I haven’t touched “staycation” since last weekend so no progress there and I haven’t taken any pictures. My Q20 is in my bedroom right next to the sliding glass door. During sunny days that lets great light into the room and I’m able to quilt with no problems. The past week has been rainy and overcast for Southern California so it’s been dark in my room. I’ve been super busy with work and other crafty stuff that by the time I decide to go to my room to quilt, it’s too dark to do anything. I tried. Today, I meant to do it early enough before it got dark. But some other inspiring things happened that meant I was out in the garden during the sunny time of the day. That’s for another post. For now, I’ve got nothing yet for finished yardage.
Last week, I made a mask for my hubby. My intent was to finish more masks so I can claim a yard used. Unfortunately, he wanted me to make more alterations to my mask recipe for him. So I did one more mask for him. He’ll use it this week and hopefully will be happy with it. And next week I can make a few more for him with this new recipe. So I made one mask last week and a second mask this week which is great but not enough to claim a yard used or even a quarter yard used. Maybe a quarter? I’ll just keep these percolating and hopefully soon I’ll be able to make it a yard used. 🙂
Another week with zero used and zero added. But, I am planning to go to my LQS to buy fabric. I joined the Simple Days Embroidery BOM that started this week (Thanks Susan!) and I originally intended to use stash. But last night I was preparing the first block and I had something else in mind and I while I could probably scrounge together the fabric couldn’t scrounge together enough of the background fabric I want. Just a warning that I’ll be having some added fabric next week. At least this is intentional and not on the whim purchases. 🙂
Go to more stash reports at QuiltPaintCreate who now hosts the Sunday Stash. I’ll be linking up there this morning.
The fabric stash:
- Used since last time: 0 yards
- Used year to date: 1 yards
- Added since last time: 0 yards
- Added year to Date: 7 yards
- Net added for 2021: 6 yards
I have a finish! I still need to take glamour shots but with the overcast I mentioned, the lighting has not been great.
Here’s what it looked like the last time I posted it:
I still need to weave in my ends and block it. But I’m working on the weaving in a bit at a time at my Thursday knit night and once that is done I can block it. This is 900 yards and with fingering skein that’s a little over 2 skeins. I’m just going to round it up to 3 skeins since I would have had to wind 3 skeins. So… 3 skeins used! yay!
The yarn stash:
- Used since last time: 3 skeins
- Used year to date: 5 skeins
- Added since last time: 0 skeins
- Added year to date: 0 skeins
- Net used for 2021: 5 skeins
~Have a quilty week!

Good yarn usage for the month. Looking forward to watching your progress on the BOM.
The Simple days BOM is very tempting, especially that it comes out at the end of the month. I have two current BOMs that are sent mid month. This embroidery appliqué pattern is so pretty, I think I’m going to get the first one and see if I can squeeze it into my rotation. 😉
