It’s that time again! I was good this week.
Well, kinda. 😉
I used fabric, had a few finishes, but I did add a bit of yarn. In my defense – it was a bargain I couldn’t pass up!
Fabric Used (or removed) this Week: 1 yard
Fabric Used year to Date: 7 1/3 yards
Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 8.5 yards + 3 panels
Net Fabric for 2017: 3 panels ADDED + 1 3/8 yards USED
I’m not sure how to count the panels so I figured I’d just keep them listed separate from regular yardage since most of the time they are less than a yard.
The yard of fabric I used was the heavy denim I used to make my little girl’s skirt that I shared the how-to for on Tuesday. It’s not quite done in the photo. My bff is adding an embroidered unicorn on it and then once I get it back from her I’m going to add some decorative, big running stitches in a corresponding thread. (Plus I have to wash it so the elastic will go back to normal – it’s stretched out in the photo from sewing it.)
Instead of tossing the leftover bits into my scrap drawer/tote, I had an idea in mind for a mini quilt and I cut the remnants into strips right away. Now to find the perfect fabric in my stash to go with it so that my vision can come to life. And, since I must use it all up – the little strips on the left are going into my small scrap bin that I use for applique and the tiny bits on the right are going to be saved to be used as stuffing. See – that’s what I mean by I can’t throw away even the smallest of the scraps. LOL
Yarn Used (or removed) this Week: 200 yards
Yarn Used year to Date: 1,420 yards
Yarn Added this Week: 910 yards
Yarn Added Year to Date: 2,954 yards
Net Yarn for 2017: 1,534 yards ADDED
The yarn I used was for the tops of the 4 dresses I’m making for my little girl. I finally got a battery for my scale and weighed it. 🙂
The yarn I added was 3 skeins I found at the flea market when my bff came over and we went out for a girl’s afternoon to a Mexican restaurant for lunch, then to the flea market and thrift store to waste time (& money). I spent less for those 3 skeins than I would have spent for 1 cheap skein at Wal-Mart.
She threatened to tell on me if I didn’t include these in my weekly report. ROFL (pssst -hey bff – ya know I love ya!)
