Hey Sunday

Here it is April 21 and it's been in the 50's
and we have a fire in the stove. I can't remember having one for days this late before. Strange weather, but I do like the cooler temperatures.

I have been wanting to share this for months. 
I have since the new year started keeping track of the days and time spent in the sewing room, this doesn't count in handwork or quilting.
Kate over at Life in Pieces has been doing this and I out of curiosity decided to follow her lead and see how much time I do spend sewing.
I have spread sheets that I have to keep track.

These are the last 3 months and since I haven't yet made a tab at the top for me to keep track, here are my current numbers

Days with stitching time this week:  6 out of 7 days 
(missed one this week)
Days with stitching time this month:  20 out of 21 days
Days with stitching time this year:   82 out of 111 days
Success rate:  74%

Hours spent so far to this day 120 hours and 28 min 

Fabric used this week: .50 yards
Fabric used in 2018:  23.75  yards
Fabric purchased in 2018: 27.33 yards
Net fabric out for 2018:  - 3.75 yards

I will share this with Kate 

Today I been sewing down the binding on this 


  1. Love the quilt and the quilting is perfect!

  2. What a pretty quilt and I see 'someone' has already claimed it for their own!!
    and I also do Kate's count--and have a small notebook that I keep track in--though mine is just for hand quilting and my goal is 30 minutes a day--so far this year I think I have missed 6 days--3 I was on vacation and couldn't quilt--
    so welcome to the group--
    enjoy, di

  3. Congrats on the stitching time and the stash busting. I love your rainbow star quilt. Happy stitching!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
