Sunday Stash June 10, 2018

No fabric in or out and no money spent this week.
The full scope of the work changes became more clear this week. It will be months before things even out again.
My small group also decided to stop meeting. I really liked that group, and I’m sad to see it end.
Now I’m looking at the June The Short List and realizing my projects don’t work that well for me, and I need to add Safehouse quilts back to the list. I’m also looking at less time in the sewing room.
It will all work it out eventually. So much change at once just created unexpected challenges.
My new focus is to cut all the pieces for the floral runner and fuse them. I need to be able to move the quilt and reclaim my piecing table.
I’m also considering my next Safehouse quilt. I started one at a guild sewing day but don’t know if I want to work on that one or a different one. I sewed some of the blocks but haven’t cut anything yet. I may even get two quilts out of it because a lot of the fabric is red and blue, and the spattering of other colors look out of place.
HST blocksThe unsewn pieces are on the right, the sewn on the left. You are seeing the back of the sewn fabrics. They are much brighter.
That will be a decision for another day.
Fabric In: 5.25 yards
Fabric Out: 9.25 yards
Net Fabric Used: 4 yards
Quilt & embroidery spending: $110

    At least I didn’t buy any yarn or fabric this week! And a little got used up, so it’s all good. Hope your days even out soon, change can be a challenge.

    It’s always frustrating when changes at work impact things at home. Hope things even out quicker than you anticipate.

    I hope things at work straighten out for you. That kind of tension comes home with you. I like your children’s fabrics and think I have a couple of them too. I hope your sewing this weekend is relaxing.

    It sounds like you have a lot going on. During my times of challenges, I find myself doing more hand sewing. Hence, little is getting finished in my world. But, I’m starting not to worry about numbers….. Your quilts are lovely and going to a great cause! Take good care!

    Good control on the fabric and money, even if schedules are messed up. I like the colors and prints in your photo, so I look forward to seeing what you decide to do.
