Stitching time - week 3 1/11-17

I managed to finish Susan's #1 complete with binding but no label yet.  All 3 of her quilts are similar.  Her dad was an Auburn Alum.  Only the large Auburn block is different in the first 2. And the 3rd child is an LSU fan so his sashing is different.  Here's #1...



2021 STASH TOTALS
Used last week:                             11.9 yards

15 minutes per day this week = 5/7 days

Percentage - 82%

I didn't make it to the sewing room on Friday or Saturday this week. On Saturday, DH and I decided to take a road trip.  Our state doesn't have a lottery so we took a road trip to go to the state line and buy a few lottery tickets.  I know it's not the most logical thing to do but it gives us some time together that's not in front of the television.  Then we stopped to eat dinner out.  It was a nice day.  Normally Saturday is my day to clean house then do what I love.

I did get into the sewing room today.  I may need to get into the sewing room early in the morning so I can report without being late for the party.  Sunday is my day to buy my MIL's groceries (she's 90), do DH's bookkeeping (he's self employed) and then go grocery shopping a second time to get our groceries.  Believe me, if grocery delivery was available, I would use it.  We barely have pickup and then it's hit or miss.  Mostly miss, thus, go shopping.

Tomorrow is Martin Luther King/Robert E Lee day so I should have some sewing time.  I have made a list of things I want to accomplish in the sewing room but I also have to take my old vehicle to the dealership to see if they will buy it.

Today is day 49 of not smoking and I haven't gained a pound.  I sure hope I can keep it up.


Wishing you more stitching time than I will have.

Time to Stitch: Week 2 of 2021, January 4-10

 

The only day I didn't stitch this week was my birthday.  I met a friend for drinks after work instead.

My sewing room gives me solace between working and working cooking dinner so unless there is something special going on I should be able to spend AT LEAST 15 minutes in it.


15 minutes per day this week = 6/7 days
15 minutes per day in January = 9/10 days
15 minutes per day in 2021 = 9/10 days

Percentage - 90%


I'm gonna try this stash report too

2021 Stash Totals
Used last week:            0.0 yards
Used year to date:      0.0 yards
Added last week:        0.0 yards
Added year to date:    0.0 yards
Net used year to date:    0.0 yards

My plan is to count the tops that are already pieced when they are finished and anything new as it is pieced. 

My question to you is this.  If I paid for it last year but it hasn't arrived yet do I have to count it as fabric in when it arrives?

Wishing you more stitching time than I will have.

15 Minutes to Stitch

 I'm joining Life in Pieces this year for 15 minutes to stitch.  I know I can keep up with the stitching but I hope I can keep up with the posting and linking.

My week starts on Monday so my number of days will be a little different. 



15 minutes per day this week = 3/3 days
15 minutes per day in January = 3/3 days
15 minutes per day in 2021 = 3/3 days

Percentage - 100%




I would love to join the stash reports but I'm not sure how to calculate a scrap quilt and do you only count if the project is completed?  If someone could help me with that I would greatly appreciate it.

As far as my resolution,(Baste within a week of completing a flimsy) I completed a flimsy and got it basted 2 days later.  And I completed another flimsy and have the backing ready to baste.  Th
at will be done by the time next weekend is over.




Wishing you more quilting time than I will have.
