Sunday Stash Report and May/June Goals

Nothing in, nothing out this week, but that should change next week, as I finish this Scrap-in-a-Box quilt.

This week:  + 0 yards,  – 0 yards
This year:  + 57.5 yards,  – 81.25 yards
Net fabric destashed  in 2015:  23.75 yards


I did well on my goals this month.  Some quilters are doing theirs weekly.  I can see where this could work well, especially if you have a busy, structured work week, and this helps you accomplish some specific tasks.  In my retired (and DH retired) state, my days and weeks are more free-form and less predictable.  Some weeks I get lots of sewing time and really burn through projects.  Others seem to hold nothing but family gatherings, outings, trips, etc., and I get little done.  And I’m trying to be okay with that.  So the monthly goals give me more flexibility, but still some focus.

May Goals

1.  Audit Jinny Beyer BOM Craftsy Class.  Yes, all caught up.  I’ve lost interest in piecing any, though.

2.   Complete the top for  Charlotte’s Scrap in a Box Mystery Quilt.   Yes, on this post.  Now I’m quilting it.

3.  Assemble and quilt the pink and gray scrappy log cabin quilt.  Yes! See it here.

4.  Design and piece a beach-themed throw-size quilt.  Yes, and quilted.  It’s here.

June Goals

1.   Audit Jinny Beyer BOM Craftsy Class.

2.   Quilt and bind  Charlotte’s Scrap in a Box Mystery Quilt.

3.   Attempt a photo transfer technique for a Coastal wall hanging.

4.  Assemble quilt blue and gold leaders and enders units into a top.

I’m linking up to Judy’s fabric report at Patchwork Times.

  1. I haven’t been putting the link to Judy because for ages I couldn’t find one for this year. I clicked on your link though and saw it was live so shall get back into the habit of doing it. Was she slow starting this year?

    As to goals – yes I have been setting monthly goals but report back in on how I have gone a bit at whim… sometimes weekly but usually mid month and then a week after that (so as to be able to report some progress) Weekly is a bit hit and miss for me… you think that you’ll have free time and it gets absorbed or you think you will be flat tack and suddenly all this vista of spare time arises to meet you (we can dream) There is also the mojo factor – you feel like sewing or you don’t feel like sewing
