Week 48

Can you believe the year is almost over!!!

Fabric In This Week: 3 yards
Fabric In This Year: 126.826 yards

Fabric Out This Week: 7.333 yards
Fabric Out This Year: 201.334 yards

Total Fabric Busted This Year: 74.508 yards

I am not sure if I will make my goal of 104 yards busted. I am still 30 yards away. I will try. I know I can get to 90 yards. That will be my big push. I am still hoping for 104 yards though.

My goal this week will be 5 yards. I think I am aiming high but it is worth a try. I hope to finish another project for a client, a pillow case and a crib sheet.

Let's See What I Get Done!

Okay back to the 70 yard mark. I hope to bust 10 yards this week. I want the 80 yard mark.

The up side is I have finished the Queen Quilt for the client and I am hoping to get it to my quilter this weekend. I am waiting for the go ahead from the client. I have one more client to sew for and it is an apron, hoping to get that done this week too.

Then sewing for me! I have a wall hanging that I need to finish and mail by Friday and I have started a Bento Box for me. This is the first time I have made one, so far I really like it. I found a cheater way to do it. I would like the top of that done this weekend too.

I will gladly take more clients.

Dang almost back to 70 yards! And I have already bought fabric this week! Good news I have made a lot of progress on the Client Queen Quilt for Christmas. Plus I have another client for Christmas!

Goals this week is to bust yards from my stash. Plus get some what caught up on my quilt for an hour project with Judy. I haven't worked on it in over a week! The last goal is to get 15 things posted in my Etsy Shop Kumquat Kewtie. It got neglected while I finished being pregnant.

Week 45

Fabric In This Week: 7.25 yards
Fabric In This Year: 119.076 yards

Fabric Out This Week: 12.207 yards
Fabric Out This Year: 186.043 yards

Total Busted This Year: 66.967 yards

Okay so it will be a slow climb back to that 104 yards by the end of the year. I will make it! Less than 40 yards to go and I have 7 weeks to do it in. I CAN DO IT!

That 7.25 yards purchase was the rest of the fabric I needed for Judy's current Quilt For an Hour Project. Mine looks like nothing I have made before! I tried Judy's advise of getting a print that you like and pulling the colors from there. I liked the stripe that my client gave me to use in her quilt, so I grabbed it and went and matched colors. I will get some of the stripe to use as my binding.

I also sent one of my quilts to a new quilter this week, I am trying a new to me quilter. So that was 6 yards for a back out of the stash. Maybe I can get another one to a quilter before the end of the year, hmmm.

This next week I am hoping to get all the blocks for the client quilt done, which will bust no stash, plus Scott is leaving for Iraq, so no child care. I am hoping for 10 yards but I think 5 yards is my reality.

Check back next week and see if it is 5 or 10 yards.

Fabric In This Year: 111.826 yards

Fabric Out This Week: 1.625 yards
Fabric Out This Year: 173.736 yards

Total Busted This Year: 61.910 yards.

Bad news, my busted numbers are going in the wrong direction. I should have been at 88 yards busted for the year as of this week. Which means I am buying more than I am currently using and I 26 yards behind my goal. CRAP!

I did buy fabric this week for 2 new projects. First project is for a Lime Zinger Quilt, spin off of the Red Zinger quilt I am using Lime fabric though. With this said anyone who would like to donate their selvage edges to me I would be very happy! I do need about of 1/4" into the fabric plus the printed edge. The second project that I bought fabric for was Judy's new Quilt For Hour that starts tomorrow.

New goal this week I NEED to use 15 yards this week. I am think I wont make it but it is worth a try! Did I mention that I also need to start a client's quilt this week?
