 Hey everybody, it’s week 42 and do you know what that means? Only 10 more weeks until the new year! How time flies when you’re having fun. It also means I better use a whole lot of fabric up if I want to meet my goal of 100 yards busted. At least I’m out of the negatives this week and I have no real plans on buying any fabric either. No fabric, no fabric, no fabric will be my mantra for the next 10 weeks. Okay, so I’m a week behind. Just checking to see if anyone noticed. Apparently it’s week 43.

Fabric used this week: 2.405 yds

Fabric used YTD: 166.05 yds

Fabric added this week: 0 yds

Fabric added YTD: 165.86 yds

Net fabric busted: 0.245 yds

 This week I’m planning on cutting some bindings and backings for a few quilts.  I have 8 quilts that need to be quilted, of those 3 need binding and 3 need backing. So if I get these done, that will eat up a lot of fabric. Yeah!

   I’m waiting to get my table finished for my new machine. My neighbour came over to look at the old table and we discussed what I would like for the revamped version. He can’t start it until tomorrow and then I have to paint it up so it might not be done until next weekend. Then I’ll be ready to quilt some of the smaller tops I have on hand. Right now the new machine is upstairs in the dining room and everything else is down 2 levels in the basement. Once I have everything set up the way I would like it, I’ll be ready to sew. I can’t wait!

    I can’t believe there are only 10 weeks left – I really have to get going. Good luck with your new sewing table and the quilting of the next 8 quilts. You can do it!

    Um yep, better get crackin’, lol! Be sure to take a pic of your new table, ok?

    Only 10 weeks left? Good grief. But you will use a lot of fabric with three backings. If they are large quilts you could be well on your to to busting 100. Problem is it is so easy to buy and so hard (time consuming) to use up. Good luck!
