July 26th, 2020 - Everyone Needs A Little SISU

Remember last week when I posted this picture

I also posted on FaceBook in the SISU group I belong to. Well, I can’t believe how many people liked the mask and wanted one. So I have been very busy these last couple of days making these masks.

I had both my embroidery machines running. It was actually pretty neat how it all worked out. Lots of jump stitches to cut. And then all that trimming and turning right side out. But I have them all done, ready to be shipped out tomorrow.

So here is my stash report.

Fabric used this week: 5.87 yds

Fabric used YTD: 177.29 yds

Fabric added this week: 3.25 yds

Fabric added YTD: 140.5 yds

Net fabric busted: 36.79 yds

The only reason I bought fabric was for the lining of the masks. I wanted it to match the stitching. If I was just making one or two masks, I would have used bits from the stash. I do have another possible order for custom embroidered masks and I will have to purchase fabric for them as it’s a specific colour and a solid. But that’s next week.

In the 15 Minutes To Stitch challenge, I did pretty good this week. I longarm quilted a quilt for a friend on Tuesday but can’t show it yet as she hasn’t seen it. Worked on a little bit of cross stitch on Wednesday. Then I have been making masks non-stop since Thursday, 8 to 12 hours per day. I already have more orders today so that will keep me busy for a few hours.

I’m linking up to Kate at Life inPieces for the 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge and with Donna at quiltpaintcreate for the stash report.

Have a great week and enjoy the beautiful weather!
