Sunday Stash Report, Week 3 of 2013

Nothing in since my last report, only 1 item finished...but it's better than nothing! (which is where I thought I was at)
 
Added this week: 0 metres
Added Year to Date: 18.25 metres
 
My finish - a cushion for Zoey's rocking chair - made from the scraps of her bedroom set.  I have enough left to make a pillow in the Trip-around-the-world pattern (almost finished!), then what's left goes in the scrap bins (although a few pieces have already made it into the Easy Street quilt).  This little cushion only measures 6.5 x 9 inches, plus the ruffle, about a fat quarter's worth of fabric.
 
Used since last report: .25 metres
Used Year to Date: .75 metres
Net Used/Added for 2013: 17.5 metres
 
I didn't get much this week as I have had to refocus my efforts on working from my home office as a mortgage broker.  It's been about 4 months since I was laid off, and there aren't a lot of jobs available for my skill set (plus I did miss the freedom of working for myself). I find it difficult to be accountable to myself, but I have been working on making a schedule and sticking to it.  I've also stepped up my efforts with my Creative Memories business to add that extra income until the economy improves (which is slowly happening here, not that it was as bad as most other areas - we were so fortunate). That meant this past weekend was spent hosting a scrapbooking weekend - what a lot of fun we have, and I am reinvigorated to work on my own photo albums - now I just have to fit that in too!

  1. I wish you all the best as you begin this new venture!

    Ah, yes, scrap booking. I have all my supplies but my motivation is gone as is the time which is now used for more fibre-y pursuits! I'm glad you had a great weekend and have renewed your motivation.
