April 15th, 2018 - Spring?

How about this wacky weather! My sister came for a visit last Saturday and was supposed to go home today but is stuck here until the weather improves. Not that it’s all that bad here in Windsor, just rain right now, but Northern Michigan is a mess. I bet most of Michigan is closed due to inclement weather. At least she’s getting in a really long visit with family and friends.

Now about that stash. We went on a mission yesterday to see if we could find a Kona solid called snow. It’s not white but slightly off with a hint of yellow in it. No one here carries Kona, mostly Northcott solids and I certainly don’t buy that colour, only white because that goes with black the best, so she couldn’t shop my stash. Anyway, I ended up buying more fabric. Some white batik from Cantik and raspberry Toscanna from Northcott and I just love the colour. I will be sure to prewash that before I use it. Here are my numbers and I’m still in the good. Whew!

Fabric used this week: 2.46 yds

Fabric used YTD: 80.09 yds

Fabric added this week: 5.77 yds

Fabric added YTD: 75.91 yds

Net fabric busted: 4.18 yds

As for the amount of time spent in the sewing room, I’m here for hours most days but I’m not working on my stuff but helping my sister get many of her UFOs done. I think we finished 4 already and will probably finish a few more before she gets to go home. That’s okay because I will be cutting out fabric for stuff for my Etsy shop. I’ve collected most of the materials to make a load of items to sell. Wallets, bags, little quilts and the like. So my time spent sewing has been a lot less than normal.

April 1-7 2018: 11 hours

April 8-14 2018: 19.5 hours

It’s still a far amount of time and I’m very fortunate that I’m retired and can spend all this time down here, sewing away in my space with the diffuser misting out Peace and Harmony and my music playing in the background.

I’m linking up with Donna at QuiltPaintCreate for the stash report and Kate at Life In Pieces for 15 Minutes to Sew.  I hope everyone has a great week and spring gets here someday. Tomorrow would be nice!

    Here is NW Ohio, I’d like to see some spring too. It made for a great sewing weekend though. Enjoy the time with your sister.

    Hope your sister is enjoying her visit. Bad weather is no fun, but it is a nice excuse for hanging out in the sewing room.
