Stitching and DeStashing--Week 51, 2019

Like most of us, this time of year can become very busy and stressful for me. Quilting is my favorite way to relax and decompress. It is also my favorite solution for gifting challenges. Early in the week, I realized that the gift I had ordered for my sister-in-law Jane wasn't going to arrive in time for our gift exchange on Saturday. Beginning Tuesday evening, almost every free minute was spent working on this gift for her.

I used 3/4 yard of fabric from my stash, plus parts of a dozen old ties to make this pillow for Jane. The ties had all belonged to her father, and there may have been a tear or two when she opened her gift.

Used last week:                             .75 yards
Used year to date:                        58.0 yards
Added last week:                            0.0 yards
Added year to date:                    71.75 yards
Net added year to date:          13.75 yards

Kate's 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge at Life in Pieces has us tracking how many days each week we get in at least 15 minutes of quilting time. The tie pillow totally filled my free time this week, the only way to get it done in time!

15 Minute Challenge:  
12/15 - 12/21           7 of 7 days
2019 Total         335 of 355 days
