to stitch for at least 15 minutes each day. Here's how the all the stats look as of this week:
Days with stitching time this week: 7 out of 7 days
Days with stitching time this month: 14 out of 14 days
Days with stitching time this year: 96 out of 104 days
Success rate: 92.3%
Having time to stitch has been nice. The backing for En Provence has been prepped for quilting. The plan is to do the same for the flimsy today. Since bending over the cutting table takes a toll on my back, I took a break last night from all the prepping and finished the binding in Geek Chic. I hope to get pictures for tomorrow's post this afternoon if the sun comes out. You can link up your stitching report at the bottom of the post.
It was a successful week on the de-stashing front as well.
Fabric used this week: 5.19 yards
Fabric used in 2018: 5.58 yards
Fabric purchased this week: 2 yards
Fabric purchased in 2018: 6 yards
Net Fabric out for 2018: 15.77 yards
The incoming fabric is intended to be the border for Vintage Dresses. Nothing in the stash worked well and I didn't want to just settle. I did allow myself an incoming stash budget of 20 yards for the year, so I'm still on track with my stash busting goals even with the addition. Hopefully most of it will be going right back out. Linking up with Quiltpaintcreate for this week's stash report.
I'll close with a sign of spring in Oklahoma that's typical; the brilliant sunsets we get due to the smoke from all the farmers burning off their fields.
At least there is something colorful to look at since the flowers haven't really been doing much as yet. Hopefully we will start to see more signs of spring in the US this week.
