Work took up several evenings this week. It was hard to make the trek up the stairs to the sewing room a couple of nights, but I did manage to eek out 15 minutes each night.
15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
15 minute days/July = 19/20 days
15 minute days/2019 = 177/201 days
Success rate = 88.06%
Lack of sewing machine time makes for an anemic stash report.
Fabric out this week = 0.38 yards
Fabric out for 2019 = 29.54 yards
More fabric in than out
At least there is a bit out, that beats the nothing out from last week.
There's a new mystery quilt along starting up this month, the Mosaic Mystery Quilt along over at Meadow Mist Designs.
This will be the 4th Meadow Mist Designs mystery quilt along I've done. It's one clue a month, so that works in my schedule. Cheryl's directions are always so clear and she makes it easy to pick a good fabric combination. Here's my fabric selection for the quilt along.
The neutral on the left is the background and the purple will be the border (unless I have enough of the butterfly fabric). The gold at the top is a left over from a previous project. The butterfly print and the dark purple are from the stash. I have no idea how old either is. It will be good to get both out of the stash and into a project. If Cheryl follows past practice, August's clue will be the cutting instructions. So there's plenty of time to play along if you are looking for a project to use up some stash.
I'm off on a business trip this week, thankfully it's only two days. That should be it for work related travel this year. I'm ready for things to slow down a bit. I'm hoping for a nothing but sewing day next Sunday. We'll see how that goes.
So how well did you manage your stitching time this week?
