Guess What? Late Again!

Hey all!  I know, I was doing so great reporting my fabric usage faithfully every Friday afternoon…  But I’m only less than a day late this time, and I have a great excuse.  Remember last week when I told you about being away then my hubby being sick?  Well, later that very day, I came down with his plague.  And it was AWFUL!  This morning was the first day since Tuesday that I could actually get up and get anything done.  We got our taxes mailed in (nothing like waiting until the last couple of days), got some soda, watched the giraffe baby, had breakfast and fixed our mailbox, which had been knocked off of it’s post by the snow plow in the last storm we had a few weeks ago.

That brings me up to now, when I’m actually in my studio for the first time all week!  Obviously since I was suffering with the plague, nothing got done this week in the studio, nothing in or out…  So here’s the rundown:

Fabric in this week:  0
Fabric out this week:  0
Net Fabric this week:  0
Net Fabric 2017:  7.367

So I’m stuck at positive Seven yards and some change for the year.  I have not yet started on any of my 2nd quarter goals, but I have got an idea for a quilt that I want to make very soon, possibly for submission into Quilt-Con!  I have some serious planning to do before that one actually comes to life, though.  Stay tuned…  And until next time,

Piece!

Hey Yes, it’s Tuesday

And I am 4 days late posting my Fabric Friday.  I was out of town with my hubby on our Anniversary trip.  It was very nice and relaxing to get away for a couple of days, catch up on some sleep and get away.  Although that, and my husband being home sick yesterday have set me behind.

So to catch it up, there is nothing to report from last week! 🙂

Fabric in this week:  0
Fabric out this week:  0
Net Fabric this week:  0
Net Fabric 2017:  7.367

So I’m still up by 7+ yards.  Last week, I just didn’t get anything done.  We were out of town Monday and Friday.  I did get fabric pulled and strips cut for the quilt that I have on order, but between catching up on paying bills, buying oil, and a few other “adulating” type things, I didn’t get any further than that.

So what am I up to today?  Well, I spent a good portion of the morning gathering all of my supplies for Quilt Week Paducah!  I’m so excited to be leaving in about 2 weeks!  I also have spent some time cleaning up my studio, which becomes a bit of a dumping ground when I’m busy.  I got my sewing cabinet *mostly* cleared off and my cutting table…  Well, it’s back to about normal.

The weird weather we’ve been having brought snow last weekend, and now we are going to reach almost 80 today.  The dogs are enjoying the freedom of wandering between house and yard as I can leave the doors open for them to come and go.  This is my favorite time of year, when I can turn the furnace off, before the A/C’s have to be put in.  I dare-say it’s the dogs favorite time of year as well when they can come and go as they please all day.

With that, I must be away.  I have smell more picking up and cleaning to get done, and it is somehow refusing to do itself.  Booo…  Keep on sewing, and until next time…

Piece!
