Stash Sunday and June – Get It Done!

I haven’t done my stash report the last few weeks. I have only unpacked the bare essentials to live and work. Life is crazy. We had a washing machine overflow a couple of weeks ago so the house flooded and now we’re waiting on the floors getting done before we unpack everything. I do have my sewing machine out to keep me sane (it’s one of those bare essentials!) So I’ve finished up a few things on my goal list this month. But before I move on to my goals I’ll catch up on my stash report. I haven’t used any yardage as they are all packed up. I did purchase 6 yards for a class I enrolled in (before the floors flooded). But last week they called to tell me I was the only one enrolled so they cancelled the class. I was sad but at the same time – the universe works in mysterious ways as I’m crazy woman right now. Well not me – just everything around me. I had to pack everything that we had unpacked back up so that when the floor guys come Friday to fix the floors there aren’t a lot of loose stuff around. And I only kept out one project for me to work on. So with that over the last few weeks I used a big fat ZERO and purchased 6 yards!

Used these last few Weeks (since the last report): 0 yards
Used year to Date: 1 yards
Added these last few Weeks: 6 yards
Added Year to Date: 41 yards
Net Used for 2013: 34 yards

see more stash reports at Patchwork Times.

SPOILER ALERT – I purchased fabric on the internet Friday that is due to arrive Monday or Tuesday so next week’s report will more added yardage! I don’t think I have a whole lot of fabric around so I think that’s okay. Well – all my fabric is stored away so I can’t actually see how much fabric I have. Maybe I have a whole lot I don’t know. When I am able to unpack everything I plan on counting up all the yardage so I can find out. How much total fabric do you have? I want to know if mine is a lot, a little, or about average!

June – Get it done!
With everything that has happened the last few weeks I am proud to say that I got 2 of the items on my list done.
Goal #1- put that label on Jacob’s crib quilt. – DONE
Goal #2- hand quilt one block on my first quilt – DONE
Goal #3- finish quilting Kayla’s quilt – HALF DONE
Goal#4- finish the next step for Easy Street – DIDN’T EVEN GET TO THIS.

I really like “getting it done” with Judy. By putting listing my goals I try to focus on getting them done so I can say what I’ve got done. I was able to finish #1 pretty quickly and #2 not as quickly but it got done. Goal #3 took much longer than I thought it would. Partly because I needed to buy a new foot to get it going. I really hate the quilting on the quilt. It is my thirties quilt that I am making for my daughter and I finished the top a couple of years ago. And I believe I posted the back story as to why I haven’t quilted it but I decided that I have no more excuses and to just get it done. It’s really only my second attempt at quilting so I am cutting myself some slack. I will learn from this attempt and hopefully my third will be much better. Here are my goals for July:
#1 – Finish quilting Kayla’s quilt
#2 – next step for Easy Street – I checked and I am on the last step. woohooo!!
#3 – Hand quilt the sashes on the first quilt
#4 – one block for “Raining Cats and Dogs”

    • Thank you so much! Yes, hand quilting is relaxing but I’m not as proficient with it as I’d like to be. I’m sure that will change the more I do… I just have to barrel through it. 🙂 Happy July!
