Sunday Summation: January 15, ’23

Stitching Stuff

Kate, from Life in Pieces, is hosting “Stitching Stuff” and the goal is to sew for at least 15 minutes a day. I use Kate’s guideline, but my personal goal is to sew for 30 minutes a day. On those “blah” days, it does motivate me to sit at my machine and 30 minutes often turns into several hours. Thank you Kate for the motivation!

  • January: 15 / 15
  • Percentage: 100%

Stash Report

Donna at Quilt Paint Create hosts a weekly linky party where you can display your stash numbers. This has really kept my stash from growing (somewhat!) Before I buy anything, I am always mindful of the fact that I need to report it on my blog … That sometimes stops me in my tracks!

In 2023, I haven’t finished any projects, so haven’t used any fabric, but I haven’t bought any either!

  • Fabric Used this week:    yards
  • Fabric Used in 2023:       0 yards
  • Fabric Bought this week:  0 yards
  • Fabric Added this year:    0 yards 
  • Net Fabric used:                0 yards 

Just an FYI: I do not count any fabric that is given to me (Island Batik), but this year, I am going to count it as fabric used.

  3. You had very productive week. You are on track with your stitching time and stash metrics (nothing in, but looks like you’ll have a bunch out soon). Your Chilhowie looks great. I’m way behind on my version. Happy stitching this week.

    • Thanks for hosting Monday This and That!!! It’s only productive when I have time to sew! Right now, I have to work around when we have company staying overnight … but it’s doable! 🙂
