Stash Report Week 5

Well I can't say that I got any sewing done. Although I did get some towels embroidered. Some didn't look so great but thats okay. They weren't that expensive and Keith says that we can use them in our Kitchen.. LOL. Turns out the tension was off on the new embroidery machine so it went in for servicing yesterday. Hopefully they won't have to order any parts.

Back to the stash report. I received in the mail this week 2 packages with fabric and Keith bought me a Kit. Yes I ordered them both of the ones from the mail with projects in mind or should I say giftee's in mind. I need to get another turnover so that I know that I have enough to find a project for the other one. Have any ideas of a "Holly Jolly Snowmen" Turnover? Let me know. I want to make some easy tops that Keith and I will be able to display at some point and time. Did you know that there is about (rough estimate) 0.8 yards in a Turnover and 2.8 yards in a Jelly Roll? Well here is the report.. Not great but after some cheering on from Jill I have started marking fabric for projects when I can sew.

Fabric added this week: 7.6
Fabric added year-to-date: 21.85

Fabric used this week: 0.0
Fabric used year-to-date: 2.25

Net Fabric Used: -19.6

I know not great but, hopefully soon I will be able to sew little bits here and there. Crossing fingers I had a few bad days this week so I don't want to push things too far. I know once I can sew I will be pushing things from the stash pile over to the flimsy pile.

Don't rush the recovery - kit up your projects with the patterns so that when you are ready to go - you can jump right in. The most important thing is to get all healed though!!!

And I second Jill - stop buying!!! :-)
