Sunday Stash Report and August/September Goals

Leave a comment

The good news is that only one quarter yard came in this week!  And I used three and a half yards to remake the Star Wars baby quilt.  Grrr.  A post about that later.  Anyway, I’m moving that stash out a little at a time.

This week:  + .25 yards,  – 3.50 yards
This year:  + 91.75 yards,  – 119.25 yards
Net fabric destashed  in 2015:  27.75 yards

I give myself a C- on this month’s goals:

August Goals

1.  Complete coastal wall hanging.  Almost!  I have it partially quilted.

2.  Work on UFO geometric wall hanging.  No.  Haven’t even looked at it.

3.  Make a top from my new Christmas fabrics.  Looking at these tutorials:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tkm3nCferp4  and  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSKQhzZYwFw  from Missouri Star.  Yes!  The top is finished, as well as the back, and ready to be sandwiched.

4.  Source little zippers for earbud pouches.  No.  Kinda lost interest in these, though they are cute.

I think I could have finished this list, think I would have, except for the commissioned baby quilt.  Still think I would have, except for having to remake the baby quilt.  And somewhere in there I took a break to make six scrappy blocks for Kat’s August block drive (mine have that blushing batik in them) .  Here is what she’s doing for September.

September Goals

  1.  Finish coastal wall hanging.
  2. Quilt and bind Christmas quilt.
  3. Make a baby quilt from some floral scraps I’ve pulled together, probably D4P.
  4. Work on UFO wall hanging

How are you doing on your sewing goals?  A busy, busy time, but things should start to settle down this month.  Good luck and enjoy!

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